    my son aged four got his 1st pair of glasses yesterday 24hrs later and I had to pick him up from school with a bad headache and nausea. Anyone know if this could be from his glasses?

    I'd agree with that. Could just be his eyes adjusting to the glasses. Once his eyes are used to them, hopefully the headaches will disappear.

    Yes for sure. He may just need to get used to them.
    Dh got a new pair of glasses that made him feel nauseous, he keep saying that he felt off balance. Turned out they had put the wrong shaped lens in. They were supposed to be flat but the put in curved ones. Maybe a good idea just to check with optometrist.

    Yes I would say so. Not sure if your optometrist said this but with our DS we were told (and we did) to allow DS to have as many breaks as he wanted at first and to not let wearing glasses become a stressful thing. After not very long they have longer and longer periods between breaks until they actually ask for their glasses. Not sure if that suits your situation but it worked really well for DS
