Does weak eyesight cause hair fall?

Let’s get one thing straight, folks. This is not your average article about hair fall and weak eyesight. Oh no, we’re going to delve deep into the bizarre relationship between these two seemingly unrelated problems – and do it with a side of humor to keep you entertained along the way.

Hold on tight as we explore this unusual correlation between weak eyesight and hair fall.

What Exactly Is Weak Eyesight?

Before jumping right into whether or not weak eyesight can cause hair loss (spoiler alert: it doesn’t), let’s first define what exactly we mean by “weak eyesight.” The technical term for this condition is refractive error, which means that your eye shape does not bend light properly, leading to blurry vision.

There are three main types of refractive errors:

  • Myopia: also known as nearsightedness, causes difficulty seeing things far away.
  • Hyperopia: also known as farsightedness, causes difficulty seeing things up close.
  • Astigmatism: causes overall blurry vision due to an irregularly shaped cornea.

So while the term “weak eyesight” isn’t technically inaccurate, it’s important to understand what specific type of issue someone may be experiencing with their vision.

Wait… How Can Anyone Even Think These Two Things Are Related?

Ah yes, the million-dollar question. Now before I fully answer this question (which really should simply just be a resounding NO), let me explain where this myth might have originated from in the first place.

While there isn’t any scientific evidence linking poor eye health directly with hair loss – some people believe that if you frequently strain your eyes trying to read or make out pictures/words that are too small or blurry /squint excessively then perhaps over time you might lose some sections of your scalp covering …just maybe with emphasis on JUST MAYBE.

But come on, that’s a major reach. Do you really think the tiny muscles in your eyes are so powerful as to cause hair loss if you overwork them? The short answer is no. So there isn’t much need for further discussion here.

Blow it out of Proportion Much?

While I will concede that any medical issue can be scary and frustrating to deal with, especially one like hair fall which almost everyone considers being unwelcome. Those who were convinced weak eyesight could be causing their follicles to abandon ship (Hint: they’re not) would do well to remember that when it comes to health issues – some people get lucky while others don’t.

It simply means this – you took an L today; ye shall live another day!

Uncovering The Real Reason For Hair Loss

So now we know for certain that even though weak eyesight may have its drawbacks (aka blurry vision), it has nothing to do with hair loss…

Alright, let’s face the real head-scratcher here – what actually causes your luscious locks from falling off?

The most common reason for why someone starts shedding more than usual is an abnormal increase in testosterone levels or precipitously having dum dum duuumm high-stress levels!

Yup- these two nemeses can trigger hormonal changes or conditions such as alopecia and trichotillomania both notorious culprits behind pattern baldness/ thinning edges /receding hairline/hair strands coming out at every stroke of the comb which by any standard is nowhere near a trivial thing people, sorry about my rant let us continue:

Other reasons responsible for fluctuations in scalp coverage include poor nutrition/hereditary factors/harsh chemical treatments/frequent use of styling products including tight hairstyles/certain medications/poor sleep habits/genetics etc

Simply put-, if all other signs point to having a rectifyable issue like high blood pressure or anemia then getting treatment for that may help restore your hair growth. If, however medically there is no root cause then switching those stressful jobs and lifestyles might significantly reduce shedding too.

Treatments Options

In any case, several treatment options are available to anyone experiencing hair loss straight from the modern pharmacy to-ermmm…relaxing music?- some people believe veggie diets improve scalp coverage while others explore naturopathic methods but just be careful not all recommended cures out here work!

Some clinically proven treatments include topical ointment solutions such as minoxidil/ low-level laser therapy /hair transplants/hair concealers/toppik powders/wigs/extensions et al depending on your budget size of course!


At last, we have come full circle in exploring whether weak eyesight actually causes hair fall (it doesn’t), explained what weak eyesight really means, and discovered the actual reasons behind this common malady.

Let’s leave you with one simple thought – if at first something sounds crazy unlikely it probably is. So go ahead grab that textbook or stay up late watching shows on your tablet but please do get plenty of soup when you feel ill without fear – together we shall just Maybe rise over our failing follicles!
