New prescription, headaches, eye strain

I recently got a new pair of glasses after 2 years. I have only been wearing glasses for 2 years and I am 22 years old. I needed new glasses so I went and got an eye exam, the optician said my eye improved on my left eye but I was shocked and doubted it since I had trouble with my old glasses at a higher prescription at times. I've been wearing the new pair for 2-3 days and I've been having terrible headaches and eye strain, especially in the eye she said had gotten better. Should I take the glasses back or am I just adjusting?

New Rx =
OD  +1.00
OS  +2.25-1.25x34

(I believe on my old scipt the OS number started with a +3-something.
