Hi, I work for an eye doctor, here is my advise.  A good eye exam is a good idea for all children.  and you would be surprised how many kids need glasses and don't realize it for years.  If she is complaining of these headaches at the end of the day, notice.. is it mostly monday thru friday, or is she complaining of them weekends to?  if it is mostly monday thru friday, it could be headaches caused from eye strain during school.  if it is seven days a  week, it may be more serious then eyes and a good neurological eval may be in order.
