Having a new set of frames can be exciting but also uncomfortable at first. This can be because your eyeglasses may be too big, too tight, or just not the right fit for your face. Depending on the issue, it can be remedied on your own, but there may be times when a professional eye doctor is needed to help you find the right pair for your eyes. Some of the common issues with new eyeglasses include:
Feeling Pain Behind Your Ears
This means your eyeglasses are too small for your head or aren’t correctly adjusted. If it’s too tight, it can affect blood circulation and cause headaches. To remedy this, make sure to visit a trusted eye center where an optician can help you adjust your frames according to what suits you best. They can also help you find a pair that fits your face more comfortably!
Having a Low Nose Bridge
Having a low nose bridge can also make your new eyeglasses feel uncomfortable. This makes your eyeglasses feel loose and slip down your nose whenever you tilt your head. Certain frames such as horn-rimmed and rectangular eyeglasses are designed for lower nose bridges, making them stay securely in position even if you tilt your head. You can also consult with a trusted optometrist about other types of eyeglasses that can fit more comfortably on your nose.
Some types of eyeglasses such as metal frames sit on top of the nose with pads to distribute the weight. But they can also leave marks if they’re not set properly. This can be adjusted by yourself so that they’re flush against your face, but when you have it checked at a locally trusted eye care center, they can do it for you. They’ll even recommend a different nose pad material such as vylon, silicone, and acetate.
