How can I make my glasses not hurt my nose so much?
Ive had them adjust twice now and it still hurts. I have a bony piece on my nose that kind of sticks out from a prior injury.

You will have to find an optician to adjust them right.

Someone who has more experience in problem fittings than the one you already went to I guess.

There isn't anything you can do on your own, you will just make it worse, believe me. Adding little sponge pads isn't a solution at all either.

ou're still growing! You probably have had a growth spurt from 12 to 15 years old. Glasses cannot change your bone structure. That's hereditary. They can cause you to have dark marks on your nasal bridge so make sure they fit and compliment your facial shape. five nights at freddy's unblocked, free survival games

If the frame has adjustable pads, then replacing the current pads with larger ones may be appropriate. Of course if the frame selection is inappropriate and did not consider avoiding the bony piece when you first selected it, then you're stuck. In the future remember to make correct nose fit a deal-breaker for any frame. You will avoid much discomfort and many return trips for adjustments if you do so.

If the frame DOES NOT have adjustable nose pads then the selection was inappropriate. I cannot say it enough, It's the fit, the fit, the fit.

Avoid using those stick-on foam pads. They will eventually slide around and thus not perform well not to mention looking hideous.

Having the nosepads replaced with larger/softer ones is a must if you're wearing a metal frame. If it's plastic your only choice may be to put one of those pads on there. They also may just be too tight which could be pulling them against your nose. It it IS a plastic frame and it just plain doesn't fit you you could ask them to switch to a different one but if it's a cheap charlie place they might not be too into that idea. Chain stores will have a hard time doing anything outside of their 'policy' to help you. A good independent place will probably take care of you. If you used one of those insurance plans that rips off the place to begin with they may be less willing to help because they barely got paid anyway. I often ask people to wear them in the store for a little bit to make sure they feel ok first but many don't.

I have ever encountered such problem before; it is really a big trouble to nose to wear glasses. I used to putting tiny cushion pads inside the bridge, but it is inconvenient in my own opinion. You can select the lightest weight glasses that neither sit on the bridge nor leave any pressure marks on the nose.

First of all, it is maybe that your glasses are too heavy for you. There are two reasons: one is that your prescription is very very high so that the glass lenses are accordingly very thick making their weight too heavy, the other reason is that the materials of the frame of your glasses is makde of heavy metal. If you are greatly nearsighted, then you can change your heavy glass lenses for a pair of high index glasses whose glass lenses are much thinner and lighter than ordinary lenses, usually one quarter time thinner and lighter. If it is because the material that makes up the glass frame is too heavy, then you can choose light-material frame such as a plastic one. Secondly, your hurting nose also can be caused by inappropriate nose pads of your glasses; maybe they are not set symmetrically or maybe they are set too close. You can go to the glasses shop to have them examined by the professionals and then adjust them to the right position. In addition, wearing the glasses for too long a time can as well cause discomfort on the nose except in the eyes, because the nose have to bear part of the weight of your glasses without rest. Therefore, you should pay attention not to wear your glasses all day long without rest.

In fact, you totally can buy a new one which is more suitable for your face and head size. If you are wearing a metal frame before, now you can choose a pair of plastic glasses, but if you want to save money, you also can adjust your glasses by yourself, the detail information you can reference in this page. http://www.wikihow.com/Adjust-Eye-Glasses hope this helps.

Well, actually it can be very annoying and hurtful when the eye glasses hurt nose. So you can try some ways to solve it. For example, you can just have some oil on your eyeglasses frames. In that way, it will just make your eye glasses frame gentler. And it will relieve your hurt to nose. Also, just adjust the size of eye glasses, so that it will not be too tight and hurt to your nose can be avoided. Of course, when you buy eye glasses, you should choose glasses which are lighter, so that it will not be a burden on the nose. And of course, hurt to your nose can be impossible.
