I wonder because it's always my left eye and that makes me worry......
Glasses are really hurting my nose is this normal?
I just got glasses on sunday and I've been wearing them the only probably is that they hurt my nose really bad, it feels like its swollen and my sinuses kinda hurt to. Are the frames to tight on my nose? or do I just need to get used to glasses?
I'd try to wear them for the rest of this week, to kind of break them in. After that, if your nose still hurts and is swollen, chances are the frames fit too snugly on your nose and you need to have them re-fitted!
When I first got my glasses this summer, my nose was a little sore for about a week, but after that it felt fine!
It sounds really painful. :(
Hope it gets better!
If the lenses are really thick and heavy, there may not be much you can do, IF the nose pad is fitted properly. If it is not well-fitted to your nose, go back and get them to check the fit.
well if its hurting that bad then the glasses probably dont fit properly. go to where you got them and get the glasses adjusted
It sounds like they need to be adjusted. Most places will do this for free. So either go back to the place you bought them and ask them to fix them or - I know from personal experience - that Pearle Vision stores will do this for free on a walk-in basis. They are found in most malls. Your glasses shouldn't hurt - they need to be comfortable or else you won't want to wear them.
As an eyewear blogger (yes, there is such a thing), know that there are three possibilities as to why your glasses are uncomfortable:
(1) The nose pads need to be adjusted. Essentially the eyewear technician will probably push the nosepads towards the lenses so that the space between the nosepads is increased, thereby putting less pressure on your nose. This is the most likely cause of your trouble. This adjustment should be free at most locations (target does adjustments for free), whether or not you bought your eyeglasses at that location.
(2) The frames aren't appropriate for your PD (pupillary distance--the distance between your eyes). It is possible that you were sold a pair of frames made for people with closer-set eyes than you have. This is pretty unlikely.
(3) As the previous poster suggested, the frames might just be too heavy. I have a pair of steel-framed sunglasses and they become very uncomfortable after about 3 hours of wear. This is simply because they are steel and they are heavy. I really recommend buying a pair of titanium eyeglasses if this is not what you have already. They can be found online for less than $80.
I recently blogged about titanium frames at my site:
