This is a question about frames rather than lenses, so I hope it's OT.\n\nI'm having trouble adjusting to a new pair of glasses because they sit\ntoo high up my face so the bottom of my field of vision is too\nrestricted. The standard 18mm bridge is a little too narrow for my nose\nreally, but another factor is that the nose pads are positioned low\nrelative to the lenses. I asked my optician if that could be changed by\nrepositioning the curve in the nose-piece stalks (ie like changing an\ninverted U into an inverted J). I'm not sure if she understood, because\nfirst she tried to widen the angle of the existing curve. Then I drew a\ndiagram and she still seemed a bit vague about what I wanted, but she\njust said it would be impossible.\n\nDoes that sound reasonable? I would have thought this could be done\nwithout stressing the metal so much it would break, but I'm not 100%\nsure, and I don't think I've got adequate tools to do a good job of it\nmyself if it is possible. Have any opticians/technicians here ever\nperformed that sort of adjustment?
