New glasses, annoying pressure in nose

Discussion in 'Glasses' started by Jose Fernandez, Dec 19, 2003.

  1. I've been getting really bad headaches from using the PC and watching
    TV. After they were gone I felt a smell pressure in my forehead and
    my eyes hurted a bit. I went to the doctor and he prescribed me 0.75
    and 0.5 glasses. I got a new frame and now I can see a lot better
    from a distance and enjoy movies (before they were a little blurry to
    me). The doctor also recommended me to use the glasses when using my
    PC, he told me to get this special filter for Monitors. So basically
    use these glasses for reading, using the pc, watching tv and movies.

    Well my problem is that when I wear the glasses, the nose piece
    creates an annoying pressure in my nose when it makes contact with it.
    Its not even tight it just annoys me when it touches my nose. When
    I'm wearing them to watch TV or a movie, the pressure in my nose is so
    annoying that I cant even concentrate. What I do is manually lift my
    glasses a bit so that the nose piece isnt touching my nose and that
    way it feels fine, but this is a pain to do all the time... Is this
    normal when you get new glasses? If not what should I do?

    What do you mean by 'filter for Monitors'? I didn't know such a thing
    It's probably not normal, given the popularity of wire frames with those
    nasty little rotating nosepieces that hurt AND close off my
    overly-narrow nasal passages, but I can sympathize. My solution is to
    get plastic frames that rest on the bridge of my nose and use the
    earpiece length to keep them positioned. I don't like having anything
    on the sides of my nose either.

    Good luck!

    Go back to the people who sold you the glasses and tell them your problem.
    They might be able to adjust the frames.

    Next time, you need to take the frame style into consideration and how it
    fits on your nose.
