    should the glasses rest on the nose bridge or just the nose pads. i
    can't get my glasses not to slip down my nose, and i don't know what
    i'm doing wrong.
    thank you

  2. you are not doing anything "wrong", other than failing to find a
    competent optician. A well-fit and well-adjusted frame uses three
    locations to carry the weight of the frame. The frame should hug your
    skull bones without touching the back of your ear (on both sides) and
    then the remaining weight is on your nose. You need a competent
    optician, bacause the good ones really balance the frame on your face

    I am a competent optician, but whoever adjusted your eyeglasses needs
    more instruction. The eyeglasses should rest on the nosepads( at the
    front of the head). A way to think of it is that your nosepads will
    hold the frame up, and not on. A frame should not fit like a vice.
    Patients do have different preferences when it comes to placement of
    the frame, but comfort in a well fitted frame is important for all
