Why do eyeglasses leave marks?Properly fitting eyeglasses should not leave any marks on your face. If you are experiencing sore skin or marks when wearing glasses, check your glasses for the following situations-
Eyeglass being too heavy
Eyeglass nose pads don’t fit
Eyeglass material allergy
How do you prevent eyeglasses from hurting the skin of the nose?
1. Choose lightweight eyeglasses
When choosing a frame, choose titanium over other metals, and TR90 or Utem over acetate, which will be notably lighter than other frame materials.
When choosing your lens, choose a relatively higher refractive index, which can be up to 50% thinner and lighter for the same prescription.
2. Choose the right height for nose padsThe height of nose pads is one of the most important differences in the fit of frames. Most ‘standard fit’ frames are designed for Caucasian ethics, who often have high nose bridge and deep eye socket facial features. However, for Asians, wearing this ‘standard fit’ will lead to glasses constantly sliding down your nose, being tight around your head, with sore nose bridge and ears. For Asians, it is worth considering Asian Fit eyewear, which has elevated nose pads.
3. Choose an anti-allergic materialIn addition to considering the design of a frame, it is also worth choosing an anti-allergic material that is easy on your skin, such as titanium (pure and β) which is IP-plated. Even if you are not notably allergic to a certain type of material, it is also wise to avoid those metals that are prone to allergies on the skin, for example, Nikel, as the time of contact with your glasses frame can be up to 18 hours a day.
