Glasses Keep Sliding Down Nose

Glasses Keep Sliding Down Nose 1

Here are some tips for keeping your glasses from slipping

It may be necessary to adjust your glasses so they don’t slip anymore if you frequently push them back up on your face. If you are in a hurry, you can use a variety of quick fixes at home to keep your glasses in place. If you wish to obtain a more permanent solution, you may need to adjust your frames so they fit properly on your head. Once your frames have been adjusted, your glasses will remain in place throughout the day.

1st Method

Here are some quick fixes

  1. Remove natural oil buildup by washing your face. Oily skin can result in your glasses falling down your nose. If you have oily skin, look for a natural skincare product that removes oils, and make sure that you wash your face at least once or twice each day. Make sure that the cleanser is rubbed into your skin and rinsed completely before you put on your glasses to determine whether they slip.

    • As your body produces more oil throughout the day, keep cleaning wipes on hand to assist with the removal of any excess oil.

    • It is possible to dry out your skin if you use a facial cleanser frequently to remove oil from your face.

  2. Increasing the grip strength of your arms requires wrapping hair ties around them. Select two small hair ties that are similar to the color of your frames. Slide one hair tie along the arm about a third of the way down and twist it to form a loop. The hair tie should be wrapped around the arm until it becomes tight, and then the other arm should be looped in the same manner.

    • It is important to ensure that the hair ties are flat against the arms when you are wearing them so that they are not uncomfortable.

    • If you are wearing hair ties for the first time, you may wish to try different thicknesses of hair ties in order to determine which one feels the most comfortable on your arms.

  3. In order to prevent slippage of your glasses, apply wax to the bridge. Glasses wax comes in a lip balm-like tube and is designed to provide friction between your frames and your nose. Rub a little wax around the bridge of your frames after removing the cap. If you still find that your glasses are sliding around, apply a little more wax.

    • Glasses wax can be purchased online or at local pharmacies.

    Glasses wax will not work properly if your glasses do not fit properly on your head. Have your glasses measured by an eyeglass store or optometrist.

  4. The arms can be made more snug by putting heat-shrink tubing on them. After heating, heat-shrink tubing conforms to the shape of the item it is placed on. Slide the tubing over the arms of your glasses to cover the part that wraps around your ears. Heat the tubing on low for 30 seconds by holding it at a distance of about 4–5 inches (10–13 cm).

    • A hardware store can supply heat-shrink tubing. Select tubing that matches your frames’ color so it does not stand out too much.

    • A blow dryer set to the highest heat setting can also be used in the absence of a heat gun.

    • Keep the heat gun away from your glasses for a short period of time to avoid damaging or melting them.

    • On the arms of some frames, rubber strips may provide a sense of security.

2nd method

Frame adjustment

  1. If your glasses slide down your nose, replace the nose pads. Remove the old nose pad by using a small screwdriver from your glasses repair kit. Replace the old nose pad with a new one, and secure the screw again before replacing the second nose pad. Use a small screwdriver to loosen the screw on the nose pad to remove it.

    • Online or in stores that sell glasses, you can purchase replacement nose pads.

    • The nose pads on your glasses may be replaced by your optometrist for a small fee.

    The adhesive-backed pads can be applied to the bridge of your eyeglass frame if your frame lacks nose pads.

  2. It is important to narrow down your nose pads if they are adjustable on your frames. Certain frames feature nose pads that are attached to a thin metal piece, which allows you to adjust them yourself. Use your index finger and thumb to gently squeeze the outer edge of the nose pads. In order to ensure the glasses do not appear crooked on your face, you must ensure that the nose pads move the same distance.

    • To widen the space between the nose pads, push them out again if they become too narrow.

    • You should avoid bending the nose pads excessively as this could result in them falling off of your frames.

    • If you do not feel comfortable adjusting your frames yourself, you may take them to your optometrist or an eyeglass store.

  3. The temple angles are the angles at which the arms fit against your head in order to provide the best grip for your glasses. Adjust the temple angles so your glasses hold tightly against your head. A needlenose plier can be used to tighten the arms in metal frames by holding the base with your non-dominant hand and using a needlenose plier to grasp the end of the arm. Using a hair dryer on high for one to two minutes, heat plastic frames before hand bending them.

    • Alternatively, you can have your optometrist adjust your frames.

  4. You can prevent your glasses from falling off your ears by using ear hooks on your arms. Ear hooks are small rubber pieces that are mounted on your arms. When you wear glasses, slide an ear hook onto the end of the arm and position it far enough up so that it is close to your ear. Put the other hook on the other arm to ensure that the glasses remain straight.

    • Ear hooks can be purchased online or from a store that sells glasses.

3rd Method

Choosing a frame

  1. The length of the lenses, nose bridge, and arms for your glasses in millimeters can be determined accurately by an optometrist or employee in a glass store.

    • You may wish to measure your eyeglasses according to the following specifications: 55-18-140, where 55 mm is the width of the lens, 18 mm is the width of the bridge, and 140 mm is the length of each arm of the eyeglass.

    • In order to determine the size of a pair of glasses you already own that fit well, look on the arm of the glasses for three numbers.

    • A measurement tool may be available in some apps for buying glasses that uses the camera on your phone to estimate your perfect fit.

    Consider avoiding “one size fits all” frames as they may be too large or small for your face and slip more frequently.

  2. Grips strips are rubber pieces that are wrapped around the frames that increase friction, so they are less likely to slip. Choose glasses with grip strips on the arms so that they are less likely to slip. You should try on frames in your size that have rubber pieces on their end to determine how comfortable they are on your head.

    • The longer you wear your frames, the more uncomfortable they may become.

    • If you cannot find frames that already have grip strips, you can purchase grip strips.

  3. Make sure the nose pads are adjustable so you are able to adjust them as needed. Many glasses come with adjustable nose pads that are attached to moveable metal pieces that can be adjusted at any time. Your local glasses store or online should have frames with adjustable nose pads in your size. You can squeeze the nose pads closer together if they are too loose and are not gripping your nose bridge well.
