Wearing Glasses After Rhinoplasty
Will i be able to wear my glasses after my rhinoplasty? I'm nearly blind without my glasses--will i be able to wear them after my rhinoplasty even though they rest on my nose?
In : In general, it is preferable to wait 1-2 weeks following rhinoplasty if the nasal bones have been fractured before wearing glasses in their normal position, particularly if they are heavy frames.If the glasses are leaving an indent in the skin or are uncomfortable to wear, you probably shouldn't be wearing them that early. Oftentimes the glasses will need to be readjusted with regard to the pad position if the nasal bones have been narrowed or the bones realigned in a different position. Practical options might be to wear the glasses lower on your nose, use of contacts if you have them, magnifying glass for close reading, etc. Typically, wearing glasses doesn't damage the rhinoplasty result but is often impractical in the usual position with a cast/splint on the first week. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Just had injectable rhinoplasty done 4 days ago. Can i wear my glasses or will that affect the nose job?
Don't Wear Them Yet: Most injectable materials that change the shape of the nose take at least a week to become totally fixed in position where they won't change when you wear your glasses. There are a few materials that may change even after that. The best thing to do is check with the surgeon who placed the material in your nose. He/she would know best in your particular case. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Yes, if you live.: While it may seem that glasses are causing your eyes to deterioriate, it is actually the wear and tear of aging that causes your eyes to lose their ability to see well up close. I sometimes say that it is a birthday present from mother nature and father time that should be accepted graciously, then attacked by glasses, contact lenses, refractive surgery or possibly lens replacement surgery. ...Read more

My vision is getting more blurred even though i'm wearing glasses, especially after this brain jolt i had a few weeks ago. I also have diabetes 2?
Should get eye exam: After blunt head trauma there may be a temporary blurring of vision, but the eyes should be checked to rule out any problem directly affecting the eyes, or related to complications from the diabetes. Also, sometimes the eye exam can reveal more serious problems that might be affecting the brain in general after trauma. It is preferable to have this exam by an ophthalmologist (medical issues). ...Read more

Is it safe to have lasik surgery after having had keratitis? I hate wearing glasses, so i've mostly been wearing contacts, but recently i got keratitis. My eye doctor says it's healed but wants me to wait before wearing contacts again. I'm kind of scared
There : There are several causes of keratitis. Depending on the cause, it may be safe to have lasik. If the keratitis was caused by herpes virus (not uncommon), then lasik may cause a recurrence of the keratitis that may be problematic. In this case, your surgeon may recommend either not having lasik or the use of medications before and after surgery to decrease the risk of recurrent keratitis. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
No: However if you get used to wearing glasses and see better with them, then you'll want to wear them all the time and thus without them your eyes will seem worse (like deterioration). Glasses only correct a refractive error, not change the eyesight. Eyesight changes with a lot of near work without breaks, or with age as the cornea/lens changes, etc. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not at all: This is an old wives' tale. Your eyes' prescription is a result of their shape and normal changes that occur over time. This built-in shape is not affected by outside sources (except for injury/infection). Glasses correct the prescription that the eye has; they do not alter the eye's shape. As your prescription naturally changes, you will need a stronger prescription, and not the other way around. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
