How do I get rid of the pain on my nose from getting hit while wearing glasses?

How do I get rid of the pain on my nose from getting hit while wearing glasses?

Patience: You probably have a bruise on the bridge of the nose. Assuming that the vision is fine, there are no cuts or anything which might endanger the eye, and the nose is not fractured, then you just have to wait it out. Ice for a couple of days and then it will get better. A modest pain reliever might help like tylenol (acetaminophen) (not Aspirin as it can stimulate bleeding.). ...Read more

I have dark marks on my face that I just can't get rid of. They are mostly near both sides of my nose due to wearing glasses. What can I do?

Ecchymosis: If the marks are in fact due to constant pressure from the glasses, you will need to consider changing your glasses, using contacts or giving your skin as much rest as possible and changing the rest position of the glasses often. You can also try applying Arnica lotion you can get from health store (GNC, Whole foods, etc.) since it may be due to ecchymosis rather than PIH. ...Read more

Wearing glasses: Don't worry. Although the pads of the glasses that push on the nose may make small skin indentations throughout the day, the weight of most glasses isn't enough to change the shape of the bone underneath, even if worn constantly. If you need glasses, wear them. Don't skip wearing sunglasses for sure! good UV sunglasses can help prevent development of cataracts later in life. ...Read more

Swimmy/dizzy head for few years, sept. started wearing glasses, eyes have gotten worse along with dizziness. Can my eyes be causing my dizziness?

Dizzy eyes?: There is a small possibility that your current glasses may need adjustment. However, in my experience eye symptoms are secondary to the dizziness and not a cause of dizziness. I would get your glasses checked. If there is no significant change in the prescription and your ocular motility is normal- I would seek a neuro-otologist for evaluation. ...Read more
