It is bad enough that you are not blessed with a 6/6 vision. The fact that we need to struggle with uncomfortable glasses day in and out made life even harder for myopic us.

From the pain behind the ears to the glasses slipping off my nose bridge, there seem to be 101 problems associated with wearing glasses. Don't believe the optometrist if he tells you that you will get used to it when you complain about the discomfort with his prescription, chances are, you will never. With years of experience under my belt, here are some of the solutions I have to lessen the discomfort when we are wearing glasses.
1. Get anti-slip hooks
You bend over to tie your shoelaces and your glasses starts sliding down to the tip of your nose. Familiar?
If your glasses are always sliding down, you can get some anti-slip hooks as a temporary measure to prevent that from happening. Most anti-slip hooks are cheap and easy to use.
2. Use a hairdryer

If anti-slip hooks are not your thing, you can try adjusting the section of the arm piece that sits right behind your ear. Use a hair dryer to warm and soften the plastic to make it easier to bend. Things are easier if you are wearing wire-framed glasses as they are easier to bend.
3. Adjust the nose pads
Nose pads that are set at a wrong angle can cause pinching at the nose bridge and cause a lot of discomfort. Adjust the nose pads by spreading them out and allowing them to sit comfortably on your nose bridge.
4. Get a new frame

Tried everything but nothing is working out for you? I guess it's time to replace your uncomfortable glasses with a pair of comfortable ones. Keep in mind that you should opt for a pair that is lightweight with a great fit for your face. A pair of glasses that is too heavy or too tight can give you a headache and cause a lot of discomforts. Make sure that the nose pads and arm pieces also fit you well before making a purchase.
