Wearing Glasses After Rhinoplasty

Whether you undergo rhinoplasty for cosmetic or medical purposes, wearing glasses after rhinoplasty can be challenging. Post nose surgery, surgeons recommend not wearing eyeglasses for 4 to 8 weeks. If you must wear glasses, your surgeon will provide instructions for taping your eyeglasses to your forehead. This keeps the weight, pressure, and indentations of eyewear from interfering with your nose’s recovery.

For many, however, there are a few issues that coincide with taping glasses to the skin. The first is the skin’s natural production of oils. As you might imagine, this makes it incredibly difficult for adhesive tape to stick to the skin, which in turn creates a frustrating situation. The second issue is that tape can irritate the skin and cause rashes and inflammation.

Why Can’t I Wear Glasses Post Nose Surgery?

Doctors do not want you to wear your glasses after surgery because they could damage your nose as it heals, causing indentions and deviations in your nasal bones. Wearing glasses normally could require you to have a revision nasal surgery performed.

Is There A Solution?
