Wearing Glasses After Septoplasty

Wearing Glasses After Septoplasty



Wearing glasses after septoplasty is often challenging and ill-advised. Post septoplasty, many surgeons recommend not wearing eyeglasses for at least 4 to 8 weeks. If you need to wear your glasses, your surgeon should provide you with instructions for taping your eyeglasses to your forehead. But why tape your glasses to your forehead? To keep the weight and pressure from your glasses off of your nose, so you can properly recover.
For many people, especially those with oily complexions, simply taping their glasses to their forehead isn’t as easy as it sounds. The skin’s natural oil makes it difficult to stick, let alone tape, anything to your body. In addition, tape can cause skin irritation, such as rashes and inflammation. This makes wearing glasses after septoplasty a frustrating experience.

Why Shouldn’t I Wear Eyeglasses Post Septoplasty?
Glasses cause indentations and deviations in your nasal bones, and when you wear them after nasal surgery, you may risk undergoing another surgery. This is why surgeons recommend taping your glasses to your forehead. Some surgeons will even recommend avoiding your glasses altogether—but that isn’t the easiest thing to do, especially when you need them to see.
