Many people who wear eyeglasses complain that the nose pads leave marks on the skin. If you are battling this problem, the first thing that you must do is get the optometrist to size the glasses and adjust the nose pads depending on the shape of your face. In addition, here are a few steps to get rid of the marks.

Proper measurements

The width, the temple length, and the nose bridge determine the size of a glass. Your glasses should conform to these measurements.

Nose pad adjustment

To ensure that the glasses sit properly on your nose, you may have to fine-tune the nose pads. Hold each pad individually and bend it gently so that it sits better on your nose. If you are worried about breaking the eyeglass, get it done by the optometrist.

Clean face and glasses regularly

Oil, makeup, and dust can accumulate in your glasses and cause irritation. Clean your face and your glasses regularly to remove them. If you are sweating, remove the glasses if you can, as it can intensify the red marks.

Rotate glasses

Alternate an eyeglass that rests on your face, with another that has nose pads. This will allow the skin to dry.

Use moisturizer

If you have dry skin, your chances of developing red marks will increase. In this case, you can use a moisturizer. You can also use a toner to shrink pores, which will again reduce the marks.

As a last resort, you can switch to contact lenses, if the marks persist.
