Those who wear eyeglasses and sunglasses frequently may notice that their glasses sit too high. If this happens to you, there are a few simple steps you can take to fix your glasses. To fix the problem, turn the glasses upside down and ensure that both temples touch the table. If they don’t, make an adjustment to the nose piece or adjust the temples. You can also bend the temples slightly outward or inward. Bending the temples outward will take pressure off the side of your head and tighten your glasses onto your head.

The nose pad is another important component of sunglasses that needs to be adjusted. The nose pad should be low enough to be barely noticeable when worn. If it digs into your nose, you may have a wide nose pad. If this is the case, you can try pulling the nose pad inward with your fingers or pulling it outwards with a screwdriver. If you cannot find a pair of sunglasses with adjustable nose pads, you can also purchase them separately.

If your glasses still sit too high, you can adjust the nose pad to make it sit low. For plastic frames, you cannot adjust the nose pad on one side. Instead, you can glue or stretch the nose pad so that it fits properly over your nose. You can also adjust the nose pads of plastic glasses by pulling the nose piece inward. For glasses that slide down your nose, adjust the nose pad inwards, or push them outward to prevent them from pinching your nose.

In addition to the nose pad, you can adjust the temple arms of your glasses. If the arms are bent, it may be necessary to adjust them by running them under warm water. If they don’t fit properly, you may need to adjust the frame material to make it fit better. Adjust the temple arms to ensure that the frame sits comfortably on your face. This will also fix a problem that is causing headaches, but it is worth a try.

A crooked pair of glasses can be straightened by gently bending the temple arm and heating up the bridge piece. However, you shouldn’t heat the bridge piece too much, as it could damage the lens coating. Also, make sure that there’s enough space between the bridge of your nose and the bridge of your glasses. If you don’t have this space, you should try to bend the nose pad backwards.

To fix the problem of sunglasses sitting too high, first make sure that they fit properly. Sunglasses tend to be loose over time, so adjusting them can make them look crooked and can hurt behind the ears. Sometimes, they can even leave a mark on your face. But don’t fret, there are a few easy steps that you can perform at home and you can do this on any kind of glasses.
