Using lenses can free you from all the concerns and hassles of when to wear glasses or else.
You should wait for at least one day after the surgery in order to insert contact lenses in your eyes. For those who experience too much swelling around the eyes, lenses may feel uncomfortable. If so, try to avoid them for a while and then use them or go for another option.
If you’re not comfortable with lenses or you have an allergy to such lenses, you can wear post-rhinoplasty glasses instead. These eyeglasses are ultra-light and do not rest on the nasal bridge. So, there would be no risk of affecting the nose recovery.
There are a lot of glass supports available in the market, helping people get through the recovery period with ease. These devices are glass-holders which you can wear in order to provide a support for your eyeglass to rest on.
Glass support is simply an adjustable strap fitting around the head and a base attached to it. The bridge of your eyewear rests on the base, so that no contact is made between the glass and nose and no weight is put on the nose. Accordingly, patients are able to use their eyeglasses while driving or doing their daily activities.
Taping glasses to the forehead
The fourth option you may take into account is taping your glasses to your forehead. This will secure the glasses and prevent the nose from deformation.
Getting LASIK surgery prior to your nose job
For patients who are considering to do LASIK surgery as well as rhinoplasty, it is best to get their eye correction surgery 3 months before the nose job. This way, no concern would remain regarding the vision problems after surgery. Moreover, we recommend you to consult with your doctor and get his/her approval to undergo a nose operation after LASIK.
