How can I stop my glasses from slipping down my nose?

  • I am currently using these glasses:

    enter image description here

    They slip a bit down my nose when I move suddenly or when I look at the ground. I have to re-adjust them and that's a bit inconvenient.

    Is there anything I can do to prevent them from slipping down my nose?

    P.S. I am aware of this question but my glasses have fixed nosepieces and that's why I'm asking this as a separate question.

    Cleaning your face, and also cleaning your glasses to remove any sweat and grease will really help.

    If your glasses are slipping, they're probably not adjusted properly. Take them to an optician and they'll fix them for you (in this case probably tightening the arms).

    And Steve Martin's character invented a solution for this in the movie "The Jerk". https://youtu.be/i5jTH89HjTA?t=1m22s

    Choose frames that fit you when buying, not just ones that you like. Also look for plastic lenses with a higher refractive index instead of glass lenses for the weight saving. Thinner temples helps too - they don't need to be as thick and wide as fashion implies.

    If you used an optometrist for this, go back to them and explain your problem. They have a process to adjust the earpieces so they snugly fit your head and ears. It appears this was not performed, or not completed correctly, so go back and have them re-fitted. I'd submit this as an answer, but apparently around here doing things the right way isn't considered a life hack.

    Didn't want to post an answer although it technically solved the problem. In the most hackey way. https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=james+sooy&;espv=2&biw=1440&bih=698&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwi2j8iKreDJAhXCWRoKHeaKAxkQ_AUIBygB This guy put a barbell through his nose and attaches his glasses to it.

  • Here some options that don't involve vandalizing your face.

    1. Ponytail holders

    2. Ear Hook

    3. Nerd Wax

    They're doing it wrong in that nerdwax picture. They said you are supposed to use the side of the cylinder of wax.

    I also bought some awesome silicon nose pads that adhere to the frame. Barely noticeable and seem to hold up well.
