Default Glasses And Sunglasses

Hi everyone, I'm 6 weeks post op now and I think it's about time to start wearing my glasses again or...? How long were you told to wait?

Many thanks in advance

Mary

My doctor told me to wait 10 weeks, I was told that if the glasses were heavy I should definitely wait until 10 weeks. But if they were light, I could wear them at 6 weeks. I decided to not take a chance, so today I'm just over four months post-op and I haven't worn any. If you've spent so much money on fixing your nose, why increase your risk of ruining it?

My advice is to wait!

I tried to wear my glasses after two months, but the glasses left deep indents on each side of my nose after a short time of wearing. So I decided to wait, but I also got a pair of lighter glasses, my old ones were much heavier and they had those little prongs with pads that sat on each side of my nose, that's why it left marks.

Hi,

If there is no bony work, glasses can be worn the next day. Otherwise, wait for four to six weeks after surgery. I think you should discuss this with your surgeon.

Hi everyone,

I had my surgery about four weeks ago and today I asked my doctor when I could start wearing my glasses again and he said I should wait a few more weeks.

Default 3 months

My surgeon told me to wait 6-7 weeks but I waited 3 months! Just to be on the safe side...
