My reading glasses pinch my nose and ears, but they’re expensive prescription reading glasses, so what can I do short of buying a new pair?

The Glasses Don't Fit

Whether you bought your prescription reading glasses online or from your optometrist, you don't have to suffer with a pair that hurts you. There's a simple solution: get a new frame for your reading eye glasses. You can try out different frames in the store or at the optometrist and order a different frame there so that the technicians can refit your glasses. You're not out of luck if you bought reading glasses online. Just order new frames and take them to an eyeglass repair shop.

Be prepared to ditch those miracle eyeglasses for reading. Compact reading glasses look sleek and minimalist, but they may now be the best fit.
