Yes I saw others have had this problem and it seems like taking the glasses to an optician for adjustment is the best option. Well I learned a lesson, saved money and purchased online, so I don't have an optician to go to (prescription from an Opthamologist). I tried the hot water and bending option but it didn't work and I couldn't get them to bend to fit my ear better. I don't want an ugly attachment, so not sure what to do. Do I go to an optician and ask if I can pay for them to adjust, will they do that?
Depending on country, specific optician's office etc, things may differ, of course. However, considering the ease of adjustment, they are quite likely to do it for free, especially if they do not happen to be very busy.
I know this because my mother had this experience several times - she has severe myopia, which progressed over time. She was nicely surprised every time, that she got the service for free.
As someone how's had glasses since the 6th grade, I know the problem well. I now have straight ear pieces and it's even worse. I've just lived with it, but I shouldn't.
- Hair bands / hair ties
- Oil free moisturizer
- Adjust temples with Polyolefin (shrink warp)
- Bend the temples to fit
You can also try a sports band for glasses, as I did during Army Basic and AIT. They can be ugly, wear out, and need washing, but they work.
