Question glasses hurt ear

I just got new glasses and for the past week the back of my ear where my frame rests really hurts. It throbs and feels really sore. Is this from the pressure of the frame and can they be fixed? Does this happen to anyone else?

Re: glasses hurt ear

Yeah, I had the same problem with mine. At first I thought the frame was to tight but after a while it stopped hurting. Maybe you just need time to get used to it? It is tender behind your ear or it could very well be that the frame is too tight. You can go back to the eye doctor or where you got the glasses and ask them to adjust them for you.

Re: glasses hurt ear

You should go back to where you got the glasses and ask them to adjust your ear piece. It can really irritate the back of your ear if it is bent incorrectly. You could try to fix it yourself by just bending the piece that rests on your ear so that it is not touching your earlobe directly. It should be bent toward the side of your head, not the back of your earlobe.
