Sunglasses wearers sometimes experience itching or sore spots on the nose or cheeks. This means they have been affected by Contact Dermatitis, an allergic reaction to glasses. Here’s how to prevent allergic reactions to sunglasses.
Contact Dermatitis – If you are sensitive to common allergens such as nickel and palladium, consider changing to plastic frames or hypoallergenic metal frames.
Changing your sunglasses frames to hypoallergenic frames is often the only solution for allergic reactions affecting sunglasses wearers.
For a cheaper and easier way to get temporary relief, paint a thin coat of clear nail polish on the part of the frame that touches your skin – temples, arms or nose pads. This will provide a protective barrier and a temporary fix to your allergic reaction.
For a more permanent solution, it is highly recommended that you visit your eye doctor or optician.
