I only wear eyeglasses for reading. About six months ago I noticed that it was very uncomfortable to wear any reading glasses. The area around my eyes and nose gets a cold, numb sensation and feels uncomfortable. The longer I wear the glasses, the longer the sensations lasts after I take the glasses off. I tried contacts and I do not get the sensation, but could not adjust to monovision or the loss of distant vision. Saw a neurologist who did a 20 minute basic neuro exam and said I was fine and it should go way. It is very disconcerting. I have started using audio books when I want to read a novel for pleasure. Help!

Did you ever receive answers for this?  I have a hard time wearing my glasses because they cause a burning sensation across the bridge of my nose that ends up making it's way down my entire nose. I can't figure out what is causing it.

Oh I so wish someone would have an answer for this because I too have been experiencing this for 8 months now. If anyone knows if gremlin or the previous guest were able to receive a diagnosis please post or if you just have insight concerning it please HELP.

I have had the same problem too and it was really starting to impact my ability to work. I found this support for glasses that has helped. I would not wear it out of the house for obvious reasons, but to get some relief at least at home has been great!

I also suffer with this ... wearing glasses for just 5mins will make the left arm on my body go numb and I also feel really giddy with pins and needles in my face. Its awful and makes me feel rubbish for the rest of the day. I asked my doctor and optician about it and they look at me like I am mad. I am long sighted and had my eyes laser''d about 8yrs ago which was amazing and was told because of my prescription it would'nt last . So now my vision is not as good again and I am very frustrated Its unbearable to wear glasses. Would love to hear from any of you if find any more info on this matter?

Are the glasses heavy? Heavy frames/glasses can pinch nerves and cause numbing, tingling, etc.
