Does anyone else have this problem with glasses or sunglasses, or is it just me?Having done a couple of long runs, I am finding that my glasses wobble and slip, they end up rubbing on my nose, I get sore underneath them and sometimes spots too where they rub on nose/above eyes. I also seem to spend half my life straightening them up
Did consider some vaseline or something to stop the rubbing - but then they would probably slip about more! Have tried bending the arms to try and fit better, but it doesnt seem to help
Am I just odd?!
Interesting, i'm considering purchasing a pair of sunglasses for use when running.
Maybe i should just continue to squint, i mean it is britain the sun aint going to be out that much
Unfortunatly I cant see the road without glasses, of some sort!
Maybe the sports sunglasses are better at not slipping?
I have to say I've never had this problem, either with regular glasses or sunnies - other than just getting a bit sweaty around the old nose bridge.
Perhaps get a friendly local optician to check the fit of your specs? Otherwise, try a retainer band - never used one myself though, I have to say.
Maybe I should get brave enough to try contacts....
sounds like I need to find time to get to an optician and get them wiggled with properly - and if that doesnt help resort to getting a band (used to have one for watersports) or finding some sport specific glasses
I never knew such a thing existed!
I wear glasses and have never had a problem.
I would suggest your glasses don't fit correctly
Mine dont move but they steam up in the cold and i cant see when its raining
LOL I have that too Hipps!
They steam up when I get too hot too!
I have two different pairs of prescription glasses - the newer ones are a tighter fit and less prone to moving about. The older ones fit, they're just a different shape.
I often wear a Buff headband thingy and then wear my glasses as normal - the Buff keeps them in place.
Plodding Hippo- Me too!
Nothing like running blind in to a rain storm for adding a bit of danger I suppose...
Hippo and Carly - me three!!Can't wear contacts - eyes quite dry and I can't get the vision properly correct because (as an optician once described it) my "rugby balls are pointing in odd directions" (I have irregular astigmatism).
Solution: never run when it's raining! Sorted!
Me thinks there is a market for glasses with windscreen wipers....
wouldnt run with contacts, cant get the sodds OUT of my eyes and it muight scrrew up a run
I only experience problems on offroad descents.
