Question : I am 35 and seeking a rhinoplasty to fix my crooked nose. I normally wear glasses, but how long after the surgery should I wait before wearing my glasses? Will it hurt my nose if I put them on too early?
Answer : I use a cast on the nose so the result will not be affected by lightly wearing glasses on the nose or the cast. If the patient really does not need their glasses, however, I tell them to keep their glasses off for one week until the cast is removed
