How do I get used to these new glasses?

Slightly different from the normal question - I'm well familiar with the process/length of time for adjusting to the new prescription, but now I'm having problems with the frame type.
I've been wearing glasses for nearly 20 years now, but in all this time, I've only had the frame type with nose pads.
I just got these frames
from my home-town eye doctor. We only did some minor adjustments while I was there as I don't live there any more - they mailed the glasses to me when they were finished and still need some adjusting for a good fit.
I'm having some difficulty adjusting to the lack of nose pads and find myself continually pushing the glasses back up a bit on my nose - will a proper fitting and getting the ear pieces to curve more around the back (which I intend to get done this week) keep the glasses at the top of my nose where I want them or is this sort of frame just doomed to slide down down down the nose?
Important to note that by, "down down down", I mean a millimeter or three down to the top of that bump on the nose instead of tucked nicely into the dent between nose and forehead).
