Are there silicone nose pads that don't fall off plastic frames every two weeks?

I recently got a pair of plastic eyeglasses frames which have a tendency to slip down my nose. The optometrist gave me a pair of silicone nose pads which work amazingly well! With them on, these frames become the best I've ever had. Unfortunately, after about 2 weeks, the adhesive wears off and the pads come off the frame. Is there an alternative I can use? I think the stuff my optometrist gives me are the same as these
Can anyone recommend something better or a better adhesive I can use? I've seen suggestions for adhesives that bond silicone to plastic, but since these sit about an inch away from my eyes, I want to make sure I'm not using something toxic.
