Recently started wearing eye glasses, and whenever I kiss my partner, his nose smudges my glasses. How can I avoid this?
I've worn contact lenses for 10+ years because I couldn't find any styles that suited me, even though buying contacts gets expensive and is rather high maintenance. Recently found some frames I like and got a deal online, and I love my new glasses! They look great and take no effort, and being able to take them off whenever I'd like to read is much less stress on my eyes. They are quite ideal in this sense.
Unfortunately when my partner kisses me, an oily smear from his nose is left on my glasses. This makes the lenses unclear, as well as creating a strange glare. This makes it rather uncomfortable to use my glasses until I can clean them with spray and cloth. Since my partner and I are affectionate, this can mean I clean my glasses anywhere from a couple times a day to >10 times a day. This annoys me. It is problematic because the lens width and height are much larger than average; they cover more area, making it harder to avoid nose/glasses collisions.
We have tried implementing a diagonal tilt rule when we go to kiss to avoid this, but that only happens when we remember, and rather dampens some of our spontaneity. This is the first time in my life I have worn glasses on a regular basis, so I have never had to deal with this. I have spent a couple days away from my partner since getting the glasses, and they have stayed clean all day. I am good at keeping them clean when left to my own devices, but need help avoiding residue from others.
Glasses wearers, how do you keep your glasses clean? I have read questions previously about cleaning lenses
and keeping glasses dust free
, but that is not what I am really concerned with. How do you avoid getting your glasses smudged/oily from your partner? What tips or strategies do you have to deal with this? Ideally, I want to continue wearing my eye glasses regularly, I do not want them to be smudged all the time, and I want to kiss my partner without worry. Thanks, hive mind!
