Reading is one of the most common ways that patients pass the time while recovering from surgeries. However, for patients with glasses, this can be particularly painful after common facial operations like a sinus surgery, rhinoplasty, septoplasty, or nasal reconstruction. It can also be very dangerous as glasses can delay and even negatively affect the healing process following surgery. Nasal bones are soft and remain flexible for about a month. While surgical recovery times can last weeks, swelling may persist for up to six months. Fortunately, there is a simple solution for wearing glasses while recovering from facial surgery that promotes healthy healing.
 A simple invention called a Pro-Nose Guard (available at ProNoseGuard.com for just $10.99) eliminates the pressure from glasses. The ingenious device comfortably suspends glasses off the nose. This on-size-fits-all is a must-have recovery tool for everyone recovering from sinus or rhinoplasty surgery. The adjustable headband ensures a comfortable, customized fit.
 In addition to bookworms, the Pro-Nose Guard is even more important for motorists who need to need to drive during recovery.  Both traditional and "Macgyvered" alternatives, like taping glasses to the forehead, are unsafe and painful (and also silly looking). It is much safer and easier to use this simple device. Similarly, this tool is great for outdoor enthusiasts as it also works for sunglasses. If you’re scheduled for sinus surgery or know someone who is planning a rhinoplasty, this optic tool is a necessary and affordable accessory that is highly recommended by former patients and surgeons.
