    It just depend on the type of rhinoplasty you have taken, thus when you can wear sunglasses after rhinoplasty varies. Some doctors will allow their patients to wear sunglasses 2 weekks after rhinoplasty. While some surgeons allow their patients to wear sunglasses 3 weeks after rhinoplasty. And some other surgeons ask their patients to wait for about 8-10 weeks following rhinoplasty and then they can wear sunglasses. Whenever you can, make sure the sunglasses are so leightweight that they can't cause pressure on your nose.

    It depends on if osteotomies were done. Some patients can wear light framed sunglasses for 2weeks. Still some people may wait for four or six weeks to wear sunglasses after rhinoplasty. Besides, even if you can wear sunglasses, you'd better choose light weight sunglasses to avoid direct pressure in the nose. What's more, you need pay more attention to your body. For example, if the sunglasses irritate your skin of nose, you'd better not wear it.

    You can't wear sunglasses immediately after rhinoplasty. Anything that puts pressure on the nose will cause damage. Wear glasses like these if you need to wear glasses https://www.doctorcoeyewear.com/shop
