    The pain may caused by the too tight frame of your glasses. When your glasses were so tight, it will leads to poor circulation, then the pain shows up. You need to go straight to the store which you buy the glasses, then ask them to modify the frame for you, I mean, to make it looser. And in order to release the pain you have already got, you need to avoid wearing that unsuitable glasses then slightly rub your back-ears skin.

    Really? Wow, your problem is quite rare to be honest. So, I wonder if the type of glasses you wear is too tight for your head size, because that could lead to some painful feelings. Generally speaking, wearing glasses would not cause earaches, so maybe you should try to change a pair and see if the situation gets better and make some decisions afterwards ok? Hope you find this useful.

    This pain might be a result of the pressure points. I don't know how old you are, but the older we get, more chances are to develop pressure points. This has nothing to do with the frame being tight but everything to do with the age-related changes of your body. See if you can either use a piece of soft cloth between the eyeglass frame and your ears or else use contact lenses. Good luck

    I have such problems, too. It is the nerves pressure from the heavy eyeglasses that causes the pain behind the ears. You could choose to change another type of eyeglasses with light weight. Or you could wear the contact lenses to help you have the right vision which will be convenient and makes you look more beautiful.

    This might have nothing to do with the lenses themselves but with the frames. Perhaps they do not fit your head shape properly and are putting pressure behind your ear. Do you feel any discomfort when you wear them? Any tightness or pushing
    If so, take your glasses to an optician to adjust the frames. I had this problem a couple of months ago and had to get my frames exchanged because they were causing bruising on the bone behind my ear.

    If not, you may have the wrong prescription and continued strain in the eye may result in various forms of physical pain, however it's unusual that you report this pain behind ears and. I suggest seeing an optometrist and getting your eye pressure checked and perhaps a new prescription.

    I have the same issue I think it’s the metal being use in the frame. But I am not 100% sure.
