im also experiencing this kind of discomfort
on my left eye for my last few pair of specs
including my current pair.
i really dunno what/where’s the problem.
Initially i thought it was because i changed to those plastic frame which is nearer to my face compared to those metal frame with extra nose support that stretch the specs further out,
but i drop the plastic frame and went back to metal frame & another frame w extra nose support, yet the discomfort is still there,
just sometimes mild, sometimes more serious.
i really dunno why....
sigh.
Went to the optical shop today and sought for opinions. The optician heat treated the nose bridge and adjusted the frame inwards to slightly curve the lens. She said my previous specs was very curvy so maybe that's the cause. But i forgot to tell her i wore those flat lenses in between before and no such problem.

After curving the frame i felt comfy for awhile but over the hours the frame went back to the original shape. So i'm thinking maybe it's fitting problem.

My opinion is, i think those extra supports you have might contribute to the hotspots ah. Try talking to your optician to see if they are willing to reshape your frames slightly.

If spectacles keep slipping downwards when wearing after sometime, what to adjust?

Wearing thin metal frame that has plastic nosepads

Probably the frame does not fit your face.

If you're Asian, probably better off sticking to Asian brands which specialise in optical rather than fashion brands.

Crizal basic is enough. no need what crizal advance. Below 300 degrees cheapest version of any brand is enough.

Choose Hoya I find it better because not so easily scratched.

Oakley owners, say after 1 month if I find my frame not suited (causing discomfort) after changing to regular fit nosepad, can I request for the service center staffs to change my model of the same RP?

I got a problem here,

Shop A gave me this prescription: Right - SP: -3.25, CY: -200, AX: 160deg / Left - all same except AX: 54deg

Shop B gave Right - SP: -3.25, CY: -2.50, AX: 170deg / Left - all same except AX: 180deg

What dafark is this? My current spec is given by Shop A and been having issues even after changing the nosepad to regular fit. How sia?

Need to clarify, my prev specs has a base curve of 6 and my current one has a base curve of 4. I was told by an optician that for base 6 curve lenses, the astig is "not the same"? Is it possible? It's a crizal lense btw.

Problem is i just changed new specs with more/less the same prescription but with different frame. When i wear the new one i keep getting forehead/eyebrow strain. Now switch to my old ones also abit uncomfy maybe because the frame is slightly distorted.

What can be the potential issue here?
