In the weeks after rhinoplasty, septoplasty, nose injury, or other facial plastic surgery, doctors advise their patients to avoid wearing their glasses for at least two months. The idea of wearing glasses can be painful or simply impossible to fit well. This is why a product like RhinoShield® is so important.
Our innovative product protects the soft cartilage from creating permanent indentations to the bridge of the nose. RhinoShield® distributes the weight of a patient’s glasses, making them feel weightless.
RhinoShield®—the only product of its kind— is committed to making people feel comfortable with wearing glasses after rhinoplasty or facial surgery. We are proud to debut a versatile product that is suitable for all aspects of post surgical healing.

A Story Worth Telling
The catalyst behind creating Rhinoshield was having my rhinoplasty (and subsequent revisions). These surgical experiences lead directly to the development of RhinoShield®.
Following my surgery, I was sitting in the waiting room of a renowned plastic surgeon. A patient called the office to ask the receptionist how to handle the need for wearing eyeglasses after surgery. I heard her tell the patient to tape glasses to her forehead. This seemed like an inconvenient suggestion, especially when I considered how many times I take my glasses on and off throughout the day.
Because I have always been innovative, I began to imagine better, more convenient solutions. If the best plastic surgeon suggested this strategy, I was certain that nothing better was on the market.
After considerable trial and error, I identified the perfect raw material and design to solve the problem. If you’re a mother, you can identify with giving birth to your first child. The development of RhinoShield® was this type of birth and something that I am passionate about making available to you. This exceptional US-made product is now available to the general public. You can order online or request them from your surgeon.
