Can Wearing Eye Glasses for Long Periods of Time Cause Bumps or Dents on the Nose?

I have been wearing my specs since I was 9 years old (I am now 21) I was wondering if this is a contribution to the little bump on my nose..
Rhinoplasty to treat bump on nose
While it is possible that your skin may become thinner over the bridge of your nose in the area where your eyeglasses sit, if you can feel that the bump is bony and not soft tissue, it has likely been there since birth. If it bothers you, I would suggest you see a rhinoplasty surgeon to determine whether surgery would be the best option. Sometimes, injecting fillers above or below a nasal bump can be a simple non-surgical solution but a surgeon would really need to examine the area directly.
Nose bumps/dents from eyeglasses
They usually do not leave permanent marks or bumps on your nose...alas, I think that the bump is there from the way you grew, or likely from some distant trauma. After rhinoplasty, glasses can leave little dents as the swelling comes down, but these are not permanent either.
