glasses slip

I've had eyeglasses, which I almost never wear, for years. About a year ago, I thought I should have my eyes checked out, and the prescription increased slightly, and I got a new pair. I have mostly worn them when driving, though not always even then, unless I'm going to need to read unfamiliar street signs. But recently, I've been finding them helpful more often than not, so I've started wearing them about half the time, give or take.

And there's a problem: they slip down! Does this mean they're sized wrong, or that my nose is the wrong shape and I just have to deal with it, or maybe it's just a feature of glasses? There is a place on my nose they can sit for a long time, but then I feel like a stern librarian, which is only the desired effect some of the time.
