The frame of my eyeglasses melted a bit due to slight

Customer Question
Hi, the frame of...

Hi, the frame of my eyeglasses melted a bit due to slight contact with a low flame. the damage is evident, but not massive enough to have broken the frames in any way. are these glasses still safe to wear?

Doctor's Assistant: Have you experienced any changes or blurriness in your vision? Eye pain? Are your eyes dry or bloodshot?

Would those be possible symptoms of the glasses having melted?

I’ve attached two photos of the damage I just wanted to make very sure thag wearing these glasses would not be harmful in any way—to my eyesight, skin or hair (where the glasses touch).
