Believe it or not, the little eyeglass nose pads on your frame play a crucial role in how comfortable they are. By securing and balancing the weight of your glasses squarely on your nose, they keep your glasses from slipping off or becoming crooked.
Glasses with nose pads can be tweaked to fit any face. Nose pads make any style frame a pair of adjustable eyeglasses.
In addition to eyeglass nose pieces, the nose bridge also adds comfort to your frame. A well-fitted nose bridge should leave barely any gap between your glasses and your nose to keep your frame stable and evenly distribute the weight of your eyewear. The nose bridge is also a great place for extra style features; keyhole nose bridges are especially trendy.
Temple Features for Your Eyewear
The temples are the arms of your eyewear that reach behind your ears and keep them stable. Along with the eyeglass nose pads, the temples should keep your frame balanced between your ears and your nose — well-fitted temples keep your eyeglass frame feeling light. The temple tips are often made with plastic or acetate for both style and comfort.
Hinge Studs and Other Accents
The hinges are where the temples connect to the frame front. Hinge studs are eye-catching features that help a frame stand out and draw attention to the best parts of your eyeglasses. Spring hinges add some flexibility to the hinges, improving comfort and helping with durability. Along with silicone nose pads, our quality hinges make any frame a joy to wear.
Customizing Your EyeBuyDirect Glasses
Entering Your Prescription
Quality eyeglass nose pads help your nose, while quality lenses keep your eyes safe and healthy. EyeBuyDirect lenses can help with tons of different visual needs. Far-sighted and near-sighted prescriptions are a given, but you can also find multifocal lenses, astigmatism correction and prism lenses to correct eye orientation.
Choosing Your Lens Type
Along with your prescription details, you can also customize your lenses with a range of different options. Blue light blocking lenses prevent eye damage from digital screens. Blue light can disturb sleep patterns and potentially damage vision long term. You can also find Transitions® lenses which adapt to the surrounding light level; this type of lens gives you both prescription eyeglasses and sunglasses in one frame!
Selecting the Right Frame Size for You
There are a few different measurements for eyeglasses that you should be aware of when choosing your frame. The lens width shows the horizontal width of the lens at its widest point, while the bridge width tells us the distance between the lenses. Your frame should only be slightly wider than your face. This fit, along with the eyeglass nose pads, ensures there is no face squeezing going on. Check our frame measurements guide for more info.
Lightweight frames weigh 15 grams or lighter without the lenses.
