Nose pads

Nose pads for glasses are the part of the glasses that sit on the nose, helping to keep the glasses in place. Eyeglass nose pads seek to provide comfort by distributing the pressure of the glasses on the bridge of the nose. The nose piece for glasses can cause discomfort or irritation if the glasses are too heavy for the nose or if the glass’s nose grips do not effectively keep the glasses from sliding down the nose.
