Are glasses with nose pads better?
In the previous article, we discussed “What are the components of eyeglasses?”. In this article, let’s talk about “Are glasses with nose pads better?”.
Nowadays, there are various styles of glasses and more and more materials. Because there are more choices, it is easier for people to be difficult to choose. Glasses are not only tools for correcting myopia, but also as accessories for people who love beauty. Therefore, the attention of glasses is getting higher and higher, and there are more and more problems. Recently, many people have asked a question. Is it better to have glasses with nose pads or glasses without nose pads?
What are nose pads？
Nose pads include stipule stalk, stipule boxes, and stipules. The stipules are in direct contact with the nose and play a role in supporting and stabilizing the frame. Certain molded plastic frames may not have stipules and stipule boxes, and the stipules are connected to the mirror ring.(https://www.koalaeye.com/collections/eyeglasses)
In fact, when designing different materials and different styles, the designer will judge whether nose pads are needed according to the comfort and aesthetics of the glasses. Generally, metal frames are equipped with nose pads, and the nose pads are movable in order to adapt to various nose shapes. Metal frames with nose pads can prevent some people's skin from being allergic to metal. On the other hand, metal looks more rigid and business, and adding nose pads is more beautiful and comfortable. Most glasses without nose pads are sheet-framed glasses. The sheet material is relatively light and non-allergenic. In terms of aesthetics and comfort, no nose pads are more suitable.
Benefits of glasses with nose pads
Glasses with nose pads reduce the load on the bridge of the nose and make them more comfortable to wear. In addition, glasses with nose pads can have a non-slip effect, especially for people with a low nose bridge. It will be much more comfortable to choose glasses with nose pads, so there is no need to worry about the trouble of holding the glasses all the time.
Benefits of glasses without nose pads
Glasses without nose pads are mostly used for sheet materials because the sheet material is lighter and not allergic. From the viewpoint of aesthetics and comfort, no nose pads are more suitable. Glasses without nose pads have a relatively small contact area with the bridge of the nose, so it is not easy to have obvious indentations on the bridge of the nose, while glasses with nose pads will have obvious indentations after wearing them for a long time.
In addition to supporting the frame, the nose pad has another function to prevent allergies and avoid discomfort caused by allergies to metals or other materials. Whether it is better to have glasses with nose pads or without nose pads, depends on your personal situation. If your nose is sensitive to weight or the bridge of your nose is lower, you should choose glasses with nose pads. If you are particularly looking for beauty and don't want any marks on your face, then choose glasses without nose pads.
In fact, it is hard to say which one is better between nose pads and no nose pads. The key is to look at personal preference and wearing comfort. Generally speaking, a high nose bridge is suitable for choosing frames without nose pads. It is more suitable to choose the frames with nose pads for people with flat nose bridges in order to prevent the glasses from sliding off and affecting the visual effect.
