How do you adjust nose pads on glasses?
In the previous article, we discussed “How do I stop my glasses from hurting my nose?“. In this article, let’s talk about “How do you adjust nose pads on glasses?”.
Adjustment of the angle of the nose pad
For the angle of the nose pad, you can apply torque in the horizontal or vertical direction according to the deformation needs. It can be held in the proper part of the nose pad with needle-nose pliers, and the torque can be applied at a certain angle in the vertical plane or horizontal plane to achieve the purpose in accordance with the deformation needs. In the time of repeated actions, in order to prevent the welding place of the nose pad and the glasses ring from breaking due to repeated stress deformation, you can use your fingers to apply external force at the welding place to change the deformation position and play the purpose of protection.
Adjustment of the upper and lower position of the nose pad
The nose pad can be pulled up and down with the pliers of the nose pad to achieve the purpose. You can use needle-nose pliers to clamp on the nose pad and apply torque in a certain direction to change the upper and lower position of the nose pad. When applying the torque, the nose pad can be pressed down or pulled up by the pliers to change the position of the deformation of the bracket, to prevent repeated deformation and fracture near the solder joint.
Replace the nose pad on your glasses
Remove the screws clockwise and use a toothpick to remove the things left of the broken pads so that the new one can be installed. The next step is to fix the nose pad that we just removed from it. Hold the glasses and then the hole for the nose pad is up, then place the nose pad in and press it with your finger. Then you can see that the round hole in the nose pad overlays with the round hole in that part, and at this time, you can turn the screws. When you finally turn it, you usually turn it three times to hold the nose rest in place. Often, the nose pad can be swung back and forth after installation. This is to match the different shapes of our noses.
Seek professional help.
Many plates, TR glasses have fixed nose pads that cannot be changed. But the metal material of the nose pad can be changed. An optometrist who is a professional optometrist may not be a good adjuster. There is no conflict between the two. The skills about that shall be developed in a lot of practice. For a seemingly easy operation, its strength is invisible real skills.
