The 3 Best Nose Pads For Glasses


Whether your glasses slip down, pinch the bridge of your nose, or look lopsided in the mirror, the best nose pads for glasses can help them stay in place all day long.

Before choosing a set of nose pads, you'll want to consider the color and material of your favorite frames. While many wire-framed glasses have a small, metal attachment that makes it easy to replace nose pads, a lot of thick, plastic frames don't. In this case, your best bet is to invest in adhesive nose pads that work like a sticker — just take off the back and press directly onto the frame. Be sure to look for a set that comes in a color that matches your frames (or even better — clear) to keep them discreet.

Most sets of nose pads these days are created from foam or silicone, and while they both work in the same way, each can have different implications for your skin. Silicone nose pads are super soft and tend to keep your glasses in place a bit better, but they can also trap facial oils and makeup beneath them, which could cause irritation. On the other hand, foam nose pads, are thinner and more resistant to oil, but they do tend to slip a bit more and may need to be replaced frequently.

Here's a round-up of some of the best nose pads for glasses out there to help you narrow it down.
