It appears that glasses without nose pads are called different things depending on what the glasses are made of. A metal frame without nose pads is called a ‘strap-bridge’. Plastic framed glasses without nose pads are called a ‘saddle bridge’.
The strap-bridge, on metal framed glasses, will be in full contact with the nose, thus spreading the weight.
Some metal frames will have an in-laid plastic nose-bridge known as a ‘comfort bridge’. This style of bridge is intended to spread the weight of the glasses by also being fully in contact with the nose.
Plastic glasses frames that have no nose-pads, usually have an extended spread at the nose bridge which is ‘as one’ with the rest of the frame. This will be a one-size-fits-all nose bridge which will rest on the nose where it touches.
Those who wear glasses all the time have always had to accept that they have to rest on the nose. There are no choices. Whether you have nose pads or one of the other forms of nose bridges, we can’t defy gravity. Glasses rest on the nose and we have to treat this as normal. Normal to use the nose as a prop which evolution hadn’t calculated for.
Nose pads make marks
Then, there are the consequences. Constant wearing of glasses leaves a mark on the nose. Either a permanent red mark each side of the nose or pronounced dents where, either the nose pads have been pressing or the part of the bridge that touches, have been in constant contact.
Glasses wearers are reminded every time they look in a bathroom mirror, with their glasses off. Oh yes, you wear glasses, see how it stands out. And this is on your face. The very area of our entire body that is most considered sacrosanct.
It’s a dilemma that’s been around ever since glasses were invented. We’ve always had to put up with it, until now.
There is a way of appreciating the convenience of the good vision that glasses bring without them touching your nose.
This is the Specs-Delight. It will hold your glasses off your nose and, if it’s a problem for you, it will hold them off your ears as well.
The Specs-Delight is designed by someone who has had enough of the marks on the nose. It will gently clasp the back of the head in a manner that will provide a secure holder that will support your glasses off your nose and ears.
Fitted correctly, with the right level of tension, you will barely feel that you’re wearing it. It doesn’t need to be tight-fitting to provide the support that’s needed to hold your glasses off your nose and ears.
You can then experience the bliss of wearing glasses without them touching your nose and ears.
It’s when something is taken away
that we appreciate it most
You may also notice that, having worn the Specs-Delight for a few hours and then wearing glasses without it, you will notice the difference. It’s when something is taken away that we miss it most.
Have you had enough of your glasses resting heavily on your nose all-day-long, leaving red marks or dents? Do you want to get out of the habit of having to push your glasses back up your nose when they slip? Well, here’s your chance to change things for the better. Find out more about the Specs-Delight and see what it will do for you.
