We can replace any nose pads on your eyeglasses and sunglasses

Nose pad replacements is a regular and common repair done to both sunglasses and eyeglasses. Nosepads get degraded with time and need to be changed. Sometimes they simply fall off and they get lost. The most common repair is that the stem that holds the nosepad gets broken off and needs to be re-welded. We can replace all types of nosepads.

We can also fix any type of structural damage to the nose pad mount. We replace nosepads such as oval nose pads,softwing nose pads and button nose pads. We also service the primary four mountings foundations that the nose pads utilize for eyeglass frames and sunglass frames. Eyewear typicaly use screw-in, push-in, and slide-in nose pad mountings, further in addition some nose pads use a stick on mounting which is common for nose pads of the plastic eyewear. Each of these these types of foundations are detailed in below illustration:

Types of nose pads.
Types of mountings.
Screw In or Screw On

Screw in nose pads are mounted on an eyeglasses frame by using a tiny nose pad screw. When it's possible we will use the same type of screw that came with your frames from the manufacturer. Since there are many simular types, we will do our best to match perfectly if one can not be gotten from them Two screws that may look simular will very easily differ due to the types of threading or diameter. Our experts are knowledgeable to make certain that they do not break the thread and destroy the foundation.

Snap In , Push On or Slide In

Snap In , Push On or Slide In eyewear nose pads and eyeglasses nose pieces are definatley the most easiest to work with. They are a slight finger press away from keeping the nosepad in place. Once again these little items differ in size and its best to use only the one provided by the manufacturer for a perfect fit and stable nose pad placement. THe frame mount is very important because it will hold that specific pin and control the nosepad movement of the nose pad mounting arm.

Stick In or Stick On

The stick on nosepad is different from the rest because it does not require any kind of frame mounting hardware. It simply uses an adhesive. Adhesive nosepads peel off from a waxy material and they may be applied to most surfaces on any eyeglass frame. Adhesive nosepads for glasses and eyeglasses are normally available in a foam material and silicone.

Nose pad screws

Replacement nosepad screws for sunglasses and eyeglasses are one of the most common repair jobs that we provide. We use stainless steel or titanium nose pad screws directly from the manufacturer .

Designer eyeglasses and sunglasses frames are normally made of titanium or a titanium alloy. We will match the exact screw for your nose pad as they come in mainly two colors which are silver and gold.

Our experts understand that the main specifications of a nosepad screw is the threading and head. While length is also a key factor , any screw can be micro cut to size.

To the common layman it is very difficult to visually assertain the difference between one nosepad screw threading and the threading used on another nose pad screw. This is why its very important to have a trained professional do the work for you.
