Saddle Bridge Nose Pads: Saddle bridge nose pads are a unique type of eyeglass nose pad that helps to alleviate the pressure of glasses on the wearer's nose. Typical nose pads are comprised of a left and right pad which work together by resting on each side of the nasal area. In contrast, a saddle bridge nose pad spreads the weight of the glasses continuously over the top and sides of the nose, thus reducing the weight of the glasses on the nose surface.
Not all glasses are manufactured to accept saddle bridge nose pads. Typically, spectacles are designed to either use a saddle bridge nose pad or otherwise to use a complimentary pair of left and right nose pads.
Saddle bridge nose pads are available in a variety of sizes, materials, colors, and mounting types.
Each saddle bridge nose pad is fabricated with a specific type of mounting design which fits the particular type of bridge mount on the eyewear frame.
The major types of saddle bridge pad mounts are pictured above.
When choosing a replacement saddle bridge for your eyeglasses, be sure to take into account the mounting method since different eyeglass manufacturers utilize different types of mounting hardware to accommodate each type of saddle bridge nose pad. A snap-in based saddle bridge will not fit a screw-hole based saddle bridge. Similarly, a saddle bridge that uses two screw holes to mount to the eyeglass frame will not be compatible with a single hole or snap-on design.
Nose pads with a saddle bridge design fulfill a special need in the eyewear marketplace to address the needs of spectacle wearers who wish to enhance the comfort of their glasses by reducing the weight and pressure exerted on their nose.
