Nose Pad Buyers Guide for Glasses, Designer Eyewear, & Sunglasses
Symmetrical: Symmetric eyeglass nose pads are nose pads where both the left and right side of a nosepad are identical mirror images of each other. This shape enables both the left and right nose pads to be interchangeable with each other as they both have the identical shape.
Optical retailers often prefer symmetrical replacement nose pads for glasses repair over other asymmetric shapes such as D-shape nosepads, as the merchant only needs to stock one nose pad shape per size as compared to a pair or set of left and right nosepads.
Symmetrical nose pads provide eyeglasses with excellent weight distribution and are found on all types of eyewear frames and sunglasses.
The variety of symmetrical nose pad shapes is quite diverse, although a subclass of symmetric nose pads includes the popular oval and button or round nosepad shape. Common available sizes include: 9mm, 11mm, 13mm, 15mm, 17mm, and 19mm.
