Nose Pad Buyers Guide for Glasses, Designer Eyewear, & Sunglasses
A Nose Pad Popper tool is commonly used by opticians when performing eyeglass nose pad maintenance and repair work on push-in, push-on, snap-in, or snap-on nosepads.
Nose pads are secured to an eyeglass frame by means of a nose pad mounting arm.
The fork-like end of the nosepad popper is simply placed around the narrow stem of the nose pad and then a slight upward tilting pressure is applied to this fork-like end. This action dislodges the nosepad from the nose pad arm mount. Sometimes the tilting pressure is combined with a slight rotational twisting motion to aid in the removal of the nosepad.
As an alternative to using a nosepad popper tool, opticians may use a screwdriver to remove a nosepad from the nose pad mounting arm. In this case, the head of the screwdriver is placed between the inside base of the push-on nosepad and the nose pad mounting arm whereby the screwdriver is used to pry the nosepad away from the nose pad arm mount by applying a twisting motion. This method is more prone to scratching an eyeglass lens.
