Finding Frames for the Low Nose Bridge Dilemma

The quest for the perfect pair of glasses can be both exciting and frustrating, especially when faced with the challenge of finding frames that snugly fit a low nose bridge. Many individuals with this characteristic struggle with glasses sliding down or feeling insecure on their faces. Fortunately, there’s a solution that combines style and functionality. In a recent TikTok, @Clara shared her experience with purchasing a pair of Zenni glasses that helps solve the struggles she faces when choosing glasses for a low nose bridge.

The Dilemma

Individuals with a low nose bridge often encounter difficulties in finding glasses that stay in place comfortably. The frames may not rest securely on the nose, leading to constantly having to push up the glasses or unstable vision. This frustration is not uncommon, and it’s essential to address it for a seamless eyewear experience.

Glasses for Low Nose Bridges

There are a few options for people with low nose bridges. Some popular ones include glasses with adjustable nose pads (similar to Clara’s) and glasses with Universal Bridge Fit (or Asian Fit) design. Let’s take a brief look at each of them:

Glasses with Nose Pads

Glasses equipped with adjustable nose pads offer a customized solution to the low nose bridge predicament. They can be adjusted to fit the unique contours of your nose, ensuring a secure fit. They also distribute the weight of the glasses more evenly across the nose to improve comfort during all-day wear. Lastly they improve stability with dynamic head movement, allowing for uninterrupted clarity.

Glasses Universal Bridge Fit

Glasses equipped with Universal Bridge Fit (also known as Low Bridge Fit or Asian Fit) feature one uniform bridge with larger and extended nose pads to compensate for low nose bridges. This allows the glasses to vault better away from the face and to distribute the weight on the sides of the nose. Other benefits include a lessened pantoscopic tilt and temples with wider curves to improve comfort.
