Understanding eyewear and all of the options available can sometimes feel overwhelming. One term you might have come across in your glasses journey is ‘low nose bridge glasses.’ At Zenni, we use the term “Universal Fit Glasses”. But what does it mean, and how does it affect your choice of glasses? In this post, we’ll break down the features of low nose bridge glasses, and how they could be just what you’ve been looking for.

The Anatomy of Low Nose Bridge Glasses

Firstly, it’s important to understand what we mean by a ‘nose bridge.’ The bridge of a pair of glasses is the area that rests on your nose. It’s critical to the fit and comfort of your glasses. If your glasses are constantly slipping down your nose, it might be because the bridge isn’t the right fit for you. This is where Universal Fit Glasses come in. They feature a lower bridge design, which means they sit higher on your face.

Key Features of Low Nose Bridge Glasses

These glasses are designed with particular features to ensure the utmost comfort and functionality. Here are some of the distinct attributes:

  • Extended nose pads: One of the features of low nose bridge glasses is extended nose pads. These provide extra support, preventing your glasses from sliding down.
  • Flatter frame front: These glasses also have a flatter frame front, which means they sit more securely and comfortably on your face.

Who Should Consider Low Nose Bridge Glasses?

Anyone who has ever dealt with their glasses constantly slipping down their nose or pressing into their cheeks should explore the option of low nose bridge glasses. These glasses are especially ideal for individuals with low or wide nose bridges, high cheekbones, or close-set eyes.

Alternative Option for Low Nose Bridge Glasses

Another option for low nose bridge glasses are glasses with nose pads. Nose pads offer customizable support, allowing you to adjust the fit to sit comfortably on your unique facial structure. This added flexibility ensures that your glasses not only stay securely in place but also provide the necessary comfort for extended wear.

Understanding your unique features and how they impact your glasses fit can significantly improve your eyewear experience. At Zenni Optical, we believe that everyone should have access to comfortable, high-quality eyewear. Universal Fit Glasses for low nose bridges offer an excellent solution for those who struggle with fit and comfort, allowing everyone to enjoy their eyewear journey.
