12 mm Slide-on silicone nose pads
12 mm symmetrical nose pad for rimless frames
Slide-on nose pads, mainly designed for rimless frames. These are 12 mm in length and 7 mm wide. They are oval in shape and are available in silicone and vinyl material. The Silicone material being the most flexible and softest of the two materials, where the vinyl nose pad is more rigid. However the vinyl nose pad is not as rigid as some hard acetate(plastic) material nose pads. They are still flexible, yet not as much as the silicone. These nose pads mount into an opening that looks like a small hook. They are mounted onto the frame by sliding the post of the nose pad down into the hook area. Reminder: As with any nose pad, be sure to check the type of mount needed for your frame, in order to correctly choose the style best for you. Materials and sizes of the nose pads are more personal preference than going by what one has worn in the past.
