Specially Designed Comfort Nose Pads
Air Active nose pads are unique in the fact that they distribute weight across the pad evenly because of its air filled channel.
Although the pad may appear to have a pocket of air, it really has an open channel that allows air to pass into the pad and out again depending upon the pressure or weight applied.

For many of you who have worn hard uncomfortable nose pads and wanted a change, these should do the trick. There are pros and cons though to everything, and this has no exception.

They are quality pads but are not invincible. The backing on the snap-in mount air active nose pads has a polycarbonate piece that is joined in the manufacturing process. Just like many other pads, they are a two piece mold and therefore have the chance of ripping. Think of a balloon that has a hard plastic base. If you tug on the balloon enough, there is a chance that it will rip. This goes with anything that has a soft pliable material attached to a rigid surface. We are not discouraging the use of this mount style of the air active nose pads. We have offered these for years and with only a couple of cases. Yet, we just want to inform you that with proper care you can get the best life out of your nose pads.
