HOW TO ORDER YOUR NOSE PADS
Before you start to search through the nose pads, the first thing you need to determine is how they mount to your sunglasses (as this is how they are categorised). Take your nose pad(s) off and look to see if they are pushed in, screwed on, or if they have a metal part that clips or crimps on. Or, you may have the less common black silicon nose pads that attach to a metal rectangle, or the post mounted slide on nose pads.
