Can't help you with the nose pads, but I can offer an alternative that may work depending on the frame. My wife recently received some Nerd Wax and found it works well for her. Her frames are acetate, which seems like an ideal match for it. Not sure how well it would work with pads on metal frames.
I live in warm climate so sweat and facial oil is always an issue and main reason the typical acetate frames never cut it for me, ymmv

I do not have a need for "eye correction" as I have 20/20.
I need the following two things:
1)Spectacles / Eye Glasses that look like prescription but with Zero Power - Bonus: Anti Glare for Computer usage
Goal: A frame design that makes me look more mature and older for INTERVIEWS and EARLY INTERACTIONS with Clients & New Teams.
Issue: (I look way young for my age and have a baby face)
- What kind of frame designs/ construction would suit this purpose? (Links & Pictures welcome) - Conservative & Mature is better.
- Any particular kind of Zero Power lens/ you might recommend?
2) Photo-chromatic Sunglasses (+Polarized?) for daily wear and weekend hanging out. The "Go To" daily pair (Maybe buy 1 and then a second).
Goal: Air, wind and dust protection and clarity while driving or walking around
- Please suggest brands and models?
- My homework on this points to few that I found affordable and decently well built -
e.g. - Ryders - Around 89/ 99 $ - Photochromatic and Polarized for Glare protection.
- Found a few brands that support Photochromatic and Polarized on REI.com - Should I list them so you can rate/ review them?
Thanks in advance.
In terms of frames, there are tons of options so my advice would be to go to a brick and mortar store and try some on. Nobody can tell you what brand or style to try because everyone's face shapes are different.
For polarized/photochromatic lenses, again they are not created equally. Some have better clarity, more scratch resistance and better overall. if you want true bang for the buck for polarized lenses, try Polaroid Sunglasses. Launched by Safilo and great lenses for what you pay. They retail for under $120. Most "active lifestyle" brands have terrible quality lenses. Usually very thin, flimsy, distorted vision and soft. 1 good pair is better than several poor quality pairs.
Photo chromatic/ Photo chromic is a first priority.
Polarized is a second. A bonus if in addition to Photo chromatic.
I am looking all over here- http://www.polaroideyewear.com/ but unable to figure out which ones have both.
Any suggestions please?
- Photo chromatic
- scratch/ break resistance
I don't know if Polaroid are photochromatic. They aren't as far as I'm aware of.
So can you please suggest a brand/ model that are photochromatic / photochromic.
For photochromic and polarized, there aren't a whole lot of choices and they will retail for $300+. Anything less and they quality won't be good. One brand that sticks out for me would be Serengetti. I think Maui Jim has few pairs if I remember correctly, as well. I know Nike has some sporty "golf" sunglasses with a purple-ish lens that is transition branded but I can't recall if they are polarized. Occasionally, a random brand will have a model or two as well.
Is there any way to find place or sales for Serengetti or Maui Jim?
Why don't you just get the ones from Han if you really like them?
