Ok, solution to all your problems http://www.tdtomdavies.com/COUTURE.html Tom Davies: They can custom make anything you pick shapes colors, nose pads, sizes materials, anything they can even make glasses out of buffalo horn. They have tons of styles you can modify or come up with pretty much anything you like from scratch. It takes a few weeks to get them but they will be one of a kind. They are actually pretty reasonable on price as well. Mostly around the $300 ish range give or take. Which if you know anything about quality eyewear is pretty reasonable. If you're in the Chicago area and are interested, PM me and I can set up a time for you to come check out the line and custom make your own. I know this sounds like a commercial, but its truly not. I've been an optician for over 10 years and have faced this exact problem with many patients. Pro Design worked, but quality wasnt quite there... Now there are a few other lines that offer a chunky plastic look without having to be plastic and have nose pads look into, Mykita, IC Berlin, and Orgreen. They are a bit more pricey though $450-$500ish.

You can't even tell from the outside they are really there and they sit almost flush with the stock bridge.

It costs $30 per glasses and the turnaround time is around 2-3 days depending on when you are available. Most of the people there speak both English and Korean, but if you need someone more fluent, Angie is really helpful.

I hope this helps!


awesome thanks for the tip

Ahh I wanted to get the sunglass version but doesn't fit my asian nose. Think they will work if i put in nose pads, but that would change the look of the glasses since it has a key hold opening.

would the frames from a brand like shanghai tang be for asian noses? i know a few japanese brands are built for asians. maybe effectors? forget the exact name but they have a cool pair like the black on marcello mastrianni wore in 81/2 with less wrap of course..

I'm an Asian guy and it has always been very difficult for me to get glasses that fit my flat bridge. I recently went to get new eyeglasses at my local optician and inquired with them about nosepad installation on plastic frames. They said they can send them out to have nosepads installed on virtually any plastic frame. There is some company that does this that they contract out to. The service actually shaves off the existing plastic nose parts and polishes the frame so it looks like new, and installs adjustable nosepad arms and pads on the frame. I'm quite happy with the result, it looks like it came from the factory. Ask for silicone pads, they are very comfortable and don't slip as much too. The place I went to is The Focal Point Opticians in Berkeley, CA: http://www.focalpointopticians.com/ Cost is $65. and it takes about a week since they don't do it there but rather send it out. If you are in SF however, I've heard this place is good and they also have this service: http://www.invisionopto.com/ The optometrist there is asian himself. BTW, I got these frames really like them so far: http://www.bartonperreira.com/m/show_style.php?id=1028 I also got a custom e clip sunglass clip to go with it and it looks great with the glasses: http://www.clipon.com/ The owner of The Focal Point is also the inventor/owner of the e clip.

go to korean optical. tons of brands to choose from some made in paris designed in korea. honestly almost every pair in that store fit me, whereas in the optical that carries serengeti only 1 or 2 pieces.

Agree. Just go to any store that caters to asians. They will have the biggest selection because they will pick mostly "asian fit" frames.

i just bought a cheap ass pair for $10. what i noticed is that even though it's plastic they have nosepads. no wonder they fit so well. from the one i picked the quality is not there but the styling is superb. it's in a faux medium brown tortoise and sharply rectangular.

i also bought a pair of sunglasses but those were metal. they also have some cazal looking type stuff. the one i bought looks like george clooney's pair in oceans 11. the brand is called dox. they're okay IMO. better than mall designer stuff.
