Where to buy eyeglass nose pads?

A bit of a weird request but anyone know where to buy eyeglass replacement nose pads/pieces like the ones on the website below in the GTA:

http://www.armstrongoptical.com/Merchan ... de=600-400

I can go to my optician but he is kind out of the way (does it for free) and other optical stores want to charge me like $10 since I didn't buy the frames there.

Might as well do it myself and I like to replace mine once a year.

Any help is appreciated.

mine recently broke, and i couldn't find those either... apparently some pharmacies stock these in their eyeglasses repair kits, but the pharmaplus ones aren't the good type.

i ended up having them replaced at costco's optical center (i believe they charge 5.99$+tax)

EASY & CHEAP! go to the dollar store and find a pair that has the same nose pads... change them yourself with one of those tiny screwdrivers (available at some dollar stores)

After a year or so.. doesn't it get all hard? It cut my nose a few times and I just go get it replaced.

true, it does get hard... it becomes like plastic

but none have ever cut my nose in my +10 years of wearing glasses

that and i've only had 2 pairs where the nose pad broke :)

does anyone know where i can buy the stick on ones either in the GTA or online? i prefer the stick on ones b/c i cut them in half so that they aren't visible from the front.

Hi, I am planning on buying sunglasses with plastic frames and they never fit well on my face because I am Asian, so I did the following research:

You can get stick on silicone nose pads from eBay : Item number: 180307158487.

Karir in Toronto (416-363-4669) can install permanent nose pads to plastic frames with no nose pads. Depending on what your frame is like and what you need, he said he would charge around $50. It does not matter whether you bought the frame from him or not.

Hope that helps. Cheers!

Karir's info can be found at: http://www.karireyewear.com/location_downtown.htm.

I am in no way related to Karir, but I have bought several pairs of glasses from him over the years. They provide really good service and have really good frames, but they can be a bit pricey if there is no promotion.

Lenscrafters and Hakim are selling stick on silicone nose pads for $10 a pair.

If you are paying for nose pads, you should find another store. Any store with good service will replace it at no cost even if you didnt get it there. It is a question of customer service. Also, Karir is expensive, but they sell highend stuff. Try finding a family run business, chances are they will have good service and great prices...
