I want cheap Chinese plastic nosepads for my expensive Danish glasses.
I have these Lindberg Corona frames
, and have since 2001 or so. They were stupidly expensive, but, per-year, they're actually very reasonable -- especially considering how hard I am on my possessions. But they do have a major flaw, which is that the fancy silicone nose pads fall out pretty frequently. If I notice it happen, I can just pop the pad back in. But if I take a minute to notice, I've probably lost the pad. And they cost like $5 to replace, which completely destroys any economic benefits of these frames, not to mention the inconvenience. But in 2004, I went to China, and lost both my pads. So, with great trepidation, I visited an optician in Qingdao. They gave me a glass of water and some cheap plastic nosepads, which were stiff enough that they simply didn't fall out. They lasted until this year, when I stupidly failed to save them when I sent my frames off to have the lenses replaced. Oops. So now I am on a business trip, and I have only one pad, and I'm wish I had my cheap Chinese pads back. But Google gives me no ideas about where I might find these. If anyone know where I could get them in Portland, OR today after work, that would be awesome. Else, in New York City or online would be cool.
TL;DR: Where can I buy plastic nose pads that fit my Lindberg Corona frames?
