Do I have a low nose bridge?

If the bridge of your nose aligns with or just below your pupils, you have a low nose bridge. People with low nose bridges may also have higher cheekbones. 

How to pick the right glasses frames for your face

Horn-rimmed frames

Add a touch of geek-chic to your everyday wardrobe when you don a pair of horn-rimmed glasses . You’ll be in good company: Actors Cate Blanchett and Brad Pitt have both been photographed in horn rims. 

Wayfarer frames

Popularized by the 1983 movie, “Risky Business,” Wayfarers  are a mainstay among stars ranging from Madonna and Debbie Harry to Elvis Costello and Jack Nicholson. The trapezoidal frames rest easy on low nose bridges while adding definition to cheekbones. 

Rectangular frames

Just about anyone can rock a pair of rectangular frames , which is a good thing for those with low nose bridges. Rectangular frames add angle to rounder cheeks with a low profile that’s perfect for any style pairing. Emma Stone and Prince William are among famous rectangular jet setters.

A low nose bridge is nothing to look down at. In fact, you benefit from a bevy of stylish eyeglass frame options. Take your pick from a selection of curated low-bridge glasses  and benefit from better comfort to boot.

While you’re searching for the perfect pair of glasses for your nose bridge, make sure you also select the right size according to your pupillary distance and temple width.

Schedule an eye exam to get your eyeglasses prescription and order the best pair of frames for your low nose bridge.
