I've just started browsing around myself to see, but you are talking about an "eyeglasses pad arm" right? The little metal piece that holds the pad.

I almost think it would be best to get a cheapo dollar store pair of glasses and remove the arms from those, though I don't know the difficulty involved.

@tiamat114: That would be the item!

That's a pretty good idea, so long as it fits. But I could tell by looking at it. Thanks!

You could also go to a store that sells eye glasses (like one of those one hour places) or even most optometrists who sell eye glasses. All of those stores should be able to do adjustments and that includes replacing those little pads. Not sure what those places would charge (might be free, might be something crazy like $20).

My optometrist does this for free (pad replacement and adjustments). Check yours out and see what they say.

I think the pads are just called "nosepads".

It sounds like the OP is looking for the piece that holds the nosepad, not the nosepad itself. Unless they are prescription sunglasses I would just buy a similar pair somewhere else.

@jsimsace: Probably should, but I'm stubborn. It's an old pair of glasses that I've had for a really long time and still like, despite them being in somewhat poor condition. But yeah, that's the part.

Those are in those little eyeglass repair kits you see as impulse items at most pharmacies and discount stores. Your closest chain pharmacy i.e. CVS, Walgreens or Wal~Mart should have them for around $5.00. The little kit includes a baby screwdriver, nose pads, tiny screws.
