What does having a low nose bridge even mean?

Before we dive into whether you need low bridge fit eyewear. Let's first look at what having a low nose bridge even means. When we say high nose bridge or low nose bridge, we're really looking at the height of the nasal bone between the eyes. Low bridge means, when looking at the side profile, the horizontal distance from the top of your nasal bone to your eyes is much more shallow, similar to the one in the top picture. On the other hand, a high or tall nose bridge means that horizontal distance is much greater and your nose protrudes out a lot more.

 

A quick test to see if you have a low nose bridge.

To quickly check if you have a low nose bridge, look straight into a mirror and pinpoint where your nose bridge starts.If the top of your nose bridge starts at pupil level or below, you have a low nose bridge and you'll likely benefit from low bridge fit sunglasses.
