If blessed with a Roman or Grecian nose - where your nose begins above your pupils - try our frames with a high bridge. Look for this if your frame is sitting too high on your face (e.g. your eyebrows are in the lenses). Shop frames for High Noses.

All our acetate frames are also available with a deeper nose pad addition - you can add this free of charge at checkout.
