1. Field of the Invention
The invention relates to a soft pad structure of glasses, and more particularly, to a soft pad having a lining pad for providing comfortable wearing experiences for users and can be rapidly combined to a glass frame. The soft pad can be further extended to form a decorative member to decorate the glasses.
2. Description of the Prior Art
For coping the different requirements, the glasses are developed and having various kinds of glasses nowadays, such as the industrial safety glasses, the sunglasses, the sports glasses and the sight corrective therapy glasses. When a user chooses a pair of glasses, the most important key point is the comfort. There are many reasons affect the wearing comfort, such as the material, the weight and the size of the glass frame, and the installing angle, the installing method and the material of the nose pad.
For improving the comfort while a user wears, a foamed plastic is attached to the inner surface of the upper portion of the eyeglass to form a lining pad. When a user wears the glasses, user's face can close to the lining pad without directly contacting the hard frame. This design can improve the comfort of wearing and avoid imprinting the face after a long time wearing. In addition, if the glasses are industrial safety glasses, this design can prevent the face from directly crashing of the hard frame while the glasses are crashed. However, as the conventional glasses utilize the foamed plastic to be a leaning pad, the crash-resistance and the comfort are bad and the leaning pad is unchangeable, so it is inconvenient for repairing. Besides, an attachment process is increased while manufacturing the glasses, so the efficiency will be lowered and the cost will be increased.
It is therefore a primary objective of the present invention to provide a soft pad structure of glasses having a lining pad extended from the inner surface of the upper portion of the eyeglass to be a leaning pad for providing comfortable wearing experiences for users.
It is therefore another objective of the present invention to provide a soft pad structure of glasses having a decorative member extended from the outer surface of the upper portion of the eyeglass, and the decorative member can be coating in different colors to enhance the appearance while wearing.
It is therefore a further objective of the present invention to provide a soft pad structure of glasses that can be assembled rapidly and firmly to improve the purpose of convenient combination and easy repair.
It is therefore a further objective of the present invention to provide a soft pad structure of glasses that extends out to form a nose pad to support the glasses on the user's nose for providing comfortable wearing experiences for users.
According to the present invention, a soft pad structure of glasses comprises at least one fixing frame, an eyeglass and at least one soft pad. The soft pad is equipped on the eyeglass and includes a fixing member of long shape to wrap the edge of an upper portion of the eyeglass. The fixing member forwarding the inner side of the eyeglass extends down to form a lining pad, and the lining pad covers the inner surface of the upper portion of the eyeglass to be a leaning pad for providing comfortable wearing experiences for users. The lining pad corresponding to the center position of the eyeglass further extends down to form a connection member, and the connection member forwarding down extends left and right to respectively form a nose pad strip and form a nose pad of inverted V shape. The nose pad is equipped on the eyeglass. In addition, the fixing member forwarding the outer side of the eyeglass extends down to form a decorative member, and the decorative member can be coating in different colors to enhance the appearance while wearing. The eyeglass and the fixing member of the soft pad are embedded in an embedding trench of the fixing frame, and are assembled with the fixing frame. The left side and the right side of the fixing frame can be further extended out to form a frame body.
These and other objectives of the present invention will no doubt become obvious to those of ordinary skill in the art after reading the following detailed description of the preferred embodiment that is illustrated in the various figures and drawings.
Please refer to
In addition, in order to improve the firmness of the eyeglass 10 installed on the fixing frame 40 and prevent the soft pad 20 and the eyeglass 10 from falling, at least one fixing pillar 12 is provided in the surface of the eyeglass 10 and a fixing hole 46 is provided on the position of the fixing frame 40 corresponding to the fixing pillar 12, so as to the fixing pillar 12 can be inserted into the fixing hole 46 for jointing. A nose pad 13 is provided on the center position of the inner surface of the eyeglass 10. This glass with the nose pad 13 can provide comfortable wearing experiences for users.
Please refer to
In addition, for improving the practicability of the soft pad 20, the lining pad 24 corresponding to the center position of the eyeglass 10 further extends down to form a connection member 30, and the connection member 30 forwards down and extends to the left side and the right side respectively to form a nose pad strip 30 and form a nose pad 35 of an inverted V shape. Each nose pad strip 32 has a assemble hole 36, and the center position of the eyeglass 10 is of an inverted V shape. Two sides of the eyeglass 10 corresponding to the assemble hole 36 have a joint pillar 16 for coordinating the assemble hole 36 to equip the nose pad 35 onto the eyeglass 10. The joint pillar 16 of the nose pad strip 32 is inserted into the assemble hole 36 to combine with the eyeglass 10. However, the combination of the eyeglass 10 and the nose pad 35 can also be others, such as that the joint member of the eyeglass 10 is a hole and the assemble member of the nose pad strip 32 is a pillar. The nose pad 35 and the soft pad 20 are form-integrated, and are of soft and elastic material.

In contrast to the prior art, in the present invention, the fixing member 22 of the soft pad 20 can extend to form the lining pad 24 and the decorative member 29. The lining pad 24 can be a leaning pad while the user wearing the glasses to improve the comfort, and the decorative member 29 can be designed in different colors to enhance the appearance while wearing. The soft pad wraps the upper edge of the eyeglass 10 with the fixing member 22, and the eyeglass 10 is embedded in the embedding trench 42 of the fixing frame 40 or the frame body 50 to assemble the soft pad 20 onto the fixing frame 40 or the frame body 50. The soft pad 20 can be assembled rapidly without any tools that is conveniently combined and easily repaired, and the lining pad 24 can extend down to form the nose pad 35 in the inverted V shape to improve the practicability of the soft pad 20.
Those skilled in the art will readily observe that numerous modifications and alterations of the device may be made while retaining the teachings of the invention. Accordingly, the above disclosure should be construed as limited only by the metes and bounds of the appended claims.
