I am often asked, "How did NoseComfort get started?" It all started when my wife was faced with a serious need; She wears eyeglasses and had a Septorhinoplasty performed. As a part of her post-surgical consultation, the doctor instructed her to tape the eyeglasses to her forehead to prevent the eyeglasses from coming into contact with her nose during the healing process. She soon discovered the tape simply would not adhere to her forehead and in frustration, told me the tape wasn't working, and asked me if there was anything I could do to solve this problem.
Having an engineering background, I soon realized some type of eyeglass support system would need to be designed. I did a needs-assessment and realized we would need to have a horizontal component and a vertical component with a hook on the end, so as to support the bridge part of her eyeglasses. I went to a local hobby shop and purchased some sheet plastic material. Using this sheet plastic, I fashioned a T-shaped piece of plastic with a hook at the bottom. I used her hairdryer as a heat source to heat and bend the plastic to form the hook. This hook would support the bridge part of the eyeglasses from touching her nose. I went to a local fabric store and found some elastic bra strap material, which was attached to each end of the T-section. A piece of foam rubber was attached to the back of the support.
Over the next few months, I worked on a number of prototypes until I arrived at a final design. Once I had this design, a patent attorney was contacted and a patent application was filed. In talking with the patent attorney, he advised doing a patent search. This patent search produced other patents that were designed to keep the eyeglasses from touching the nose. Many of the various patents were very complex in design and simply did not perform as well as my design. After finalizing the design of the eyeglass support, we needed to have a name that would be descriptive of the product and decided NoseComfort best described the product. NoseComfort is a U.S. registered trademark, and is covered by U.S. Patent # 8,152,298.
NoseComfort Eyeglass Support, Forming Machine
All of the NoseComfort prototypes were hand-formed. To mass-produce the eyeglass support appliance, automated forming and supporting machines had to be designed and custom-built by a team of engineers who specialized in automation of this type of product.
