Generic ones should fit but you need to make sure you get the right type. I can't see from your photo whether they're screw in ones (there'll be a small hole for a screw through the side of the metal terminal) or push in ones (no screw hole).

This site goes into that in more detail: https://www.thesunglassfix.com/uk/nose-pads (and has an option to enter your model number to double check).

If there's a screw hole then you'll need the screw in ones. The push in ones have a different fitting and will fall out.

thinking of upgrading my GDC goldies with Saville Rowe Roundeyes:

Are they as reputable as they appear to be? Any 1st hand knowledge here?

Where can I buy Hakusan Megane frames online? I see one US-based retailer, but nothing in Japan or elsewhere.

Best place online to get glasses reglazed?

I'm assuming whatever place I send it to can get the PD measurement from the current lenses, right?

Not necessarily and better not to in case they were wrongly-glazed in the first place. Using a ruler in a mirror (or getting someone else to measure) should be accurate enough.

There are some links to companies that reglaze in the top post (click "Show original post"). Séamus at The Optical Workshop will see you right (tell him Andy from the internet sent you).
