GlassesEtc.com Return Policy

At GlassesEtc.com, we want you to be completely satisfied with your purchase. That's why unlike other websites, we allow our customers to purchase up to three sunglasses/eyeglasses to try on for color/fit. However, please be aware that GlassesEtc.com charges a $7.95 fee per frame returned to our warehouse (this fee is waived if you try on 2-3 frames and decide to keep 2 or more of the frames). Fee details are below.

Returns must be postmarked within 14 days upon receipt of the product(s) and must be returned in the same condition as it was received; clean and void of any chips or damage to the lenses or frame. Frames returned damaged or modified from their original condition are not eligible for return.

Once your return is received and inspected by the fulfillment center (usually within 72 business hours of receipt), your refund will be processed and a credit will be automatically applied to your credit card or original method of payment. Please note that depending on your credit card company, it may take additional 3-5 business days after your credit is applied for it to post to your account.

2.5 EYEPHORICS Please see below regarding 2.5 Eyephorics.

The mounting of lenses into the 2.5 Eyephorics chassis is patented and exclusively done by only one Lab in the United States. If your local Optical Store does not carry this brand please make sure they will be able to accommodate your request for lenses beforehand. A one year Manufacturer Warranty applies to all 2.5 frames on the date of purchase. Manufacturer Warranty does not cover pieces/parts damaged during the disassembly of the demo lenses or installation of lenses done by a Non-Authorized Lab/Optician. Frames damaged by a third party will not be eligible for return, exchange or store credit. If your local Optician cannot accommodate your request for prescription lenses, please contact us by phone (212 535 4022), email (Help@GlassesEtc.com) or fax (646 807 4623) for a price quote on prescription lenses. GlassesEtc.com will provide you a FREE FedEx Return Shipping label* as a courtesy in case you decide to mail the frame back for lens installation. (*available for Continental US order only) We encourage our customers to contact our support staff if there is an issue regarding a product or if repair is necessary. We stand by the quality of our work and will do our best to ensure that your experience with GlassesEtc.com is a good one.

Returning At Your Own Expense:
If you are using your preferred courier service to return your purchase, please make sure to:
a) Include all item(s) you wish to return with all original package contents.
b) Use enough cushioning material to prevent damages to the frame(s) while in transit back to us.

Prescription Orders:
We encourage our customers to try on frames for fit and style. If you wish to try on a frame with demo lenses and then return it for prescription lenses installation, please contact us by phone 212 535 4022 or email Help@GlassesEtc.com.
You will be provided with a FREE FedEx Return Shipping Label via email and as you are returning the frame for prescription lenses installation, our standard restocking fee of $7.95 will be waived. Your cost will be exclusively with the shipping of the complete glasses back to you, which starts at $6.75 for Ground Shipping (5-7 Business Days).

We only use high quality brands such as Essilor, Hoya and Zeiss for prescription lens orders. We never cast our own lenses like other online vision retailers. We stand behind our work and want you to be 100% satisfied with your order.

We guarantee to fill your prescription to the exact specifications you provide us. All prescription eyeglasses undergo precise final inspection for prescription accuracy, frame symmetry, and materials before it is shipped out. If you received a prescription order that you believe was filled incorrectly, please contact us immediately. You will be asked to ship the frame back to us (at your own expense) for inspection and if they are not 100% accurate we will replace the prescription lenses and ship them back to you via ground service at no charge.

Since each lens is made to your specific prescription and cut for a particular frame, all prescription lens returns/exchanges are subject to the following restocking fees (your card is charged once the job begins in the lab):

Fees Schedule
