Why Warranty Is a Great Investment When Purchasing Eyewear

When investing in a new pair of glasses or sunglasses, not only do you want them to enhance your vision and style, but you also want them to last. Purchasing a warranty can protect you from paying for defective glasses or repairs from accidents. Here are some benefits of purchasing an eyewear warranty.

What Does Warranty Cover?

A warranty’s specific coverage varies depending on the manufacturer, the retailer and the type of eyewear. However, most warranties cover the following:

  • Lenses. Warranties for lenses typically cover defects in materials and workmanship. This means that if your lenses become scratched, cracked, or otherwise damaged due to a manufacturing defect, the warranty will cover the cost of repairs or replacement. Buying extra warranty protection can offer coverage from accidental scratches and cracks.

  • Frames. Warranties for frames also cover defects in materials and workmanship, as well as normal wear and tear. This means that if your frames become bent, broken, or otherwise damaged due to a manufacturing defect or normal wear and tear, you can get your glasses repaired or replaced at no cost. Purchasing extra warranty protection can cover your glasses in case of an accident, such as dropping them or sitting on them.

Warranties generally don’t cover damage caused by neglect, abuse or failure to follow the manufacturer’s recommendations. Please reach out to one of our many retail optical stores for more information about our Warranty Program.

Benefits of Having Eyewear Warranty Protection with Your New Glasses

Purchasing warranty protection with your new eyewear has many advantages, including:

  • It’s cost-effective. With warranty protection, you can save money in the long run as the minimal upfront cost of the warranty is significantly lower than potential repair or replacement costs.

  • It’s convenient. In the event of damage, warranty coverage allows for hassle-free repairs or replacements, minimizing downtime and ensuring you can continue to enjoy clear vision.

  • It extends your eyewear’s lifespan. With timely repairs, glasses and sunglasses warranty protection can extend the lifespan of your eyeglasses, allowing you to get the most out of your investment.

  • It gives you peace of mind. Knowing that your eyewear is covered by warranty offers an extra layer of assurance, allowing you to wear your glasses with confidence in any situation.

Eyewear Warranty Versus Return Policy

Note that warranties and a retailer’s return and refund policy aren’t the same thing. A store’s return and refund policy is time-sensitive — usually 30 days — and likely has many exclusions. Be sure to ask your retailer about what’s covered in the return and warranty policies. You’ll quickly learn that a warranty has much more comprehensive coverage.
