My sunglasses are broken; can I get a replacement part (lens, screw, temple, etc.)?
We do not offer repairs or replacement parts for our products. All Dioptics products offer a Limited Lifetime Warranty on defects in material and/or workmanship. Please see our Limited Warranty Policy for more information.

What is the best way to clean my lenses?
You should never clean your lenses with anything other than a microfiber cleaning cloth. These cloths are designed to remove contaminants without any damage to the lens. Some textiles, napkins and paper towels are far too abrasive to use, could cause more harm than good and may scratch your lenses. 

A dry microfiber cleaning cloth will normally polish your lenses without the need of any cleaning solution. However, if the lenses are extremely dirty, please use water or approved lens cleaning solution only. Do not use household cleaners, soaps or chemicals as this may permanently damage the lenses. Your cleaning cloth should be periodically rinsed clean.

Our Lens Repair & Cleaning Kit includes non-toxic, anti-fog spray cleaner, scratch-free, lint free cleaning cloth and a 4 in 1 eyewear repair tool. Our complete Lens Repair & Cleaning Kit and other accessories are available for purchase on our website.

What is the difference between the temporary sunglasses my doctor gave me and the sunglasses on DiopticsSunwear.com?
The post-op temporary pair of sunglasses you received from your doctor are made out of a polycarbonate plastic and provide 100% UVA/UVB protection. The sunglasses sold on www.diopticssunwear.com are made from a higher quality nylon frame material, offer polarized lenses to help reduce glare and block 100% UVA/UVB rays.

Do all your sunglass lenses block 100% UVA and UVB rays?
Yes, all Dioptics sunglasses feature lenses that deliver 100% UVA/UVB Protection. Not only do our sunglass lenses block 100% of UVA/UVB rays, but we understand that the sunglass frame itself is as important as the lenses and design our sunglasses to conform to our principals of Advanced UV Protection™. Our sunglass frames are designed to be close-fitting and wraparound your face to limit the amount of stray sunlight that reaches your eyes. Our sunglasses feature top, peripheral and underside protection in addition to lenses that block 100% of harmful UVA/UVB rays.

What is the difference between Polycarbonate & Polarized lenses?
Polycarbonate lenses are popular because they are lightweight, more impact-resistant than regular glass and plastic lenses and offer 100% UVA/UVB protection.

Polarized lenses help to reduce glare that can be irritating and harmful. Glare is generated by reflective surfaces and causes your eyes to squint or strain which can inhibit your vision, lead to eyestrain, fatigue, and headaches. All of our polarized lenses deliver 100% UVA/UVB protection and 100% polarization efficiency.

Read more about polarization and other features in the Dioptics Product Technology section of our website.

The sunglasses I ordered do not fit, how can I return them?
There is a return shipping label with instructions for returning items for a refund or exchange within your shipment. Refund is on merchandise only, excludes shipping and handling charges. If you do not have your return shipping label you may contact customer service for support.

If I have a 2-for-1 offer can I buy one style and get a different style for my free pair?
If you have enter a source code for a Buy One Get One Free sunglass offer and choose a style, the same style with a different lens/frame may automatically show up in your cart. If you would like to choose a different style for your free pair (must be the same brand) please call our Customer Service Department and they can help you customize your order.
