As soon as you are no longer wearing your glasses, the best thing is to put them in a hard shell case. If you don't have a case, then always keep them in a safe location with the lens side up.

A good sunglasses lens protects the eyes against UV radiation, prevents bothersome glare, and maintains natural colour contrasts. 
Polarized lenses filter out bothersome light reflections and make relaxed, fatigue-free vision possible. Besides a great deal of visual comfort, this also gives you greater safety, for example when driving a car or in outdoor sports. 

Avoid very high temperatures. Neither lenses nor frames like to spend too much time in the sauna or on the dashboard of your car in the summer, as excessive heat will weaken the sunglass over time and resulting in breakage.

  • Glasses should be kept in their protective pouch when not being worn.
  • Clean the micro fibre pouch by washing it regularly.
  • Do not leave sunglasses out in direct heat such as on car seats or dashboards, as excessive heat will weaken the sunglass over time, resulting in breakage.
  • Never put your sunglasses face down.

Unfortunately not. Lenses are not just one pane of glass or plastic, rather a complex system of layers for anti-reflection, tinting and other additional functions. Therefore "polishing out" scratches doesn't work. 

Defected product needs to be returned to the store where the item was purchased together with your original proof of purchase. The store will assist in sending the item back to us.

  • A brief description of the issue or problem with the sunglass should be included.
  • Proof of purchase with date stamp to accompany the defected item. The store will forward this on to us as well.
  • Warranty claims are at the complete discretion of the manufacturer.
  • If the defected item is no longer available or has been discontinued, the item with be replaced with a similar item to the same value.

All our sunglasses are imported and arrive readymade. We unfortunately do not have a repair centre in South Africa and therefore do not carry any spare parts. 

Retail prices range between R450 – R650 depending on the frame.
