Stock returned items are subject to a 25% restocking charge. The restocking charge can be avoided if an item of equal or greater value  (value of the returned item)  is purchased within 30 days of the return date. We reserve the right to limit the quantity and frequency of the return of items.

A refund (less less any shipping and handling costs) will be issued to your credit card after we receive your returned item. Returned items must be in salable condition. Returned items determined to have been “used” are not eligible for a refund. Damaged items such as safety glasses with scratched or broken lenses are not eligible for a refund.

Order Cancellations/Refusals/Failure to Accept Delivery/Non-Standard Returns

Orders cancelled, refused, failure to accept delivery, failure to retrieve package after delivery notice was given, non-payment of duty by the customer, invalid returns and other non-standard returns  will be subject to a 50% restocking charge. The restocking charge can be avoided if an item of equal or greater value  (value of the cancelled item)  is purchased within 30 days of the cancellation date. Orders designated as “Special” or “Custom” orders (including prescription glasses), are non-cancellable, non-returnable and non-refundable.

Prescription Glasses Return Policy

All prescription glasses are custom special orders and are therefore not cancellable (once production is started),  returnable, exchangeable or refundable.

Prescription Guarantee

We guarantee 100% accuracy* on all prescriptions or they will be remade at no charge. Prior to leaving our optical lab, all prescription eyeglasses undergo a stringent quality control hand inspection. The lenses are checked at four different stations for accuracy. We pride ourselves in our workmanship. Accurately filling your prescription is our number one priority. In the unlikely event that our quality control measures fail, we will promptly and courteously re-make the lenses. If we need to re-make the lenses, we will ask you to provide a copy of your recent (within 2 years) prescription to help us re-make your lenses.

Prescription Glasses Evaluation

If the customer questions the accuracy of the prescription glasses we have made, we will inspect the glasses at our repair facility. Customer must call us to receive a Return Authorization Number. Customer is responsible for the shipping charges to send the glasses to us for evaluation. If no prescription error is found, customer is responsible for all shipping charges to return the glasses.

Radiation Lens Replacement

If you are sending in glasses to have a broken glass radiation lens replaced, please do the following:

  • Contact us for a RMA repair number. No repair will be accepted without the RMA#
  • Package the glasses securely in bubble wrap or other cushioning material
  • Insure the glasses for the purchase price
  • Send the glasses to us at:
    Medical Safety Repair Center
    C/O Phillips RMA#
    123 Lincoln Blvd
    Middlesex, NJ  08846

Our frames are generally robust and most will accept the lens replacement without incident. However, we will not be responsible for any frame damage caused by the lens replacement process. We will return the damaged frame to you upon request.

Prescription and Laser Glasses Production Time

Please allow for production time of approximately 15 business days (no weekends or holidays) for most Prescription orders. This production time is Approximate and Not Guaranteed. We will make every reasonable effort to complete your glasses within the 15 business day period. Glasses with Progressive lenses, Bifocal Lenses, and selected options such as Lens Coatings and name engraving may take longer. Glasses are shipped via USPS and FedEx, and the delivery time will vary according to the service type and your location.

Frame Sizing

The frame dimensions listed on our site were accurate at the time they were measured. Changes in frame dimensions can occur due to manufacturing and environmental conditions, production lot changes, etc. Any size variation in the glasses will be small, and should not effect the overall fit of the glasses. We will not be held responsible for any variance in the actual frame dimensions compared to the published frame dimensions.

Products Damaged In Shipping:

If a product arrives at your delivery location damaged or broken, you must contact us within 2 business days of receipt of that product. No replacement product will be issued if we are not contacted within the 2 business day period. Please save the original shipping box and packaging. Return instructions will be given when you contact us.

Shipping and handling charges to return the unwanted item to us and to send the replacement item is the customer’s responsibility. If the returned items are the result of our error, we will refund the shipping and handling charges up to the amount of the original shipping charge.
