Proper Eyeware Care
It is inevitable that glasses will acquire dings and scratches over time with normal use. To make the glasses last as long as possible; check out the safe handling tips below:
- Avoid leaving the sunglasses in a hot vehicle or direct sunlight. High heat can damage the frame and lens coatings.
- Avoid contact with the lenses as much as possible. Our hands, even when they appear to be clean, are covered in oil and dirt particles.
- Proper cleaning is important with in contact with salt water, sand and sunscreen as these can be corrosive and harmful to your lenses. We recommend rinsing the sunglasses under clean water to remove anything from the frame and lenses. Saltwater is micro abrasive and if you try to clean the sunglasses before removing the saltwater it can damage the lenses.
- When not wearing the glasses keep them in a protective storage case. This is the easiest and most effective way to avoid scratches and keep the dust & dirt off.
- Avoid placing sunglasses on top of your head when not wearing them. The chemicals from shampoo, hair product etc. can be harmful for the lenses. Also, placing the glasses on your head may stretch the frame and cause the glasses to become misaligned.
Cleaning Your Glasses
Keeping your glasses clean is the best way to ensure their longevity.
When cleaning glasses there is a RIGHT and WRONG way.
Begin by rinsing the glasses under lukewarm tap water. This will remove grit, dust, dirt etc., which will avoid damage to the lens while cleaning them.
(*DO NOT USE HOT WATER! This will damage the lens coating*)
Next, apply a MILD dish soap to fingers and gently rub the lens, nose pads and frame.
(*Avoid dish soap with lotions and hand sanitizers. Avoid cleansers such as Windex which contain ammonia*)
Rinse glasses well and shake excess water off.
CAREFULLY dry lenses and frame. A clean microfiber cloth works best.
(*Avoid dirty towels, facial tissues or paper towels. All are harmful to lenses*)
Q: Can I purchase replacement parts for my glasses (lenses, nose pieces, extra arms, etc.?
A: We do not carry or sell any replacement parts for our glasses, including lenses, screws, nose pads etc. If there is an issue with your Peppers we would rather you have a brand new pair of sunglasses to help avoid issues repeating themselves in the future.
Q: How long does a warranty claim take?
A: Typically a warranty takes about 2 weeks to process, including shipping. If you do not receive your replacement within 3 weeks please check the email you provided to ensure Peppers did not try and contact you with an inquiry about your replacement. If no contact has been made, please contact us for assistance.
Q: How should I send in my glasses?
A: There is no need for special packaging as your glasses are already damaged – a small box or padded envelope is usually the best option. Please do not wrap your glasses in bubble wrap, packing peanuts, tissue paper etc. Please do not send back the cases/cleaning cloths your sunglasses may have come with. We recommend using a traceable method as Peppers is not responsible for items lost in the mail. USPS shipping cost for one pair of sunglasses averages around $4.
Q: Do I need to register my glasses?
A: No, we do not have a registration process for our warranty. Retain your receipt, and refer to our warranty policy should you ever need to send your sunglasses in.
