Returns

What is your return policy for glasses and sunglasses?

We accept glasses and sunglasses returns within 30 days of the delivery date. Items must be returned in new and unworn condition, with their original complementary cases to be eligible for a full refund. If you purchased online and you're not satisfied with your new pair, please contact us via our toll-free number at 1-800-639-478 for help. Please note this is only applicable to online orders. If you purchased in store and you’re not satisfied with your new pair, please visit us in person at any of our Clearly locations, we'd love to help you. Please note we are unable to process returns for orders placed online at any of our retail locations. A small number of heavily discounted items may have moved to our Last Chance / Final Sale category, in which case they're ineligible for a refund, exchange, or store credit.

What is your return policy for contact lenses and accessories?

Contact lenses may be returned within 30 days of delivery. Boxes must be sealed, unopened, and unmarked.

RGP (rigid gas permeable) lenses are custom made for each individual order. As such, they are final sale and cannot be returned or exchanged.

Contact lens cases are final sale items and cannot be returned or exchanged.

How long does it take for a refund to get back to me?

We will process your refund within 4-7 business days of receiving your return at our warehouse. Please be mindful that depending on your bank's processing time, refunds may take a few extra days to be available in your account.

Please contact us via our toll-free number at 1-800-639-478 if you wish to return an item, and we'll email you a prepaid return label. Returning your purchase without using this label can lead to delays in processing your refund.

You'll be notified via email when your return has been processed and when the refund has been completed.

What should I do if I have a hard time seeing with my new glasses?

Having difficulty seeing clearly with your new glasses can be due to a variety of reasons. Start by asking yourself:

• Do the glasses fit you well? Sometimes, the prescription is not as crisp because the glasses aren't properly adjusted. Visit your nearest Clearly store for a free adjustment.

• Is it a new prescription? Adjusting to a new prescription can take a few days. It's best to wear your new glasses consistently to adjust to your new prescription, as taking them on and off makes it harder for your brain to adjust.

• Are your prescription and PD accurate? Use the packing slip included in your package to check that the prescription ordered matches the prescription from your doctor. If the prescription was wrongly entered, please contact us via our toll-free number at 1-800-639-478 to set up an exchange.

• Does your vision sharpen when you look up or down? Put your glasses on and look straight ahead. Lock your eyes on a point in the distance, then slowly tilt your chin up and down (without moving your eyes). If your vision sharpens when you look up or down, the position of the lenses in your frame may not be right for you. Please contact us via our toll-free number at 1-800-639-478 to let us help you with an exchange.

Warranty

What is covered under your warranty policy?

Our warranty covers manufacturer’s defects on frames and lenses within one year of the delivery date. It does not cover damage caused by the wear and tear of everyday use, sudden force or impact, accidental damage, including but not limited to: lens scratches, loose hinges, missing screws, broken frames, detached temple tips or detached nose pads.

Any cosmetic issues, such as scratches, paint chips or marks, are not covered by warranty unless they occur straight from the box and are reported within 14 days of delivery; after 14 days they will be classified as wear and tear and be ineligible for any return or warranty claim.

How do I make a warranty claim?

If you experience a manufacturing defect within 365 days of delivery, please contact us via our toll-free number at 1-800-639-478 to request a one-time replacement service. You'll receive further instructions on how to prepare and return your defective glasses or sunglasses after you start the warranty claim process.

As warranty claims are subject to review, our team will assess photos of your defective product. If your warranty claim is approved, we'll replace the product at no charge on a one-time basis.

What should I do if I need a new nose pad?

Most nose pads are easily replaceable by any local optical professional. Note that some of our Clearly frames may come with nose pads that are exclusive to Clearly; because they cannot be purchased separately, nose pad replacements may not be possible with select frames.
