The eyewear you have purchased is covered for a period of 1 year from the date of purchase. The warranty is only covering manufacturing defects; it does NOT cover inflicted damage and scratches. Should a manufacturer's defect occur within 12 months of the date of purchase and the frame cannot be repaired or replaced a credit will be issued. Defect NOT covered under warranty include, but are not limited to: (1) A general decline in appearance due to repeated wear. Eyeglass and sunglass frames are delicate and are subject to "wear and tear" when worn on a regular basis and are expected to appear less new over the course of 1 year. (2) Products that were damaged because the frame was twisted, scratched, or bent (no matter what the cause). (3) Frames that suffer damage due to neglect or improper cleaning (including, but not limited to, temple and nosepiece discoloration due to lack of regular hygienic frame cleaning). (4) Frames that suffer damage from excessive heat (such as being left in the car which results in warpage of the frame shape and cracking and peeling of the paint and surface coatings due to repeated thermal expansion).
