    We recommend you keep them in the original case when not in use. Vuarnet mineral lenses are scratch-resistant, but not scratch-proof. Keeping your glasses loose in your bag with items such as keys or nail files risks damaging them over time. Not only are scratches unsightly, but they also seriously affect your visual comfort.

    When you take your glasses off, do so with both hands. In this way you protect the frame hinges.

    When you put your glasses down, fold them up and put them with the arms in contact with the surface. Avoid putting your sunglasses face-down on the lenses, there's no better way to damage them.

    Once back from the beach, simply rinse them under tepid water to remove sand and salt traces.

    To clean your glasses at home, use a mild liquid soap. To rinse them, pass under cold or lukewarm water. Avoid using hot water at all costs. Dirty or abrasive cloths should also be avoided as they may modify the lens characteristics.

    You may also choose a glass cleaning spray, which you can easily find at your local optician. In this case, wipe them with the chamois cloth usually supplied with the original case. If you have lost it, use a very fine, soft fabric to wipe them.

    In some cases where you do not manage to clean your glasses properly as indicated above, you may wish to see your optician. Most opticians possess ultrasound equipment for cleaning glasses. It is suggested to let them soak in an ultrasound water bath: this will remove any impurities stuck to the frames. Most of the time, this service is provided free of charge by your optician.

    This may be done every 2 months for complete cleaning.

    Where can I get my glasses adjusted to my size after delivery?
    A qualified optician can make adjustments to your frame for a fee.

    The two-tone Vuarnet mirror glass: our signature since 1957. The two-tone mirror filters the light in the upper and lower part of the lens more efficiently, and therefore you have maximum protection against glare and reflections.

    The Vuarnet mirror flash lens: Other than the aesthetic aspect, the mirror flash lens reflects and filters light more efficiently. It guarantees you maximum comfort in very bright conditions.

    Vuarnet polarized lenses: bring optimum color definition and greater eye comfort against glare from reflections. All of our frames equipped with polarized mineral glass always carry the symbol “P”: Grey Polar, Blue Polar, Blue Polarlynx and Brown Polar are available.

    What test do you do to check product quality?

    More

    We perform detailed and complete testing procedures on both lenses and frames.

    Three tests are performed on the lens during the manufacturing process:

    • Inspection of the polished glass quality; individual check of the glass polishing.
    • Shock resistance measurement by ball-test; a ball weighing 16 grams is dropped from a height of 1.27 m onto the lens to test its shock resistance.
    • Inspection of treated lenses, under specific lighting conditions to ensure that the glass has no scratches/imperfections.


    Each frame is individually checked before the product is packaged.

    On each product leaflet, we indicate the temple width (distance between your temples) and the frame size (S for Small, M for Medium or L for Large) in order to help you select the pair of sunglasses most suited for your face.

    To figure out the temple width of your face, use a ruler to measure the distance between the two horizontal screws of the arms on your current glasses. (If you have a fine/angular/large round, we recommend the size small/medium/large).

    Size Small refers to a temporal distance of 5-5.2 inches (131-135 mm). Great for small and medium sized faces with square or oval shape

    Size Medium to 5.1-5.3 inches (136-140 mm). Great for small and medium sized faces with square or oval shape

    Size Large to 5.3-5.7 inches (141-146 mm). Great for large sized faces with round, square or oval shapes

    Size Extra-Large to 5.8 inches and more (+ 147 mm). Great for large sized faces with round, square or oval shapes
