How to Replace Lenses for Ray Ban Glasses

Updated February 21, 2017

Ray-Bans refer to a designer of sunglasses that prides itself with holding a unique and prominent place in American history. While the company created the first sunglasses for the U.S. Air Force, and was the catalyst for the coining of the phrase "aviator shades," celebrities from Marilyn Monroe to Audrey Hepburn to Madonna have all donned these shades. They're a solid investment in fashion and eyewear protection. If you need new lenses because yours have become scratched or broken, you can always get the lenses replaced rather than shelling out money for a brand new pair.

Cut a piece of bubble wrap at least 12 inches long and 10 inches wide. Place your sunglasses at the end of one side of the bubble wrap and roll the bubble wrap around the sunglasses as if you were rolling up a sleeping bag.

Cut a small piece of clear tape and secure the tape over the loose end of the bubble wrap. Place the wrapped-up sunglasses in a small box or envelope. The box or envelope should be snug enough so that the sunglasses don't rattle or bounce around in there.

Write a brief note explaining that you need new lenses and describe the damage your sunglasses have endured. Include the model number just in case. Attach your proof of purchase, such as your receipt. Add your contact information including your name, e-mail and phone number.

Place your note inside the envelope or box and write a check for £8.10 made out to "Luxottica." Seal it properly with packing tape. Address the outside of the box or envelope to "Luxottica Consumer Warranty/ P.O. Box 3070/ McDonough, GA 30253"

Take the package to the Post Office and insure it for at least the price you paid for the sunglasses plus £8.10.
