What is the Lavunett warranty?
Your eyeglasses are guaranteed 1 year, parts and labor, with the replacement of the model to the identical or equivalent depending on the available stocks.
Good to know: This guarantee does not cover: breakage, theft, deliberate damage, abnormal wear and scratches on lenses.
How do I know if a frame fits me?
A few rules of thumb:
- Your pupils should be near the center of the lens.
- Lenses shouldn’t extend past the side of your face.
- Eyebrows should not be inside the glasses.
- When you smile, your cheeks don’t push the frames up.
- Frames shouldn’t slide down your nose.
- Above all, pick what makes you look and feel good!
If you find a frame you love but it doesn’t fit quite right, we can adjust the below issues:
- If the frames are too tight or loose behind your ears
- The temples are too long or too short
- The temples are too tight or loose at the side of your face
- The frames are crooked or slide down your face
Most optical shops will make minor adjustments for free or a small fee. If you decide to have your frames adjusted be sure to tell the technician to use low heat and light pressure on your glasses. Too much heat may cause bubbles, cloudiness, or even cracks to appear. Nobody wants that!
Where can I find my frame’s measurements?
All of our frames (and most glasses from other brands) have a few numbers printed on the inside of the temple arm. These refer to the lens width, bridge width, and temple arm length of your frames. On each product page, the frame measurements are listed as three numbers under measurements. We recommend comparing the measurements of your current glasses to the frame measurements on our website; this will give you an idea for how a pair will fit you.
What’s a nose bridge? How do I know if I should select frames described as Medium Fit or Narrow Fit?
Nose bridge refers to the slope of the nose in between the eyes. A low nose bridge is where the bridge of your nose sits level with or below the pupils. People with low nose bridges often have wide faces and/or high cheekbones. Narrow Fit frames minimize any pinching and prevent frames from sliding down your nose or resting on your cheeks.
(Medium Fit frames will be a better fit for those who don’t have the above features.)
If you’re having trouble picking a pair or want a second opinion, our CEO (not a joke) or personal stylist are always happy to help. Chat Monday–Friday, 9 a.m.– 9 p.m. ET, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
I don’t think I have a low nose bridge, but I found a Narrow Fit frame I love. Will that work?
If you find a Narrow Fit frame that is comfortable on you, by all means, go for it! Some customers who don’t have low nose bridges (when the bridge of your nose sits level with or below the pupils), wide faces, and/or high cheekbones have found the Narrow Fit frames uncomfortable after a few hours.
If you experience any irritation later, let us know. We offer a 30-day, hassle-free return or exchange policy—we’re happy to set you up with a full refund or exchange within 30 days of receipt.
How do I get my frames adjusted?
Most optical shops will make adjustments for free or a small fee. Be sure to tell the technician to use low heat and light pressure on your glasses. Too much heat may cause bubbles, cloudiness, or even cracks to appear.
O.K. I still need some help. Could I get some one-on-one assistance?
Absolutely! Our customer experience team are here to help you find a great fit every day, 9 a.m.–9 p.m. ET. Email email@example.com. It’s easy and free.
Find your fit
This is the approximate width of a Standard Size lens.
Stand in front of the mirror
In front of a mirror or a webcam, at the centre of your nose. place one edge of the credit card Where does the other edge end?
A If the edge of the credit card ends at the end of the eye; Medium Size is the correct fit for you
B If it extends well beyond the end of the eye, you need the Narrow Size
C If, instead, the credit card does not reach the end of the eye, you should go for a Wide Size.
What’s the best way to clean my lenses?
You can rinse your lenses with a mild dish soap and lukewarm water, and dry them with a soft cloth. For day-to-day cleaning of light smudges, a few swipes of the lens cloth included in your case should do the trick. Please be careful to avoid using hot water on your lenses, as they can develop bubbles or cracks when exposed to high heat.

How does your Home Try-on offer work?
It’s simple. We believe that you should try on the glasses before you purchase them. And we believe that you can do that at home, with our Home Try-On offer. You can order 4 frames 4 free and keep them at home for 4 days.
1. Select 4 of your favorite frames and add them to your try at the home box by clicking the „HOME TRY-ON“ button.
2. You will receive the box within approximately 7 business days. Now you have 4 days to try on your selection and show them to your friends and family and decide which one(s) you like best.
3. You can now order your glasses online on lavunett.com and then just fill out the shipping receipt that came with the box. 4. Put your glasses in the pack and send us back by simply using the prepaid label we included. Paste such a label on the old one.
How long can I keep the glasses?
You can keep the box with your favourite glasses you would like to try for four (4) full days after reception.
I thought the Home Try-On program was free - why do you need my credit card?
The Home Try-On program is free! During the checkout process, you will be asked to provide a valid credit or debit card before completing your order. We require your credit or debit card information for security purposes, but rest assured that the Home Try-On program is a totally free four-day trial. (Prepaid cards cannot be used to place Home Try-On orders.)
The only exception: if you do not return your Home Try-On, or if returned frames are damaged, we will need to charge the card on file the full price for each outstanding or damaged pair, depending on frame material.
In order to avoid this charge, your Home Try-On will need to be postmarked—it’s on its way back to Lavunett—by the fourth full day after delivery. (We’ll send you an email reminder so you don’t forget.) If your Home Try-On period ends on a weekend or holiday, just drop it in the mail on the next available day. If you need an extra day or two, call us and we’ll work something out.
I ordered another Home Try-On. Why is it delayed?
We send Home Try-On orders one at a time. If you are already trying on a few frames with an existing Home Try-On, we’ll ship your new box of frames once we receive your current order.
Are the frames that are shipped in my Home Try-On thoroughly cleaned and safe for me to wear?
Yes! We are in close contact with our supply chain partners to ensure that sanitization best practices are in place—you can rest assured that 100% of our Home Try-On frames are thoroughly cleaned and should not cause any risk of transmission.

How should I read my prescription ?
There are different ways to write an order, but the rules are simple and common.
First, we distinguish the two eyes:
OD = Right eye
OG = Left eye
Then we add one to three values per eye: the sphere, the cylinder and the axis.
Sphere = positive or negative number, never in brackets. The mentioned Plan means 0.
Cylinder = positive or negative number, always in brackets.
Axis = number always accompanied by the degree sign "°".
Plane = the value of the sphere is 0.
It is possible that there are only one or two values written per eye, for example: "OD = +1.75"
This means that the other two values are equal to 0.
If you have any doubts, questions, or need more explanations, do not hesitate to email us on email@example.com. We will be happy to help and advise you.
Note: If you have the mention Addition or Add, it means that you need progressive lenses. We do not provide progressive lenses online at the moment.
I don't have a prescription but I know my corrections, can you make me glasses for my eyesight?
Yes, we can make your lenses directly from your corrections. In fact, they will have the same qualities Eyeglasses as lenses made with a prescription.
Can you make me a new prescription?
No, only ophthalmologists and optometrists are authorized to issue a prescription.
What is the pupillary distance?
This is the measurement between the center of your two pupils.
To center your lenses, we measure the half pupil distances that correspond to the distance between the center of your nose and the center of your pupils. This distance is usually between 20 and 40mm.
What is the purpose of measuring pupillary distance?
The pupillary distance allows you to center your corrective lenses in relation to the center of your pupils. This measure is important because it guarantees optimal viewing comfort.
Opticians always take a measurement from my eyes. What is it about?
This is the pupillary distance and there are different simple methods to obtain it.
