Most of our Costas are hand assembled in USA, because we have yet to find a machine that does the job as well as a real, live person. We receive parts for our sunglasses from all around the world.
Costas assembled in USA are examined by no fewer than eight pairs of eyes before they ever shield yours. It's the only way we know how to keep the high standards we need to confidently back every pair of Costas with a limited warranty. See our Manufacturers Warranty landing page for limited warranty details and limitations.
Click here to answer three easy questions, and we can help you find the perfect pair of sunglasses. If you still need help choosing your perfect sunglasses please contact us. We'd love to help you choose the best fit and the right style.
One size doesn't always fit all. That's why we’re continually innovating new sunglass frame styles. On our website, each sunglass style is labeled as either narrow, regular, or wide fit. Regular fit is our most common. When shopping online, you can choose to filter sunglasses by fit to see which frame options might be best for you. Specific sunglass measurements are available under the “Sunglass Specs” tab on each sunglass detail page. If for any reason the fit just doesn’t work out for you once you’ve received your sunglasses, you can return them!

A lens cleaning solution and our premium microfiber cleaning cloth are your best bets for keeping your Costas in top shape. Keep them in their protective case, away from extreme temperatures (translation: don't leave them on the dash of your car). Regular tightening of your hinge screws will also help maintain your frame. Follow these guidelines and your Costas will help you see what's out there for years to come.
Yes, most Costa frames can be outfitted with prescription lenses. Check out the details on your preferred Costa frame’s website page on Costa Del Mar to see if it is prescription ready.
We offer a wide range of sunglasses with prescription lenses. However, prescription is not available on all items we sell online. If the item is available in prescription you will see a button on the product page which says SELECT LENSES. To shop all of our prescription sunglasses you can also navigate to this page which includes our widest range of sun prescription. We offer single vision and progressive in our sunglasses.
To be able to process your prescription order we require valid, non-expired prescription and may need pupillary distance measurement (often referred to as PD). You will be able to choose between three options:
- Enter it manually: enter your prescription details manually
- Upload it now: scan or take a picture of your prescription and upload it in digital format
- Send it later
PD not on your prescription slip? Don’t worry, you can measure it at home. Learn how.
