Costa Care & Repair: Limited Warranties and Care Programs

Terms

The most capable perform when it matters most. That’s why we craft durable eyewear to stand up to the harsh sun, unforgiving salt and rough conditions of a day at sea, and are willing to back it up. We offer a competitive Limited Warranty on all our eyewear as well as a separate Repair and Replacement Program to keep your product, and you, out on the water longer. 

Did you know? Simple tips can help keep your Costas, and you, in the game. We’ve compiled a list of care instructions to help you make them last.

Limited Warranties

For any sunglasses (non-prescription) purchased on or after November 3, 2022 that experience a manufacturing defect* in materials or workmanship within two (2) years from date of purchase, we will repair or replace them (with an identical or reasonably equivalent style at our option) at no cost to you. You will need a proof of purchase to submit a warranty claim for manufacturing defects.   

After two (2) years or for damage to your sunglasses not caused by a manufacturing defect*, we’re happy to service you with a separate Repair and Replacement Program. Please read more about our how it works here

This limited warranty is non-transferable and may only be exercised by the original purchaser, unless local law in your jurisdiction requires the transferability of this warranty.

This limited warranty gives you specific rights.  You may have other rights that vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. 

For any sunglasses purchased before November 3, 2022, please visit here or information on those limited warranties.

Your Costa Prescription Sunglasses and/or Prescription Eyeglasses also come with a built-in 2-year limited warranty. Since they are prescription, your authentic lenses and frames must be returned to your Eye Care Practitioner for warranty service. For frame-only warranty claims, please submit your claim through the Limited Warranty claim portal.

  • Manufacturing Defect: We warrant Costa Prescription (Rx) sunglass lenses and frames against defects in materials or workmanship for two (2) years from the date of purchase. Costa will repair or replace (with an identical or reasonably equivalent style), at our option, our prescription lenses and frames determined by Costa to have a manufacturing defect.**
  • Scratches: We warrant all Costa Prescription (Rx) sunglass and ophthalmic lenses against scratches for one (1) year from the date of purchase. Costa will replace scratched lenses one time and in the identical form (material, color, coatings and prescription) as originally purchased for both Rx sunglasses or eyeglasses.

You are responsible for any cost of shipment to your Eye Care Practitioner, and proof of purchase is required. For additional limited warranty information, please contact us.

This limited warranty is non-transferable and may only be exercised by the original purchaser, unless local law in your jurisdiction requires the transferability of this warranty.

This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights which vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction.

Costa Repair & Replacement Program (Non-Rx Lenses)

When opportunity calls, we’re ready to see what the water has to offer. We go further, make ‘one more cast’—and sometimes—break gear. Don’t worry, we’ve got your back. In the event your Costas fall to the rigors of life that are not covered under our Limited Warranty, we have options to help get you back out there.  We offer parts and/or a repair for as many products as we can, but to the extent parts or repair is not possible, we will offer you a discount on a replacement pair (identical or reasonably equivalent style at our option).

You have the option to purchase parts and repair your Costas yourself, so long as parts are available. Please refer to the aftersales portal for pricing on parts.

You may also submit your Costas for professional repair in the aftersales portal. A professional repair with shipping and handling included is $18 USD, plus the cost of the parts.

Due to the nature of the material, glass lenses may be difficult to insert, and we recommend a professional repair to protect your product quality. Select Costa authorized dealers and LensCrafters® locations may also be able to assist you with a repair. Please inquire with your dealer for availability.

If parts or a repair is not possible for your current pair, a replacement pair discount will be offered.

Reducing Our Impact

We recognize that every pair of sunglasses we make has an environmental and social footprint. By repairing frames and lenses, we strive to keep our products on the water as long as possible, reducing our collective impact and keeping you in the game.

*Costa Del Mar, Inc. has sole discretion to determine whether damage is caused by a Manufacturing Defect (defect in materials or workmanship), or “Out of Warranty Damage” (which includes but is not limited to normal wear and tear, scratched lenses, broken hinges, accidental damages or misuse).

**Costa's Prescription (Rx) Warranty does not cover third-party lenses, normal wear and tear, broken hinges, scratched lenses (after one year from date of purchase), accidental damage, misuse or any other problems determined by Costa not to be defects in materials or workmanship ("Out of Warranty Damage").
