1. Designer Glasses Boutique offers a reglazing service, which allows you to keep your existing glasses but have them fitted with new prescription lenses. Every effort will be taken to ensure that your glasses are returned to you in a satisfactory condition but reglazing can entail some risk to the frames, as the quality and condition cannot be guaranteed prior to reglazing. Should the frame be deemed unfit for reglazing, Designer Glasses Boutique will contact you and any payment will be refunded.
2. Due to the delicate nature of the reglazing process, Designer Glasses Boutique cannot guarantee to return original lenses if broken or damaged during production.
3. In the unlikely event any damage is caused during reglazing Designer Glasses Boutique cannot be held responsible. Designer Glasses Boutique will not accept liability in the unlikely event that a customer's own frame is damaged during the glazing process or is lost in the post. Sending a frame for reglaze, is at the customers own risk.
