1. Can COVID-19 transmit through eyes?
Current research, which is still evolving, shows that the chance of spreading the virus through the eyes is possible, but rare. Studies found only a small amount of virus in tears of infected individuals. That said, in alignment with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), you should take all necessary precautions to avoid touching your eyes.
2. Do glasses help protect against COVID-19?
While glasses may potentially provide some protection from COVID-19, that protection is limited to the shielded area of the eye. The virus can still reach your eyes from the exposed sides, tops and bottoms of your glasses. In alignment with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), you should take all necessary precautions to avoid touching your eyes.
3. How should I clean my glasses in this period?
COVID-19 is thought to remain on some materials for hours or days. For this reason, it’s advisable to regularly clean your glasses. A standard hand soap or glasses cleaning spray that contains detergent should be effective at removing potentially harmful microbes. Using antibacterial products such as hand sanitizer or household cleaning spray to clean your glasses is not recommended. This is because they probably contain alcohol or chemicals that could damage the lens surface of your glasses.
4. What can I do about increased screen time straining my eyes?
There are many studies that associate prolonged computer use with eye strain and discomfort. Ocular surface dryness (due to infrequent blinking) can result in symptoms. To minimize this, you should follow the 20-20-20 rule: take a break every 20 minutes and look at an object 20 feet away for at least 20 seconds. You can also change your computer display brightness, increase font size and minimize glare with proper lighting.
5. What is the company doing in light of COVID-19?
We are determined to maintain the same level of confidence among our
customers. Today, our facilities around the world are up and
running, including our warehouses, labs and production plants in
U.S., Italy and China. We have decided to partially reduce our
production to implement strong health and safety protocols. Since
Luxottica always maintains good level of inventory, we will have you
covered. In terms of safety, our vertically integrated supply chain
allows us full visibility of the manufacturing and distribution
process. When our products leave our factory, they do so in the
safest, cleanest manner, packed and shipped by a carefully trained
staff member after undergoing extensive checks.
6. How are the glasses in your stores cleaned/sanitized?
Anti-bacterial wipes are used to clean each pair of sunglasses a
customer tries on before returning them to the shelf. It’s also
worth noting that when a customer purchases a pair of frames, they
are getting a completely new pair from our stock that has not been
tried on by other customers.
7. Where are your products made?
Our products are made in one of our Luxottica-owned plants in either
the U.S., Italy or China depending on the product. When our products
leave our factory, they are packed and shipped by a carefully
trained staff member after undergoing extensive checks.
8. Are your packages safe to open?
Yes. When our products leave our factory, they are packed and
shipped by a carefully trained staff member after undergoing
extensive checks. Furthermore, according the World Health
Organization, it is safe to open packages from China, Italy and
other countries where COVID-19 has been reported.
9. Are packages coming from China and other high-risk countries safe
Coronaviruses have poor resistance in the environment, so the
possibility that the virus is transmitted by goods that travel for
days or weeks at room temperatures is low. Current scientific
knowledge suggests that coronaviruses propagate only through
droplets of biological fluids
10. Should I expect delays in deliveries due to the COVID-19
Our courier service partners are using their logistics network to
minimize service impacts so we can continue to deliver the best
possible service to our customers.
11. Are your online deliveries safe?
When you buy online you avoid close contact with people who might be
sick. All our courier service partners have strict protocols in
place to ensure all precautionary measures are followed.
Depending on the courier, you may even request contactless delivery — in which couriers drop the package at your door or at a designated location with no personal interaction — to reduce the risk of person-to-person transmission for both you and the courier driver.

14. Why was my Remix custom text changed?
When designing your Remix sunglasses, you can use a combination of letters, spaces and numbers to

text you enter if rejected, your Remix glasses will be updated immediately on site with an
asterisk in order to show you how your glasses will be censored. The glasses will be printed
exactly as they appear on site with the * symbol in order to censor the phrase should you decide
to complete your order.
Examples of what will cause Remix to change your phrase are: profanity, inappropriate slang,
phrases used in order to encourage violence, content that violates another party's trademark or
intellectual property rights, and more.
