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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
For everyone’s safety, we’ve adopted protective measures to reduce the spread of Covid-19 in our store.
- All displayed sunglasses are sanitized before - and after each trial
- All our consultants sanitize their hands frequently
- We frequently sanitize all surfaces
But we also need your support:
- Please wait outside the store until an employee asks you inside. Only two customers can be in our store at a time.
- We invite everyone inside the store to wear a face mask and please keep at least 1.5 meter distance from others.

Counterfeiting is an illegal activity that not only affects companies and brands but can also cause serious damage to the health of consumers who buy products that do not comply with quality standards.
Luxottica has been working aggressively in its global fight against counterfeiting with dedicated teams worldwide.
With the growth of the Internet, we have seen a sharp increase in new counterfeiters exploiting websites, marketplaces and social media.
As the landscape changes, Luxottica is constantly improving and expanding its brand protection activities. In addition to constant online monitoring, we partner with local specialized institutions, including Customs and Law Enforcement Agencies, to intercept fake products at customs and tackle the entire illegal production chain.
In 2020 Luxottica has requested and obtained the takedown of over 297.000 listings offering counterfeit products on marketplaces, 72.210 profiles and post promoting counterfeits products or scam advertising on social media and closed over 2.600 website all over the word.
The growing popularity of social media has brought with it a new crop of counterfeiters and more evolved scam techniques. Counterfeiters are becoming more and more sophisticated and dangerous.
During our investigation we discovered that thousands of users on social media such Instagram and Facebook have been victim of an advanced scam that uses Ray-Ban to attract consumers and compromise their personal data.
Luxottica has no connection at all to these websites or activities and we strongly encourage users to be extra vigilant when sharing their personal information online.
Scammers can compromise users accounts, stealing their personal information and passwords. Very often, users are not aware that their accounts have been compromised and as a result, any website or platform where they use the same credentials are consequently at high risk.
Some websites such as haveibeenpwned.com allow users to check if their credentials might be part of a data breach. If your account has been hacked or if you suspect that your credentials have been stolen in the past, we strongly suggest that you change all your accounts and activate the two- factor authentication where available.
When it comes to social media, we highly recommend the following tips and advice below:
