Bought some $250 RB3460M SCUDERIA FERRARI's straight from Ray Ban's website with free two day shipping from Shoprunner. 8 days later, I received them. The package was well wrapped, and everything looked great until I got the glasses out only to find a lens had popped off, the nose piece was slightly bent, and one of the lens had a tiny scratch on it. These folks actually sold me a pair of USED Ray Bans for retail. After 15-20 min on hold for CS they told me I would eventually get a return label emailed to me. Sending them back and never buying Ray Ban brand again. Getting used glasses directly from Ray Ban is totally unacceptable and I can never trust them or the brand again. The whole experience from the beginning to end was a disaster.
RayBan hacked my DEAD brother's Facebook page and sent advertising to me and NINE of my relatives. It is quite shocking to get text saying my DEAD brother sent me a photo. SHAME ON RAYBAN! THEY ARE HEARTLESS AND DISGUSTING.
I see all negative reviews, so I will add my positive one. The film on the inside of my Oakley glasses started to peel or become worn. I took the required pictures on the website, filled out the claim form and 2 days later I was sent an email that they would cover the cost of warranty. While the site say it takes 2 weeks for them to processes a repair. I was sent my glasses back in the mail in 3 weeks. They didn't repair mine, but sent me a brand new pair of the same model. While they did take the extra week, it saved me $150 from purchasing a new pair.
I have a pair of Wayfarer Ray-Bans. The lens fell out and broke. I was approved via email to get replacement lens for $45. However, I have to call the 1800 number first to pay them over the phone, then I can mail them in. No problem right? NO! I’ve called 4 times and have YET to get a human to talk to. When I chose the callback option due to “high call volume”, I get hung up on as soon as they call me back. Or if I chose to hold, I’ll hold for 50+ minutes before hanging up. I cannot understand why I can’t just pay online, like Costa lets you, and then send them in! Never order Ray-Ban again.
The gel nose pad on my OAKLEY prescription glasses became displaced and was subsequently lost. When I contacted the store I bought them from, they told me to contact Oakley. Oakley advised me to send the glasses to their repair shop. I sent the glasses to Luxottica Warranty and Repair Service Center McDonough GA 30253. They were returned WITHOUT PRESCRIPTION LENSES! WTF?

This company is a complete joke. I have been a loyal Ray-Ban customer for many years and will NEVER buy Ray-Bans again. I recently ordered replacement lenses after my aviator lens cracked. I ordered them over the phone (since the company is so antiquated that you can't order them online) and was told to wait 2 weeks because they "are being shipped from Italy." Over 2 weeks later, still no delivery. Of course, the company doesn't offer tracking (their excuse is that since they are shipped internationally you can't get a tracking number... again, what a joke!).
I called customer service and they claimed they had been delivered. I asked when they had been delivered and they said the day after I ordered them. When I pushed back and asked what happened to the 2-week lead time to be shipped from Italy, they fessed up and said that the shipment never went out. The customer service rep. then said she would place a replacement order and that again, it would take 2 weeks to be "shipped from Italy." I have not received a confirmation email for the order. We shall see if they are actually delivered this time. It is ASTOUNDING that a "luxury" company treats its customers like this. I will never ever purchase any products from this company again! If I could give them zero stars, I would!
My first review to BBB as company didnt honor 15 day return policy for my wife. Business agreed store didn’t act in good intentions based on overall customer service experience provided. Last week, shortly after having my initial issue finally resolved their corporate sent my wife and I a certified a letter saying we can never be allowed to go to any of their locations ever again? Please reference previous compliant I.d ID ** made to BBB. Upon filing original claim ID referencing the massive embarrassment Lens Crafters store put my wife and I through, they delivered an exchange two months later. (Please see below correspondence Lens Crafters initiated towards first complaint made with BBB) Lens Crafters made me believe they were sincerely apologetic and took ownership over complaint, they even urged me to give them another chance by providing an open invitation to visit their stores.
Sure enough my glasses purchased in December were cracked, I went to their NJ East Hanover store for an exchange. I waited an hour only to have a manager inform me I can’t be serviced and that I will be receiving further correspondence from corporate... (how can a business retaliate for providing feedback to BBB like this). A few days later I received a cease and desist letter stating I’m no longer allowed to do business with any of their stores or online to include all brands associated with Luxottica???
Adding insult to injury my wife who was already humiliated during the first ordeal was also effectively blacklisted in a similar fashion? I called Lens Crafters and spoke to their HQ (same number below) and was told this was not the case. Three days after speaking with Lens Crafters HQ a UPS urgent package came referencing the same letter addressed to my wife and I? It’s inconceivable to have a company this awful and rotten be allowed to operate in our great nation.
I took liberty of looking at other customer reviews through ConsumerAffairs, no surprise out of 369 reviews company received a one star rating. (please see below) https://www.consumeraffairs.com/eyeglasses/lenscrafters.html. End result I paid for insurance which was not honored by Lens Crafters and Luxottica being their parent company based on a one year assurance. I also wasted close to two hours to try to file claim and replace glasses at their store only to be kicked out and be humiliated once again?
Gold rim discontinued Ray bans. I only owned the 200$ glasses for about two years and barely wore them. Well the lens just fell out one day riding my motorcycle. I sent them in and I couldn't find my tracking info. Well they said I was sol. After I found my tracking info they came back the next day with, "It's not a defect!!!" Well what do you call a pair of 200 dollar glasses just falling apart (ungluing).
I was surprised when I went on here to offer review, and - well, guess it doesn't matter because everyone gave them a 1 star. Persol (first pair I've gotten) 2747 S version - and they never fit right and seemed to just be awkward on face. One day the top rim over the lens just broke, and lens fell out. Lucky I caught it. Sent pictures, explanation, etc. and only wanted that cheap frame. I'll put old lenses in. Their COGS must be like $20 on that... but nope, they said they would repair for $179 - GMAFB. Never again, wouldn't buy these. Just super cheaply made (I don't care if Italians made them, I'm Italian and embarrassed for them). Moving on to another supplier.
Bought a new pair of Ray Ban Aviator sunglasses on Ebay several years ago. The paint is coming off the metal frames in several places. Product is out of very limited warranty. For expensive glasses, the product is a joke.
Purchased a pair of Ray-ban sunglasses online and completed the transactions successfully. But I am not getting any confirmation email nor status of shipments thereafter. I cannot login using my valid email address. Called customer support line and she tells me they are moving the warehouse and having technical problem with order status and confirmation emails and promised send me confirmation email shortly. Never got this either. Received the glasses few days later and it was too small and trying to return now. Still cannot find my order online where online instruction is telling me to print the return label form and called customer support again and this time, it's telling me to call back because none of the customer support is available. What's happening here?
I did file a warranty claim for my Rayban sunglasses cause the lenses start to peel. Luxottica did approve the claim. Unfortunately because my sunglasses were discontinued; Luxottica offer me a comparable/exchange of the same brand at the retail value of my original eyewear. Until here everything looks great and make sense. Well when it is too good to be true...
The model of the Rayban that I choose is not in their inventory according to Luxottica. It’s been a month that I am waiting and always when I called it is the same response: “Sorry your glasses are on back order!!!” Luxottica don’t have any access to its inventory so why they have a warranty on a product if they cannot order another one or even know when it will be available. I did emailed them. Also calling many times but always the same response!!! By the way they requested my damage glasses to be sent first before sending new one. My glasses were received by Luxottica. What a shame for a company such as Luxottica that is known worldwide dealing with customers like that!!!
Bought RayBan semi rim eyeglasses RB8412 in end of November 2017 paid over 210 eu. After 15 days frame on right side over the lens split itself in half. Contacted RB site. They told me to ask for warranty with my retailer. Did that. They sent frame to Luxottica (and then we exchanged few emails) which claimed that everything is perfectly normal with frame and that it requires ''working space''. When I asked them why does it only need working space on 1 half of frame I was left unanswered. Warranty declined.
Looked over several same frames in Serbia where I am from and they all have more or less defect on right side of frame above lens. Now I am looking at same frames in Germany and none of over 10 I am holding in hand has same defect. Definitely company whose products you should avoid in wide range considering they are obviously having same prices and different quality depending on market. Finally the store itself agreed to purchase me new frame and I have to wait for it 6 weeks, I truly hope that it will be of same low end quality with same faulty defect that I can then use for further legal affairs. IF POSSIBLE AVOID. IF NOT GO BLIND!
I ordered a pair of glasses for a Christmas gift a week before Christmas because it was estimated to be DELIVERED on the 12/19. When didn’t show up and I didn’t get an email I called them and they said we never processed the order until Monday and I was promised that the order would ship out on the 19th for delivery on the 20th, and if not it would ship out on the 20th for delivery on the 21st. Still have not received my order. I call them and they tell me they might be able to ship it within the next 24 hours so I demanded that they cancel the order, they refuse and tell me it’s too far along in the processing! (but you just told me it never left the warehouse and still waiting to be picked) Rip off company. Better luck with Amazon.
I bought a new pair on sunglasses during a sale. The pair I received was damaged on one side, so I called the company asking for an exchange. I actually really disliked the lens color as it was too light (polarized), so I asked if they could give me sunglasses with the darker polarized lenses (same price as the ones I had ordered before). They would not do it, said I had to get a refund and make a completely different order (no more sale for the same glasses at this time). I decided to buy from Sunglass Hut instead because they gave me a student discount and the price ended up being the same. If Luxottica group had simply taken back the defective glasses and sent me the same ones, but with different colored lenses I would have given them my money. They wanted to make things difficult, so I ordered from a different company. Not a good way to keep customers Luxottica!
SCAM!!! Luxottica, I bought a pair of RayBan's. Sent them in for repair under warranty. They won't. $75.00 to repair them. Luxottica is a rip off. Don't buy anything from them... They will Rip you off.
The temple on my Oakley sunglasses broke. After many attempts to file a claim and actually make contact with someone at Luxottica I was told that my frames were discontinued (naturally) and the best they could do for me was sell me new ones at a discount. I chose to use framemender.com instead. They were great. I sent them my glasses and in less than a week I had them back. The repair has a lifetime guarantee and the cost was $50.00 instead of $300.00. Stay away from all Luxottica products if you possibly can.
My son purchased a pair of RayBan for me for Christmas. I had a problem with the nose guard and ear guard falling off and found Luxottica's website for warranty information. It stated that I should go to the retailer where they were purchased. I did that and was told that they did not handle anything regarding repairs or warranty and that I should just buy a new pair. Seriously, when you spent $200 on a pair of sunglasses, why would I expect to take advantage of the warranty? I then went to the website and called and was told to do a claim on their website. I did that. I got no response as far as a confirmation so I called a few days later. I was then told the website did not work and to email the same information. I did that, still nothing. I then got an email stating that I needed to fill out a warranty claim form that was attached and to send in pictures (3rd time). I did that, still no response.
I called and was told they had no information from any of my contact. They finally located it and said no parts were available and to once again send information to that agent. Oh my Lord! She then told me on the phone they would be sending me a new pair since they could not repair once I sent her the requested information AGAIN. Last response was that she would send to a technician and a new pair would be waiting for me once I got back from vacation. I have been back from vacation for 10 days now and called again. This agent told me that nobody told me I would get a new pair and "did I have documentation?". No, guess I should have recorded the call. He said the technician denied my repairs yet could not provide any details, and they had sent me a PayPal invoice to order parts (the ones I was told did not exist). I never received a PayPal communication.
I asked for a supervisor to review my call I had with the agent Marbella. I am sure I will never hear back, never get my glasses fixed but can absolutely guarantee I will not purchase any glasses that have any connection with Luxottica. At the least, when you purchase a product, the company should stand behind them and make some sort of minimal attempt to ensure the consumer has a pleasant experience and repair their product they boast to warranty.
I had a similar terrible experience as described by other reviewers: June 2017 sent Prada sunglasses in, paid $30 via PayPal - 9/6/17 received broken glasses with a lens floating around, I guess this is a DIY establishment. RIDICULOUS company - these people are so pathetic, they would have to work really hard to be as unprofessional and fraudulent as they are.
I placed an order in June of 2017 and was promised a delivery date of two weeks. When the lenses never arrived, I had to call and email to receive a response, in which they said they were back ordered and would be two more weeks. By the end of August when I still had not received the lenses or any sort of communication from their company, I had to email multiple times (with no response) and finally managed to get a rep on the phone who confirmed they had placed the order wrong, and put the wrong home address (not my problem). Now they claim they cannot expedite or provide any make-good, and I'm back at square one hoping the order was placed and will arrive in two more weeks. Furthermore their representative was lackadaisical. DO NOT recommend ever doing business with this company, and have reached out to Tiffany & Co. (the makers of my glasses who recommended them for lens replacement) to let them know of this experience.
I am writing in regards to the awful way Ray-Ban have handled my faulty order and the lack of effort to correct plus bad communication with me. Placed an order for glasses on the 21/06. I received my order on the 26/06. I opened the glasses out of the box, one of the lenses was sticking out of the frame. Would also click in and out of place making a noise. A lack of quality control. Following day I called their warranty helpline and explained the faulty glasses. A man advised to send them back and they would issue a replacement straight away. The next day I shipped the glasses back to Ray-Ban, just to confirm, I rang their helpline again to check how long it would be until I received my replacement, the man advised 7 days.
7 days later I still had not received my replacement, so I called up the helpline again and was advised the faulty glasses had been received and that I would have the replacement by 10 days, not 7. I waited a further 10 days and the glasses still had not arrived, so AGAIN, I called helpline, this time I was advised that it was 14 days for a replacement to arrive and not 10. I mentioned that I had been told a variety of stories and I was getting upset, the female adviser said that if the glasses were not here by 14 days, to give them a call and I would get a goodwill gesture like a free case.
14 days, still no glasses, called up again, this time started getting names. I spoke to a girl named Jenny, Jenny only now on my 4th call started an investigation. After a couple more days I received an email advising replacement would arrive 24/07. I emailed Jenny to ask why the delay and how I would go about the free case, no reply. Replacement arrived 24/07. I rang Ray-Ban and spoke to Beth to make a complaint, she said a manager would contact me the next day to explain and assist. No manager called and still no reply email. Ray-Ban have not only taken a month to get my order to me, but also made it impossible for me to make a complaint!
I purchased Tailback Sunglasses this year at Lenscrafters in Kingston, Massachusetts. The noseguard (small plastic piece attached to the frame) fell off so I inquired through Lenscrafters about replacing the part. Lenscrafters said that it was very difficult to get replacement parts through Luxottica. I could not understand this because a noseguard is such a simple part - and should be very easy to replace. Lenscrafters suggested that I contact Luxottica myself and provided me with a customer service number. I got a major run around and finally emailed Luxottica's customer care. Customer care is a total misnomer for this company.
I've had several chains of email and then finally one that arrived today to say that the warranty does not cover noseguards!!! I would like a full refund for these glasses because I cannot use them with a missing noseguard. I would appreciate advice on how to get a refund. I will never purchase Oakley glasses again, nor will I do any business with Luxottica Group/RayBan. They epitomize poor customer service.
Absolute worst customer service I have ever experienced in my life. I'm appalled so many reputable companies go through them for their parts. I ordered new lenses for my ray bans in the beginning of June and after a month waiting for my lenses, I called Luxottica again to see where they were and the woman said she couldn't tell me where my lenses were but that she would have to re-order them and I'd have to wait again. When I asked to speak to a supervisor, she said she'd have one call me in the next 24-48 hours. I never got a call… so I called again and once again the lady said she'd have a supervisor call me in 24-48 hours... guess what? NO CALL. Then my lenses arrive and they are the WRONG lenses. So I call again and all the woman says to me is she'll have a supervisor call me in 24-48 hours. And guess what? That's right, no phone call. Luxottica you are the worst business. Thanks for nothing.
I am highly disappointed by sunglasshut.com and will advise anyone looking to buy sunglasses not to buy from here. These people do not care about customer's money. I had worst experience during my transaction with sunglasshut.com. I made a purchase of sunglass at website worth 400+$ using 4 gift cards and credit card. Now, when I did not like the product and returned, I was told (multiple times) that I would be paid back the same way I used during transaction. To my surprise, sunglasshut turned all the amount from 4 gift cards into one gift card.
When I requested them multiple times to give it in multiple cards as I used to pay, I was given a clear NO. I was thinking to use small amount gift-cards as gifts to my friends or siblings but now I am stuck with one big 400$ gift card, which I do not have intention to use. Moreover, one can't use this gift card to buy another gift card. They do not seem to understand customer's point. I simply requested them to pay me the same way, I used to do the transaction. Nothing more and nothing less. But now I have made my mind to never visit this cheap website and advise anyone reading this that there are multiple options available better than this website. I read lot of bad reviews earlier too but I ignored and thought it's all exaggerated and now, I, myself has become a victim.
I bought a RayBan Polarized Sunglasses from the City Centre2, Rajarat, Major Arterial Road, Action Area IID, New Town, Kolkata, West Bengal 700159 on 23/08/2015. Now polarized coating fully damaged. I can't use the sunglasses. I request you to look into the matter. Thank you.
I literally have never had a bigger headache ordering something in my life! I called to order a pair of replacement lenses for my Ray-Ban Aviator RB3025. I ordered the blue flash lenses and waited the 14 business days without any tracking number. It was explained to me that you could not receive a tracking number since your item is being shipped from Italy! (In the midst of all this I also ordered a new pair of aviators from Ray-Ban which did come with a tracking number and also came from Italy! So it wasn't true what they told me.)
Needless to say my order from Luxottica never arrived so I called back and after about a week of going back-and-forth over the phone and email I finally got a second pair ordered at no additional cost only to receive the wrong color today! So when I called back once again, I get the runaround that I have to wait for a supervisor to call me back between 24 to 48 hours. The gentleman on the phone, Marcus, would not even take my original order number just the second one which clearly they ordered the wrong lenses the second time around and I believe he can only see that by taking my original order number!!
This is such a huge company and almost every major eyewear company uses them for their warranty and spare parts and it gave me such a bad taste in my mouth! I just decided to turn around and pay an extra $10 and order them from Amazon and I will have them in the next two days with a tracking number!!! I strongly advise against using this company and would pay the extra few dollars going with Amazon if it's possible for what you need. I wish I would have came to this website first and read all of the reviews because every last one of them I have found to be true. Don't waste your time with Luxottica. Their customer service is absolutely awful.
First of all I'm reviewing my experience because I saw a lot of bad reviews about this company, so I have to tell my story. The only problem I had was every time I called I had to wait almost an hour for someone to answer, but as soon as an assistant picks up the phone, they are polite and super professional. I had a pair of Prada sunglasses which I bought a year ago or so, one of the metal studs fell off and they were horrible because it was right above the eye, so I made a complaint through the portal, uploaded the photos and the next day I received an email saying that they were covered by warranty and that I could choose another model free of charge.
The first two models I chose weren't available and I ended up getting the most expensive sunglasses they had. The experience was already good because I was getting a new pair of sunglasses. The problem was that I was going to move to a new country and I had less than 5 days to send the damaged pair and receive the new one. I paid $20 so that my damaged pair of sunglasses were received the next day and called the company asking if they could send it fast. After 2 days I got my new pair of sunglasses. The process took not even a week! I'm very pleased and couldn't be happier with the customer service!!!
My brand new Ray Ban sunglasses snapped. After jumping through all of the hoops required to have them repaired under the warranty (designed, it seems, to try to keep people from even bothering), I finally sent them in. I got an email saying it would cost me almost $40. I told them no, so they sent them back. I went to a local repair shop and they fixed them in 30 seconds for free. The shop actually has a sign on their door saying they refuse to change the lenses for Ray Bans because the frames snap too easily. Luxottica is a rip off.
I am writing this after going through a really bad experience buying RayBan sunglasses through a Sunglass Hut at (18 West Lightcap Rd #1035, Pottstown, PA 19464). In May 2017, I broke my glasses and visited a nearby Sunglass Hut store in Texas for replacement. She asked me for a receipt so that she can check if I am eligible for 50% off on any new glass purchase because I am already a Rayban customer.
Since I didn't have a receipt, I called the (18 West Lightcap Rd #1035, Pottstown, PA 19464) store requesting for a receipt. In here, the store manager pulled up my information using my last name and told me that I was not eligible for any offers at this time since the warranty on the glasses expired and asked me to prove that I am their customer. I told that I still have the card used for purchase if that can help prove it but she was rude in answering back that she didn't have time to discuss this matter more since she is super busy.
As per the Rayban customer site, the warranty shows that warranty exists for 2 years and I am pretty sure that I purchased this glass in 2015 August and still should be in warranty. The manager in the store is not ready to cooperate issuing me duplicate receipt and challenging me back that I have to prove her that I am her customer in this store where I purchased the glasses. I can do that using my credit card used. Is there anything I can do to get help and support on my case.
Spring hinge on my prescription glasses temple arm came un-soldered when opening. This is my second pair of Versace that this has happened to. Both glasses were cared for and were just over a year old when it happened. I first went into Lenscrafters who told me that I needed to speak with Versace for any warranty claims. I asked if they meant Luxottica and got a blank stares back as if I was speaking a foreign language and reconfirmed I needed to speak with Versace, and provided me with the model numbers I would need for my glasses. Ironically after reaching out to Versace, they recommended I contact Lenscrafters.
I did a quick search online and found the Luxottica express claim website. I was excited to see a response within 2 days in my junk inbox. Sadly the response was they were unable to read the code on my glasses and said I would need to send them the original receipt. I quickly responded back letting them know I did no longer had a copy, however here is the model number and information I was provided at the store (even though this information was also provided during my original submission).
7 days went by and I hadn't received a response back so thought I'd try reaching out via phone. It took 44 minutes of waiting on hold for a rep to answer. After asking her for my claim status, she confirmed my information and said that the claim was denied due to accidental damage - with a date that was 1 day prior to the original email I had received requesting the proof of purchase. WHAT? After further discussion, she then went on to say my claim was denied due to quality of images and that I would need to send my glasses into them for inspection. Seeing as these are my only prescription glasses, I told her that wouldn't be an option for me.
She was able to provide me with a new option that allowed me to re-send a few images over to her via email - which were then forwarded to another department. I'm still waiting to see what the response after submitting new photos. No answer yet. Clearly the reps are trained on providing lies to the customer in order to push for mail-in support. After reading other responses, it appears that they make you pay a high shipping fee and place your card on file so that you're charged 50% MSPR if the glasses aren't covered - which I'm assuming is a rare occurrence. CRIMINAL.
