FAQs

Is there warranty?

From the date of purchase and with receipt, Gatorz provides a two-year limited warranty for aluminium sunglasses purchased from www.gatorzeyewear.com. This warranty covers breakage and defects due to material and/or workmanship. Gatorz will repair or replace any current style sold within 2 years that is deemed to possess a manufacturer’s defect. Scratched or cracked lenses as a result of normal use are not covered by this warranty.

 

How do I get Gatorz replacement lenses?

Gatorz lenses are precision fitted and can only be fitted by Gatorz ourselves. Replacement lenses can be ordered online.

 

I have a Gatorz frame I can't find online anymore.

In April 2011 Gatorz discontinued 7 metal frames. The metal frames that were discontinued were the Converter, Competitor, Demora, Edge, Envy, Rockstar and Quantum.

Some previous models can be found at our Gatorz outlet store at great prices.

 

I'm military/law enforcement. Can I get a discount?

Absolutely! Send us an e-mail from your military account with requested model and delivery address outside the base (since transportation companies are not allowed to send items into the bases) and you will receive a -15% discount. 

 

What does "polarized" mean?

Polarized lenses fight glare by minimizing the passage of undesirable light to the eye. The result is sharper vision, more vivid color and greater depth perception. With glare from reflective surfaces reduced, you don’t need to squint.

 

What does "photochromatic" mean?

Photochromatic lenses darken with UV exposure, adjusting to a variety of light conditions.

  

 

What does "OPZ" mean?

OPZ means optimized polarized, which gives you all of the benefits of polarized lenses, without the "blackout" effect e.g. lens goes darker in sunshine and lightens up when no sun hits the lens.

  

What are the benefits of mirrored lenses?

Mirrored lenses have a reflective coating that reduces the amount of light passing through to the eye.

 

What difference do lens colors make?

All colors absorb light differently. Lens colors determine which parts of the light spectrum pass through the lens to your eye.

  • Grey or "smoked" lenses protect eyes from dangerous ultraviolet radiation without distorting colors. They reduce glare and absorb the same quality of light at any wavelength, which makes them good for driving, prolonged wear and general use.
  • Yellow lenses filter out near-UV blue light while allowing a larger percentage of other frequencies through. Since blue light creates glare, these lenses make everything really bright and sharp. Just don't use them for anything that requires accurate color perception. With yellow lenses, colors are very distorted.
  • Brown lenses are good for general use. Like yellow lenses, they filter out a large proportion of blue light, but they offer greater clarity and contrast, and help you maintain optimal vision even in irregular light.
  • Green lenses offer the highest contrast and greatest visual acuity of any tint. They also filter some blue light and reduce glare. This filter is recommended for prolonged use in extreme conditions.
  • Rose lenses offer the best contrast for objects against a green or blue background, making them ideal for water sports.
