Our team at Genusee is dedicated to making sure you absolutely love your new glasses. 🤓 Try them risk-free for 30 days. 😎 

Glasses must be returned in their original packaging, in new, unworn condition, unaltered & undamaged, and postmarked within 30 days of being received for a full refund.

Return shipping is free for returns within the US. We also offer return shipping for our international customers for a $30 restocking fee.

What if my return is late?
Returns postmarked outside of the 30 day policy are ineligible for a refund but will automatically be processed for an online credit.

What if I want to exchange something for a different color, style, or reader magnification?
We are happy to offer a one-time, free of charge exchange within 30 days of delivery for each purchase of Genusee glasses to:
