Warranty Periods

Given the demanding environment in which the product must perform, safety eyewear should be fabricated to take a great deal of abuse. In selecting an appropriate vendor, check to see that the provider will stand behind its product and service. At Hi-Tech Optical, prescription accuracy is unconditionally guaranteed. Frame materials are guaranteed for a minimum of one year. Read more about our warranty policy.


Customer Service: Gaining a quick answer to a thorny technical question or an expedited shipment in an emergency can become a frustration to the person in charge of a company's safety eyewear program. In selecting an eyewear service vendor, review the proficiency and depth of experience in the Customer Service Department. A well-trained, courteous and knowledgeable staff can save you many headaches in effectively administering your safety eyewear program.

Order Turnaround: Safety prescription eyewear is a time-sensitive protective device and must be worn by the employee as soon as possible. While occasional backlogs and unusual prescriptions may periodically delay the turnaround time of an individual order, the following schedule should serve as a benchmark in judging the performance of your safety eyewear provider, when all information is complete on the order form, including a legible prescription, any possibly copays, seg height, pupillary distance, and frame information:

  • Plastic Lenses - 3 to 6 Production Days
  • Glass & Polycarbonate Lenses - 4 to 7 Production Days

Should you experience delays beyond these parameters, it may be wise to review either your program design or contact Hi-Tech Optical for a proposal.

Auxiliary Services: Special cost center billings, tailored billing options, safety eyewear audits and monthly, quarterly, or yearly employee utilization reports are but a few of the extra features a well-designed safety eyewear program should contain. In selecting a vendor, it is wise to anticipate your future program demands and seek an eyewear provider that will grow as your program evolves. Complete, comprehensive and flexible safety eyewear programs are our specialty at Hi-Tech Optical.
