Frequently Asked Questions

I own a pair of Julbos already, can I purchase a set of Julbo RX Lab Prescription lenses for them?

Unfortunately, this is not something that we can do. Our Julbo RX LAB sunglasses are made in a specialized optical lab at Julbo France. The prescription lenses are custom made to fit each individual frame. A big part of the process is to properly fit the Rx lenses into the frame. If you have a Julbo frame that is in decent condition that you want to use for prescription, we recommend asking your local optometrist if they can do that at their lab. We also work with Opticus.com and SportRx.com closely and they might be able to help!

What Is the Julbo Rx Lab Prescription Warranty?

Julbo RXLAB prescription eyewear has a limited two-year warranty from the date of purchase for any manufacturing defect regarding our special lens coatings, lens treatments or frame breakage due to material or defective workmanship. All warranty claims must be handled directly through the original dealer. If you purchased them from Julbo USA, please reach out to us. We stand by our products and if you are not completely satisfied, we will work with you to determine the best solution. Please Note: The Julbo RX LAB warranty does not cover scratched lenses or breakage caused by wear and tear. Julbo frames installed with non-Julbo custom or prescription lenses are not covered under warranty. This warranty extends only to residents of the United States.

Will insurance cover my Julbo Rx Lab purchase?

Julbo is not a provider for any insurance plans at this time. We accept all major credit cards, but often times HSA cards will decline when we attempt to authorize the payment. However, sometimes customers can be re-imbursed for their RX order from their insurance provider afterword. We suggest you discuss this with your insurance carrier in advance. If they need more information they can call us at 800-651-0833.

Will I need to adapt to my new Julbo Rx glasses?

In some cases, it takes time for your eyes to adapt and adjust to new lenses especially if you have a new prescription. The good news is most people get acclimated within 24-48 hours. We strongly recommend wearing your Julbo RX LAB sunglasses for at least two weeks. If after one month you are experiencing any of the following symptoms (blurry vision, headaches, nausea, a sense of dizziness or a lack of balance) as a direct result of wearing our JulboRx sunglasses please contact Julbo USA Customer Service at 800-651-0833 or e-mail info@julbousa.com. We stand by our products and if you are not completely satisfied with your JulboRX prescription sunglasses you can return them for a full refund within two months.

Your sunglasses will be built by our highly trained technicians at our state of the art facility in France. We know our products better than anyone & build thousands of Rx sunglasses every year

Can I order the Fury, Sherpa, Cham, Vermont Classic, Stowe or Tahoe?

The following frames are not available from our lab: Fury, Sherpa, Cham, Vermont Classic, Stowe and Tahoe. Check out opticus.com or sportrx.com for some of those frames, they will not be Julbo lenses, but they do a great job! 

What is monocular pupillary distance?
This is a per-eye measurement from the pupil to the middle of the face. . We require that you obtain your right and left eye monocular pupillary distance measurements from a licensed eye doctor or optician. You may need to ask them specifically for that, as it is not usually something they measure by default. This measurement will help to ensure your prescription is just right. 
Can I use my pro deal discount on an Rx order?
Pro deals can only be applied through our third party partners like ExpertVoice or Outdoor Prolink. Sorry, we can not apply your discount towards an Rx order. 
Are Spectron lenses available in Rx insert frames?
The only lens material that will work for a Rx insert is the Reactiv Trivex lens material. We are unable to create prescription inserts using Spectron polycarbonate material. This only pertains to frames like the Rush or Aerolite that use prescription inserts. If you want Spectron lenses, go for a Full Lens frame like the Shield or Renegade. 
Can I order outside of the USA?

US and European prescription values, are they different?

When you receive your new Julbo RX LAB sunglasses there will be additional paperwork enclosed in your package. Please do not be alarmed when you see the prescription values submitted by the lab. It will be different than what’s on your actual prescription. There are two ways to read and translate the same prescription. We handle it one way in the US, in Europe it’s expressed in another way — but they are the same prescription.
