Do I need a Proof of Purchase?
A copy of your proof of purchase is required to be considered for manufacturer’s defect claims. Please send a photocopy of your receipt, rather than the original, which should be kept for your records.
To be considered valid, the receipt needs to have been generated by an authorized Native dealer. To confirm authorization, you can check the dealer locator www.nativeyewear.com/dealerlocator or call Native customer service at 888-77-NATIVE.
Finally, your proof of purchase must match the item(s) you are returning under this warranty.

- Glasses which have been fitted with prescription lenses
What do I need to send in for my warranty claim to be processed?
When you complete the repair form, please print two copies of the address label. One will need to be affixed on the outside of your shipping box. The other will go inside the box with your Native sunglasses or goggles.
When submitting your warranty, only send the frame and all lenses that need repair/replacement. Please do not send extra temples, cases, retainer cords, additional lenses, or cleaning cloths.
We encourage you to send your Natives by a traceable method (such as UPS or insured mail) in a sturdy cardboard box. Unfortunately, Native cannot be responsible for lost or misdirected packages.
What if the style I own has been discontinued?
If your original Native sunglasses or goggles style have been discontinued or is no longer available, we ask that you select a new style. We recommend that you go to a local Native retailer to try on some options before you make a final decision. If there aren't any Native dealers nearby, you can call Customer Service to ask for recommendations.
All substitutions are final. Customer service is happy to help if you have questions regarding the best replacement style. They can be reached at 888-77-NATIVE.
What if I Experience a Manufacturer's Defect?
If there is a defect in the materials or workmanship within the first year of purchase, Native Eyewear will repair free of charge as long as a copy of your sales receipt with a legible date is included with your repair shipment.
Native Eyewear has the sole discretion to determine manufacturer's defects.
While scratched lenses are not considered a manufacturer's defect, we do cover lens replacement under the standard Lifetime Warranty.
If you no longer have your Proof of Purchase, you can still submit your sunglasses through the standard warranty. Without a proof of purchase, the $30 processing fee will apply.

What is Prop 65?
