All our frames feature world-leading sunglass lens technology from German manufacturer Carl Zeiss. All our Zeiss-certified lenses are polarised, category 3–approved with UV400 premium protection. UV rays can be just as harmful to the eyes as they are to the skin. For that reason, it's very important to always choose sunglasses that have this protection. We also apply an anti-scratch and anti-reflective coating to all our lenses for extra durability, at no additional cost to you.
Yes. All Ozeano eco-friendly sunglasses have premium polarised lenses which contain a special filter that blocks intense reflective lights and reduces glare. As polarised sunglasses reduce the intensity of light, please note that the appearance of LCD and LED screens can be affected when viewed through polarised lenses.
We do not currently offer prescription sunglasses, however we'd love to hear from you if it's something you would be interested in.
We offer free replacement of your lenses within the first 2 years, and will replace them anytime after that for only $80 AUD. We build our products to last and we don't want them to ever go to waste, so we're more than happy to offer this to our customers to ensure your Ozeano eyewear can be for life.
All Ozeano eco-friendly eyewear comes with a natural FSC-certified Portuguese cork protective case, as well as a GOTS-certified organic cotton pouch and cleaning cloth. Our products are sent in a home compostable courier package, and included in the sale price is worldwide carbon-neutral shipping. With every sale we also donate to Seabin Project to fund the electricity and operation of a Seabin for 3 whole days, collecting an average of 12kg of plastic and marine debris (equivalent to ~900 plastic bottles). We also donate 1% of the sale price to the '1% for the planet' organisation.
All Ozeano eyewear is one-size. We spent a considerable amount of time researching the variety in size and shape of the human head and have designed our products on what we believe to be the optimal size and shape. You can find the exact measurements of each frame on the product page. If you receive your eyewear and find that the size isn't right for you, simply return them within 60 days to receive a full refund.
We have scoured the world to find the highest natural quality materials that don't cause harm to our planet. We pay a significantly higher price for our materials than normal eyewear brands as we are very conscious of our supply chain and ensure we can guarantee they are produced in an ethical and environmentally-friendly way. Our Carl Zeiss lenses are one of the best available on the market, and all our frames are designed in Sydney and individually handmade in our manufacturing facility 4 hours North of Sydney in Port Macquarie, New South Wales, Australia. We believe our pricing is fair and we are committed to not charging large markups like most well-known brands.
We know it's important your sunglasses suit you and look just right, so we have a virtual try on service so you try all of our frames on from wherever you are. As we're a direct to consumer business, we don't have a physical store for you to visit.

We are not perfect, but we're trying our very best in everything we do to provide the highest natural quality, with the lowest environmental impact. We're an independent company focused on reducing our impact on the planet in everything we do, including using only organic, natural, renewable, recyclable and biodegradable materials in our products and shipping, crafting each individual frame by hand locally in Australia and employing a carbon-neutral courier service. We're constantly evolving how we do things and trying to lead the way in showing how it's possible to produce premium quality that doesn't cost the earth.

Made from responsibly-harvested cotton and wood pulp fibres with organic pigments and dyes, this eco-friendly Bio-Acetate is much better for our ecosystem and the environment.
Besides being made from renewable resources, M49 Bio-Acetate is 100% biodegradable within 115 days, as per the Internationally recognised standard ISO 14855.
