Is there a cheaper alternative to DHL Express Worldwide to avoid the $30.00 Shipping charge?

DHL Express Worldwide takes anywhere between 5 - 7 days to reach their destination. However, customs clearance procedures that are sometimes required, can cause delays beyond our original delivery estimates.
FRAME AND LENS INQUIRIES
Are the lenses UV Protected?
We take eye health seriously. All our lenses come with polarized lenses that offer 100% protection from UVA and UVB rays.
What is the difference between Polarized and Non-Polarized?
Polarized lenses are specialized lenses designed specifically to reduce glare from reflected surfaces such as water, snow, and glass. The main difference is that Polarized lenses are designed to block glare where as Non-Polarized lenses only colorize and block intense light.
Do you offer prescription Lenses?
All ROAV sunglasses come with prescription friendly frames; and although we do not fit the prescription lenses ourselves, most optometrists should be able to assist in switching out the lenses and refitting them with lenses that suit the customers preferences of style or lens power.
Any certified Optician & Optometrist can easily witch out the lenses since the design of our frame allows for an easy replacement of the lenses.
We work closely with an optician lab (Lensabl) in the US that is experienced in putting Rx lenses or any other lens of your choice into our frames. They provide direct to consumer pricing and ROAV customers get an additional 20% discount with them with code ROAV20.
You can find all the info for this at lensabl.com/roav.

All ROAV sunglasses come with a 2 year manufacturers' warranty. This warranty does not cover scratches on lenses, damages caused by accident, abuse, neglect, improper use or storage of the product, unauthorized modifications, or normal wear and tear.
Do the hinges/joints loosen over time?
All ROAV sunglasses are designed using our proprietary micro screw-less hinge design. This means that the hinges/joints are formed within the 2 adjoining metal parts and hence never become loose. If for any reason the hinges do get loose we'd be happy to repair or replace the part for you at no charge.
What material are the frames? Do the frames rust?
Our frames are made from surgical grade stainless steel and are rust free. The frames undergo a vapor deposition process to ensure a consistent finish that will last through the years. Prolonged exposure to salt water may erode the plating and cause damage to the lenses.

Are they truly unbreakable?
ROAV sunglasses are all made from surgical grade stainless steel with our proprietary screw-less design technology.

What is the best part of ROAV sunglasses?
ROAV sunglasses are the thinnest sunglasses in the world. Make them folding sunglasses and you're at a whole different level of coolness! With that said, because they're so thin they end up being the most convenient pair to go to especially if you're on the move like us. These fold up so nice that they become almost second nature to you and your day; kinda like your wallet it's always with you when you're ready to step out.
Why are they so expensive?
All ROAV Sunglasses comes with our proprietary screw less design micro hinge. This is essential to ensuring that:
A) Your pair will never break! They might disassemble but that's it; and although they might look and feel really fragile/flimsy they can actually take quite a beating and are extremely resilient to any form of breakage. This is further reinforced by the design of the pouch/case which ensure the sunglasses always have a secure case when they aren't in use.
B) We've used the best quality materials/methods to make durable, stylish and premium eyewear for less.
