Trial period terms / Return procedure

Metrex Research, LLC is proud to offer flexible trial periods on Orascoptic Products; 45 days for non-Ergo loupes and headlights, and 60 days for Ergo loupes.  Products returned during the trial period must be in original condition. This includes all product accessories, all product components and manuals. If the return item has been damaged or altered, the full charge for the product may be assessed at the sole discretion of Metrex Research, LLC.

Product cannot be returned or exchanged outside of the trial period with the exception of Ergo loupes, which can be exchanged for a non-Ergo loupe for up to 6 months after the original purchase date. Product returns are not accepted when purchased using specific promotions. Please confirm with your local Sales Representative to determine which promotions are excluded from the standard return policy.
