By placing an order you are offering to purchase a product on and subject to these Conditions. All orders are subject to availability and confirmation of the order price.
Dispatch times may vary according to availability and subject to any delays resulting from postal delays or force majeure for which we will not be responsible. Please see our Delivery notice for further information.
In order to contract with the Company you must be over 18 years of age, legally able to enter into binding contracts and possess a valid credit or debit card issued by a bank acceptable to us. The Company retains the right to refuse any request made by you. If your order is accepted we will inform you by email and we will confirm the identity of the party which you have contracted with. When placing an order you undertake that all details you provide to us are true and accurate, that you are an authorised user of the credit or debit card used to place your order and that there are sufficient funds to cover the cost of the goods. When you place an order, you will receive an acknowledgement email confirming receipt of your order: this email will only be an acknowledgement and will not constitute acceptance of your order. A contract between us will not be formed until we send you confirmation by e-mail that the goods which you ordered have been dispatched to you. Only those goods listed in the confirmation email sent at the time of dispatch will be included in the contract formed.
If you are contracting as a consumer, you may cancel an order at any time within 30 days, beginning on the day after you received the Products. In this case, you will receive a full refund of the price paid for the Products in accordance with our refunds policy (set out below). As prescription lenses are a bespoke item, once ordered this element of the order cannot be cancelled or refunded.
To cancel an order, you must inform us via email and return the Product(s) to us immediately to the address provided by our customer services team or the address listed in the returns form, in the same condition in which you received them.
This provision does not affect your statutory rights.
When you return a Product to us (for instance, because you have cancelled the order or because you claim that the Product is defective), we will examine the returned Product and will notify you of your refund via e-mail within a reasonable period of time. We can only refund any money received from you using the same method originally used by you to pay for your purchase. We will usually process the refund due to you within 48 hours of receiving the return, in any case, within 14 days of the day we received your cancellation or the day we confirmed to you via email that you were entitled to a refund for delivery of the defective Product.
Products returned by you because of a defect will be refunded in full, including a refund of the delivery charges for sending the item to you and the cost incurred by you in returning the item to us.
Products returned by you within the 30 day period referred to in the section entitled “Consumer Rights” will be refunded in full, including the cost of sending the item to you.
Whilst we try to ensure that all details, descriptions and prices which appear on this Website are accurate, errors may occur. If we discover an error in the price of any goods which you have ordered we will inform you of this as soon as possible and give you the option of reconfirming your order at the correct price or cancelling it. If we are unable to contact you we will treat the order as cancelled. If you cancel and you have already paid for the goods, you will receive a full refund.
All prices are inclusive of VAT. Delivery costs will be charged in addition; such additional charges are clearly displayed where applicable and included in the ‘Total Cost’.
Upon receiving your order we carry out a standard pre-authorisation check on your payment card to ensure there are sufficient funds to fulfil the transaction. Goods will not be dispatched until this pre-authorisation check has been completed. Your card will be debited once the order has been accepted.

You will not attempt to wear any lens where the lens prescription does not match your current lens prescription and that the left and right lenses should be worn only in the corresponding eye.
You have a contact lens check at least once in any period of twelve months or more frequently, if recommended by your optician.
You consent to us contacting your optician or contact lens practitioner to verify your contact lens specification if necessary, and that if the verified details do not match those provided by you, we will be unable to complete the sale to you until you undergo an eye test with an optician or contact lens practitioner. If, for any reason, you do not wish to undergo an eye test, you may cancel the order.
