Notice of Possible Delays - May 2021
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation we're having to adhere to government social distancing guidelines and strict health and safety measures, which means that the production and delivery of your glasses may take longer than normally advertised. We are also experiencing some slight ongoing delays with designer branded frames arriving from our suppliers based in Europe due to Brexit related changes.
Order Delays & Backlog
During February to April we experienced a sudden growth in demand which resulted in a backlog of orders awaiting completion in our lab. During March & April we improved our internal processes, recruited additional lab technicians and operated our lab (temporarily) 7 days a week to meet this demand. In May, and while we still have a small backlog to clear, we are starting to see a return to our normal level of service albeit with an increased level of capacity.
We are currently working as quickly as we can to ensure our customers receive their orders as quickly as possible but we do ask for your patience and understanding if this takes a little longer than normal.
We’re committed to ensuring orders are completed and dispatched as soon as possible. The majorty of our Single Vision orders are completed within 7-10 working days*, however this timescale can vary depending on the contents of your order and any advised delays. For transparency, we have included the following production timescale estimations (quoted in working days):-
