April/May 2022 - Production Update

Due to the widely publicised Covid outbreak in Asia, our lens and frame supply lines may be adversely impacted which may cause a slight delay with order production in the short term (this may extend any timescales stated below or elsewhere on our website). Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause. We thank you for your patience at this time.

Suspension with Shipping to Spain

Unfortunately the Spanish authorities levy a fine on all imports of prescription glasses. There is no logic to the fines, no reason given for the fines and the fines vary from small values to very large demands. We cannot therefore deliver to any Spanish address. We can deliver to any other address within the EU with all VAT and import duties paid by us.

Production Timescales & Information

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.

Shipping Delays / Order Not Arrived?

If your order does not arrive within our estimated timescales, please do not worry, your parcel may be delayed in the mailing system slightly. Our normal advice is to allow 2 weeks (10 business days) for delivery as 99% of parcels are delivered within this time.

If your order has not arrived after this period, please check with your local mailing office then contact our customer services team.

When contacting us to report non-delivery, please include your order number, name and the date of dispatch. We will send you a non-delivery form that must be completed so we can use as evidence of non-receipt in our claim with our shippers.

Please note customer's own items or reglazes are sent at the customer's own risk unless we agree otherwise in writing. We therefore cannot be held responsible should these items go missing in the postal system.

*Due to the unreliability with some overseas mailing systems, we can no longer offer free shipping to the following countries: China, South Africa, Ukraine, Russia.
