COVID-19 Production & Delivery Impact - August 2020

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 (below). We are working as hard and as fast as possible to ensure our customers receive their orders as quickly as possible - see here for further COVID-19 Information.

To avoid any possible delays in the mailing system, we currently recommend choosing a Tracked Delivery method (ie, Tracked 24/48, Special Delivery, International Tracked & Signed).

Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time.

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.
