Delivering to the USA

Ordering from Vision Direct to the USA couldn't be simpler; we promise fast delivery to all destinations once your order has been dispatched.

If you live in the USA we do require a few extra details to process your order.


These are:

Your SSN or TIN: For your order to clear customs without delay we ask that you send us your SSN (Social Security Number) or TIN (Taxpayer Identification Number). Why do we need this? Well we delivery with trusted courier company DHL Express and they require this information to get your order to you as quickly as possible. If they don't supply this number, your order may be delayed at customs and you might be contacted directly.

A Contact Lens Prescription: We like to minimise the issue of prescription checking as much as we can, but the FDA require that we include a copy of your latest contact lens prescription with your order, however it does not need to be in date. All our US orders will be placed from our sister company Vision Direct BV, who are based in Europe and do not need to verify prescriptions.

It costs just £4.98 ($8.46 in USD*) for orders over £49 or £7.98 ($13.56 in USD*) for all other purchases to be delivered to the USA from Vision Direct.
