Contact lens returns

If your prescription changes...

If you go for an eye check and your prescription has changed, just return any leftover lenses, unopened and in their original, undamaged box and we’ll refund your money – provided it’s within six months of you buying the lenses. We’ll refund your account within seven working days once we’ve checked the returned products. Naturally, we’ll be happy to supply replacement lenses to your new prescription.

If we ever get it wrong...

If the products you receive are different to the ones you were expecting, or somehow damaged in transit, simply return them to us. We can then supply the products you wanted (if the cost is less, we’ll refund the difference; if it’s higher, we’ll amend your invoice accordingly). If you prefer, return the order and we’ll refund your money.

If you're just not happy...

If it turns out that you receive your order and you’re just not happy with it for any reason, you may return any unopened, unmarked boxes to us within 100 days of you receiving your order for a full refund on all the products.
