You will receive an automatic e-mail notification upon your order being dispatched which will include your individual tracking number so you can follow your delivery's progress right to your door. All services used are signed-for, so if nobody will be home when your local post arrives, you may wish to provide us with an alternate address such as your place of work.

In the unlikely event the item you have ordered is currently out of stock, we will e-mail or call you to advise the exact timeframe expected, typically this is no more than an additional 3-7 working days. In the event the timeframe quoted proves to be unworkable, we can arrange a refund in moments.

If ordering prescription eyewear, we normally advise that UK based orders are delivered within 7 working days - although in practice its rare that any order will take this long. If we shipping to you outside the uk, please allow 7 days plus additional shipping times quoted;
Occasionally more complex jobs or prescription orders of particular brands such as ic!Berlin, Tag Heuer and other rimless frames, tinted or high-curvature lenses can take slightly longer. You will be advised accordingly by our dedicated team, who will contact you within one working day of placing your order.

Further Shipping Information

If you have missed your delivery, keep calm; your local post should leave a "while you were out" card, which you can use to re-arrange delivery online or over the telephone, or alternately pop down to your local post office to retrieve your parcel in person. Sometimes an item will be signed for by a neighbour as well. In the unlikely event that there is an issue with your delivery, we are always here to offer additional support and advice. Please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have.

Import Duty

In most cases, import duties and taxes are not applied when your parcel arrives, however please note that customers could be charged for some deliveries, once the parcel reaches its destination country. These charges must be paid by the recipient of the parcel. Unfortunately, we have no control over these charges as customs policies vary from country to country. If you have any questions related to customs charges you are advised to contact your local customs office
