Our Returns Policy

Due to the impact caused by the current COVID-19 situation, we are unable to process returns as quickly as we would like to. We will process your request as soon as we can, however, please be aware this can take up to 7 working days from receiving the glasses in our warehouse. You will receive an automated confirmation email once the return package has arrived with us, but we may not be able to process the return for up to 7 working days.

UK returns

You may return, exchange or receive a refund on your glasses if you are unhappy with them for any reason, providing that the following conditions are met:

When returning your product, we recommend that you obtain proof of postage. If you take our pre-paid label to the post office then you will be given a free proof of postage receipt. If you have lost the postage label, you can print a new one on the Royal Mail website.

Alternatively, you could use a recorded delivery service via a courier company, as we are unable to take responsibility for packages lost in post. Your statutory rights in relation to returns and refunds are not affected. See also section 11 of the terms and conditions: Your right to cancel.

International returns

Currently, if you choose to return your frames to us from an international order, we are unable to dispatch them back to you. Please get in touch with our customer service team if you would like to discuss your options. Find our contact details here.
