Our Returns Policy

Due to the implementation of a new system in our warehouse, we are temporarily 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 currently take up to 2 weeks 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 2 weeks.

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

We are, unfortunately, not able to offer a free returns label for customers living outside the UK. You are welcome to return the glasses to us, however, please note that currently we are not able to dispatch orders overseas, so would not be able to offer exchanges/repairs. Returns from outside the UK can be accepted for refunds only. If there has been a manufacturing fault with your order, we would be happy to refund the postage should you obtain a proof-of-postage receipt. Please get in touch with our customer service team if you would like to discuss your options. Find our contact details here.
