What happens when my package is returned to shipper? TOP
  If your package has been returned back to us by the shipper, it is likely there was no signature for the package. If we receive a "return to sender" package, we will notify you with options listed below:

Option 1. Request a Re-Shipment: We will re-ship the package to you one time with no extra charge via USPS Priority mail or FedEx Ground. International re-shipments, upon customer approval, will be charged 50% of the original shipping fee for a re-shipment of a 'Returned to Sender' package.

Option 2. Request a Cancellation: Shipping fee's will not be refunded and restocking fee's may apply.

Option 3. Request an Exchange: Please contact us for more assistance.

If our returns department receives no answer from the customer regarding this situation within 7 days, option 2 (above) will be processed by default and will be considered finalized.

If you have any questions regarding the condition of the merchandise prior to returning, please contact us for assistance.

Prior to return/exchange, please request a return authorization form. Please ensure that all packages shipped to us are sent with insurance and tracking service. We are not responsible for returned packages that are damaged due to mishandling during shipping. Returns generally take 7 business days to process from the day it is received. All shipping charges are the customers responsibility including re-shipping for exchanges. We will contact you if we have any questions.

For international returns, please ensure the package is marked as 'RETURN WITH NO VALUE' so import taxes will not be charged. Otherwise, all import taxes must be covered by the customer. We are not responsible for any taxes associated with accepting an international return.

Each product has it's own terms, please see below:

We guarantee your lens order will match the prescription provided by your doctor. If it does not match we will remake the lenses at no extra cost.

All lens exchange requests must be sent back to us within 90 days of the delivery date.

If your doctor changes your un-expired prescription after you receive your order, you may return them within 90 days from the delivery date. We will remake the same lenses in the new prescription at no extra cost to you, aside from shipping, as a standard exchange request.

If your doctor changes your un-expired prescription within 90 days from the delivery date, any unopened boxes of contact lenses may be exchanged for your new prescription.

What Do I Do if my Frames Arrive Crooked? TOP
  All frames without lenses requested arrive brand new directly from the supplier. It is possible for these frames to arrive crooked or out of adjustment. Please request a personal adjustment upon having lenses installed from your optical shop.

We pre-adjust all frames with lenses ordered from us to be as straight as possible before shipment. Not all heads are shaped the same, therefore, it may be beneficial for you to have the frames adjusted at your local optical shop. If you have trouble finding proper assistance with adjusting your new frames, please contact us to send the frames back and we will adjust them to our best ability. Crooked frames in most cases are not considered defective and can be adjusted to fit your face. The best adjustments are done when the wearer is in the physical presence of the adjustor.
