If you live in the Republic of Ireland please visit www.visionexpress.ie where we offer a range of products. At present, we are unable to make deliveries to the Channel Islands and countries outside of the UK, excluding Ireland.
If you missed our courier, they will attempt re-delivery a further twice before returning the parcel to our warehouse. You can divert the parcel to a local parcel shop, or nominate a 'safe place' by using the link sent in the courier's email.
As many of our products are processed and dispatched on the same day as ordering, we are therefore unable to cancel your order once payment has been taken. Please see our Free 100 day returns page for how to return your order once received using a free returns label.
Our non-prescription sunglasses, solutions and eyecare accessories are picked and dispatched from our central warehouse. However, prescription products take us a little longer to check and create individually. Therefore, depending on the content of your basket we may from time to time be required to send parts of your order separately, which could mean that they arrive with you on different days.
We are unfortunately unable to change the delivery address once an order has been placed. That is because we cannot guarantee that the change in our system will be effective before the delivery takes place, and also to prevent possible fraud. You can try to contact the courier for advice, or to try and divert the delivery to a parcel shop.
We put great care throughout our packing process to make sure you receive your items in perfect condition. However, damage may occur while the delivery is in transit.
If you notice that the contents are damaged or faulty after you have received the delivery, please contact our Customer Care team for advice on 0800 038 2177.
We understand that’s scary! Please check with your neighbours to see if one of them received the package for you or if you have a courier calling card posted through your letterbox. If you can’t find it please contact our Customer Care team for advice on 0800 038 2177.
Unfortunately we currently are unable to send items to British Forces Post Offices (BFPO), however please check back to our website in the future as we are hopeful of offering this service in the future.
