Despite our best efforts, a small number of the items in our catalogue may be mispriced. We will verify pricing when processing your order and before we take payment. If we have made a mistake and a product's correct price is higher than the price on the website, we may either contact you before dispatch to request whether you want to buy the product at the correct price or cancel your order. If a product's correct price is lower than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount and send you the product.
As we only sell to consumers, we typically issue only a bill and not a full fiscal invoice. Please keep a physical or electronic copy of your bill, order confirmation or shipping confirmation as a documentation for potential warranty or guarantee claims.
24. PRODUCT AVAILABILITY
We list availability information for products sold by us on the website including on each product information page. As we process your order, we will inform you by email as soon as possible if any products you order turn out to be unavailable. You have the option not to be charged for those products, to receive a partial refund or to wait for items to be in stock again so we ship later to you.
Certain products or services may be available exclusively online through the website. These products or services may have limited quantities and are subject to return or exchange only according to our Returns Policy.
We reserve the right, but are not obligated, to limit the sales of our products or services to any person, geographic region or jurisdiction. We may exercise this right on a case-by-case basis. We reserve the right to limit the quantities of any products or services that we offer.
25. PRODUCT INFORMATION
Unless expressly indicated otherwise, we are not the manufacturer of the products sold on this website. While we work to ensure that product information on our website is correct, actual product packaging and materials may contain more and different information to that displayed on our website. Ingredients may also change.
All information about the products on our website is provided for information purposes only. We recommend that you do not rely solely on the information presented on our website. Please always read labels, warnings and directions provided with the product before use or contact the manufacturer.
Content on this site is not intended to substitute for advice given by a medical practitioner, optician, optometrist, ophthalmologist, pharmacist or other licensed healthcare professional. Contact your healthcare provider immediately if you suspect that you have a medical problem. Information and statements about products are not intended to be used to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease or health condition. We accept no liability for inaccuracies or misstatements about products by manufacturers or other third parties. This does not affect your statutory rights.
We have made every effort to display as accurately as possible the colors and images of our products that appear at the store. We cannot guarantee that your computer monitor's display of any color will be accurate.
All descriptions of products are subject to change at any time without notice, at the sole discretion of us. We reserve the right to discontinue any product at any time. Any offer for any product or service made on this site is void where prohibited.
Usage instructions on the product box may not be in your native language. We provide product manuals in the language of our customers either in printed or electronic form. Should you require any product manual, please get in touch with us by email.
When you create an account with us, you must provide us information that is accurate, complete, and current at all times. Failure to do so constitutes a breach of the Terms, which may result in immediate termination of your account on our Service.

27. PROFESSIONAL BUYERS
We reserve the right to limit or prohibit orders that, in our sole judgment, appear to be placed by dealers, resellers or distributors. Such professional buyers should identify themselves prior to ordering and agree to commercial terms of ordering from us.
Please note that we sell products only in quantities which correspond to the typical needs of an average household. This applies both to the number of products ordered within a single order and the placing of several orders for the same product where the individual orders comprise a quantity typical for a normal household.
28. ESTABLISHMENT OF OUR COMMERCIAL CONTRACT
When you order from us, you submit an offer to buy the products from us. Our system then sends you a message confirming receipt of your order and containing the details of your order. This is an acknowledgement that we have received your order, and does not confirm our acceptance of your offer to buy the product(s) or the services ordered.
We only accept your offer, and conclude the contract of sale for a product ordered by you, when we dispatch the product to you and send an electronic message confirming to you that we've dispatched the product to you. If your order is dispatched in more than one package, you may receive a separate dispatch message for each package, and each message and corresponding dispatch will conclude a separate contract of sale between us for the product(s) specified in that message.
You can cancel your order for a product at no cost any time before we send the confirmation message relating to that product. This right to cancel does not apply to certain categories of products and services. You also have statutory rights as well as guarantees to return items to us after you ordered. Please refer to the section on cancellations for details.
You consent to receive sales invoices electronically or in a printed form, as we see fit. We will include a copy of the bill or a packing list with each delivery to you. As we sell to private individuals, our invoices may not meet the accounting criteria for fiscal invoices by professional buyers.
29. DELIVERY ESTIMATES
When we have your items in stock, we seek to pack you order on the same business day and send it out to you immediately. However, we cannot guarantee that placing your order at a given time means we will ship to you on the same day. Please also note that the expression on our website „in stock” generally refers to the fact that we keep your product line in stock, but the individual product combination you are buying may or may not be in stock on that specific day.
When we do not have your items in stock, we try to give you an estimate for the time it takes for us to receive your items. Some items are constantly re-ordered so they may arrive soon. Others, on the other hand, may require us to order your items specifically for you. Our estimate will show reorder times typical for the product line you are ordering. However, the actual shipping time for your specific items may vary. As we are dependent upon our suppliers here, we try to furnish you with information but the actual delivery times cannot be guaranteed.
We typically ship your order in one shipment, after all products are in stock. Sometimes we may elect to ship your items in separate parcels for logistics considerations. If you so desire, you can elect to have the available items shipped to you, although you may be charged the applicable shipping fees of two orders then.
Please note that unless otherwise stated on the website, delivery estimates are just that. They are not guaranteed delivery times and should not be relied upon as such.
To ensure fast delivery, we recommend you provide us your full postal address as well as daytime telephone number for our logistics partners to contact you. Once the order is shipped, you will receive access to a track and trace number where you can follow the shipment online if you opted for a tracked shipping option. We can, unfortunately, not be responsible for shipping delays caused by our logistics partners.
30. DELIVERY ISSUES
We pack your products in protective packaging in order to ensure delivery in perfect condition. However, certain delivery issues may result in your being dissatisfied or the product deemed unfit for use. Please check your parcel upon receiving it. In case of major issues either refuse delivery (so the parcel is automatically returned to us by the same courier) or notify us immediately after you opened the parcel.
31. INTERNATIONAL BUYERS
We ship to most countries of the world. Please refer to current shipping options and charges on our website.
When ordering products for delivery outside of the EU, you may be subject to import duties and taxes, which are levied once the package reaches the specified destination. Any additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by you; we have no control over these charges. Customs policies vary widely from country to country, so you should contact your local customs office for further information. Another good source of information is dutycalculator.com.
Additionally, please note that when ordering from us, you are considered the importer of record and must comply with all laws and regulations of the country in which you are receiving the products. Your privacy is important to us and we would like our international customers to be aware that cross-border deliveries are subject to opening and inspection by customs authorities.
32. CANCELLATION BEFORE SHIPPING
The following refers to orders made for products that are not made to order (i.e., custom made for your specifications).
You have the right to cancel your order before we ship to you. Please let us know by sending a return email to the order confirmation. This effectively cancels your order to us and thus no commercial contract is established.
In most cases, your cancellation means the shipment will never take place.
However, our ability to stop the shipment may be limited by the type of logistics fulfilment we use for your specific order. In most cases, we are able to stop shipments for cancellations received before 14.00 pm. In a few other cases, we may be unable to stop shipments on the same business day.
In the few cases where we have been unable to stop the shipment after you cancelled, you are still safe. First, we may try to contact the logistics partner and ask them not to deliver to you. Secondly, if we cannot stop the shipment from being delivered to you, just refuse to accept the shipment when mailman or courier delivery contacted you.
33. REFUNDS AFTER SHIPPING
After we shipped your order, the sale has taken place. You still have the right to request a refund or exchange the items.
First, you have statutory rights to ask for a full refund of your order. Your statutory rights are defined by laws in your country or consumer protection regulations by the European Union. Generally, you can cancel your order without giving any reason within 14 days from the day on which you receive the goods purchased (or last shipment if it relates to goods or multiple items pieces delivered separately). You must inform us of your decision to cancel your order. You may submit your request according to the instructions and forms available on our website, or by contacting us by email. To meet the cancellation deadline, it is sufficient for you to send your communication before the 14 days’ cancellation period has expired and ship the items to us in 5 working days thereafter.
We also offer further “money back” guarantees for your purchase of specific product categories. At the moment, we offer a 365 days’ money back guarantee (after the date of purchase) for all contact lenses, contact lens solutions and eye drops.
For the refunds to take place, the returned goods must be unopened, unused, the packaging must be undamaged and there should be enough shelf life left. The right of cancellation, refund and exchange does not apply to the delivery of products which are not suitable for return due to health protection or hygienic reasons if unsealed by you after delivery, or which are, after delivery, inseparably mixed with other items; and to the supply of goods which may deteriorate or expire rapidly. We define acceptable shelf life left as 6 months or more (as long as we shipped items to you with at least 12 months’ shelf life).
Returning the items is at your cost. We will then refund the original costs you paid for the items as well as shipping if you are returning an entire order. If you are returning only some but not all the items from an order, we then refund you the costs paid for the relevant items. We initiate the refunds in 2-3 working days or less via the same means of payment as you used for the initial transaction, unless you have expressly agreed otherwise. In any event, you will not incur any fees as a result of such reimbursement. We may withhold reimbursement until we have received the goods back or you have supplied evidence of having sent back the goods, whichever is the earliest.
34. COMPLAINTS AND RETURNS
If you wish to return a damaged or faulty product, we recommend you place it in a stiff box and send it by registered post. This is to prevent damage during transport. If you wish to return any contact lenses that have been unpacked (or used), it should be prevented from drying out during transport. We recommend you place the lens in a case with solution and close it firmly. As each return is unique in its own way we advise you to contact our customer service help desk beforehand to stipulate the exact details of the return (how many lenses will be returned, was the package opened or unopened, will the box be included in the return, communication of the LOT number, etc.) at email@example.com. The item you wish to return should be accompanied by a letter describing the product’s fault and the expected result.
Defective contact lenses (scratches, marks, broken contact lenses before opening). Please inspect carefully the lenses in the blisters before opening and if you see clear damages on the lens, please don't open them. For the warranty to be covered, it will be needed for the lenses to be sent to us unsealed to check for the damage. If the lenses are not sealed and there are such damages on the lens, we might consider there is improper handling of the lens and no refund will be granted.
Complaints about contact lens quality - if after opening the lenses and putting them on you have complaints about the quality (redness, blurred vision, eyes drying too fast, uncomfortable feeling), we will need to receive the lenses back so we can send them to the manufacturer for an inspection. The costs of returning the faulty product are to be borne by the customer. Please keep in mind that this inspection can take up to several weeks, as this is a process we cannot influence. If after the inspection, we decided that there was a manufacturing error, we will return or refund the cost of the lenses and the postage fee. If, on the other hand, there is no manufacturing error discovered, we cannot return the contact lenses or send a product replacement.
Complaints about the corrective power of the lenses. If you notice that the lenses don't offer the vision correction you were expecting, please write to us right away, sending the prescription of your contact lenses that needs to be not older than 1 year. If the prescription matches the lenses you have ordered, we will need you to send the product back for an inspection. Please keep in mind that this inspection can take up to several weeks, as this is a process we cannot influence. If after the inspection, we decided that there was a manufacturing error, we will return or refund the cost of the lenses and the postage fee. If, on the other hand, there is no manufacturing error discovered, we cannot return the contact lenses or send a product replacement. If you can't provide us with a prescription, or the prescription doesn't match the contact lenses you have ordered, no refund or resend of the product will be offered.
Complaints about incorrect parameters. Please check the box before opening it and see it matches with your prescription. If you notice there is a difference between what you ordered and what you received, please contact customer service immediately and do not open the box. If we notice that there was an error from our side, we will ask you to send us the wrong product back, we will cover the shipping fees and resend you the product you ordered, or refund you. If the error was made when placing the order, we will ask you to send us the product back, the shipping costs being borne by you. After receiving the product, we will proceed with sending a replacement product or with a refund. Please announce the customer service before sending a product back and always use the return address you are offered by emails and that is shown at the Returns page. Returns done to any other address will not be taking into consideration and no resend or refund will be granted.
Complaints about the color effect of the coloured lenses. The effect of the coloured lenses is very subjective and also dependent on the natural colour of your eyes. Since it is impossible to predict the final effect, we can't offer a refund for coloured lenses if the effect is not what you were expecting.
Complaints about missing products from the order. If you notice upon receiving the parcel that this is not intact and the box or envelope is not sealed, please do not accept the parcel and contact us right away. If you do accept the parcel that is not in an intact condition, we can't accept any complaints about missing or damaged products. If the parcel is in an intact condition, yet products are missing from the box, or are damaged, please contact customer service, by sending any useful information and pictures if needed. We will evaluate the situation and come back with an answer to you in 48-72 hours after receiving the complaint.
Complaints about short expiry(less than 6 months) date products. If you receive a product that has an expiry date shorter than its use period, please do not open it and contact customer service right away. If the expiry date was mentioned on the product page, we can't accept a return or offer a refund. If though, the information was not mentioned on the product page, we will send you a replacement product with a longer expiry date, once we receive the new stock.
Spectacles and sunglasses - The products must be in an intact condition, ready to be sold as new products. Prescription lenses based on a prescription are not eligible for a refund, only the frames can be refunded after the return. The shipping costs of the return are to be covered by the customer. If you are not happy with the frame and would like to change it, you need to send us the products, the postage fee being covered by you. We will then wait to receive back the product, which can take up to 2 weeks and only after that we will proceed with changing the frame of your customer made lenses. If you would like to receive the product faster and for us to place a new order right away, you will have to cover the price of the custom made lenses.
Instead of a refund, you can also request an exchange of the items you would like to return to us. The original items must still be returned to us under the same conditions as for refunds.
We will credit the costs of the items you paid towards the exchange. As we are unable to do a partial refund, we are able to do an exchange only for an order equaling or higher in value than the value of the goods you are returning.
We can reserve the right do to an automatic product replacement with a different package size when the original item size is not in stock and we can then be able to service the order faster.
36. PRODUCTS MADE TO ORDER
The right of cancellation, refund and exchange does not apply to the supply of goods made to your specifications or clearly personalized.
For example, a pair of prescription glasses is made to your specifications. Sunglasses are generally not. But again, sunglasses fitted with prescription lenses (with reflective coating applied to the lenses) are again personalized to you.
Unless otherwise stated in our offering, we are unable to issue refunds or exchanges for these products.
37. LICENSED OPTICIAN
We comply with all laws and regulations related to the online and offline sale of products we offer.
We are a fully licensed optician, offering eye checks by optometrists, dispensing of contact lenses and related products, manufacture of prescription glasses and the provision of related services. Our license originates from Hungary and is passported to other EU countries under
We also meet the criteria mandated by other regulations for the ecommerce sale of contact lenses online.
We have the right to assign the commercial contract (i.e. for the specific sale to your order) with you to another legal entity. The typical reason for assigning such a contract is for the ability of that other legal entity to fulfil your order in a quality superior to you than we could. For example, they may ship faster, cheaper or have the products that you ordered on stock. Such a legal entity may or may not belong to the same group of companies as we do.
We will communicate with you in writing about the assignment of the contract and who will fulfil your order. The new legal entity fulfilling the order will then send an email about shipping the items, which then creates the contract between you. The contract shall be governed by the current Terms of Sale.
We may only assign the contract with you as long as the new legal entity now fulfilling your order assumes and agrees to perform all the remaining and executory obligations under the contract. Your rights do not change, only our obligations are not fulfilled by someone else. In case the new legal entity does not fulfil their obligation, we remain accountable to deliver the products or services you ordered from us.
In case we assigned the contract, we only collect the money for the other legal entity as his collection agent. We may or may not be paid a marketing commission for enabling the sale by the new legal entity.
By assigning the sale contract to someone else, we remain liable for all refund or exchange requests for you. We will back up our commitment to you by a reciprocal agreement by the legal entity that fulfilled your order.
