Production Information

Because your glasses are custom-made to your prescription, delivery can vary depending on their complexity. We will send your specs as soon as our laboratory has finished customising your lenses and fitted them to your new frame. The majority of orders are dispatched within 3-5 working days but can sometimes take a little longer. Rest assured, we do our very best to get your order to you as quickly as possible, but to us, it's more important to deliver a high-quality job that is perfect rather than sacrifice quality for speed.
