- A description of the goods is set out on our website.
- When ordering, you must provide us with details of the relevant prescription that is to be applied to the goods. All prescriptions provided to us must be issued to you by a registered medical practitioner/optometrist following an eye test by him or her within the last 2 year or sooner as stipulated by examining optometrist.
- We will rely on the prescription provided by you and the goods provided by opticians4less will correspond to that prescription received.
- If you are unsure of the prescription that is to be applied to the goods, please consult a registered medical practitioner or optometrist before placing an order.
- Unless you state otherwise, we use an appropriate average pupillary distance ‘PD’ to complete your order. Unless you specify a particular ‘PD’ during your order process you will be agreeing to let us use an average PD for bifocal and single vision lenses. Opticians4less recommend that you consult your optician to obtain your PD before ordering, and provide that PD number to us when ordering. Alternatively, we have a do it yourself guide to measuring ones own PD that can be found within our ‘help’ section.

- When new glasses are ordered with varifocal lenses, we require the customer to apply the ‘template sticker’ to the foldable template frame that will be sent to you with relevant instructions as soon as we receive your order. This process is designed to help us accurately decipher lens centration for your new varifocal glasses.
