CONFORMITY OF GOODS
A description of the goods is set out on our website . Whilst we will attempt to ensure that there are no changes to the goods to be supplied, it is possible that there may be some minor variations to the description and/or specification of the goods which arise by virtue of changes made by the manufacturers of the parts supplied which form part of the goods. If an order is placed and during the customisation process the original frame colour is no longer available from our suppliers, we shall glaze the lenses into a frame colour that is similar to the original.
When ordering, you must provide us with details of the relevant prescription that is to be applied to the goods.
