Adding products

Delivery times of non-stock goods

Thanks to our extensive stock, we are able to immediately send out 97% of all orders received. However, the dispatching of special contact lenses that are not stocked frequently depends on the delivery conditions of our suppliers and can take up to a couple weeks.

When choosing and ordering your lenses, you will be shown an indication of the expected shipping date on the product page. This may change once you have selected the parameters for your contact lenses.

Alensa non-stock products delivery times

After you have selected your specific parameters, you will be shown a new estimated shipping time for those parameters, as shown above. Please note that the „in stock“ info indicates the general availability of a product from our company. It does not necessarily mean that your unique combination will be in stock. Please only refer to the expected shipping date revealed next to the drop-down menus for shipping information pertaining to your specific order. Any expected delay in delivery will be reconfirmed when you go to your shopping basket, and again in the order confirmation e-mail. The customer will be made aware when only part of his order is in stock at the time of order confirmation, and the order will be sent only when all products are available.

Orders containing both in-stock and non-stock goods

After you have selected the correct parameters for each of your desired products and before finalizing and paying for the order, please pay very close attention to each estimated delivery time for each individual product in your shopping basket.

By confirming and completing payment for the order, the customer agrees that the entire order will be shipped only after all products are in stock. The dispatching of stock products before the dispatching of non-stock products will only be allowed under special circumstances. If desired, the customer can pay an extra delivery fee (equal to regular delivery costs) to receive the stock goods before the non-stock goods.

Problems with delivery

DHL Express requires a signature upon delivery. Please ensure someone will be present at your delivery address during business hours Monday - Friday.

We are not responsible for any delay in delivery caused by our logistical partners or situations beyond our control such as weather, holidays, etc. Please bear in mind we are providing an estimated delivery date suggested by our delivery partners. In rare situations, some parcels can arrive outside of the suggested timeframe. To ensure the smoothest possible delivery, please provide your complete address information (street name, house number, postal code and city) and a telephone number so our logistics partners can reach you, if necessary. Once your order has been shipped, you will receive a track and trace number where you can follow your shipment online. Do not hesitate to contact us if you notice any problems in the track and trace. Our customer service representatives will handle your questions promptly and efficiently.

If a parcel cannot be delivered for any reason, it may be held in a local post office of logistics centre for redelivery or collection. If unclaimed, the parcel may be returned to us or destroyed. Therefore, it is the buyer's responsibility to ensure the parcel will be received at the given address and to communicate with the delivery company directly with any inquiries once the parcel is in transit or stored. Destroyed parcels will not be replaced or refunded.

Claim protocol

Should a parcel be determined to be lost, missing, or delivered incorrectly, we will initiate a claim with our delivery partner(s) on your behalf. In order to initiate the claim, two confirmations are necessary: 1.) a signed affidavit from the customer stating that the parcel was not received; 2.) verification from the delivery company that the parcel has been mishandled.

Once the claim is in progress, we will quickly issue you a refund or send a new order, as you prefer. We cannot process refunds or send new parcels while a current parcel is in transit and until it is officially declared lost by the courier. Please be aware that each delivery company follows a different protocol, and may require a period up to 21 days to investigate and verify lost or misdirected parcels.

Damaged Packaging

Contact lenses and accessories are delivered in a sturdy container of sufficient size, thus you can be sure you receive your shipment undamaged and in good condition. However, if the box is damaged upon delivery, DO NOT ACCEPT the package from the logistical partner and specify the reason in the delivery protocol, such as „substantial damage to the box,“ „liquid leak“ etc. Please contact us immediately so we can quickly respond to the problem and provide you with a new delivery.

People may need something urgently and not receivong the products on time while paying more for the delivery it's really really not fair and i cannot even find a number to call to make a complain. But i hope other people who look at the comments see that. So be carefull don't pay for dhl delivery cause you're not gonna receive your order in 1,2 days .


Thank you for taking time to leave a reply. Delivery with DHL takes 1-2 business days after dispatch. This is why your parcel will not arrive on a weekend. If you wish to discuss this further, you can call us on 0203 514 5586.


It is not fair to pay for dhl delivery and receive it in 3 days.If i would have known that they are not coming 1 or 2 days i would've selected the normal delivery why should i pay more for nothing??? I'll never ever order from you again.


Thanks for your reply but it doesn’t make sense that you have such a discrepancy between the prices in your UK and Irish store, the one difference I’ve highlighted is huge and if you were serious about good customer service you’d address it. I won’t be using you into the future as a result.


Thanks for your reply about shipping to Ireland... I looked at the Irish site, for 90 acuvue trueye lens it's €69.99 but the same lens are £45.97 on the UK site... that's a huge difference even with the exchange rate, can I get the UK price locked in?


Thanks for your comment.

We are unable to match prices on our Ireland e-store with our UK e-store. However, if you are able to find a lower price on another e-store in Ireland, we will be able to price match, providing it meets our lowest price guarantee policy.


Hi I'm living in the UK but I need to my contacts delivered to Ireland as I'll be there on holiday.. do you deliver to Ireland?


Thanks for leaving a comment. We do not ship to Ireland from this site but you are able to order from our Ireland e-store here.


Hi, Do you deliver to the United Arab Emirates. If so is VAT still payable? Thanks


Thank you very much for your comment.

At this time, we do not ship to UAE. We do have individual e-stores in many European countries, you can see the full list here:


hello, do you deliver to bulgaria?

HI, Do you deliver to Gibraltar via DHL?


Thank you for your comment. Unfortunately due to our courier restrictions we are unable to deliver to Gibraltar at this time.


hello, are you delivering to other EU countries? Lithuania? I can`t place the order :(


Hello, Unfortunately we are not able to deliver to Lithuania at this time. Please check with us in the future, as we are constantly striving to expand throughout Europe to serve you.


Shipment returned to origin in the middle of transit, no new tracking information has been provided since or goodwill gesture when order was placed 8 days ago. I'm a new customer and this isn't encouraging.


Hi Natalie, our apologies for the delay. Your parcel has been resent yesterday.


Great experience with DHL delivery. Rapid and reliable.


Very good product prices, fast delivery and as described.. Cannot complain :)
