Returns Policy

CONTACT LENS RETURNS AND REFUND POLICY
We will provide a refund for returned contact lenses provided the boxes of contact lenses arrive un-opened, un-marked and un-damaged. The contact lenses must be returned within 60 days from the date of purchase.

Our policy lasts 60 days. If 60 days have gone by since your purchase, unfortunately we can’t offer you a refund or exchange.

Your refund will be processed within 14 days of product being returned. A re-stocking and administration fee of $30 and any shipping fees will be deducted for all returned products. Unless we have processed your order incorrectly, we do not refund any costs involved in returning products.

If you change your mind about your purchase and notify us before your order has been actioned by Visique on High Street & Main Optometrists then your transaction amount, after transaction fees of 5.5% and shipping costs (if applicable) have been deducted, will be refunded to a valid credit card you supply.

RETURNS PROCESS
Email us at contactlenses@visique.co.nz and advise us you would like to return a product. Please provide us with your order number from your purchase and reason for return. We will provide a return address and a Return Authority Number.

To complete your return, we require a copy of your order, receipt or proof of purchase.

Once your return is received and inspected, we will send you an email to notify you that we have received your returned item. We will also notify you of the approval or rejection of your refund.

If you are approved, then your refund will be processed, and a credit will automatically be applied to your credit card or original method of payment within 14 days.

LATE OR MISSING REFUNDS
If you haven’t received a refund yet, first check your bank account again.

Then contact your credit card company, it may take some time before your refund is officially posted.

Next contact your bank. There is often some processing time before a refund is posted.

If you’ve done all of this and you still have not received your refund yet, please contact us at contactlenses@visique.co.nz.

DEFECTIVE PRODUCTS
If you have any problems with products purchased from us at any time please let us know immediately. If any products are determined to be defective by the manufacturer or distributor we will replace them.

Visique on High Street & Main Optometrists makes no warranty, express or implied beyond the manufacturer’s / distributor’s warranty regarding any products sold, including any implied warranties of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose. Any claim is limited to the value of the product supplied.

DELIVERY
For contact lens products held in stock, normal delivery time is 2-3 working days where you have supplied your full, correct prescription and delivery information. For contact lenses that are ordered in, normal delivery time is 4-5 working days where you have supplied the full, correct prescription and delivery information.

Some contact lenses such as toric lenses (for astigmatism correction) can take longer; in these cases you will be notified with an expected delivery time.

Visique on High Street & Main Optometrists endeavours to meet these delivery schedules, but will not be held responsible for any delays due to incomplete prescription or delivery information, courier deliveries, or product shortages. If there is a delay on supplying your order we will advise you by email and / or text as soon as possible. You will receive a confirmation email and / or text when your products have been dispatched.

If the products are not received within 5 working days of the dispatched confirmation email it is your responsibility to contact us so the goods may be traced. If you fail to advise us within the 5 working days that the products have not arrived, compensation will not be available for lost goods.

Deliveries will not be made on weekends or public holidays. All orders are shipped via traceable courier. If your purchase is being couriered please provide us with a physical day time address where there will be someone present to sign for your purchase. If no one is available to sign for the package, a calling card will be left in your letterbox, or at the address supplied if possible, advising you of alternative delivery options (Please note that delivery to a P.O. Box may cause delays).

If you have selected Urban, rather than Rural, for shipping to a Rural Delivery (RD) address, your order will be placed once the payment has been received for Rural shipping, or you have provided a non-Rural Delivery (RD) address for shipping. If you are not sure whether NZ Post considers your address rural or urban, please visit https://www.nzpost.co.nz/tools/address-postcode-finder.
