If you have any questions regarding our terms and conditions or have any comments about our Website, please email us at: [email protected]
1.1 When you submit your order by clicking on the 'Place My Order’ button you are consenting to be bound by our terms and conditions contained in these Terms and Conditions and appearing elsewhere on the our Website.
1.2 Your order to us is an offer which we may or may not accept and we will not be bound by a contract with you until and unless, we have received from you all the payment details we require for the goods/services ordered by you, your payment to us has been authorised by your card issuer and we have issued an email acknowledging your order. Your order will not be processed if full payment details are not received by us.
1.3 You agree that immediately following our sending our e-mail of acknowledgment to you we may start work on the products/services you have ordered.
1.4 An order will be acknowledged via e-mail confirming your details, provided you have supplied us with a correct e-mail address, which is most important. Our e-mail will provide an order reference number for any future correspondence. All prices and charges will be calculated of those ruling at the time at which we accept your order.
1.5 For your order to be processed and delivered you must supply us with all the relevant details we request, including full delivery details, postcode and telephone number.
1.6 At our discretion from time to time, we may offer products at discounted prices. These offers are valid from the time that we introduce them to the end date of the offer and they cannot be used for purchases before the offer introduction date or after the offer end date.
1.7 In the event that you have made a purchase and the price of a product falls or is discounted due to a special offer, the price of the product at the time we accept your order shall prevail. We are unable to offer special offer discounts for purchases that have already been made at other prices.
As our special offers are often made available due to the availability of products, we may change the terms of special offers, or withdraw them altogether, at any time and without prior notice.
We also reserve the right to offer different personalised special offers and promotions and it will therefore only be possible for the customer in receipt of the special offer to redeem the discount.
1.8 Offers and products displayed on our Website are always subject to availability which may change without notice.
2.1 Payment may be made by any of the methods indicated on the payment page of our Website and will be debited when you submit your order. Payment must be made in £s sterling.

In these cases, we will need to take payment over the phone. We will email or call you in these circumstances. If you receive a message to tell you that payment has not been validated, please contact our customer service team immediately at [email protected] to ensure your order can be attended to.
Changes to your order, returns
3.1 At TONI&GUY Opticians we want to make it easy and inexpensive to purchase new glasses. If you wish to make any changes to your order please contact our customer services team as soon as possible at [email protected] We cannot guarantee to accept changes made to your order especially where we have already begun to customise goods but our policy is to allow changes as long as we are able to agree with you any consequent change in price. Any change to your order may affect the price to be paid by you and our acceptance of your requested change will then be subject to any additional price or charge being received by us.
3.2 You have no right to cancel an order for goods made to your specification for example prescription glasses or lenses provided that we have begun to manufacture or customise the goods concerned or provide any services including installation of lenses. Where you do have a right to cancel your order under the Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000 as amended you must give us notice of cancellation by e-mail. If you exercise this right after having received the goods concerned you must only return the goods to us after requesting and receiving a returns number. You are responsible for making sure the item reaches us in original condition and for any postage and insurance costs. We strongly recommend for your protection that you use a recorded delivery service.
3.3 TONI&GUY Opticians is delighted that you have shopped with us but we know that occasionally you may want to return items. You should be aware that when we begin to process your order any custom made elements of your order, e.g. prescription lenses, tints, coatings etc, which are specific to you cannot be refunded. We will process your refund as soon as we receive the returned item(s). Original postage is non refundable.
For your benefit we have extended our returns policy as follows:
ALL returns must be issued a returns number, securely packaged in their original condition [including spectacle case, lens cloth, demo/prescription lenses etc] and received by us within 7 days of the date the goods were originally dispatched. We will then issue a refund. To understand how your refund is calculated see our Refunds Policy section below. This does not affect your Statutory Rights.
Rimless frames which have had prescription lenses fitted are Non-Refundable.
We guarantee to deliver the frame you choose, glazed to the prescription specification you provide. If for any reason we fail to achieve this you should contact our customer services team as soon as possible at [email protected]. We can then issue you with a returns number and address so you may return your frames to us. We will replace them with the correct item at our discretion and in accordance with your statutory rights.
Defective or faulty materials or workmanship
We guarantee your glasses to be free from any defect arising from faulty workmanship or materials for a period of 12 months from the date of delivery to you. If a fault arises during this period you should contact our customer services team as soon as possible at [email protected]. We can then issue you with a returns number and address so you may return them to us for repair or replacement including customised parts. We can then refund the equivalent UK postage rates at our discretion and in accordance with your statutory rights.
Withdraw from Purchase
Where you are withdrawing from your purchase within 7 days of dispatch and there has been no error on our part, we will refund only the cost of the standard item(s). We will not refund the cost of customised elements like lenses or tints, postage or other services provided to you in connection with your purchase. Refunds will be made using the same method as you used for making the original purchase. Where you have selected FREE lenses or FREE hard coating we will deduct a £10.00 handling charge.
4.1 We deliver only to a valid postal address.
4.2 A recipient signature will be required for courier/ Royal Mail deliveries.
4.3 Should the recipient be away at the time of delivery, a card will be left stating attempted delivery was made. The recipient will then have to collect the package from the local depot or arrange for re-delivery.
4.4 Provided that there are no problems with your order we aim to deliver to addresses in the UK within 28 days of the date we accept your order (and sometimes for standard goods it will be possible to deliver much more quickly than this). For deliveries outside the UK the delivery period may be longer but we will always try to deliver as quickly as we can in the circumstances. Generally we use Royal Mail for delivery. We accept no liability whatsoever for any delay in delivery which has occurred due to any circumstances beyond our reasonable control and time for delivery is not of the essence.
4.5 Under normal circumstances, we will try to ensure that your order is delivered to the delivery address you provide. However, there are times when this is not possible due to problems with the address information or other difficulties. To alleviate such problems please:
Ensure that the recipient address you provide is full and accurate, including the address and postal code.
Give additional instructions to assist with difficult-to-find addresses.
Keep us informed if you find that the recipient's address or availability changes prior to the order being delivered.
We will not be responsible for any orders which are not delivered due to incorrect or incomplete information being supplied by you or due to the absence of a recipient authorised to sign by way of acknowledging receipt.
4.6 Where we have to attempt re-delivery we have the right to levy a redelivery charge.
5.1 All products and services are subject to availability, and acceptance of your order. In the event of any supply difficulties for example if a frame becomes unavailable or if the products we have received from our suppliers that are needed to make up your order do not meet our high quality standards, we will contact you in order to discuss the situation.
6.1 Neither we, nor any courier or postal service that we use shall be liable for any failure or delay in performance where such failure or delay results from any circumstances outside our reasonable control, including, but not limited to, any fire, flood, explosion, accident, adverse weather conditions, traffic congestion, mechanical breakdown, obstruction of any private or public highway, riot, government act, act of war, terrorism, act of God, or from any industrial dispute or strike whatsoever.
Where the goods you are ordering are or include prescription lenses it is very much preferable that you give us accurate details of your prescription as are required on the relevant page of our Website including the relevant pupillary distance). We will produce the lenses to the prescription details provided and will have no liability if the prescription particulars provided to us are incorrect or in any way unsuitable for you. If you are between 16 & 70 your prescription is valid for not more than 2 years and if you are over 70 it is valid for not more than 1 year. We always advise that you use such a recent prescription.
If you are not sure of any element your prescription (or of the relevant pupillary distance) or if it is more than two years since the prescription was provided to you then you are advised to consult a registered ophthalmic optician to obtain a new prescription before placing an order.
If you do not provide the pupillary distance then at our discretion we will either decline your order or we have the right to assume pupillary distances in accordance with the following:
|Distance glasses||61 mm||63 mm|
|Intermediate/VDU||59 mm||61 mm|
|Near glasses||58 mm||60 mm|
7.4 We do not supply lenses which are outside of the range -10 dioptres to + 10 dioptres (sphere) or outside 3.00 dioptres to +3.00 dioptres (cyl.) other than by special arrangement.
7.5 We can glaze your lenses to any vertical fitting height that you request. This is occasionally done for complex or high prescriptions. The vertical fitting height is the distance from the centre of your pupil to lowest edge of the frame. If you would like this to be done you can specify this in the comments section when placing your order. For this to be done you will need an Optician to measure these heights whilst you are wearing the frame model & size that you wish to buy. Unless this is specified by you we will glaze your lenses to ‘datum’ which is the mid point between the top and the bottom of the frame as per the industry norm.
At the checkout, we ask for the following personal information:
Customer email address - we use this information for the purpose of order acceptance, informing you of the order status and in the event that we need to make substitutions.
Customer full name and address - we use this information for credit card validation and for direct mailing (if you have agreed to receipt of these mailings) and of course for delivery.
