Colour and Description
We have made every effort to display as accurately as possible the colours of our products that appear at the Site. However, as the actual colours you see will depend on your monitor, we cannot guarantee that your monitor's display of any colour will be accurate. We have attempted to be as accurate as possible. However, we do not warrant that the product descriptions are accurate, complete, reliable, current, or error-free. If a product offered by the Site is not as described, your sole remedy is to return it in unused condition. We accept only unopened and intact boxes of contact lenses.
By law, customers in the European Union have the right to withdraw from the purchase of an item within seven working days of the day after the date the item is delivered. However, we give you 14 days.

The right of withdrawal, as mentioned above, does not apply to perishable goods. Furthermore, the right to withdraw from the contract does not arise if the consumer has concluded a contract for the supply of goods in a sealed package, which the consumer has removed from the package and for hygienic reasons it is not possible to return. Except for complaints, only intact, packaged contact lenses, solutions, eye drops and other dioptric products can be returned.

Are the lenses already unpacked?
Since August 2012, replacement of supplied lenses is even easier! If you find a damaged lens in supplied packages, you do not need to send it to us. Similarly, we do not require you to send us an empty blister on the evidence of a missing lens. Just send an e-mail to the address firstname.lastname@example.org.

You can either use the full amount of the original lenses, or the difference will be added to your Lentiamo account as credit to be used for future purchases.
