Caution: To avoid irritation or more serious disease to your eyes, we recommend an annual or semi-annual check-up with your Eye Care Specialist. You must be a previous contact lens wearer before ordering from our website, Desiolens.com. If you have never worn contact lenses before, we recommend that you visit your Eye Care Specialist to establish tolerance to contact lenses first. All of our products are produced in full compliance with The European Economic Community (E.E.C.)
1. GENERAL CONDITIONS
All Terms and Conditions are applied to agreements made on the Desiolens.com website with written acceptance by Desio™. These conditions are formally accepted by the Purchaser at the time of purchase. With confirmation of the order, you declare as the Purchaser that you agree to these conditions. Any changes to the Terms and Conditions shall be considered valid only after written acceptance by Desiolens.com.
After ordering, the Purchaser will receive an email with their confirmation and order summary. After acceptance by the Purchaser, the order will be considered binding.
DesioLens.com offers its customers a unique price by NOT charging any shipping costs. You will receive Desio™ color contact lenses at the same price, no matter your country of residence.
If a Purchaser submits a wrong or insufficient delivery address which causes a return of the product to us, the Purchaser agrees to pay 12 Euro to Desiolens.com via Paypal for reshipping and repacking. Desiolens.com agrees to cover the shipping charge only once. In the event that a parcel is returned to our headquarters and the customer requests a refund, the customer is responsible for the initial shipping and handling fees.
Our shipping method utilizes Registered Mail, including the tracking number (RS) for your order. Purchasers agree to track their own orders. Check our Shipping Section for details.
3.1 Product Availability and Expected Dispatch Times
Please expect 5 days for Plano and Standard prescription and 4 weeks for Special prescription deliveries. In case of Toric lenses (lenses for myopic astigmatism) the delivery time is 6 weeks. We cannot offer any guarantee and the time indicated is approximate. Dispatch days are Monday through Friday and do not include weekends and public holidays. Once your order has been shipped, you will receive a confirmation email which will include your tracking number as proof the consignment was sent. It is necessary to wait a few days before tracking your order as all data must be uploaded by the postal system.
Delivery times are approximate and not exact. Any delay does not constitute the rescission of the contract between Desiolens.com and the Purchaser. If insufficient data is given by the Purchaser to process the order, we will not be responsible for delays in delivery. In case of delays on our part beyond the reasonable time, we will issue a refund to the Purchaser.

Delivery times will vary depending on your location. The average delivery time with Registered Mail is:
- Europe: 8-15 business days
- United States: 15-20 business days
- Other Countries: 20-30 business days
Please note that delivery time is approximate. We do not guarantee delivery times.
Desiolens.com takes no responsibility for delays caused by the quality of the postal service in each country.
All products are sent as Registered Mail and the Purchaser must sign personally to receive their own goods. No one else may sign on their behalf.
IMPORTANT NOTE TO ALL CUSTOMERS FROM UK:
Due to problems with the quality of the Royal Mail Service, we do not receive tracking information or updates about shipments. For that reason, your shipment may be held at Heathrow Worldwide DC Centre for weeks.
IF THIS IS NOT ACCEPTABLE TO YOU, PLEASE DO NOT PLACE THE ORDER.
If you still wish to place an order, please accept it will be your decision and acknowledge this situation.
3.3 Import Duties, Sales Taxes or Value Added Taxes
Some countries may charge import and/or sales taxes on contact lenses when the lenses arrive at Customs in the destination country. Desio™ does not have any control over this and it is the Purchaser’s responsibility to pay any applicable taxes as required at the time of delivery in his/her country.
Once the item has been sent and the Purchaser has received their tracking number, the Purchaser agrees to take over full responsibility for delivery.
All prices of the items on our website are in Euro currency with VAT 4% (prescription) or 22% (non-prescription) included and guaranteed at time of order. Shipping charges are covered by Desiolens.com.

6. CLAIMS, RETURNS OR EXCHANGES
The Purchaser has the right to withdraw from any contract within 10 working days (dls 22 May 1999, 185 art. 5) from Postmark. This right does not apply to packages that have been opened, or to the lens construction (toric), except if the goods are damaged or defective. We cannot replace the lens or issue a refund if you do not like the color or the parameters you have ordered are not suitable for your eyes. Customers are required to consult with their Eye Care Specialist BEFORE ordering from our store. We can only accept returns if the lenses are found to be factory defective.
In the case that you receive factory defective lenses, we will exchange them free of charge. Defective contact lenses may only be exchanged for the exact same lens model, color and prescription.
In the case that you receive defective lenses, you must proceed as follows:
- 1. Contact Desio’s Customer Service Department by logging into your account and submit a ticket within five business days from the receipt of your shipment.
- 2. Return the defective lenses to Desio, including everything that came in the package with your shipment such as the box, blister and labels.
- 3. If you have opened the blisters, place the lenses in a lens case with contact lens solution and return them to us with the box and include the opened blisters.
- 4. Returning defective lenses must be sent within five business days from the time that the customer initially contacted Desio’s Customer Service Department to report the defect.
Insured shipments damaged by the Carrier are not subject to refund. We recommend that you do not accept deliveries which are obviously damaged. For detailed information about returns, please visit our return policy section. The costs of returning the goods to Qualimed will be paid by the Purchaser. The purchaser agrees and accepts this policy.
7. RESPONSIBILITY AND WARRANTIES
All items sold on DesioLens.com are delivered in original packaging and in accordance with the information sent by the Purchaser. We are not responsible for errors in the information made by the Purchaser at the time of order. The responsibility of proper use of the lenses and following the instructions included in each product, falls upon the Purchaser. It is up to the Purchaser to follow proper maintenance, seek eye care and to regulate the tolerability of their own lenses. For this reason, we recommend a visit to your Eye Care Specialist every 6 months and that you follow the advice given in the instructions accompanying our product.
