Returns & Refunds Policy


Shade Ltd.
PO Box 622

On the occasion that your order has already been processed, you are required to return the order to us in perfect condition.


Under the circumstance that you are not completely satisfied with your purchase, simply return the item/s to us in perfect, original condition within 14 days of receipt (this excludes custom made items which are only returnable if they are faulty). Glasses Station will issue a refund upon receipt, or exchange the item for a different/model colour upon your request. Please note that gift wrap costs are non-refundable.

To ensure a speedy refund or exchange please complete the form provided here and enclose this form with your returned item.

Please note:

  • When you have received your order, please double check that the sent goods are in perfect condition. On the rare occasion that there is a problem please notify us straight away so our customer service team can advise on how to proceed.
  • Each item ordered is your responsibility until it reaches us at Glasses Station. For your own protection, we advise that you send your returned goods via a delivery service that offers insurance for the value of the goods.
  • Should you be returning from OUTSIDE THE EU, you MUST NOT USE COURIER SERVICES. Such services will incur excessive clearance fees and as a result Glasses Station will either charge these fees back to you or refuse delivery. Upon the parcel you must ensure the value is listed as “ZERO” and that “RETURNED GOODS” is clearly written upon both the form and parcel itself, as Glasses Station cannot accept such parcels that incur duty charges.
  • On the rare occasion that your item is received in faulty condition, you are required to notify Glasses Station in writing within 7 days of receipt of the product received.
  • Glasses Station will not cover for returns postage unless the wrong item is received through fault of Glasses Station, or if the item received is confirmed as faulty.
  • All returns must be sent to Shade Ltd, PO Box 622, Bury, BL8 9NY


Please contact our Returns department on 0844 848 7878 in the unlikely event that the item you have received is faulty. Upon contacting please quote your name, address, order number, the reason for return, details of the product and whether you would like a refund or exchange/replacement. Our customer service team will then advise on the returns procedure for this circumstance. If it is the case that your item has been received in a faulty condition, you are required to notify us in writing within 7 days of receipt of the product.


If the item received does not correspond with the item that was ordered, please contact our Returns team on 0844 848 7878 quoting your name, address, order number, reason for return, details of the product and whether you require a refund or replacement item.

Our website states a description of all goods. Whilst there are no changes to the supplied goods, in some cases it is possible that there are some minor variations to the specification/description of the goods which comes as a result of necessary changes made by the manufacturers of the parts supplied which in turn form part of the goods.


During the ordering process, you must provide us with details of the relevant, most up-to-date prescription that is to be applied to the goods. The prescription you provide must have been supplied to you by a Registered Medical Practitioner or Registered Ophthalmic Optician as the result of an eye examination undertaken by them, within the last 2 years.

The prescription you enter during the ordering process will be relied upon and the goods provided will include lenses matching the exact prescription that you have submitted.

Once ordered, prescription lenses are classed as a bespoke item and as a result cannot be refunded or cancelled.

Please consult a Registered Medical Practitioner or Registered Ophthalmic Optician before placing an order if you are unsure of the relevant prescription to be applied to the goods.

Unless you provide us with your average Pupillary Distance ‘PD,’ we will use the average PD provided by fully qualified Dispensing Opticians to complete your order. Therefore by agreeing to these terms and conditions you are agreeing to let us the appropriate average PD of 65mm, unless otherwise stated. To obtain your PD before ordering please consult your optician.

Please note the lenses we use in prescriptions are our own ophthalmic lenses and not those of the frame brand, therefore these lenses will not include the brand logo unless you opt for Ray-Ban Genuine Lenses at checkout.

To order prescription lenses from Glasses Station you must be over the age of 18 and not registered partially sighted, blind, or be ordering on behalf of someone under the age of 18.

On the occasion that a certain prescription and frame combination incurs an extra charge in order to be glazed, our customer service team will notify you of this before your lenses are glazed.
