Discounts are unable to be applied to any online only/sale/promotional item. Only one coupon code per order is able to applied. This also applies to redeemed rewards offers.

Price Match Guarantee

American Lenses’s Price Match Guarantee (PMG) means we will beat the lower price found by 1% of the total price. The price being matched must include all shipping, processing, and tax being charged by the competitor. The PMG is not a price match against a competitor's per box price. The PMG is only valid against everyday prices and cannot be utilized against a promotional or sale price, a quantity discount, discontinued product, clearance items, or a membership discount. American Lenses is unable to price match a competitor's price based on a manufacturer's or independent site rebate. Prior pricing obtained at American Lenses is unable to be utilized as a price match for a current order. American Lenses is able to uphold the PMG for up to 7 days from the purchase date. A maximum of 3 price matches can be performed within a 90 day period. For glasses, the Price Match Guarantee is only applicable for the same style & color of frame. Lens options are not included in the price match. American Lenses’s PMG excludes Ray-Ban. The Price Match Guarantee by American Lenses is subject to change at any time without notice.

Promotional/Sale Pricing

All 'promotional', 'online only', and 'sale' pricing is subject to change without notice. Promotionally priced products ordered in succession (Example: Four identical orders for one box of lenses) will be treated as duplicate orders, cancelled, and refunded back to the payment method provided at checkout. All promotionally priced products are indicated as such on the product page.

Shipping

For contact lenses, American Lenses offers four types of shipping methods: Free 5-10 Business Day Ground, 3-7 Business Day Ground for $7.95, 2nd Business Day Air and Next Business Day Air. Orders to P.O. Boxes will ship via USPS. Apart from custom or made to order lenses, any order placed, and prescription verified before 1:00 PM Eastern Time will usually ship the same day. Orders placed after business hours will be processed the following business day. Business hours are defined as Monday thru Friday, 9 AM - 8PM eastern time. It will take 1 – 2 business days for tracking information to generate online. American Lenses, Inc. is not responsible for package delays due to weather conditions or other unforeseen, uncontrollable circumstances. For glasses, because American Lenses may use third party suppliers for some product fulfillment, American Lenses cannot guarantee that all orders will ship within the aforementioned time periods. Shipping times on glasses will therefore vary and orders may take at least 30 days to arrive. All frames shown as sunglasses will arrive as sunglasses. Glasses orders are only shipped with the prescription lenses ordered. The original manufacturer lenses are not shipped with the purchase.

Prescription Verification

American Lenses follows the Fairness to Contact Lens Consumers Act (FCLA) when verifying prescriptions. According to the law, American Lenses is required to verify the contact lens prescription for each order before we can process and ship the order. If a customer faxes or emails us a copy of their prescription with all the required information, we will use that prescription to verify the order. If a customer does not provide us with a copy of their prescription we will contact their doctor to verify the prescription. FCLA states that doctors have eight business hours to respond to our verification request. If we do not hear back from the doctor within the eight business hour timeframe, FCLA states that this is to be treated as a passive verification and the order will be deemed to be verified as correct by the doctor and we will proceed to process and ship the order.

Pupillary Distance (PD) for Eye Glasses

In order to experience the best results, we need your PD measurement, which measures the distance between the center of your pupils. You may either ask your optician to provide your PD during your eye exam, or you may measure it on your own with a tape measure (using millimeters). American Lenses makes no warranties as to the effectiveness of self-measuring your PD. If you do not provide American Lenses with your PD measurement, we will use an average PD measurement for your glasses. Please ask your optician for more information.
