General Terms and Conditions of LENSVISION AG
1. Validity of Terms and Conditions and Conclusion of Contract
1.1 The following general terms and conditions apply for all deliveries arranged between us and you as the customer in form applicable at the time of the order.
The following conclusion of contract rules apply for all orders made via the www.lensvision.ch web shop (hereinafter referred to as “web shop”) and all other order methods made available by us currently or in the future (namely orders made by email or messenger services such as WhatsApp). In the case of a conclusion of contract, a contract shall be entered into with:
hereinafter referred to as “LENSVISION”.
1.2 The display of goods in our web shop does not represent any legally binding contractual offer of any kind; instead it is merely a request to you as the customer to order goods and represents a non-binding online catalogue. By clicking on the “Order” button after completely filling out the order page, it will be understood that you have offered to conclude a purchase contract. Your order shall be binding for seven (7) days. After submitting your order, you will receive an automated confirmation email (order confirmation) regarding the order you have placed with us, but this shall not represent an acceptance of the contract. The purchase contract shall be concluded once you have received an acceptance of order or, at the latest, when the goods are dispatched. Should the execution of an order only take place after the above-mentioned seven days have passed, the goods delivery shall be regarded as a new offer to conclude a purchase contract. You may accept this offer either expressly, or implicitly by accepting and using the goods delivered. In this respect, we will not require an acceptance of order.
1.3 Should we become aware after the conclusion of the contract that the goods will not be available from the supplier in the foreseeable future, we reserve the right to withdraw from the contract. In this case, we will inform you promptly once we become aware that the goods are not available and we will immediately return any payment already received.
1.4 When a purchase contract is concluded, we at LENSVISION do not store the contract text. However, we will send you your order details by email and save these in our customer area. Previous orders can be accessed under “My account —> Order History” after logging in.
2. Offer Description and Prescription/Eye Correction
2.1 LENSVISION endeavours to make its product descriptions as accurate as possible. For this purpose, original statements from manufacturers and suppliers are used, but no responsibility is taken for their correctness. Changes made by the manufacturer may occur without prior notice.
2.2 The possibility of deviations from the images of individual products cannot be excluded, especially with images of coloured contact lenses, as these depend on the colour of the users eyes. LENSVISION strives to keep images as up-to-date as possible.
2.3 Colours and patterns of spectacle frames supplied may differ from images on the internet. Colour tints of spectacle frames may also differ from images on the internet.
2.4 LENSVISION does not determine or test individual customers’ visual impairments. Details of vision defects are required to order contact lenses or corrective glasses (correction values, prescription details or eyeglass specifications). The customer is responsible for entering these details correctly. LENSVISION recommends regular consultation with an optician for follow-up testing of the correction values, prescription updates, and medical examinations. LENSVISION accepts no liability for false information.
3. Prices and Payment
3.1 Prices are indicated in Swiss Francs (CHF) and include statutory VAT.
3.2 The customer may pay on account, credit card (Visa, MasterCard, Maestro), PostFinance, PayPal, wint or prepayment.
3.3 LENSVISION reserves the right to update prices at any time. For customers, the prices indicated in the web shop at the time of order apply. Should the prices in the web shop be increased or reduced, the price at the time of order shall apply, even if the contract has not been confirmed.
3.4 Vouchers and special discounts cannot be combined and can only be accepted at a rate of one per household.
3.5 If the amount to be paid by the customer cannot be credited to us due to an insufficient credit card or account balance, or if it is charged back for other reasons, LENSVISION is entitled to charge the customer a fixed sum of 80 CHF to compensate charge-back costs. This fixed sum can be increased in individual cases whereby a higher loss has been inflicted.
3.6 Until the respective amount invoiced for a delivery (final and unconditional credit note for the total purchase cost including any additional costs) has been completely paid, the goods delivered shall remain the property of LENSVISION. An obligation to deliver on the part of LENSVISION shall only exist when the complete amount has been paid. Should the amount not be paid completely within 30 days of acceptance of order being issued, LENSVISION reserves the right to withdraw from the contract.
3.7 The customer shall bear all costs accrued by Lensvision as a result of the default in payment. In particular, the client owes a default interest of 5% per annum to Lensvision, as well as a flat-rate fee of CHF 15 per reminder. At any time, Lensvision may invite third parties for the collection of payment. The customer will have to pay minimum charges directly to any third party engaged and, in addition, compensate them for their incurred expenses that are necessary for the collection.
4.1 LENSVISION endeavours to maintain the shortest possible delivery times. However, the delivery times given in the order confirmation are non-binding.
4.2 LENSVISION is entitled to make partial deliveries. In this case, delivery costs will only be invoiced to the customer once.
4.3 If the customer’s address changes, he/she is obliged to inform LENSVISION without delay. If the customer does not notify us, the delivery address shall be the last known address. The customer shall bear all costs for address verification and any additional costs.
4.4 The risk of accidental loss or damage of the goods sold shall only be transferred to the customer once the purchased goods have been handed over to the customer.
4.5 Transport damage during delivery is insured by LENSVISION. Insurance claims can only be made as long as the customer can prove that damage has been caused by the supplier during delivery.
5.1 We guarantee a 30-day right of return for products bought from us (subject to exceptions) under the following conditions, whereby we will refund the purchase price (deductions may apply to certain products).

5.3 We also guarantee a 30-day right of return for corrective glasses, even though they are individually manufactured completely according to your needs. Within the framework of this money-back guarantee, we will return the purchase price. For corrective glasses, we will deduct a service fee from the purchase price being returned: 50.00 CHF for single vision lenses and 150.00 CHF for varifocals.
5.4. In order to make use of the return right, send the goods back to us in as-new condition within 30 days after the date of dispatch in their original packaging. We ask that you use the attached invoice/delivery note as a return note. The 30-day return window begins once the goods are sent, and the return is completed with a timely dispatch. The time the goods are dispatched is decisive in the protection of the right of return. You are to bear the costs for returning the goods. Returns must be addressed to:
5.5 The return will be accepted by us provided that the goods are in their original condition and the original invoice is attached. We reserve the right to deduct any resulting costs from the purchase price being refunded in order to cover any damage or excessive wear and tear.

In order to prevent sight impairment, the indicated wearing times (according to the packaging insert) must not be exceeded. Clean and maintain your contact lenses in accordance with the instructions of your eye doctor or optician. Please only order contact lenses that have been customised for you and for which you know the correct parameters. Do not use damaged contact lenses under any circumstances. Remove your contact lenses straight away if you experience any irritation to the eyes and consult your eye doctor or optician.

Claims from the customer regarding damage that has not been caused to the actual goods shall not be valid. Liability claims that exceed the value of the order shall not be valid. This liability disclaimer does not apply in the case of unlawful intent (deliberate damage) or gross negligence.
