Delivery and postage

How long does Auerbach & Steele Ltd take to dispatch my contact lenses?

The product pages display the typical dispatch times for each product. As Auerbach & Steele Ltd does not partially ship orders, the time required to dispatch your order will be based on the product in your order with the longest dispatch time.

Due to stock replenishment cycles, dispatch may occasionally take longer than stated on the product pages. If you are worried about the delivery of your order, phone us on 020 7349 0001 and we’ll do our best to ensure your delivery arrives as soon as possible.
