Q: What are the types of lenses you are selling online?
A: Customers who buy any regular-priced or discounted frames online are entitled to get FREE 1.50 OPULENS BASIC, which corrects distance (far) vision or reading (near) vision, and includes UV protection and anti-glare features. Customers also have the option to upgrade their lenses to:

1.6 OPULENS BLUE COAT – Perfect for digital and computer users, this lens blocks high-frequency blue light emitted from digital devices to protect one’s eyes.
1.6 OPULENS LUTINA ASPHERIC – These are special lenses that cut out 94% of the harmful high-energy violet light rays that can damage the lutein of the eyes, and may cause macular degeneration.
Eyewear Ordering at Vision Express
Q: What do the order statuses mean?
A: An order may be listed as:
PENDING – This status shows when you select either the Cash-on-Delivery or Bank Deposit mode of payment. For orders made through bank deposit, this status will change to “Processing” once the payment is received.
ON HOLD – This status appears when the payment using a credit card or a debit card failed, and no charge is made.
In such scenario, the customer can expect an email from the Customer Service Team to confirm if the customer wants to continue with the credit card payment. If so, we will send an Ipay88 link to the customer so that the customer can proceed with the payment. Otherwise, the order will be canceled if no response is received after 72 hours.
PROCESSING – This means we have started processing your order, and that it is being validated and prepared for delivery.
SHIPPING – This means that the order is ready to be picked up or has been picked up by our courier partner from the warehouse.
CANCELED – This means that the order will no longer be processed, and a refund of the payment made will be issued if applicable.
