Q. Should I be concerned about the risk of contracting the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) from a package or product shipping from South Korea?

According to the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), "currently there is no evidence to support the transmission of COVID-19 associated with imported goods and there have not been any cases of COVID-19 in the United States associated with imported goods." You can read more about this, and other frequently asked questions answered by the CDC here. [Hyperlink to https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/faq.html]

In addition, the World Health Organization (WHO) has stated that: "It is safe. People receiving packages from China are not at risk of contracting the new coronavirus." (sourced from Twitter, Feb. 1, 2020)


Q. Do I need to have a vision check before ordering color contact lenses?
A. If you are using contact lenses for the first time, ask your optometrist for confirmation. To check your eye health, please visit your optometrist at least every two years.

Q. How long my order will be processed?
A. We ship from our warehouse in South Korea. Order processing time requires at least 1 - 3 business days to exclude weekends and public holidays. Please note this can take longer during our sale periods and if an item you ordered is out of stock order processing times may be delayed.

Q. Can I get the prescription for colored contacts the same as my glasses?
A. No. Please consult your optometrist for the exact prescription of your contact lenses.

Q. I can not find a product prescription option.
A. If your prescription is not on the list, the prescription means a temporary out of stock.

Q. How do I change the shipping address of my order?
A. Please contact us if the shipping address has changed. It is not possible to change the shipping address after 24 hours after your order or after your order has been shipped. If you change the default shipping address for "Account," it will not be reflected in recent orders.


Q. Circle lenses stuck in the glass bottle.
A. Gently shake the bottle upside down left and right repeatedly until the lenses came off. Or if you have tweezers for contact lenses, you can also use that to take out the lenses. You can also use a cotton bud by dipping cotton bud directly in the bottle to take the lenses out. Please ensure to remove it carefully.

Q. I can't wear it because it's painful and hurting my eyes.
A. If you wear it on the back of a color contact lens to your eyes, it can cause pain. The front of the lens must be checked and worn. Then test for 3-4 days. If the problem is not resolved, please send us the front picture of both lenses. However, the picture must be large and clear.

Q. Why are there „R“ printed on the colored part of the contact?
A. The front is marked with R. This mark makes it easy to distinguish the front and back sides.

Q. I have just received my lenses, but I noticed that the color is not the same as what I have been purchased before. What makes the lens color become darker or lighter than before?
A. We always restock our product when it happens to be out of stock. The new batch will not be the same as the previous one. This is due to a different batch of manufacturing. The design will remain the same but the color might be slightly different in a new batch.

Q. What is Silicone Hydrogel lenses?
A. Silicone hydrogel contact lenses are advanced soft lenses that allow more oxygen to pass through the lens to the cornea than regular soft ("hydrogel") contacts. They are healthier than regular soft lenses because they allow up to 6 times more oxygen to pass through them and increased oxygen transmission results in better overall eye health.

Q. Why is my order separated into multiple packages?

A. Delivery to these locations is available with standard mail. Unfortunately, products cannot be shipped to these addresses by express mail.

Q. Why my tracking status is 'origin post is preparing shipment' and stays the same for quite some time?
A. If you are an American customer, you will frequently see this tracking status. For your information, this status means the products are on their way. This is because USPS does not update the status regularly on the status. The status will be changed once the products are delivered. Your patience is greatly appreciated in this context. For registered mail users, please be reminded that shipping days are between 14 to 25 business days.

Q. I haven't received my package, what should I do?

A. The best way is to contact your post office. If you still can not confirm, please wait up to 30 days (up to 60 days in winter). Delivery may be delayed due to post office strike, customs inspection, natural disasters, etc. If you still have problems, please contact us.

Q. Why USPS status always show ‘Origin Post is Preparing Shipment'?
A. This means the products have been shipped to the United States. Currently, the products are on their way to the recipient's address. Please be reminded Global international mail will take 14 to 25 days of shipping time. Especially in the United States, USPS, the tracking status will always stay the same and will be upgraded only when the products are delivered. Therefore, your understanding is greatly appreciated as the update of Global international mail is less frequent in USPS.

Q. What does it mean when tracking status says ‘Hold In ISC/ Custom Dept'?
A. This means the parcel is holding for checkup or taxation purposes in the countries. Hence please expect delay under these circumstances.
