We here at ContactsforLess.ca STRONGLY RECOMMEND THAT EACH AND EVERY CUSTOMER seek the advice of a licensed Optometrist to receive a proper contact lens fitting BEFORE buying any contact lenses online. We do NOT RECOMMEND that you “try out” or “test” contact lenses by buying them online. This is both unsafe, a potential waste of money and can potentially cause damage to your eye. Always seek the advice of an eyecare professional before using any contact lens products.

What about Shipping? Shipping times? Cost? Other details please?



Our Shipping details are below:

We always ship any products that we receive or have in stock the VERY SAME DAY. However, please note that processing times can vary depending on the product. Sometimes your exact product is not “in stock” and we must have it air couriered to us from the manufacturer. A “Business Day” is defined as a weekday (Monday through Friday) that is also not a federal or provincial (statutory or “Stat”) holiday.


* We guarantee that your product will be shipped within 7 business days from the date of the order OR we will EXPRESS SHIP THE PRODUCT TO YOU FOR FREE. This means we will immediately REFUND you the cost of your express shipping and still send your product via EXPRESS SHIPPING. If you did not qualify for free shipping by purchasing at least $90 of products in your order, then we will refund the difference between Express Shipping ($12.99) and Standard Shipping ($7.99) which is refund of $5.00. Also please note that a “Business Day” is defined as a weekday (Monday through Friday) that is also not a federal or provincial (statutory or “Stat”) holiday.

Need a “Signature Required”? Just tell us in your order notes!

Do you ship to the U.S.A.?

We currently do not.  Sorry!  Shipping contact lenses across the border requires a special license (as they are considered a medical device) which we’re still working on.

Why did I not get a confirmation/ tracking email from you?

If you are using Hotmail/ Live/ Outlook/ MSN as your email provider, please check your Junk folder for our emails!  Please add orders@contactsforless.ca and contact@contactsforless.ca to your address book for our emails to reach your inbox.




Please know that these specialty lenses can take a bit longer, due to the fact that they are rarely “in stock”. These types of products can often be “backordered” or be in the process of being manufactured. We will ALWAYS tell you what is going on with your order. ALWAYS!

Important: Please note that all XR lenses, Proclear Multifocal Toric, and Optima Toric are made to order especially to fit your eyes.  The estimated time for manufacturing and shipping them to us from Ireland/ UK is 3 – 6 weeks.  Rest assured that we ship out your product the same day we receive it.

2-5 Days for Processing may be applied to your shipping times but can vary with every order.

Questions? Call us at 1-855-909-2772 or email us at contact@contactsforless.ca. We are always happy to answer your questions.

*All shipping times are estimates and can vary for many reasons including (1) time of year (2) weather in Canada (3) type of lens you have ordered. Some contact lenses are rarely ordered and therefore are not always ‘in stock’ and therefore an additional 2-5 days may be required to have the lenses produced and/or shipped to us from the manufacturer. Signatures for packages are not required. However, you can request to have your package signed upon delivery by leaving a note at checkout. You MUST have a safe and secure location where your package or a delivery notice can be securely left for you.

We also recommend requesting a signature on delivery if you are concerned about the package otherwise being left in a location subject to extreme temperatures (such as freezing cold mailboxes in winter).  (Simply say ‘signature required’ in the customer note when ordering.)

If your product is stolen or lost in transit, we will always do everything we can to assist you. We are always here to help and to make sure your ordering and receiving is as smooth and as fast as possible. However please note that Contactsforless.ca is NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR INADEQUATE MAIL DELIVERY OPTIONS and is NOT LIABLE FOR LOST OR STOLEN PACKAGES. If your package cannot be delivered due to the customer not having a safe and secure mail box or mail facility, we will not replace the shipment or refund the payment. Any failures to deliver result in an investigation being filed with Canada Post and can result in at least 20 days before a resolution is determined.
