Store Policies

If you are unsure before purchasing, we are here to help guide you on fit and suitability. We do encourage you to use our trained opticians to guide you to your perfect match, you can upload or email a photo of yourself for a personalized recommendation, guidance or advice.

We make it our mission to help you find a pair you want to wear again and again if you don’t love your new purchase we are happy to accept returns that may be exchanged for a different item we have in stock or for store credit, valid for one year.

We are not required to provide a refund if you change your mind. However, in accordance with the Australian Consumer Laws you can choose a refund or exchange if an item has a major problem. This is when the item is;

  • Has a problem that would have stopped someone from buying them if they had known about it.
  • Is unsafe.
  • Is significantly different from the sample or description.
  • Doesn’t do what we said it would, or what asked for and can’t be fixed.

If the problem is not major, we will repair the item within a reasonable time.

For all returns we must be contacted within 14 days of receiving your order (21 for international orders) if you wish to submit a return request. Requests falling outside of this time frame unfortunately will not be accepted.

Returns are only accepted for full price items, including pre-orders. Items bought on sale are final and cannot be returned.

Items approved for return must arrive back to us in its original condition and in its original packaging. Product returned worn or damaged may be sent back to the customer at the discretion of Wink. 

Exchanges for items of equal or greater value than the original item/s purchased will incur additional charges including for shipping. Leftover credit for items of lesser value than the original item/s purchased will be issued as store credit once shipping costs have been accounted for.

Initial shipping fees are non-refundable for exchanges and will not be credited.

If you have purchased using Afterpay and your return qualifies for a refund you will be credited back through the original payment platform. If your return requires a credit voucher you will continue to make payments until the item is paid for and we will issue you a credit voucher as usual when we receive the return.
