The total cost to you of the provision and dispensing of your spectacles or corrective lenses by Roger Lee Optometrists Limited is a combination of:
- A charge for professional dispensing services, being 61% of the cost
- A charge for goods beings 39% of the total cost
VAT at 20% is included in the goods element. The professional dispensing services are not exempt from VAT and therefore attract no VAT. The split of 61% and 39% does not necessarily reflect the actual breakdown of VATable/exempt fees for a particular individual pair of spectacles or corrective lenses.
Whilst in the interest of transparency we show prices and product costs separately we are primarily providers of clinical and professional services and have a duty of care unlike normal retailers and thus we are unable to supply frames or lenses without the attendant professional charges.
