Newbie to contacts

ok so I just ordered some contacts for cosplay from thedollyeye.com and I'm worried because they mentioned something about possibly having to pay customs. Has anyone in america had to pay customs on an order from thedollyeye.com if so, how much did it cost? And how did you pay customs? I'm really hoping I won't have to but I'm really worried that I might and then I won't know what to do.. please help!

thank you!

If you get charged customs the postal carrier will tell you and give you the bill. Then you pay it.

PS, have you been fitted for contact lenses? If you haven't then using them is putting yourself at serious risk of complains including permanent damage and blindness.

I'm really only new to colored contacts, the dolly eye style too. I wear regular contacts everyday. And the main reason I bought from thedollyeye.com is because I heard good things about them and that they sell them in prescription.

Customs are a percentage of the cost of the item plus any fees from the carrier. You could look up percentages on Google.

If I were you I would not worry about it until they get here

okay, thank you! I'm a natural worrier so I just became really nervous when I read that I might possibly have to pay it.
