Contact lenses

Contact lenses can be advertised on Yandex.Direct.

Your ads and the information on your site must meet all legal requirements. Your ads must not, for example:

  • target minors

  • Give the impression that you do not need to see a doctor in order to select contact lenses

  • Give individuals with normal vision the impression that wearing glasses is necessary

  • Present research results as a direct recommendation to wear glasses

Text ads will automatically have a warning added: “Contraindications apply. Consult a doctor.”. The text of the warning does not depend on the content of the specific ad and cannot be changed. You must add this warning to image ads yourself. More information about warnings.

Your ads must correspond to the legislation of the countries where you want to serve them.

According to the Russian national product classification, contact lenses are medical products. For this reason, certain documents are required to place ads for them.

When should documents be sent?

You can send documents at any time after your ads have been sent for moderation. If ads are rejected due to an absence of required documents, then they will be re-evaluated after documents are submitted. If your ads pass moderation, they will be accepted for display. If additional information is required, we will contact you.

Required documents
  • A copy of the registration certificate for the medical device.

  • A copy of the certificate or declaration of compliance for the advertised medical device.

If you are advertising a device related to medical technology and produced in the Russian Federation, you must also provide a copy of the license to manufacture and perform maintenance on medical devices (all pages, including appendices).

If you are advertising multiple medical devices, you must also provide a letter of guarantee showing that you have all the required documents. The letter should be drawn up in strict compliance with Yandex's rules.

If you are advertising products and services across several categories (for example, contact lenses and opthalmologic exams), you must provide documents for each of them.

How and where should documents be sent?

Send copies of prepared documents via the feedback form below (include your ad campaign or order number).

The original of the letter of guarantee can be sent to:

  • Yandex Europe AG, Werftestrasse 4, P/O box 3639, 6002 Lucerne 2 Universitaet, Switzerland – for those who filled out a letter of guarantee for Yandex Europe AG
