Frequently Asked Questions

Booking a store visit in advance gives you a guaranteed spot in the Clearly Robson St store. You can still come in without an appointment, but it’s always a good idea to secure your spot beforehand, so you don’t have to wait in line if you happen to visit at one the downtown peak times. If you already have an eye exam booked, you don’t need a store appointment.

Routine eye exams aren’t covered by MSP for people between the ages of 19 and 64. Please visit the Government of British Columbia website for more information. 

Yes, Clearly offers direct billing online and in-store.

Visit your nearest Clearly to claim your vision insurance benefits upfront, skip the paperwork and save money on your eyewear. Whether you have workplace insurance, student coverage, or coverage through a partner or carer, you can use your benefits at your nearest Clearly.

To claim your benefits in-store, please bring your insurance information and your prescription with you. Our team will help process your direct billing claim.

If your insurance provider isn't eligible for direct billing, or if you prefer to process your claim manually, you can submit a receipt directly to your provider (along with any other required paperwork). We'll send your receipt once your order has shipped.

The cost of a full eye exam will depend on your vision needs and your optometrist’s expertise. Eye exam prices at Clearly’s partner clinic in Vancouver, Asgarpour Optometry, range as follows: 

• $95 for adults between 19 and 64  
• MSP in the BC Province provides annual coverage for children (0-18 years) 
• $20 copay with MSP coverage for seniors (65 and above) 
• Eye exam & contact lens assessments and fittings start from $125 

Please visit the Government of British Columbia website for more information. 

Most extended benefits programs offer reimbursement for eye exams, so make sure to inquire about your coverage.

The prices of our glasses and contacts are the same in-store as they are online. However, we often run exclusive in-store promotions so it’s always worth talking to our experts so we can find the best deal for you. 

If we have your contacts in stock, you can pick them up on the same day at our Clearly Robson St location. You’ll need to bring a valid contact lens prescription and show it to the team.  
Glasses orders take a little longer, as we have to create your custom lenses and fit them into your chosen frames. We can arrange to ship your glasses directly to you, or you can pick them up in-store. Typically, glasses orders take about 2 weeks. If you ordered your glasses online and want to pick them up in the store, you’ll also need to show us your valid glasses prescription.

There are two pay parking lots near Clearly Robson St, located on the corner of Arbutus and West 5th Ave. You can also find street parking along Robson St and on adjacent streets. 

An ophthalmologist is a medical doctor who specializes in eye surgeries. An optometrist, also known as an eye doctor, is your primary eye care practitioner for routine vision care: full eye exams and vision tests. It’s best to see an optometrist if you need a new glasses or contact lens prescription.  

Our local optometrists can also treat common eye conditions, such as dry eyes, glaucoma, and eye infections, and provide eye care for pre- and post-eye surgery.  

If you’re looking for an optometrist in Kitsilano, Vancouver, book an eye exam or a store visit with us online. 

An optometrist is your primary eye care practitioner for full eye exams and vision tests, glasses or contact lens prescriptions, and treatments for common eye conditions.  

An optician is a technician who mainly dispenses glasses, sunglasses, and contact lenses based on the prescriptions provided by your optometrist or ophthalmologist. They are also trained to repair or adjust your eyewear to ensure a comfortable fit. 

If you’re looking for a local optician or optometrist in Kitsilano, Vancouver, book an eye exam or a store visit with us online.

Our optometrists will perform a series of tests in a comprehensive eye exam:

  • Refractive issues: nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), astigmatism, or presbyopia
  • Overall perception: colour vision, depth perception, and eye coordination
  • Assessment of vision loss: “lazy eye” (amblyopia), glaucoma, diabetes, macular degeneration, cataracts, and keratoconus
  • Assessment of other health conditions: vascular diseases, neurological diseases, inflammatory diseases, and certain cancers

A regular eye exam every one to two years can help ensure your eyes and overall health are healthy.

On the day of your appointment for an eye exam or routine eye checkup with our optometrists, please bring with you:

  • A list of any medications that you currently use
  • All pairs of glasses that you currently use
  • If you are a contact lens wearer, please wear your glasses to the appointment (if available), and bring your contact lens boxes/foils
  • Your provincial health card

Depending on your optometrist assessment, contact lenses may be a good fit if you have nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, or presbyopia. Since contacts are medical devices and they come in different shapes, sizes, and materials, it’s best to see what your eye doctor recommends. Book an eye exam today for a valid contact lens prescription and initial contact lens fitting. 

Depending on your optometrist assessment, toric contact lenses may be a good fit if you have astigmatism. These lenses are designed with the proper shape and prescription power to correct blurry vision caused by astigmatism and allow for more object focus, which can’t be addressed by regular contacts. Book an eye exam today for a valid contact lens prescription and initial contact lens fitting.

A full eye exam is a thorough assessment of your vision quality and eye health. If you want to wear contact lenses for the first time or if you need a new prescription, you’ll need a contact lens exam.  

It includes a contact lens fitting to ensure ideal measurements for the best lens fit. If you need a new glasses prescription, a full eye exam is sufficient. Learn about the differences between contact lens and glasses prescriptions
