Frequently Asked Questions

When you book in advance, you'll have a guaranteed spot in the Clearly Rideau store. Y ou can still come in without an appointment, but we recommend booking beforehand so you don’t have to wait in line if you happen to visit at one of our busy times. If you already have an eye exam booked, you don’t need a store appointment.

Routine eye exams aren’t covered by OHIP for people between the ages of 20 and 64, unless specified by your doctor. Please visit the Government of Ontario website for more information.

We don’t currently do direct billing for eyewear or eye exams. Our team will provide you with a receipt you can use to submit a claim to your insurance provider.

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 Rideau location.

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.

There are plenty of pay parking lots at Rideau Centre!
