Frequently Asked Questions
When you book in advance, you'll have a guaranteed spot in the Clearly Queen 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 of 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 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

Visit your nearest Clearly store 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 store.
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.

- $95 for adults between 20 and 64
- OHIP provides annual coverage for children (0-19 years) and seniors (65 and above)

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 Queen 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 plenty of pay parking lots near our Queen St store. The closest one is on the corner of Richmond St W and Widmer St. There's also street parking along Queen St and the surrounding side streets.
An ophthalmologist provides medical and surgical treatments for severe eye conditions. An optometrist (or eye doctor) is your primary eye care provider for routine eye care: full eye exams and vision tests. If you need a new glasses or contact lens prescription, and treatments for common eye conditions, such as dry eyes, glaucoma, and eye infections, book an eye exam with us today. Our local optometrists can also provide eye care for before and after eye surgery.

A comprehensive eye exam provided by our optometrists includes a series of tests:
- 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 is recommended to help detect and prevent early signs of vision or overall health issues.
Here are some tips to prepare for your upcoming eye exam or routine eye checkup appointment 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’s assessment, your eye doctor may prescribe contact lenses if you have nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, or presbyopia. Since contacts are medical devices and they are made using different shapes, sizes, and materials, it’s best to see what your optometrist recommends. Book an eye exam today for a valid contact lens prescription and initial contact lens fitting.
Depending on your optometrist's assessment, your eye doctor may prescribe toric contact lenses if you have astigmatism. Regular contacts aren’t designed with the correct shape and prescription power to correct blurry vision caused by astigmatism. Book an eye exam today for a valid contact lens prescription and initial contact lens fitting.
A comprehensive eye exam examines your vision quality and eye health and helps your eye doctor determine your glasses prescription. If you’re new to contacts or you need a new prescription, a contact lens exam can help. It includes a contact lens fitting to ensure the best lens fit.
