I am about to have a new pair of glasses. Do you have any optometry to recommend? I live in Vancouver.

Costco!! If you are not a member then pay the $55 membership which may allow you to save far more for exam & glasses as well as little to no upsell pressure on useless eyeglass "features". My last appt cost $25, eyeglasses $50-75 complete with frames & plastic lenses still 3 years later good as new, whereas a friend refused to go to Costco optometrist & paid over $1,000 for needless brand & features hype. I seem to also see better given errors I get from various sources of things read, near to far. So much for $1000 glasses. Of course there are variables but if your needs are simple, Costco had been great. Also use Clearly.ca for custom contact lens Rx & also once for computer use eyeglasses on sale which Costco gave me Rx print out for.

Eye health also checked anually by Opthamologist (specialist) & was given some same info by Costco optometrist.

Is Costco membership permanent?

There's also a Clearly store in downtown, would be cheaper than the other eyeglass stores.
