If you’ve ever decided to buy glasses online, you know the process isn’t always as easy as it seems. If you have a prescription but don’t have details like your PD (pupil distance), it is almost impossible to get an optician to take measurements without having you buying glasses from them. If you have bought glasses from a traditional eyewear provider before, you may be hesitant to buy something as necessary as glasses from an online service. Lucky for you, the arrival of the physical Clearly Contacts location is a game changer.

Last week the StyleDemocracy team decided to head to downtown Toronto to check out the newly opened Clearly Contacts on Queen Street West.

Clearly Contacts has become Canada’s largest online retailer of glasses and contacts by offering customers an alternative way to buy eyewear. They supply you with the same designer brands offered in brick-and-mortar stores, but for half the price. The company is run out of Vancouver and caters to Canadians looking to get great deals on all forms of eyewear. What’s truly awesome about Clearly Contacts’ new location, is that the store has managed to replicate Clearly Contacts great online experience in a physical location.

The store opened to great reviews on November 29th 2013 and allows shoppers to come in and have a more personal customer experience. The arrival of the physical location really breaks down any barriers you might have for shopping with Clearly Contacts online. It truly is a one stop shop for getting your glasses. The new store can do in-house exams while sales staff walk you through the whole process making sure you get the right glasses with the right fit.

While the new Queen location can’t physically hold all of the inventory available through clearly contacts, if you don’t find the style you like, you can browse the entire catalogue online at one of the in-store computer stations. Need to know what the online glasses look like? No problem. One of the helpful Clearly Contacts staff will take your photo, and upload it online so you can try them on virtually. Additionally, once you’ve been in the physical location once, you can now subsequently buy glasses online from Clearly Contacts with the confidence of knowing you’ve already been fit by a professional, and you can bring the glasses into a physical spot for adjustments and service usually at no cost.

If you’re in the market for glasses, there really isn’t a reason not to check out Clearly Contacts – They have the cheapest price (they will price match if you find a better price), carry the best brands (everything from high end designers – Dior, Alexander McQueen, Phillip Lim to the gotta haves- Ray-Ban to their stylish house brands- Joseph Marc, Derek Cardigan and Trevor Linden, and they always have awesome promos running.

Head into the Queen Street location because right now you can score your 1st pair of glasses for free or get 2 pairs for $99. Don’t forget there’s free shipping if you buy in store, and right now you can score 15% off single in-store purchases.
