Where to buy glasses?

Hi, not sure which forum this should go into...

I have high astigmatism. My new perscription has Cyl above -4.00, so I can't goto clearly contacts and buy their cheap glasses anymore. (They don't sell the lenses I need)

Also would like a store with some durable lenses. The ones I got from clearly contacts are all scratched up from all the work I do. (I'm pretty sure CC used the cheapest ones out there)

Somewhere you buy your glasses at a decent price helps too. (Vancouver or Burnaby)

Let me know please.

Tons of Asian places can give good discounts.
I've been going to a place in Coquitlam since I was kid. Grandma used to live there.
I have astigmatism and -6.xx, -7.xx so lenses would normally be pretty thick. Mine are thinner in the centre so it doesn't magnify my eyes completely. These lenses are usually more expensive. My frames were $450 before discount, lenses were even more expensive. Got both all together for less than the original price of the frames.
