Service You Can Trust

Prescription Glasses

Helping you select the perfect frame and pairing it with lenses that meet your unique needs is our priority at Benson Optical. Our experienced licensed opticians have comprehensive knowledge of the latest lens and frame technologies. Combine this with our interest in current fashion and lifestyle trends for eyewear that not only looks great but functions flawlessly. We can help you take care of your sunglasses and prescription glasses. You will also find safety glasses and accessories in-store. Our team offers frame adjustments, repairs and service.


Benson Optical's on-site lab offers same-day service on most prescriptions. Some of our in-house repairs includes soldering, temple and nose pad arm replacement. Call or come-in to see how our team can keep your eyewear functionning at its best.

Our Services

The Bensons have been serving the north-west since 1981. We provide the following products and services:

  • Sale and service of eyewear

  • Sight testing

  • Troubleshooting adaptation difficulties

  • Eyewear adjustments

  • Frame repairs and replacements

  • Custom frame modifications

  • Edge-down of existing lenses into new frames

Sight Testing

Sight testing is carried out by our registered refracting optician. The modern technique we apply uses a natural light setting rather than a traditional darkroom. This technique enables you to experience your new prescription in a more realistic atmosphere. Sight testing is a cost effective approach to obtaining a new prescription for eyewear.

Third-party Billing on Your Behalf

We can take care of your third-party billing online, quickly and accurately.


We are proud to announce our partnership with Pacific Blue Cross®, which allows us to bill directly online for our First Nations Customers, both for eyewear and sight testing. We also offer direct billing for Great-West Life, Green Shield Canada, Sun Life and many other insurance companies. Please contact our store directly for a complete list of our direct billing partners.


Incredible Experience

“My mom is visiting from out of town and her glasses broke. I read an earlier review commenting on how good the service was and figured we'd better go down and check them out. No kidding, my mom had her lenses in a new pair of frames in under 15 minutes. The gentleman that served us has mastered customer service. Incredible experience. We were commenting afterwards that she'd fly in to Terrace when she needs new glasses.”
