    Yes, an eye exam is very expensive in Canada. The living standard is higher than that in other places. If you want to find some places for a cheap eye exam. I suggest you to go across the border to the US. It is said that there are optical distributers in malls. And it will just take you $70 to get an eye exam and a pair of glasses. Good luck!

    I don't know because I have never been to that city. But I think you can ask a local resident where an optometrist is. I think local people will be more helpful in this part. Or you can ask the taxi driver and ask him or her to guide you. When I am in an unfamiliar place, I often ask the taxi driver to send me there. But before doing that I will ask how much he will charge me first, afraid that he will overcharge me later.

    You can find The Instituto Cubano de Oftalmología Ramon Pando Ferrer (Cuban Institute of Ophthalmology) in Havana. It is a national and international reference hospital as well as a leading teaching centre. Some people said that it is one of the best ophthalmological institutions. So I strongly suggest you to have a look here. And there are also other ophthalmological institutions. They can give useful suggestions. Good luck!

    Usually an eye exam will cost us $50-$70. A pair of prescription glasses will cost us nearly $100.but sometimes, they will cost us more than that. The price varies from place to place because the living standard is different from each other. So consult the local people and then you can know the exactly money the local eyeglasses stores will charge.
