Yup this shop has been around for a long time. Tons of staff in lab coats. Chat one up and see what they can do for you.

I've tried on asian fit oakleys here but didn't care for them. Definitely something you should try on before ordering.

Whatever you do, don't buy bigger goggles thinking you can add foam to it. I bought Smith IO's and put my cut up Smith Prodigy foam on the nose bridge. It works, but it looks ugly as a mofo. I wasted $200 on it since I can't sell the goggles at that stage.

Try Spy Platoons. They're my current goggles I ride with now. Although not advertised as Asian fit, the frame and foam conforms to my Asian face really well. Crowbars were just too small for my love of fishbowl goggles.
Yes definitely not dropping 200 bucks let alone on goggles that don't even fit properly. Will check out pacific boarder again.

Are you completely set on Asian fit Oakleys? Oakley dealers can surely order them for you, especially in Vancouver where so many Asians live. If you're open for other soultions: have you tried goggles for women? With the wide range of brands and models you can get there I'm sure there's something that fits your face.
No I'm not set, but I'm very captivated by them. I mean they went out of their way to design a little something for Asians so they've gotta have a good chance of fitting........right? :P

Nice, thanks for the suggestion. Surrey is a little bit sort of VERY far so I'll leave it as last resort for now.
