We pride ourselves in our flexibility and willingness to discuss mutually beneficial options. Are you an optician or optical business? We offer options for both eye care-focused and optical only models. We also work with optometrists with and without their own clinics. Are you interested in realizing your practice’s value in cash and equity as a partner, or would you prefer a simple acquisition? We’re open to both. No matter your situation, we have a solution for you.
With a partnership comes an opportunity to join one of our three distinct banners operating across Canada:
Doctor-led, patient-focused eye care with an enhanced retail experience.
Offers a high-end, retail-first optical experience. We feature high-quality frames from unique, independent brands. Clinics may or may not include optometric care.
Our affordable, fashion-forward eyewear brand with a combination of enhanced retail experience and onsite optometry.
Patient care is the foundation of everything we do, and our doctor-led model ensures it always will be.
We’ve helped over 250 clinics boost profits and take their practice to the next level. Our recently attracted capital partner guarantees continued and exciting growth into the future.
Skilled, ambitious ODs and opticians are empowered to share best practices and lead industry change within our collaborative network.
By producing our own Canadian-made lenses, we’re able to keep upgrading and investing in the latest technology so that every partner and clinic stays current.
Sophisticated accounting, HR, finance and training programs lend increased strength and integrity to every colleague and clinic.
We’re able to offer our patients the most competitive prices and continuously reinvest savings into further improving patient care.
Our doctor-led, patient-focused model is designed to give you the freedom to focus on your patients, your practice and your professional goals. We support our partners with the resources, knowledge, technology and suppliers they need to see their businesses grow.

FYidoctors is optometrist-led, which means we’re constantly investing in innovation. Practices are equipped with the latest in clinical technology, so you can provide the best patient care possible.
Practice amongst people passionate about advancing eye care and eyewear, with opportunities to serve on our Advisory Committee, where doctors come together to set the standard for patient care.
“Practice management was starting to interfere with everybody’s life-work balance, so FYidoctors’ public relations, marketing, human resources, recruiting and the diagnostic services we could offer our patients was very appealing…and the timing being during COVID, the job security [of our staff] was really reinforced.”
Dr. Miriam Debly
Family Vision – Halifax, Partners of FYidoctors
“What I find most appealing about the FYidoctors model is that it's allowed us to create an infrastructure where optometrists can thrive in an [increasingly] difficult market. Our list of competitors continues to grow but I'm confident that we have strategies in place to meet any challenge.”
Dr. Winston Koo, FYidoctors – Toronto – Commerce Court
“This is a perfect way to work out a future retirement plan. When the time comes that I want to cut back a bit then it’ll be easy enough to bring in young optometrist who want to join our clinic but not deal with the admin side of things.”
Dr. Jody Killoran, Family Vision – Dartmouth, Partners of FYidoctors
“The more I researched, I really felt like FYidoctors was a good fit for me. I felt that the culture is challenging and supportive. They challenge you as an optometrist to do more, be better and to provide the best care—not to just go in, see patients and leave. It’s inspiring and makes me want to keep growing and keep practicing.”
Dr. Susan Judson
Charlottetown Vision, Partners of FYidoctors
