FYidoctors Hits the Streets of Toronto to Help Those in Need

Posted on August 27th, 2015

Recent research has shown that many Canadians put vision care last on their list of health care priorities. The reality, however, is that comprehensive eye exams are not only an important part of your vision health, but they can detect critical illnesses such as diabetes, high cholesterol, glaucoma and even Alzheimer’s disease .

Unfortunately, vision care isn’t always accessible to everyone, with many Canadians unable to visit an eye care professional or afford proper eyewear.

That's why FYidoctors has joined forces with VSP Vision Care, a leader in eye care and insurance, to provide a mobile eye care clinic that offers FREE eye exams and glasses to Torontonians in need.

The 40-foot-long, state-of-the-art mobile eye care clinic will be roaming the streets of the GTA for the next three days, with appointments pre-scheduled, and local Toronto FYidoctors and Vision Source optometrists volunteering their time and expertise.
