Welcome to the world of Sacori. A specially crafted line of frames launched in collaboration with Arlene Dickinson a two-time best-selling author, influential entrepreneur and venture capitalist.

Sacori frames are meticulously crafted and offer the very best in materials and design. When paired with our high-quality Canadian made lenses, Sacori is simply the new standard of premium eyewear.
Welcome to a new era in eyewear. Our newest, most advanced lenses have changed the way we see not only lens technology, but life itself. These revolutionary progressive lenses are helping patients see their world at every distance with completely natural, comfortable and customized vision.
As healthcare providers, we take the global concern about COVID-19 very seriously. We are doing whatever it takes to ensure that both your eye and overall health needs are attended to at this time. Social distancing should not compromise your ability to see clearly.
We are happy to now offer contactless curbside pickup at most of our locations. All you need to do is call the clinic upon arrival, and your product will be delivered to you outside in a tray or basket. All glasses and contact lenses are thoroughly cleaned and disinfected by a member of our team before being delivered, including frames, lenses, cases and boxes.
If you receive your glasses and they do not fit properly, please contact us by phone or email and we will do everything we can to address your concern. We will assess on a case-by-case basis whether it is safe to drop them off at the clinic, or if we will need to schedule an appointment once regular operations resume.
It is of utmost importance that you feel supported by FYidoctors throughout these unprecedented times. If you have any inquiries regarding your eye health, including prescription or eyewear needs, please know that we are here to answer them anytime by phone or email.

FYidoctors was founded on the idea that our fellow Canadians deserve to see their very best, with access to the highest in quality care and the most advanced eye care technology. We’ve grown from a small handful of doctors in Western Canada to a national brand of over 250 clinics. We owe that success to our relentless drive to put our patients’ vision first, invest in Canadian technology, support Canadian people and engage with our communities.
Our 500+ doctors and 2800+ team members all live and work in Canada, including at our very own lens manufacturing lab in Delta, BC, where we produce and ship the most technologically advanced digital Internal Freeform lenses for patients across the country. The ability not only to help Canadians see life at its best, but to provide them with rewarding career opportunities too, motivates us every day.
As we continue to grow, our roots will always be firmly planted in Canadian soil. And we think that’s something to be incredibly proud of.
