Ensure you’re seeing your best with an FYidoctors eye exam.
In 2020, our mission is to educate about the importance of eye exams as 64% of Canadians do not get them on a regular basis.
Not only can eye exams detect issues associated with vision, they can also help identify serious overall health conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure and even cancer.
A trusted relationship with your eye doctor is the best way to monitor changes over time. Our skilled optometrists offer personalized care using sophisticated technology which allows for an incredibly detailed picture of each eye.
We offer a wide variety of tailored solutions to improve your eye health and individual needs and our custom-made lenses crafted at our own lab in Delta, BC can also make an incredible difference in the quality of your vision. Make 2020 the year you see your very best.
