OTTAWA—FYidoctors, Canada’s largest doctor-owned provider of ophthalmic products and services, celebrated its 10th anniversary at the recent annual general meeting, which was held here at the Ottawa Convention Centre and Westin Hotel. More than 800 people attended the event, including optometrists, practice coaches, suppliers and other partners and eyecare professionals.

Since its founding, FYidoctors has grown to more than 450 optometrists providing services at more than 180 optical locations across Canada.
