FYidoctors Adds Second Location in St. Catharines, Ontario


CALGARY, Alberta—FYidoctors | Visique, an optometrist-owned eyecare company based here, announced that Dr. Viktor Kuraitis and his staff have joined the FYidoctors family. The Dr. Viktor A. Kuraitis, OD, clinic will continue to operate in the same location and to serve its patients with the same quality eyecare experience under the FYidoctors banner, the announcement noted. “Merging my clinic with a company that prides itself with the same values and ethics under which we operate played a major role in the decision,” Kuraitis said in the announcement.

“FYidoctors has made a name for themselves in the industry not only as a premier supplier of high-quality goods and services, but as a company that puts the health of their patients above all else,” he said.

Kuraitis graduated from the University of Waterloo School of Vision Science and Optometry in 1975 with a special interest in vision therapy. Soon after graduation, he opened his own practice, which still stands in its original location on Linwell Road. The clinic has been serving the residents of St. Catharines for over 40 years and specializes in binocular vision, and prism and vision therapy.

“We’re excited to be expanding our presence in the St. Catharines region and welcoming Dr. Kuraitis and his staff to the FYidoctors family,” Dr. Alan Ulsifer, chairman and chief executive officer of FYidoctors, said in the announcement. “Having run his clinic for over 40 years, Dr. Kuraitis understands the importance of our mission, to provide Canadians access to high quality eyecare and eyewear.”
