LOCATION:
Victoria is located on beautiful Vancouver Island.  As the capital of BC, it has a vibrate downtown waterfront with great shopping and restaurants in the area.  Known as the flower city, its beauty makes Victoria a sought-after tourist destination. It is easy to escape the hustle of city life and lose yourself in nature’s beauty hiking and camping throughout the magnificent forests and hills all over the island.  The endless coast line is a water enthusiast’s dream, offering anything from quiet inlets for kayaking and paddle boarding to waves for surfing.  The temperate climate makes Victoria a desirable location from those wanting to escape parkas and snow shovels. Yet for those that enjoy skiing only 2.5 hours up island is Mount Washington, which averages 38 ft of snow each year.  Victoria is a rapidly growing city making it ideal for a new grad looking to raise a family, yet its endless outdoor activities is great for an OD looking to slow down and spend more time enjoying nature.  Victoria truly does have it all. 

We started as a group of 30 Optometrists in 2008 and have grown to 400 Optometrists across Canada in just 10 years.  Today, as Canada’s fastest growing Doctor Owned eye care provider, FYidoctors team includes respected leaders from provincial and national associations who are dedicated to the values long associated with Optometry.
