The expansion ‘makes us the largest doctor-led network of clinics in North America,’ said the CEO.




SACRAMENTO, CA and CALGARY, AB — Canada’s FYidoctors has expanded its operations into the U.S. marketplace with the addition of six eyecare clinics in California.

“We are absolutely proud to mark this historic chapter in our company history,” said Dr. Alan Ulsifer, FYidoctors’ chairman and CEO. “In 2008, our company launched with the intent of becoming Canada’s largest doctor-led eye care provider. Today, we are exceeding that vision by marking a historic foray into the most populous state in America. The welcoming of our new business units in California ushers an exciting and noteworthy time and makes us the largest doctor-led network of clinics in North America.”

Clinics included as part of FYidoctors’ initial expansion include:

  • Studio Eyes Optometry, Burbank, CA
  • Studio Eyes Optometry, Northridge, CA
  • Studio Eyes Optometry, Sun Valley, CA
  • ClearVue Eye Care, Roseville, CA
  • Precision Eyecare, Mountain View, CA
  • Precision Eyecare, San Jose, CA

FYidoctors operates over 280 locations in Canada.

The U.S. operations will be led by Chief Strategy Officer Dr. David Redman, who was named 2018 AOA Optometrist of the Year. Dr. Aaron Lech has been named to the role of chief medical adviser.

“I am thrilled to play a role in this historic expansion,” said Redman. “And I look forward to helping grow FYidoctors in the U.S. market. Our company’s value proposition for clinics who wish to leverage the power of a family of providers while maintaining doctor-led operations presents a major upside for many operators. Our future is bright.”


Ulsifer said: “We welcome all our new teams in California to the FYidoctors family. And we look forward to learning from their years in business as we continue expansion in the weeks and months to come.”
