“Being part of a larger group where the interest is patients first, allowed me to take care of my patients and my staff with the future in mind. It was certainly one of the biggest consideration factors to join FYi.”

“Growth is endless in this company, and training new opticians is near and dear to my heart to help them have room to grow is exciting.”

Testimonials

“When we looked down the road of Optometry, our margins were getting tighter, and it was getting harder to run a business. An Optometry business specifically. We approached FYi with an open mind knowing it might not be for us and after running all the numbers it made sense for our clinic, team members, and long-term plan. Not only myself, but also our associates, have all seen a growth in income and that goes back to us being able to focus on patient care.”

Testimonials

“We joined FYidoctors because we could see the competitive landscape was changing quickly and there’s power in numbers. Joining has allowed our doctors to focus on patient care and less on administrative while continuing to build equity in our business.”
