FYidoctors, the country’s largest and fastest growing eye care provider, today launched Visique, changing the face of Quebec’s optical industry by bringing together over 75 leading optometrists under one unified banner.
This launch fully integrates several Quebec brands, including Marchand Giguere, a homegrown Quebec company with almost 100 years in operation. With over 45 locations across Quebec, consumers will benefit from Visique’s advanced diagnostic equipment and fully customized lens technology, as well as a comprehensive selection of top brands, and exclusive frames and products.
“People need and deserve exceptional eye care – and we remain committed to exceeding their expectations under a bold new banner,” said Dr. Frédéric Marchand, the vice president of FYidoctors Quebec. “As an optometrist-owned company, Visique knows the importance of healthy eyes, and by coming together our optometrists are able to deliver fully customized, best in class eye care to every patient that walks through our doors.”
Dr. Alan Ulsifer, the Chairman and CEO of FYidoctors, noted that the company’s focus on Quebec is part of a concerted and continuing growth strategy that has brought a commitment of high quality eye care to every region of the country.
“FYidoctors will see significant growth by investing heavily in Quebec,” said Dr. Ulsifer. “This includes new flagship Visique clinics along with advanced technology to serve all our patient’s needs.”
Dr. Marchand also highlighted the unique ownership model that underpins FYidoctors and Visique, and how it will strengthen the position of our optometrists in Quebec at a time of increasing consolidation in the optical marketplace.
“Many Visique optometrists are also Visique owners, making Quebec optometrists joint owners of a nationwide powerhouse,” said Dr. Marchand. “Visique’s unique business model supports our local business and optometrists, and ultimately enables us to provide better care to our patients.”
