How much can I make if I employ an optometrist?

A historic look at Pearle Vision revenues

Pearle Vision EyeCare Centers have seen consistent revenue growth. Ultimately, earnings are determined by the skills of the Licensed Operator, by choosing the best location, by marketing, by providing outstanding service, and by controlling costs. Pearle Vision assists Licensed Operators with each of these facets of the business.

In the tables below, we provide a look at the revenue generated by EyeCare centers owned by an optician or investor who employs an optometrist. This data is included in Item 19 of our 2016 Franchise Disclosure Document.

As you examine these charts, keep in mind that Pearle Vision does not charge royalties on the exam side of the business. Royalties are only paid on the revenue generated by retail operations.
