Our History

Pearle Vision Has The History To Move You Forward.

Pearle Vision has a long history of caring for eyes and taking care of our franchise owners. By leveraging that history and brand recognition, we can help you find future success.

Dr. Stanley Pearle Transformed Vision Care.

In 1961, Dr. Stanley Pearle transformed the eye care industry. when he opened the first Pearle Vision in Savannah, Georgia. He created a comprehensive eye care destination by bringing optometrists and opticians together, providing patients the convenience of stopping in for a comprehensive eye exam and then consulting with an optician to select frames and lenses.

“Nobody Cares For Eyes More Than Pearle.”

Almost immediately, patients flocked to Pearle Optical, not only because it was convenient, but also because Pearle Vision had style. Dr. Stanley Pearle made it his mission to stock a wide assortment of fashionable frames.

Throughout the 1970s and 1980s, he opened hundreds of Pearle Vision EyeCare Centers throughout the United States. His commitment to both comprehensive eye care and fashionable eyewear resonated with customers who wanted to see better and look better. The tagline “Nobody cares for eyes more than Pearle” became an iconic slogan that still rings true today.

Franchising Background

In 1981, Pearle Vision began offering franchises to optometrists, opticians and investors who were interested in using Pearle Vision’s business model, brand and marketing muscle to build their own businesses. Today, the Pearle Vision franchise continues to grow by helping professionals profitably deliver quality eye care.

“We look to augment the business potential for dedicated professionals by providing them with turnkey systems, turnkey support, turnkey operations and marketing overlays that allow them to focus on one thing: practicing genuine eye care,” says Pearle Vision Vice President of Franchise Development Josh Robinson.

Moving Into The Future

To help grow the Pearle Vision brand and drive results for all of our franchise owners, we are focused on delivering quality care, enhancing the top-line and bottom-line performance of EyeCare Centers, and improving operations to boost customer satisfaction. It is our goal to ensure that franchise owners are able to provide patients with the care of a private practice and owners with the support and power of a world-class brand.

We will continue to grow our niche as a premium eye care provider that customers trust to deliver genuine eye care.
