Invest in an Industry with Growing Demand

The optical industry is on the rise, and so is Pearle Vision

Clear vision is critical to one’s day-to-day life – and Pearle Vision® is in the midst of an exciting growth phase that we believe is directly related to the sustained growth of the optical industry. We feel that, more than ever, consumers are focused on their health. That also applies to eye care. Consumers want dedicated care and they want an array of options in eyewear at affordable prices. According to The Vision Council’s VisionWatch survey (2018), the optical industry generated revenues of just over $40 billion in the U.S., more than $27 billion of which came from spending on prescription lenses and frames. Just over $6 billion came from exams.*

For individuals interested in franchising with Pearle Vision, this could present an opportunity for revenue. In 2017, Pearle Vision EyeCare Centers owned by optometrists generated an average of $1.17 million in revenue, with about 77% of revenue coming from retail sales.** It is worth noting that Pearle Vision charges royalties only on the retail side of the business. And, the average total revenue for the top quarter of optometrist-owned Pearle Vision centers rang in at $2.087 million.**

As consumers continue to age, Pearle Vision can play an important role in helping people get the regular eye exams and corrected lenses they need. We believe this can lead to sustainable demand and can help contribute to a profitable business model for many.
