Pearle Vision® Licensed Owners Bring Healthy Vision to Their Communities

“When the pediatrician said my 8-year-old needed glasses, I felt like the worst mom in the world for not having realized it earlier. I needed eye care professionals I could trust to properly put her in glasses,” writes a customer.

May is Healthy Vision Month, when Pearle Vision licensed owners join others in promoting awareness of eye health and urging everyone to get an eye exam.

As we celebrate Healthy Vision Month, we invite you to learn more about the Pearle Vision franchise opportunity and how being a Pearle Vision licensed owner can help you make a positive impact in your own community. Our philosophy is “eye care first, glasses second,” and we look for franchisees who value the same ideal of earning patients’ trust and caring for them as good neighbors. That’s why consumers have rated Pearle Vision the top optical brand for doctor quality perception.1

Independent optometrists, vision health providers and investors who are seeking to do good in their communities by offering a full range of eye care services and products will find many opportunities to do so as licensed owners of a Pearle Vision EyeCare Center. Pearle Vision has a longstanding partnership with OneSight, an independent nonprofit that provides access to quality vision care and glasses in underserved communities worldwide. And in 2013, Pearle Vision launched an initiative called CORNEA (Community Outreach Reinforcement of Neighborhood Eye Care Activation), which sponsors events featuring free vision screening and eye exams in neighborhoods around the nation.

“Healthcare providers can change lives,” says Alex Wilkes, General Manager of Pearle Vision. “We provide systems and support that are designed to help optometrists and opticians build their patient base and operating margin, while devoting more time to patient care.”

Pearle Vision is well-known for its niche in mid- to high-end corrective lenses and frames, but the concept of one-stop, total eye care began when Dr. Stanley Pearle founded the first Pearle Optical in Savannah, Ga., in 1961. In 1981, he created the brand’s franchise opportunity, which is based on quality provider care and corporate support

“We offer a turnkey program designed to allow professionals to deliver quality care and hopefully increase profits by embracing the Pearle Vision ethic and name,” says Wilkes. The collective buying power of more than 500 EyeCare Centers ensures access to the most popular frames and lenses at advantageous pricing.

The iconic Pearle Vision name delivers instant brand recognition and trust. Licensed EyeCare Center owners benefit from a $35 million marketing plan that reaches across North America as well as resources to simplify supply chain management, billing and insurance claim processing. These systems allow optometrists and opticians to focus on delivering quality eye care while profitably growing their business.

As we focus on healthy vision for every neighborhood, envision yourself as the licensed owner of a trusted Pearle Vision EyeCare Center in your community. Call 1-800-PEARLE-1 to discover more about franchising opportunities for doctors, opticians and investors.
