Some people just talk about putting customers first. At Pearle, we really mean it. We consistently look for new and different ways to improve your optical experience. From talking straight about prices to helping you find the perfect glasses for your lifestyle, our focus is on you. Our obsession with improving the optical experience began with Dr. Stanley Pearle. Dr. Pearle founded the Pearle Vision business in 1961 with a small office in Savannah, Georgia, five employees-and a commitment to excellence. "Pearle Optical" offered three basic services: the convenience of an Independent Doctor of Optometry,* prescription fulfillment right there in the lab, and the biggest selection of frames in Savannah.
An innovative man, Dr. Pearle didn't stop with Georgia. He was the first optical retailer to create an optical company on a large scale with nationwide advertising. In 1981, Pearle Vision began offering franchises. More than 40 years and nearly 800 company and franchise stores later, Dr. Stanley Pearle's vision, Pearle Vision, is an American household name.
