Our Heritage: Who we are
Over 50 years ago, Dr. Stanley Pearle created Pearle Optical, a small shop in Savannah, Georgia, that prided itself on delivering the best optical experience possible. Dr. Pearle believed in best-in-class eye doctors, unmatched care, and access to superior frames and lenses. It wasn’t long before his vision extended beyond Georgia and became the country’s first large-scale optical company. Since then, Pearle Vision has outpaced competitors by meeting the ever-changing needs of patients and providing the quality products they desire.
