Our History

Pearle Vision History

We go above and beyond to show how much we care

Genuine Eye Care

Caring for eyes and the people behind them is at the center of everything we do at Pearle Vision. In 1961, when our founder, Dr. Stanley Pearle, started his own practice in Savannah, GA, he started it with this sentiment in mind. And now, over 50 years later, each of our 400 locally owned and operated practices carries the legacy of this commitment.

Dr. Pearle’s founding vision was simple:

  • Best in class doctors
  • Unmatched commitment to care from the exam room to the retail floor
  • Premiere assortment of frames and lenses
  • Serving the community of patients and customers that trust Pearle Vision with their EyeCare and Eye Wear needs

Our doctors carry out Dr. Stanley Pearle’s mission across our network of EyeCare Centers every day, making Pearle Vision the trusted household name in eye care

At Pearle Vision, our eye care experts understand that eye exams can feel intimidating. That’s why our neighborhood optometrists and opticians take care to answer all your questions so that you will have a stress-free experience and get the eye care that you need. To us, it’s not just about getting your eyes checked, it’s about making sure that your eyes are healthy, that you feel cared for, listened to and understood.

Dr. Stanley Pearle believed that to be a good practitioner with a reputation for service and quality, you must make a commitment to care about the people behind the eyes. Our community of eye care experts… optometrists and opticians live out this commitment every day and strive to ensure your eyes are healthy and improve how you see your world.

“I’m eager for it to be a good company, with a reputation for service and quality, because that’s what I’m all about.” – Dr. Stanley Pearle
