Our purpose is to change lives through better sight and hearing

Together with our store partners and teams, we provide the best value optometry and audiology healthcare services for our customers.

When our founders Doug and Dame Mary Perkins, both optometrists, set out from their home in Guernsey to make glasses accessible to all people at the best price. At a time when high prices and limited choice were the norm, Doug and Mary knew they could provide value for money eye care for everyone. Their spirit of entrepreneurship quickly revolutionised the industry.

They introduced a pioneering joint venture partnership model, meaning each store is part-owned and managed by its own directors, supported by our office teams providing a range of specialist services such as marketing, accounting, IT and our supply chain.

Fast forward to today, and Specsavers is a household name, with more than 2,000 eye care and audiology businesses looking after the eye and hearing health of more than 40 million customers in 11 countries.

Specsavers believes that everyone has the right to access the highest quality eye and hearing care services, and through our stores and our people, our mission is to change lives through better sight and hearing.

And you can help us achieve it.
