Specsavers 2017 logo

Specsavers is a Partnership of nearly 2,000 locally-run businesses, committed to delivering high quality, affordable optical and hearing care in the communities they serve.

Each store is part-owned and managed by its own directors, who are shareholders of their own businesses but who are supported by key specialists in support offices, who provide a range of services, such as marketing, accounting, IT and wholesaling, among others.

This joint venture partnership ensures that the opticians and audiologists who run their stores can concentrate on delivering what they do best – provide expert eye and hearing care to their customers.

There are currently more than 1,700 partners in the UK and Republic of Ireland alone, of whom 548 have been with the partnership for at least ten years.

This spirit of British entrepreneurship has been encouraged by the company founders, Doug and Dame Mary Perkins, who 30 years ago pioneered the optical joint venture partnership model and also revolutionised the industry with their innovative concept of affordable, fashionable eye care for everyone, at a time when high prices for optical care and limited choice were the norm.
