Pearle Vision is an American chain of eye care stores. It was founded by Stanley Pearle, an optometrist in Savannah, Georgia, USA, in 1961.

"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 50 years and nearly 700 locations in the US, Canada and Puerto Rico, Dr. Stanley Pearle's vision, Pearle Vision, is an American household name.

He also understood the value of genuine eye care from a local eye doctor and that the optical experience is more than just a prescription, it is a window into your overall health.

Stanley Pearle died on July 21, 2011. He is survived by three children, 10 grandchildren and 11 great‐grandchildren.
