Pearle Vision was founded in 1961 by Dr. Stanley Pearle with the one-stop concept. In Savannah of Georgia, he opened the Pearle Vision Center with total eye care where he combined an exclusive eyewear selection for complete eye exams. To select opticians and doctors, he then began franchising in 1981. Today, Luxottica owned Pearle Vision. Alex Wilkes is the CEO of Pearle Vision.
