When Doug and Mary Perkins set Specsavers up back in 1984, they just wanted to make a difference. Back then it was about making quality, affordable eyecare accessible to everyone, which was pretty life-changing for many people. Nowadays we still believe in changing lives through better sight, and now better hearing too, as we move towards our ambition to offer total care in the space of sight and hearing.

Since then we’ve grown quite a bit, with stores, teams, and customers all across the world. That’s why we’re challenging ourselves to make better sense of the role we play in the lives of the people we work with, the communities we serve, and the planet we all share. We’re looking at everything we do through a new lens to make sure we’re doing all we can to work towards our belief of changing lives for the better. 

If all that sounds ambitious, well, it is. But we’re ready for the challenge and are committed to changing lives – not just through better sight and hearing, but with everything we do.
