Specsavers is the world’s largest, privately owned optical retailer serving 41 million patients in 11 countries. We have been transforming eye health and careers for over 35 years and are proud to have over 4,700 partners in our network. Our globally renowned partnership model centered on empowering the independence of optometrists and opticians, adapting to local needs, and prioritizing patient care is why so many have chosen ownership with us.
As community eye health is our top priority, we’ve made OCT scans a standard part of pre-testing. Not only that, but we have an integrated supply chain to put customers first by offering thorough testing on our wide selection of quality frames and lenses. And as we grow to open 200 stores across Canada in two years, we recognize the importance of having both licensed opticians and dedicated retail experts on the floor at each of our stores at all times – that’s why we need your expertise.
