Company Overview

About Specsavers New Zealand

As the world’s largest private optical retailer, Specsavers was founded almost 40 years ago by optometrist husband and wife team, Doug and Dame Mary Perkins. Since then, Specsavers has grown from two eye care professionals with a powerful vision, to a family of well over 35,000 colleagues around the world, looking after the eye health of more than 40 million people.

Almost 15 years ago, Specsavers launched in Australia and New Zealand with the aim to make eye care accessible and affordable for every Australian and New Zealander. Specsavers now has more than 400 stores across both countries, with over 6,000 team members, making Specsavers the leading eye care provider in Australia and New Zealand.

In addition, Specsavers has grown its offering to communities across ANZ, providing audiology services to more than 2 million Aussies and New Zealanders for hearing loss. Having launched Audiology five years ago, Specsavers now has 250 Audiology businesses and supported 140+ audiology professionals to start and run their own businesses.
