Optometry Partner – Start your new, independent clinic with the latest technology
Richmond Hill, ON

Specsavers is the world’s largest, privately-owned optical retailer. Our journey began 40 years ago in the UK, with visionary optometrists Doug and Mary Perkins. Today, we support over 2,600 healthcare businesses spanning 11 countries in our network, passionately caring for more than 42 million patients and customers worldwide.

We believe that access to quality eyecare should be a right, not a luxury. That’s why we’ve made OCT available as a standard part of eye exams. With our advanced clinical equipment and an extensive range of affordable and high-quality eyewear, we’re here to make a real difference in the lives of our customers.

If you’re passionate about making a difference, providing incredible care, and being part of a values and purpose-driven organization, join us on our journey to revolutionize the way Canadians experience eyecare. Together, we can change lives through better sight.
