About the Green Club

The optometry profession is changing
As there will be an increased pressure on the healthcare industry, the optometrist of the future needs to work closer with both general physicians and eye doctors. That means more enhanced optical services will be available in optical stores and that the optometrist will play an even more crucial role in eye health. At Green Club, we believe that keeping your knowledge up-to-date is vital in this ever-changing industry and will become even more important in the future. Therefore, we provide you with the tools to prepare yourself for the future, keep on learning and refresh your knowledge in an easy and professional way.

About Specsavers

Did you know that Specsavers is a family-run business? Doug and Mary Perkins, both optometrists, founded the company in 1984 from behind a ping-pong table in their spare bedroom, and are still involved in the business. Their children are also part of the business: John is now joint managing director and Cathy is audit manager. Daughter Julie was the country director of the Dutch business for over 11 years.

Doug and Mary had a clear vision when they started the company: to sell high-quality frames at an affordable price. They wanted their company to have the service and feeling of a local entrepreneur, however with the purchasing power of a large international player. In this way, the costs saving could save the customer money. And that is what happened…

Family values
Engagement, passion, responsibility and honesty are values being cherished at Specsavers. As a family company, we want to build something for the longer term, with a foundation of cooperation, partnership and sharing successes. Our store directors and employees share this feeling and show this on the shop floor. This differentiates us from other, often shareholder, companies, that have a short-term vision and often focus on the shareholder results rather than on the longer term.

Specsavers is the fastest growing privately-owned company in the world with more than 1,800 stores in the UK, Ireland, the Netherlands, Spain, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Australia and New Zealand. We are currently market leader in seven countries and striving to reach market leadership in the other countries too.
