This Glasgow firm provides mobile eye-care services to the residents of 4,000 care homes across Britain and, increasingly, to people confined to their own homes. A third of its income comes from eye examinations, usually paid for by the NHS, and the rest from sales of glasses. A new division was launched this year for the hard of hearing, bringing audiology and hearing test services to its clients. Founders Brian McGuire, Rickey Pooran and Renato Devlin are now looking to sign up corporate clients. Sales have grown 72% a year from £1.5m in 2004 to £7.6m in 2007.
