"Iris Optical is a very professional outfit. The 'shop' is a nice place to be, feeling more like a chilled out office than an opticians. The optician is very patient and thorough. There was no discernible change to my prescription and no attempt to get me into new glasses, so it was clear that the eyes came first, not the order. I did want to make an order, anyway, for some prescription sunglasses. The guys there are really good at helping you choose the right style and fit, and don't seem precious about what they have in stock or not. Only my second visit, but a very consistent picture at each."

Established by optician Russell Scher FADO MFDO in 1999, Iris Optical began life in 1999 as Iris Online Contact Lens Centre. Contact lens customers began asking whether we could also supply spectacles, and so in May 2001 Iris Spectacles was launched and the company's premises by London's Tower Bridge was opened to the public.
A second store, in Richmond, Surrey, followed in 2005 and housed our first sunglass collection as well as a similar range of spectacles to that found in Iris Tower Bridge. Richmond's success led to the opening of a third store, in the City of London, in 2007.
