"Great selection of contemporary frames, including brands you rarely see elsewhere. The service was excellent and staff even went out of their way to bring out frames not on display. The pricing is straight forward and in my opinion, very competitive. On top of that, my glasses were ready for pick-up in 24 hours. A rare enjoyable retail experience!"

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.
