It was in 1986 that Dr. Francis Jean opened his first optometry clinic in his hometown of Baie-Comeau on the Cote-Nord of Quebec. Visionary and human, Dr. Jean developed a practice based on the quality of care, services and products offered. It was in 1990, with optometrists who shared his values, that he founded IRIS, The Visual Group.

In 2020, IRIS has created its own frame collection called, LYA.

No one understands eye care needs, wishes and values ​​of patients and customers better than we do! To offer the best, we listened to our customers and have designed the eyewear with the know-how of our professionals, a collection that combines fashion, quality, uniqueness and accessibility to provide you with glasses that you will absolutely love. The LYA frames, proudly designed by us, are available in all our IRIS stores. You will love them as much as we do!

Over the past 30 years, IRIS has become a leader in Canada. It is thanks to its distinct concept as well as its commitment to offer high quality products and services in the field of eye care that IRIS has managed to carve out a niche, as solid as it is enviable.

The success of IRIS is based on a mission, values ​​and a vision to which all of its actions are based on.
