Handpicked Frames by IRIS Team Members - June 2018 Edition

At IRIS, one of our greatest assets is the knowledge and experience of our nationwide team of opticians. They really are the best at helping you choose the glasses to match your style, budget and lifestyle! We asked four opticians, of the great IRIS family, to pick their favourite frames just for you!

Seraphin Hathaway is a classic trendsetting frame, streamlining a modern and vintage style. I love its durability and unique marble construction. Best suited for a heart-shaped face and someone looking for a sophisticated look.
