In 1986, Dr. Francis Jean opened his first optometry clinic in his hometown of Baie-Comeau on the North Shore of Quebec. Visionary and human, Dr. Jean developed a practice based on the quality of care, services and products offered.

Since then, IRIS has become the largest network of optometrists, opticians and ophthalmologists under the same banner in Canada. Thanks to this business model, IRIS has raised the standards of eye health for Quebecers and Canadians.

Over the past 30 years, IRIS has become an optical leader in Quebec and Canada. Thanks to its distinct concept and commitment to offering high-quality products and services in the field of eye care, IRIS has succeeded in carving out a place for itself that is as solid as it is enviable.

IRIS is a Quebec-based company that takes pride in creating its own products. Our LYA eyewear collection, proudly designed in-house, is available in all IRIS stores. You will love it as much as we do! 

Our founder used to say: I love you! Three simple words that illustrate how much we love people at IRIS. Both our clients and the people with whom we work.

Happy National Holiday to all Quebecers.
