We asked our IRIS staff across Canada to tell us about their favourite ophthalmic frames and sunglasses! Read about their top picks here. 

Maui Jim - the unanimous favourite for sunglasses!

All are unanimous; Maui Jim sunglasses offer incredible comfort, a stylish look and great vision. Once you've worn your first Maui Jim sunglasses, it's hard to return to another brand. When you see through the polarized lenses of Maui Jim sunglasses, you'll notice that the colours are enhanced and vibrant. Polarized lenses eliminate 99.9% of glare, allowing you to see the world at its best! That's why, from coast to coast, Maui Jim is one of the IRIS team's favourite sunglasses brands.

We love these ophthalmic frame brands:


Ziggy frames are feminine, colourful and original. Each creation from this collection has many details, such as Swarovski crystals or pearls.

Xavier Garcia

The designer Xavier Garcia works on contemporary jewelry. This meticulousness necessary in jewelry-making is reflected in his frames. The collections are made of different materials and always have a touch of colour and whimsy.


Eyewear for everyone and for all forms of expression. It is through this philosophy that Etnia Barcelona creates its frames. In addition to being a favourite of many IRIS employees, Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie, Jay Z, Beyonce, Millie Bobby Brown, Gigi Hadid and Joe Jonas are also fans of Etnia Barcelona eyewear. 

Of course, Gucci, Tiffany, Tom Ford, J-F Rey, Silhouette and many other brands remain top picks by our team members.
