Experience matters when selecting your eye care vision specialist. Read comments from our patients and customers from over the years.

Fantastic selection of frames and the people who work here couldn’t be more patient or helpful. I have an extremely high prescription and particularly appreciated their large selection of small frames. Worth asking if this is what you’re looking for — they may have additional options that aren’t currently on display.

I have lived in the neighborhood for 22 years. I have been coming to Iris for about 20 of those years. Balvinder and Surinder are the best when matching frames to your face plus are the nicest people. I can not go in there just to look and say Hi. There is always a frame that I end up buying.

Thank you so much for your contribution to the neighborhood.

Had a very wonderful experience at iris optical. They are very professional and friendly and very helpful. I would recommend this place for high-end designer frames and glasses. A perfect place to find what you’re looking for.

Top of the line customer service and frames. They have a ton of high end and unique frames and sunglasses. If you’re something special, you’ll find it here.
The staff and owner are very friendly and will take care of you.

Great service! I found Iris Eye Center vía my insurance provider- I hadn’t been to an eye exam since I moved from Southern California and was a bit hesitant because my previous eye doc was so good. But, I finally decided it was time to get over my grieving period and started looking for a new provider. I’m so glad I went with Iris Eye Center. The staff was friendly, accommodating and efficient. They have awesome hours (open later than most and Saturday appointments!) and Dr Jacques was very thorough, gentle and made me feel at ease. All in all, I walked out of there with new glasses, peace of mind that my eyeballs were good for a couple of more years and very content with the whole experience. Highly recommended.

Very professional and courteous staff at this local eye center! I found there to be top-quality service and product selection.
Best place I have experienced in the Bay Area so far.

My boyfriend works for the state of California. After dropping by in person to a few places we couldn’t find the right price and pair of glasses that were within his plan. Surinder (owner) and his female assistant... were so helpful. We took a seat and she told us to make our selfs feel at home. Then Surinder brought us many pairs of glasses that would be covered by his plan. They also offered their welcomed option while maintaining a professional yet homie feel. We were also offered glare protection and other options not covered but we never felt pressured. They even have awesome custom made frames they make themselves! I would highly recommend this small business to anyone looking for new glasses or shades. We will be back! :)
