Our Story
At felix + iris, we have one goal in mind: to help you
look and feel your best in your glasses.
By getting to know your individual style and unique optical needs, we'll create a completely personalized online shopping experience to find the glasses meant for you.
We're changing the way you shop for prescription glasses.

Whether you wear single vision lenses, bifocals, or progressives, we know how difficult it is to find high-quality eyewear with the right fit for you — a pair that looks great, feels comfortable on your face, and meets your vision needs. At felix + iris, we're focused on helping you find that fit from the comfort of your couch. We've taken the traditional in-store experience of shopping for glasses and made it more convenient, affordable, and straightforward online. Through our advanced tools and in-house optical expertise, we're redefining the way you shop for glasses (for good!).

We're committed to your eye health.

After years of selling reading glasses and sunglasses online, we've learned a lot about our customers' optical needs. That's why we're focused on providing a range of options to keep your eyes healthy over time, whether you need readers, progressives, photochromic lenses, or just about anything else your eye doctor recommends. We work with an optical lab that has years of experience making lenses for optometrists and optical shops, so with our optometrist-approved lenses and guaranteed prescription verification, you can trust you'll find superior optical quality in every pair.

We keep prices simple.

With our in-house fulfillment team and more than 10 years in the eyewear industry, we can sell our glasses at more affordable prices than you'd find other places, with single vision lenses for $119, bifocals for $249, and progressives for $299. We also don't believe in making you pay extra for the essentials: all pairs are outfitted, free of charge, with anti-reflective, scratch-resistant, and UV lens protection. And because we want to make sure you're 100% happy with your purchase, we cover shipping both ways and offer a 30-day Fit Promise policy, which allows you to return your glasses for a full refund.

We make it personal.

When it comes to finding your best pairs, we get to know what makes you uniquely you. Our proprietary Fit Profile quiz identifies important style and vision factors, creating your custom store full of unique recommendations. Once we've helped you narrow it down, you can try on your top matches at home using our free Fit Kit — plus, you'll get the chance to chat one-on-one with our knowledgeable team of stylists and optical experts. With each pair you purchase, we'll help you build your glasses based on your individual prescription and lifestyle preferences so they fit you just right.

We're all about the details.

From high-end cellulose acetate, stainless steel, and titanium frames to quality polycarbonate and high index lenses, we only choose the best materials. Starting with the frames, there are dozens of steps that go into their construction, from die-cutting each individual piece to bonding hinges to acetate temples. We take pride in providing important frame options such as spring hinges, flexible TR-90 materials, and nose pads with no-slip grip, too. And when it comes to your lenses, each is technician-crafted and polished to ensure prescription accuracy.

We're hands-on.

We care about getting your glasses to you safely, and we wouldn't trust anyone else to get the job done right. That's why your frames live in our on-site warehouse, where they're inspected and handled with care by our production team. Once you order, each lens is custom-built to your exact measurements and prescription, then our team performs a careful 11-point check, packages, and ships each pair by hand. From start to finish, our process is precise, so you can start loving your new glasses the moment they arrive.

We've built a team that cares.

In 2005, husband and wife Randy and Angie Stocklin began selling non-prescription glasses out of their 10-by-12 foot home office. What was once one of those "let's just try it and see" ideas grew into a successful startup, and soon overflowing boxes moved them to bigger spaces. Today, our rapidly growing team operates out of Greenwood, Indiana, with a "people matter most" mentality and a passion for helping you find that perfect pair. From supporting our community to hanging out after-hours, our team of innovators and creators treat each other like family — and around here, you're part of the family, too.
