GLASSES THAT MAKE YOU SMILE

We want to make as many people smile as possible, by creating glasses that are both affordable and kind to the planet, and that protect your eyes at every time in your life.

PROTÉGER VOS YEUX...

Le pari fou que nous nous sommes lancé il y a plus de 10 ans était de prendre soin des yeux des 2,5 milliards de presbytes à travers le monde. Sont nées les READING. Depuis, notre dessein s’est élargi à tous les moments de votre vie, passés au soleil ou devant les écrans, et même les plus sportifs.

...AVEC DES MODÈLES ACCESSIBLES...

Donner le sourire au plus grand nombre grâce à nos lunettes, voilà ce qui nous anime.
Et c’est en proposant des modèles accessibles par leur prix, leur style intemporel et leur disponibilité partout dans le monde que nous y parvenons. Un pilier de la marque qui n’est pas prêt de bouger.

...ET UN IMPACT SUR LA PLANÈTE MAÎTRISÉ.

Notre travail au quotidien n’a de sens que complété d’objectifs vertueux :
réduire notre bilan carbone, prolonger la durabilité de nos produits, prendre soin de nos collaborateurs et nous engager auprès d’associations caritatives.

Protect your eyes

More than ten years ago we set ourselves the ambitious goal of protecting the eyes of the 2.5 billion longsighted people in the world. And so our READING glasses were born. Our ranges have since grown and now offer protection from the sun, the blue light emitted by electronic screens and the elements faced when practising a sport.

We design glasses that put a smile on your face and can be used every day, for every part of life and every activity. However you use them, they all have a common goal: protecting your eyes. Discover our different ranges, all designed to ensure every moment is a happy experience.

READING

Reading glasses

So you can enjoy reading a great book, even in the sun, or an article on a screen, we’ve got a range of glasses available with various dioptres. We make longsightedness stylish.

LONG-SIGHTEDNESS

Is a natural -and irreversible- evolution in sight which affects all people from 40 years old. The crystalline lens loses its elasticity and the eye is no longer able to produce a clear image. Long-sighted people have difficulty seeing up close (up to 60 cm), especially when reading.

REDISCOVER THE JOY OF READING

Our magnifying lenses are especially designed to correct longsightedness. Ultra-lightweight and scratch-resistant, they offer you clear vision when reading (you’ll need to take them off to look at faraway objects). And, because reading isn’t just about books, we also offer a special version for screens and reading in the sun. No more stacking one pair on top of another!

HOW TO CHOOSE MY DIOPTER?

We offer diopters: from +1 to +3. It is important to choose the right diopter to avoid premature damage to the eyes. To find out your diopter, simply use our reading test!

SUN

Sunglasses

Maximum UV protection uncompromisingly coupled with unisex timeless design and optimum comfort.
Sunglasses guaranteed to become your faithful allies.

OUR CATEGORY 3 LENSES FOR EVERYDAY LIFE

Light’s intensity varies depending on the location, climate and geography. Various categories of protection exist to protect your eyes. Ranging from 0 to 4, each one corresponds to how much light is filtered, with five categories in total.

At IZIPIZI, we offer Category 3 lenses, the most common on the market. They absorb about two-thirds of visible light and are suitable as everyday sunglasses. Most of our lenses are grey, as this is the shade that renders natural colours most accurately.

100% UV FOR MAXIMUM PROTECTION

When the light is too strong, our pupils are unable to filter enough light to protect the eyes from ultraviolet rays (UV), which are extremely harmful. Our sunglasses offer 100% UV* protection, blocking all UV rays.

This protection is vital, even in cloudy weather—just because we can’t see UV rays doesn’t mean they aren’t there!

MODELS FOR ALL THE FAMILY

Our sunglasses are also available with dioptres for longsightedness (+1 to +3), and in Junior versions for 5 to 10-year-olds.

SCREEN

Screen glasses

Our SCREEN glasses make everyday life more bearable by filtering 40% of the harmful blue light emitted by screens, protecting your eyes and helping prevent fatigue and headaches.

BLUE LIGHT, A MAJOR CAUSE OF EYE FATIGUE

Sunlight contains blue light, making it essential to regulating many physiological functions.

Phone and computer screens and TVs all emit a more intense blue light, which causes digital eye strain (fatigue, dry eyes, headaches, watery eyes, blurred vision).

MODELS FOR ALL THE FAMILY

Our screen glasses are also available with dioptres for longsightedness (+1 to +3), and in Junior versions for 5 to 10-year-olds.

A SUSTAINABLE WAY TO USE SCREENS

Our SCREEN models have undergone special treatment so the lenses filter 40% of blue-violet light (emitted by screens) while letting through the blue-turquoise light essential to our well-being.
They help reduce eye strain, eye irritation and headaches.
NB. They look slightly yellow because this colour complements the blue and filters harmful rays.

BABY, KIDS, KIDS+ 

Glasses for your children

We’re here for you at every stage of life, right from the start: Our sunglasses for 0 to 5-year-olds offer ideal protection from UV light and come in all styles and colours!

MAXIMUM PROTECTION

The lenses of young children’s eyes are particularly fragile because, unlike adults’, they are permeable to UVA. This makes it important to protect your little ones’ eyes with sunscreen filters, especially as damage to children’s eyes increases the risk of adult eye disease.

Our 100% UV (UV 400) Category 3 polarised grey lenses provide maximum protection while respecting natural colours. They reduce light intensity and protect your children’s eyes from glare.

FRAMES SPECIALLY ADAPTED TO BABIES’ FACES

Sunglasses for babies need to be adapted to their morphology, which is very different from adults’ faces. Babies generally have flatter faces, more prominent cheeks and less-developed nose bridges. To protect their eyes, frames need to fit their faces perfectly, properly covering the eye area all the way up to the eyebrows.
Our ultra-flexible, bisphenol-A free and hypo-allergenic frames are perfect for babies’ daily adventures. The straight arms ensure they will adapt to your babies’ growth.
Our models come with a removable silicon strip to ensure they stay on tight.

HOW DO I CHOOSE THE RIGHT SIZE?

We offer three models: 
- BABY for 0-9 months (head circumference: 34-41 cm)
- KIDS for 9-36 months (head circumference: 40-47 cm)
- KIDS+ for 3-5 years (head circumference: 46-53 cm)

Ages are provided as a guideline only. To find the right size for your baby, please see our size guide based on head circumference:

SPORT

Our technical lenses

Sport should be all about fun, which is why we’ve designed a range of models to improve your vision and protect your eyes during all outdoor activities. No need to worry about glare, snow, wind or branches!

FIVE LENS TYPES

We have developed five types of lens, each designed to achieve maximum results.
By combining a specific lens tint with mirror treatment, we can offer the perfect solution in terms of light filtering, colour balance and visual contrast in a wide range of weather conditions.

SUITABLE FOR ALL TYPES OF WEATHER

VLT quantifies the opacity of lenses. It stands for “visible light transmission” and is expressed as a percentage.
A high VLT means the lens will allow a large amount of light through.

MAXIMUM PROTECTION

Sun protection is optimised with mirror treatment that also provides scratch resistance.

SLEEPING

Sleeping glasses

Your eyes regulate your sleep. By blocking artificial light before you go to bed,
these revolutionary glasses naturally kick-start melatonin production,
helping you quickly fall into a deep and restorative sleep.

YOUR EYES REGULATE YOUR SLEEP

Your brain is in sync with the rhythms of the sun, and secretes melatonin to fall asleep when the sun sets. Everything literally happens before your eyes, as they transmit information to the brain, telling it whether or not it needs to produce melatonin. This is what’s known as the circadian cycle.

Sleep is key to:
- Alertness, responsiveness
- Mood
- Learning capacity

As a result, it’s crucial for your body to be able to follow its natural circadian cycle.

BUT ARE DISRUPTED BY ARTIFICIAL LIGHT

We are exposed daily to artificial light that emits shortwave blue light at times that are out of step with the natural cycle: especially at night.

Artificial light experienced in the evening (from lightbulbs, screens, LEDs etc.) disrupts the secretion of melatonin, triggering:
- Difficulties falling asleep
- Shorter sleep cycles
- Fitful sleep that does little to repair and restore your body

REDISCOVER RESTORATIVE SLEEP

We joined forces with an optometry researcher to develop a pioneering solution: SLEEPING glasses.

The technology behind the GoodNight© lenses blocks artificial light, jumpstarting melatonin production and making sure you fall asleep quickly for a restful, restorative night.

DEFINITIVE
RESULTS

In partnership with Opinionway, we ran a survey of 300 people experiencing light or recurrent sleep disorders.

On average, the time it took them to fall asleep was halved (dropping from an hour to 30 minutes) Three out of every five felt the glasses had improved the quality of their sleep and the time it took them to drop off Effectiveness perceived as from the fifth day of use.

TESTER
FEEDBACK

“I find it easier to fall asleep and I wake up more refreshed.”

“A week on, and my sleep pattern has shifted: instead of falling asleep in the early hours of the morning, I’m dropping off around 11pm.”

“When I wear them, I get to sleep much faster than I usually do, even when I take my phone to bed.”

ACCESSIBLE MODELS

 We’re all about putting a smile on the faces of as many people as possible with our glasses.

That means offering models that are accessible when it comes to their price, timeless style and availability. It’s one of the founding pillars of the brand, and one that’s here to stay.

Accessibility, IZIPIZI’s guiding theme

NO-HOLDS-BARRED PROTECTION

Right from the start, we’ve promised glasses at a price that’s fair, and always will be. Because everyone deserves the right to eye protection, we work tirelessly to ensure our designs remain accessible to as many people as possible, without ever compromising our mission.

This means making choices that go beyond those of our production teams. This constant search for balance is what drives us and we’re proud to have stayed true to the goals we set. And we do this with you in mind.

AVAILABLE THROUGHOUT THE WORLD

To keep our promise, our glasses need to be available everywhere in the world. That’s why we spent years building close relationships with thousands of retailers and developing a broad distribution network across the globe.

IZIPIZI is never far away, no matter where you are!

STYLE FOR EVERYONE

Because we design our glasses with our product team in-house, we can push for high standards in every details.

This enables us to offer fun colours and shapes that are both on-trend and timeless, with frames to suit every face, which will last throughout the years.

This wide-ranging accessibility comes on top of high quality and high environmental standards: two things we will never compromise on—and that’s a promise!

GUIDED BY CREATIVITY

If accessibility is in our IZIPIZI DNA, so too is style. We never stop searching for shapes, colours and textures that are perfect in every way. From the bridge to the temple tips, nothing in a pair of IZIPIZI glasses was decided by chance.

SHAPES FOR
EVERY STYLE

As the saying goes, “Fashions may go out of style, but style never goes out of fashion.” In addition to our belief in the importance of the environment, we also belief in the powerful style of timeless design.

That’s why we create frames that can grow with you and stay just as appealing. 

CREATED IN PARIS TO SPREAD JOY THROUGHOUT THE WORLD

All our creations first come to life at IZIPIZI House in the centre of Paris. We are extremely grateful to have a passionate team whose many areas of expertise give our glasses their unique character.

While our optical engineer works on the angle of the lenses, our technical designer looks at the ergonomics of the arms, and other creative minds choose the perfect shades to go with them. Once all these talents have agreed on the perfect combination, our manufacturing partners step in.

EXACTING STANDARDS IN EVERY DETAIL

Designing our models ourselves means that we can apply our high standards and creativity to every part of our glasses.

From metal or plastic hinges, to rivets, arm size, temple angle and pantoscopic tilt, everything is carefully designed and chosen to ensure the perfect balance of comfort and style.

MATERIALS: ENDLESS POSSIBILITIES

While our Soft Touch texture is already one of IZIPIZI’s iconic signatures, in recent years our manufacturing partners’ expertise has allowed us to explore new territory in terms of raw materials.

By offering a different finish and grain, our glasses now look towards new horizons and promise some marvellous surprises in the future.

UNMISSABLE QUALITY

We want to create glasses you can use at every moment of your life. That’s why we’ve surrounded ourselves with specialised partners to bring to life products that last.

We work together each day to meet new challenges, and approach the future with impetuous enthusiasm.

EXPERTISE

We have chosen to work exclusively with partners that have specialised in the eyeglass trade for many years.

Through their unique skills, each one enables us to meet the present and future goals we have set ourselves, and which the planet holds us to. Their complementary skills allow our creative team the freedom to let their imaginations run wild, ever onwards and upwards.

TRUST                                                       

Like the style of our products, we believe in things that stand the test of time and so have built close relationships with our partners. The manufacturer that produced our first pair of glasses is still working with us more than a decade later.

We’ve grown, and so have they, thanks to our mutual, long-term support and drive.

HIGH STANDARDS

Before we do any work together, our partners must meet a precise set of specifications in terms of production quality (ISO 12312-1 for lenses, ISO 14139 and compliance with the European Regulation 2017/745 on medical devices and EN71 for our young children’s glasses) and CSR commitments. In order to continually strive for better, we review these agreements together several times a year to maintain a high level of engagement and competences.


All our glasses, whether new or renewed, naturally undergo repeated testing at various stages in their production to ensure they can withstand the strains of everyday life.

A CONTROLLED IMPACT ON THE PLANET

We are committed every day to the environment, our employees, and society by reducing our carbon footprint, enhancing our materials, promoting the well-being of our teams, and supporting charitable organizations.

REDUCING OUR CARBON FOOTPRINT

Our first Carbon Footprint, based on our 2019 emissions, allowed us to set

the goal of reducing the carbon footprint of our glasses by 50% by 2023.

A COMPREHENSIVE CARBON FOOTPRINT

 

We analyzed all our emissions across the 3 scopes defined by ADEME. This gives us a comprehensive understanding of our emissions and the means to define an action plan to achieve our goal.


Our approach: to reduce our carbon impact as much as possible before offsetting the unavoidable emissions.

In 2022, our carbon footprint per pair of glasses amounted to 1.58kg of CO2, a decrease of 47% compared to 2019!

Transportation and production are our major emission sources, on which we focus our efforts.

Our emissions related to transport have decreased by more than 60% compared to 2019, thanks to our strategy of reducing air shipments - which required a thorough review of internal processes, and the deployment of alternative solutions.
We are working on renewing our materials and managing our production waste to reduce emissions related to this activity area.
We are also streamlining all our advertising tools and the travel of our sales teams to improve our performance in the Sales and Marketing area.

We continue our reduction efforts, aiming to reach a balance of 1.49 kg CO2ee per pair of glasses by the end of 2023, a 50% reduction compared to our 2019 Report.

Discover the details of our actions in our Annual Report.

MAKING OUR MATERIALS MORE SUSTAINABLE

 

Our goal was to achieve 30% biobased production by the end of 2023, and we reached 48% of our production!
We have thus deployed a material 45% based on castor oil across all our new products and a significant portion of our existing catalog

 

 

Every day progress is made on materials, and we continue to explore alternative paths with even reduced impact. By the end of 2025, 100% of our production will use responsible materials, whether they are biobased, recycled, biodegradable...

 

ENGAGING WITH OUR EMPLOYEES

For the third consecutive year, IZIPIZI is certified as a Great Place to Work, demonstrating our commitment to a work environment and the professional development of our employees. This distinction underscores our shared ambition to cultivate a culture where well-being, the quality of relationships, and professional growth are priorities. We are eternal optimists, always looking for solutions and progress, ready to face challenges to continue advancing together.

A Shared Project

 

For over 10 years, we have chosen to make IZIPIZI a collective entrepreneurial adventure.

 

Every contribution counts, and it is the synergy of our actions that allows us to succeed together.

 

Thus, we promote the sharing and transparency of information, objectives, and results.

 

Our company rituals, our decision-making processes, and our supports are regularly reviewed to adapt to our challenges.

Strong values

Our values make us a united and committed team :

Team Development
 

Team development is at the heart of the IZIPIZI approach: whether professional, managerial, or personal.


We consider offering development opportunities a key element of our Human Resources policy.

 

 

AN ENVIRONMENT CONDUCIVE TO GROWTH

Developing our teams, supporting internal mobility, and facilitating promotions allow us to see further together.

 

Our managers are systematically trained and evaluated on their ability to grow and progress their teams.

 

A CULTURE OF PROGRESS

Training is also an essential element of our HR policy. In 2023, 60% of our employees benefited from a training action.

The Well-being of Our Team

Our team is at the heart of the IZIPIZI project.

Whether in our premises or outside work hours, the framework for living well is therefore essential.

IN OUR PREMISES

At IZIPIZI, the work environment is central to our concerns. Our headquarters, the IZIPIZI House in Paris, our New York office, as well as our stores in France and Europe, are designed to inspire and energize every team member. Our spaces encourage conviviality, sharing, and team spirit essential to our success.

OUTSIDE

Beyond physical arrangements, we strive to facilitate the daily life of our employees by offering a flexible telework framework, sports offers, and childcare solutions, thus facilitating the work-life balance of our employees.

ENGAGEMENTS EVALUATED BY OUR EMPLOYEES

With the aim of accuracy and continuous improvement of our actions, our employees are surveyed each year to express their feelings about HR performance, company management, and quality of work life. Thanks to their responses, we are proud to be certified as a Great Place to Work for the third consecutive year in 2023.

SUPPORTING CHARITABLE ORGANIZATIONS

 

 

Since 2022, we have been committed to two organizations: L’Union pour L'enfance and La Cloche.

The first aims to protect children, especially by supporting parents, and the second works to change how we view the world of the street. Missions that echo ours: to protect the eyes of the entire family, in all life's moments - including the most challenging ones.

We have committed to equipping the volunteers of these organizations, but most importantly, to financially supporting them for two years.

 

Our donations have enabled:

 

L'UNION POUR L'ENFANCE

Protecting children

By participating in the opening of a new center in Orne in 2022: "Les Crins Verts", to accommodate young people requiring adapted protection.

Preserving sibling groups

By proposing the creation of a reception facility for 30 young people, so that children can live daily with their siblings.

The project must be accepted by the city of Paris by February 2024 to proceed.

LA CLOCHE

Recreating social links in 2 new cities in 2022: Bordeaux and Montpellier through the distribution of meals, choirs, shared gardens…

Developing awareness actions in primary schools throughout 2022

Strengthening the Carillon network by opening 30 new businesses in Ile de France in 2023. This solidarity network of proximity between merchants, residents, and homeless people acts against extreme exclusion by offering free services and products to those who need them.

 

Through the Vendredi platform, we offer each of our employees the opportunity to dedicate two days a year of their skills to the charity of their choice. This platform simplifies the act of solidarity by connecting charities and employees who wish to engage.

Each employee can thus offer their time and skills to charities that are close to their heart.

 

 

In 2023, approximately 140 hours of volunteer work were carried out with a dozen charities.

 

 

 

Since 2018, we have been donating pairs to charities in need.

Tomorrow

Our donations - whether monetary, pairs, or skills - have allowed many charities to expand their actions in recent years.

However, we have observed that to offer a stronger impact potential, we must focus our efforts rather than spreading them too thin.


We have chosen to focus our donations on L’Union pour l’Enfance from 2024 onwards.

All our charitable initiatives will therefore aim to provide them with the means to support a cause that is dear to us: protecting the family.

 

 

 

 

WE ARE ON A JOURNEY, AND WE STRIVE TO IMPROVE WHAT CAN BE IMPROVED TO ADVANCE IN A MORE VIRTUOUS WORLD.
