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.

AND A LIMITED IMPACT ON THE PLANET

We work hard every day to reduce our carbon footprint, increase the durability of our products, look after our staff and support charitable initiatives. In 2023, we were awarded B Corp certification, a highly rated designation that reflects our commitments and dedication to continuous improvement.

IMPROVING OUR
ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT

Our objectives:
- To halve our carbon footprint by the end of 2023
- To use biosourced materials with 30% of our models by the end of 2023

TAKING CARE
OF OUR STAFF

WORKING WITH
CHARITIES

Our mission really comes to life when reflected in concrete actions that have an effect far beyond life at IZIPIZI.

We are on the right path, aiming to evolve with you, in total transparency and always with a smile.

Improving our environmental impact

We have been paying close attention to our impact on the environment since 2018, and have set out two main long-term commitments designed to change the future through our actions in the present:

A COMPREHENSIVE CARBON AUDIT

With help from our specialist partner Carbo, we analysed all our emissions according to the three scopes defined by ADEME (French environment and energy management ggency). We now have an overall understanding of our emissions, and the means for an action plan to achieve our goals.


We are aiming to limit our carbon impact as far as possible and find a way to offset irreducible emissions.

UPSTREAM TRANSPORT

This refers to transport between our production centres and our storage facilities.

Air transport has a heavy impact on our emissions, which is why we’ve set the goal of limiting air transport to just 3% of our upstream transport.

DOWNSTREAM TRANSPORT

Downstream transport refers to shipments sent from our
warehouse to our stores and retailers.
Since 2021, we have worked with partners who offer offset solutions for the carbon emissions generated by these shipments.

Our goal is for 80% of the emissions from EU orders to be offset by the end of 2022.

PRODUCTION

We have implemented a sustainable procurement policy.
In order to get our partners as invested as possible in reducing their emissions, we will be helping them complete their own carbon audits by the end of 2024.

Making our materials more sustainable

In 2021, we set the goal of making 30% of our production biosourced, i.e. made from plant-based materials. We are also exploring alternative avenues in parallel.

OUR FIRST
BIOSOURCED MATERIAL

In 2021, we introduced a new material composed of 45% castor oil, offering the equivalent reduction in fossil fuels.

To roll out this biosourced material permanently to the rest of our products, we will need to update our entire production system.

Changes have been implemented gradually since 2022 so that all new products can be made available in this material.

ALTERNATIVES

Progress on materials is made every day, so we are also exploring alternative solutions to biosourcing (recycled/biodegradable materials, etc.).

With our kids models in particular, the constraints are different and we need to find alternative approaches that will still allow us to improve our environmental impact.

Taking care of our staff

Being happy and making others happy is a key part of IZIPIZI’s approach.
Discover how prioritising our teams’ well-being and personal development helps us to dream bigger, together.

A SHARED VISION

For over a decade now, we’ve been pulling together as a team to come up with an offer, mission, and business that reflect who we are.

AMBITIONS

All our development goals are shared with the entire business in complete transparency and with all functions.

We build our projects as collaboratively as possible to ensure everyone feels involved and uses all their energy and skills to help others.

We’re moving up in the world fast, while taking the time to learn from our various experiences and look back on what we’ve achieved, so that we can grow together harmoniously.

CAREER DEVELOPMENT

We want to grow and develop together.

Performance appraisals, development interviews and training are carried out regularly to help everyone build on their skills and support internal mobility.

And we actively encourage this through conferences and brainstorming workshops on topical issues accessible to all!

QUALITY OF LIFE

Our team is central to the IZIPIZI spirit, meaning that whether on our premises or off the clock, we make lifestyle and quality of life a priority.

ON OUR PREMISES

The IZIPIZI House (our HQ in the heart of Paris) and our various stores are designed to make sure each member of staff feels right at home in the workplace. They put the emphasis on fresh, contemporary design for a relaxed environment, accessible technology and little extras that make life easier. Spaces where staff can meet and mingle are provided for our teams to relax and socialise.

OUTSIDE OF WORK

Outside the office, we are keen on making life smooth and easy for our staff off company premises, with flexible remote-working opportunities, access to Gymlib sports offers and workplace childcare services.

OUR TEAMS SAY IT BEST

Good intentions are one thing—making them happen is another. Every year, all members of staff are surveyed so we can gather feedback on their quality of life as well as the company's HR and managerial practices. And we’re proud to say that their responses have earned us “Great Place to Work” status. In 2022 we even ranked in the top 25 companies in our size category.

Working with charities

Our mission really comes to life when it is reflected in concrete actions that have an effect far beyond life at IZIPIZI. That’s why we work tirelessly to support charity associations and encourage our staff to get personally involved too.

Our goal is to bring joy to as many people as possible, at every moment in life, even the most difficult.

Taking care of everyone

For several years, our leitmotiv has been to protect the eyes of everyone in the family, from parents to newborns. That means family is at the heart of the IZIPIZI project and in everyone’s minds.

That’s why we support the Union pour l’Enfance association, which works to protect children from harm, notably by supporting parents.

THE UNION POUR L’ENFANCE MISSION

“Every child has the right to a childhood
and every young person the right to a future.”

Since it was first founded in 1888 by two pioneering activists, Pauline Kergomard and Caroline de Barrau, the Union pour l’Enfance has fought to offer young children the best facilities and opportunities so they can grow and develop unhindered.

They achieve this through three-pronged approach focused on:
Protecting children
Preventing any disengagement
Parental support

OUR COMMITMENTS

We have committed to a finance donation over a minimum of two years to support the association’s main projects.

Additionally, IZIPIZI regularly donates glasses to the Union pour l’Enfance’s volunteers, hosts and guests.

IN CONCRETE TERMS

Our commitment enables the Union pour l’Enfance to fund practical projects and achieve its priority objectives. Such as:

PREVENTING AND COMBATING DISENGAGEMENT

Renovating the Agape Anjou school to ensure that young people learn to use new equipment responding to the requirements of various production industries.

PARENTING SUPPORT

Creating a children’s guesthouse to give struggling families a break and help restore the parent-child bond. The aim here is to do everything possible to prevent children being taken into care.

PROTECTING CHILDREN

Opening a new centre for young people who need adequate protection and support.

Being there at every moment in life

There are many ways to make someone happy. Our goal is to do it with glasses.

The La Cloche association does it by helping the homeless. Having someone there to listen and help in difficult times can put a smile back on the face of people whose lives are far from easy. That’s why we support the actions of La Cloche.

LA CLOCHE’S MISSIONS

Founded in 2014 by Louis Xavier-Lecat, La Cloche hopes to change the way we think of people on the streets.

To do this, the association works to prevent homeless people being excluded, by building close relationships and developing local solidarity. Every inhabitant and shop in the area can play their own small part in helping everyone find their place in society, even those it sometimes forgets.

OUR COMMITMENTS

We have committed to a finance donation over a minimum of two years to help with actions planned for the near future.

IZIPIZI also donates glasses to the association’s volunteers, to both give them pleasure and protect their eyes.

IN CONCRETE TERMS

Notre soutien à La Cloche va notamment permettre à l’association d’optimiser plusieurs projets comme…

Our support for La Cloche notably enables the association to maximise the reach of its projects, such as:

REBUILDING SOCIAL BONDS

Distributing meals, running choirs, organising group vegetable plots, etc.

These concrete actions to fight exclusion will soon be extended to two new towns in France.

CHANGING THE WAY PEOPLE LOOK AT LIFE ON THE STREETS

This begins at a young age, which is why La Cloche hopes to to roll out more information and awareness campaigns on inclusion in elementary schools.

ENABLING EVERYONE TO GET INVOLVED

Organising educational workshops with volunteers and anyone interested, explaining the simple gestures and key actions for taking a new approach to homelessness.

Our solidarity is driven by our staff

IZIPIZI’s commitments and principles would mean nothing if they weren’t shared by the brand’s employees. They are the ones who work daily to make IZIPIZI what it is. We are proud to be able to offer them the chance to donate their skills and time to the association of their choice via the Vendredi platform.

VENDREDI’S
MISSION

Vendredi is a civic engagement platform that encourages us all to get involved in our preferred causes by making it easy to coordinate charitable actions within businesses.

OUR
COMMITMENT

IZIPIZI offers its staff the chance to dedicate two working days a year to charitable actions.

IN PRACTICAL
TERMS...

Two days per year per employee
Over 1,000 hours in total in 2022
90% of our staff have already taken part

DONATING WHAT WE DO BEST

In addition to these financial contributions, IZIPIZI constantly donates glasses to charities in need. Recent examples include:
