Lovers of this brand will remember when the team in Paris designed SeeHome. “Reading glasses for seeing close up”. Because they stand in a fixed stand you can use them on your office desk. The Magnification was set at +2.5.

The product also came as a magnet which could be placed on your fridge. The magnification helped with the tiny print on tins and bottles.

The team have come a long way since then.

Reading Glasses part 2

Reading Glasses have become part of modern day life. There are essentially 3 types.

  • Men`s reading glasses.
  • Women`s reading glasses.
  • Unisex reading glasses.

Are they necessary

izipizi glasses


The middle ages

The monks in the middle ages were among the first to wear glasses.

They were not the fashionable specs of today. Theirs were round and made of metal which they perched on their noses.

The monks needed them for their laborious work writing lengthy manuscripts by candle light.

Many famous figures throughout history have worn them. Napoleon Bonaparte wore them at the battle of Waterloo.

Do they help?

As people grow older their near vision can deteriorate and reading newspapers or documents can become difficult especially in poor light.

People are amazed at the difference that a magnification can make to their reading experience.

Strengths of magnification

The strengths of magnification for reading are a +, whilst for distance they are a -.

For reading the standard magnification begins with a +1 and will increase by .25 and then .50 and then +2 etc.

An optician will be able to test a persons eyesight and prescribe the magnification needed for reading (+) and for distance (-).


The lenses are important. Buying cheap reading glasses can be a bad idea. The curvature of some lenses in the cheaper version can give a bad reading experience and strain the eye.

The more reliable lenses are called Aspheric. These lenses will be flatter and will give a more even reading experience.


The frames for glasses tend to be mass produced in the far east and are made from poly carbonate or from acetate which is a form of plastic.

Size and shape

It is important when choosing your reading glasses that you get the size and shape right for you face.

You will often see on the arms mysterious numbers and wonder what they mean. An example might be 140 x 40 x 140.

Usually the first number will be the length of the frame, so in our example it would be 140 millimetres.

The second number will be the depth of the lenses so that that would be 40 millimetres.

The last number is the length of the temple. By that we mean the length of the arm, so 140 millimetres.

You might also see the letters PD. These relate to pupil distance.

Can a necessity ever be a luxury

Well Yes!

We sell some beautiful reading glasses that are good looking products and from fashion brands around Europe.

Fashion Reading Glasses

Fashion Reading Glasses

Fashion Reading Glasses should be a marriage of style and quality. As reading glasses are a necessity the designs often tend to be dull and boring.

We believe in making a luxury item out of a necessity and stamping them with modernity. Giorgio Armani famously said ” The difference between style and fashion is quality”.

Eye Eye Design believe that IZIPIZI  Doubleice and Sempre Art have achieved this with their collection of fashion reading glasses. But what is the history behind fashion reading glasses….read onFashion Reading Glasses

History of Reading Glasses

The first reading glasses were invented by a monk called Salvino degli Armati in the middle ages.

These were rivet spectacles and must have been purgatory to wear.

The monks spent many hours a day writing and reading lengthy manuscripts, much like our modern day computer users.

The first sunglasses go back to the prehistoric times.

It is said that an Eskimo blinded by the sun`s reflection on the ice carved an aperture in a piece of bone and strapped it over his eyes.

fashion reading glasses

Fashion reading glasses did not truly come to the fore until the 1960s.

“Fashion eye wear”was largely undefined and its creators could and would try anything.

In this era optical companies threw caution to the wind and designed amazing pieces.

Mass market brands such as Foster Grant, Opti-Ray and Samco set the tone for fashion reading glasses.

The market grew bigger than ever.

Foster Grant retained the Geer DuBois advertising agency to devise a campaign.

Ad Age magazine would cite this as one of the best of the 20th Century.

The ads featured popular celebrities such as Woody Allen, Mia Farrow, Julie Christie, Raquel Welch and others.

Moving forward into the early 2000’s off the shelf reading glasses became uninteresting affairs especially in the United Kingdom.


Where we began

In 2013 My wife Judith and I were on holiday in Siena in Italy and Judith purchased a pair of velvet fashion reading glasses.

No one was selling fashion reading glasses like these in the United Kingdom.

Our next task was to trace the supplier in Milan and to start a fashion reading glasses company.

Sunnyreaders Ltd was formed later that year.

We established our 2 websites Funkyreaders.co.uk and eyeeyedesign.com.

Our brands of fashion reading glasses are now sold across the world.
