Umizato was started by Yolanda and Gary back in 2015. Yolanda's family has an extensive background in the eyewear industry and with a little help with Gary's technical background, Umizato was born. From Umizato’s inception, Yolanda and Gary have meticulously curated only the highest quality acetate, carbon fiber, titanium and metal frames for their customers. Umizato was one of only a handful of online eyewear companies offering Trivex lenses for their Rx glasses — a material which has a much lower profit margin (as it normally was pretty expensive), but which provided customers with a much better value because of its superior optics. As we have transitioned to computer glasses, we still carry only top tier materials for our frames.
