Ray-Ban Prescription Glasses
In search of a sunglass that could protect pilots' eyes from damaging sun rays, on May 7, 1937 Ray-Ban officially took out a patent for the now iconic Aviator - America's first sunglass designed to filter out UV rays. And with that Ray-Ban was born.
Iconoclastic + cool, they're worn by movie stars, rock icons and trendsetters all over the world. The range of Ray-Ban Prescription Glasses includes Classic Acetates, Stylish Metals and Lightweight Rimless Frames.
We also offer a range of traditional ophthalmic lenses for the Ray-Ban Prescription Glasses. The range includes options for thinner and lighter lenses, Transitions adaptive lenses and Anti-Reflection options.
Ray-Ban Prescription Glasses Frame Technology
The Carbon Fibre range features reinforced plastic resin sheets in its wrap temples, consisting of seven different layers of carbon fibres mixed with resin. The sheet then gets water-cut to form the shape of Ray-Ban's slimmest wrap temples. The result product is a light, strong, flexible and highly resistant frame. The glasses are further enhanced by Monoblock hinges, which include no welding in the front frame for additional strength.
Carbon Fibre is one of the most advanced performance materials available, consisting of very thin fibres to give it a remarkable strength-to-weight ratio. Several thousand carbon fibres are twisted together to form a yarn which may be used alone or augmented with plastic resin and moulded to form composite materials. Once applied in the most technologically advanced fields, nowadays with thanks to a high commitment to innovation and advanced technology, Ray-Ban has succeded in the application of this advanced material to offer a brand new range of frames that pave the way for innovation.
The Carbon Fibre's end-pieces are rubber-injected, along with an embossed Ray-Ban logo on the inside, providing comfort and a strong grip. The bridge is easily flexed and adjusted so they can comfortably fit on faces of all shapes.
