This is simply the most recognizable style in sunwear. The distinct shape of the Original Wayfarer RB 2140 is paired with the traditional Ray-Ban signature logo on the sculpted temples. After its initial design in 1952, the Wayfarer quickly endeared itself to Hollywood filmmakers, celebrities, musicians and artists, solidifying its iconic status for years to come.
100% UVA/UVB Protection - These lenses provide complete protection from the harsh rays of the sun.
Polarized Lenses - Ray-Ban polarized lenses reduce reflections and enhance contrast to improve visual clarity and reduce eye strain. All Ray-Ban polarized lenses bear a distinctive “P” next to the Ray-Ban logo on the right lens and are treated with an anti-reflective coating.
Impact Resistant - Ray-Ban lenses are 2x more resistant to impacts than the industry standard. All Ray-Ban lenses are tested to withstand the impact of a steel ball dropped from 1.27 meters.
Scratch Resistant - Ray-Ban lenses are tested to withstand 500 grams of a special abrasive sand oscillating for 600 cycles. Compared to the most commonly prescribed lenses (CR-39), Ray-Ban lenses are 12 times more resistant to scratching than the industry standard.
Element Proof - All Ray-Ban lenses must undergo 120 hours of exposure to UV light, moisture, heat, organic solvents, sea salt and sweat acidity, without exhibiting any visible change in the color or surface of the lens.
These measurements include the diameter of the lens, the width of the bridge and the length of the arms in that order.
Pro Tip - Are polarized sunglasses better? Are they worth the price?
In many cases, yes. All sunglasses reduce brightness and block some amount of harmful UV rays. However, only polarized sunglasses are scientifically constructed to eliminate glare. Not just reduce it, but eliminate it. Polarized sunglasses are ideal for driving, where you get glare from your dash, your windshield and other vehicles. They perform much better than standard sunglasses – reducing eye strain and helping you see better – around water, snow, sand or any other reflective surroundings.
