Which Wayfarer for a small face

Postby cajunjay on Tue Nov 22, 2011 9:44 pm

I want to buy two pairs of Ray Ban Wayfarer one RX the other as sunglasses.

I have a small face so have looked at the RB2132 but have read that the lense width is wider than the RB2140's which doesnt bode well when your prescription is around -9.00.

I need some advice as which Wayfarer would suit me best with a small face and high prescription as the rules are to keep the lenses small as possible when you have a high prescription or they will be very thick on the sides.

Please give me some advice.

Thanks you for the post. This subject has been written about quite a bit. Just remember; don't get frustrated! I would suggest the Ray-Ban Original Wayfarer Sunglasses RB2140 which offers a 47mm size. This is the smallest Wayfarer available. The style of the frame will conveniently hide most of the edge thickness and choosing a high index lens material will help as well. Check out my blog at
