Ray Ban prescription sunglass lenses with logo?

Postby Josh.G. on Wed Mar 18, 2009 9:29 pm

hi, i have been searching for prescription sunglass lenses for my ray ban wayfarers. i was wondering if ray ban makes prescription sunglass lenses? because (as you probably know) i still want to retain the ray ban logo that is placed on the upper left lens, and the RB etching they place on the right lens. is this possible?

basically, i just want my ray bans to look like as if they were a regular pair of ray ban sunglasses, so that people won't realize that i have prescription lenses.

Ray Ban does not have Rx Program and does not make their authentic prescription lenses. Ray-Ban did not authorize any lab to etch the Rx lenses with their RB logo either.

We sell Ray Ban prescription sunglasses on-line. We use authentic Ray Ban sunglasses and eyeglasses frames. We work with several largest labs in the US. The one that we use for Ray-Ban prescription sunglasses can match the Ray-Ban lens colors (like G-15, B-15, etc.). They do not mark the lenses though. Besides the logo on the lenses, your Ray Ban prescription sunglasses will look like regular pair of plano sunglasses. Unless you are ordering bifocals (the old version of multifocal lenses with a define line that separates the reading segment of the lens) nobody will be able to tell that you are wearing prescription sunglasses. Some people find prescription lenses even more beneficial than plano lenses. Since we make them to custom order, we can get you any lens material or lens upgrade. Plano sunglasses are available with a limited lens choice that they manufacture for each model. So, your new Ray Ban sunglasses could either look unique.

The only brands that offer the authentic Rx programs are Serengeti prescription and Bolle prescription. Serengeti is using their Cornea photochromic glass and Polarmax photochromic polycarbonate for prescription lenses. Bolle prescription sunglasses are available with polycarbonate lenses. The tints are authentic Bolle and Serengeti.

I think it is a shame that RayBan prescription lenses are not made up with the logo because what is the point in buying a Rayban pair over say a bog standard pair because the point in buying sunglasses with the Logo on in is so people know what you are wearing but people with an Rx can not wear them without altering them so to me that makes the just like any other bog standard pair of sunglasses x

Well, I see your point. But I tend to disagree with you. The logo on the Ray Ban sunglasses is usually very small, so even if is noticeable to the others, I don't think that anybody would pay attention whether your lenses have that logo or not. People usually pay more attention to the frames. And the frames are authentic Ray-Ban. In addition, you have a wide range of lens materials and upgrades to choose from. When a manufacturer runs their authentic Rx program, they usually use the same material their non-Rx lenses are made from. And as a rule, they can fit very limited prescription in. When you order Ray-Ban prescription sunglasses you can get the lens material that works best with your Rx. With the wide range of lens colors and upgrades our lab offers, you can choose a unique combination of lens colors and different coatings that correspond to your needs. You don’t have to overpay for the features that are not significant for you. So, every coin has two sides. :wink:

There are other eyewear manufacturers that offer Rx programs. Bolle prescription and Serengeti prescription are among those. They used to edge the Rx lenses with their logos. I had a lot of customers asking to contact the lab and instruct them not to put the logo on the lens as they find it distracting. Now Serengeti and Bolle stopped edging the Rx lenses at all and started mailing certificates of Rx lens authenticity with every order instead. But the thing that they stopped edging the lenses did not affect the lens performance at all! :D

I take on board what you are saying but feel it is a contradiction in it's self because why do then do rayban put on the lens logo on sunglass and retail outlets sell them to the public and the public buy the and wear them with the logo on. you would not buy any other designer product that as been altered in any way because it's lost the thing that made it stand out from the rest of the many sunglasses on the market and yes it is noticable but Rayban as allowed it's brand to be altered so why would I not just go then and buy some cheap look a like and have a rayban tinted Rx lens put into them and not pay the Rayban premium for something that I have to alter x

Well the logo is only noticeable if you are looking for it. If you need prescription sunglasses and love your Ray Ban shades, what's wrong with getting Rx lenses even though they won't have the logo? You can even customize the lenses to your benefit. And that's what thousands of people are doing. They don't want to buy a replica frame that would first of all look cheap, and second of all won't be covered by any warranty. The Ray Ban glasses even in the prescription form are covered by the warranty: the frames by Ray-Ban and the lenses by the lab. I wouldn't talk about it if I didn't talk to dozen of people every day who order Ray-Ban prescription sunglasses and are happy with their choice!
Ray Ban does not have have their own prescription program as of yet, so you can either spend time complaining that the life is not perfect, or ... get a pair of authentic Ray-Ban frames with high-quality Rx lenses customized to your specifications.

Hi all. Anyone know if it's possible to find the small logo decal and affix it yourself to your prescription lens? I'm looking to get prescription rb3025 "aviators". When I see someone else wearing my favorite shades, the first thing I look for is the logo to see if they're just another knock off pair, or if they really appreciate the brand that started it all. Losing the logo won't stop me from getting them, but it would be great to have it!. Sorry if I'm beating a dead horse here... I know "liz" is probably sick of hearing about the dang logo haha

Hi Andrew,

None that I know about ... I would not recommend putting a logo on the lens yourself. If you don't succeed with the logo, you might just damage the prescription lenses. We make Ray Ban prescription sunglasses RB3025 very often. You can place the order with us if you want to buy them.

Re: Ray Ban prescription sunglass lenses with logo?

Hi Liz,

I'm interested in prescription Ray Ban Wayfarers but I'm concerned about how close polycarbonate (possibly high index) prescription lenses will match the G15 non-prescription glass in appearance and how similar the view will be through the lenses (I really like the view through the Ray Ban official G15 lenses).

Also, does the lab you use tint clear prescription lenses and, if so, does this tint fade over time?

I've heard good things about Crizal Sun lenses (AR coating on the back only). Do you offer these lenses? My main concern is matching the G15 of the non-prescription Ray Bans in a reasonably durable way, and I'm willing to spend a bit more if I can do this.

Lots of questions. Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi txw,

Since the Ray-Ban authentic Rx program is not available yet, we use our own lab to fulfil orders for Ray Ban prescription sunglasses. We try to use the best lens materials available on the market today. So the tint should not fade a lot over time. We have not heard any complains of this kind from our customers so far and we are in prescription sunglasses business for a long time 8) Our G-15 prescription lenses are very similar to the original G-5s. You won't be able to see any significant difference. Keep in mind that Ray Ban makes G 15 lenses from glass, and if you order plastic prescription lenses (polycarbonate or high index) they will be lighter in weight.

Crizal is the brand that we use for AR coating and we usually apply it on the back of the sunglass lenses unless requested otherwise.

Please let me know if you have any other questions about our Ray-Ban prescription sunglasses collection, I'll be happy to answer them.

Re: Ray Ban prescription sunglass lenses with logo?

Liz,
Thanks for the information - it is extremely helpful to have someone who responds to customers. I do have a few more questions.

My prescription is in the -4.75 range (worst eye is -4.75), so I am inclined to get high index (1.67) lenses. Do the high index lenses take tint as well as other lenses?

Is tinting the only method available (as opposed to lenses that are manufactured with colored polycarbonate)?

Is the tinting process systematic, as opposed to a technician "eyeballing" whether the lenses look close to G15?

Do you have a sense of whether the edge of the lenses will show with the Ray Ban 2132 if I get 1.67 high index lenses (-4.75 sphere value)? If so, do you polish or roll the edge for appearance?

Finally, if I select AR coat on the order page, am I correct to assume that the coat will only be applied to the back of the lens?

Thanks again for all your help.
txw

Hi txw,

High Index 1.67 is a good choice for your prescription. It will make the lenses little bit thinner. Tinting is the only method available and the G 15 lens tint on High Index will look the same on them as on all other lens materials. The lab usually hides the thickness behind the lens. And in case the Rx is high and the lens edges stick out little bit out of the frames, the edges will be polished. You can just select AR from the menu without specifying where to apply it. We usually apply AR on the back of prescription sunglass lenses by default.

If you are interested in Ray Ban New Wayfarer prescription sunglasses RB2132, you can place your order here

Thanks again, Liz. I ordered the non-prescription version to make sure they fit and look good before ordering the prescription version. I tried some on in a store a year or two ago and liked them, but I want to be sure. For only $87 I might keep the pair of non-prescriptions for days when I wear contacts!

No problem. That's a good idea, especially if you have never tried on this model before. That's what a lot of people do before buying prescription sunglasses as a matter of fact. If you would like to, you can give me your order number and I will check the status.

It is going out of our warehouse today. You should receive an e-mail with the tracking number within next 12 hours. The package will probably be in transit for 2-3 business days as you chose UPS Ground. Once you get the tracking number you can check when the delivery is scheduled.

Hi Liz,
I received the sunglasses and decided the size 52 looks small on me. I stopped by the mall and tried the size 55 version and that looks great. So, that brings me back to my the issue of my prescription. Will you let me know if the following prescription will result in lenses that are too thick (extend beyond the frame) with the size 55 New Wayfarers? I plan to get high index 1.67 lenses.

R: -4.25 -1.00 015
L: -5.75 -1.25 160
PD: 64

Also, I just want to double check that the lab you use can closely match the Ray Ban G15 color and darkness on the high index 1.67 lenses. Sorry to obsess over this, I just want to be sure before committing the $s.
