A simple question about the colors of ray-ban rx sunglasses

Postby Jean on Tue Mar 16, 2010 6:30 am

Hi.

When I look for example the top of this page (http://www.opticsplanet.com/ray-ban-rb3044-sunglasses-rx.html), I am allowed to choose from some frames and lens colors. Is it just about choosing the frame and choosing the lence color (among with other attributes) later (meaning for example that I can't get blue lenses)? If you compared the colors of rx polarized gray and polarized brown lenses (aviator) to the normal ray-ban lenses, what would be the the closest identical one in lense color? Is there a big difference?

I need to go to oculist in order to get a new receipt. But my sphre is not worse than -5.00 and cyl -1.00 anyway. Which lense type would you recommend?

Thank you very much and snowy greetings from Finland! :wink:

Does the gradient grey lense for rx ray-ban sunglasses look very similar to the non-rx version?

Thanks for the great questions

The first option found on order page of the Ray-Ban Prescription RB3044 is for the frames only. Pictured are the examples of frames which happen to have a colored lens inside(Original Ray-Ban Sunglasses). The second and third options would be for lens material and color. Most of Ray-Ban plano Sunglasses come with glass(crystal) lenses. However, when you place an order for Ray-Ban prescription sunglasses it allows you to custom design your purchase and choose the lens material that works better for you. Sometimes the color varies depending on the lens material. This leads me to your second question.

Polycarbonate is the probably one of the most popular materials for prescription eyewear. This is due to it's UV protection, scratch resistance, light weight and most importantly, it is shatter resistant. Please let me know when you get your script from your doctor and I would be able to give you a better recommendation.

Our lab would be able to match the Ray-Ban gray gradient color.

Hi again!

I got my receipt.

OD: -4.25 -0.50
OS: -4.0 -0.75

What kind of lense do you recommend? It seems that I need also the axis value but my optician apparently forgot to write it down.

I am interested in this model: http://www.opticsplanet.com/ray-ban-ico ... es-rx.html

I want to have polarized brown or grey lenses. I want to know what the color is like. Could you tell what's the closest one in colour of the lenses in that upper page? For example, is the gray more like #72/32 or #002/37?

Thank you very much. I'm looking forward to buying Ray-Bans from you! 8)

I would recommend either polycarbonate or High Index 1.67 lenses. In polycarbonate the lenses will be thicker, but they will be shatter resistant. It does not break in small pieces if damaged, it shatters instead (like a windshield). If you are planning to participate in some outdoors sports activities, this will be the material I would definitely recommend. You can also go with High Index 1.67. The lenses will be thinner, but the lens material is not shatter resistant.

Ray-Ban perscription sunglasses polarized gray lenses will look closer to non-prescription Ray Ban 3025 #002/37 rather than #72/32. Please note that you will need to select the preferred lens color from the "Select lens upgrade" menu when you place an order on-line.

Please let me know if you have any questions about our Ray Ban Rx sunglasses.
