Wayfarer

These sunglasses have been manufactured by Ray-Ban since 1956, which has been a part of the Italian Luxottica Group since 1999. Extremely popular nowadays, at one time they were in danger of being discontinued due to declining sales. The designer Raymond Stegeman invented them as a way to move away from the traditional metal frames found at the time.

Here are some of the main qualities to look for while choosing your future sunglasses:

  • UV Protection: search for sunglasses which have a high UV protection rating and block both UV and UVB rays. We suggest a rating of 3, as they are best for everyday use and diverse activities
  • Polarized Lenses: don’t try to save money by skipping these, as reducing harsh glare protects your eyes in the long run
  • Lightweight: try not to get bulky frames, so that you glasses aren’t too heavy
  • Comfortable: choose sunglasses that will make you feel comfortable!
