There’s no sunglasses brand as iconic as Ray Ban — and a classic style is on sale right now at eBay .
Created in the 1930s originally to increase the vision capabilities of pilots while flying, the classic Aviator style was born. And then came Wayfarers, the style that boomed in the ‘50s, dressed up the Blues Brothers in the ‘80s and was reborn in the 2000s.
With styles so engrained in culture, and a reputation for incredible durability and protection, Ray Ban sunglasses are a bit of a small fortune to invest in.
Given that the frames absorb 85 percent of visible light and block out most blue light, the cost (typically $150 to $200) makes sense. And, like any other adored product, the sunglasses rarely go on sale.
The unisex sunglasses have the most updated technology: The Blaze style is designed lens-over-frame, making a classic style we love futuristic and fresh. The modification also allows for a glasses-wearer to always keep a “natural vision” since the lenses transmit colors without modification.
In addition, the technology in a single pair of Ray Bans’ Wayfarers blocks 99 percent of reflected light, enhances contract, eliminated glares and reduces eye strain, according to the Ray Ban website.
