When it comes to Ray Ban sunglasses Sale, there are some frame shapes that never go out of style: wayfarers, clubmasters and aviators. And Ray-Ban, who celebrate their 75th anniversary this year, remain the go-to brand for connoisseurs of this perennially cool trinity. To celebrate the milestone (and perhaps with one eye on the rumoured Top Gun sequel in the works), Ray-Ban are about to release this capsule collection of four limited edition aviator styles with ambermatic lenses.
The history of the Ray-Ban aviator dates back to 1929 when General John MacCready, a US army Air Corps lieutenant, commissioned a team of technical design experts to create army pilot goggles that would stop his men suffering headaches and nausea caused by glare at altitude.
Originally known as ‘Anti-Glare’, the glasses were soon rebranded to emphasise how this new accessory could effectively block (Ban) sun rays (Ray). With foresight, the company saw an opportunity to bring their frames to the masses, and in 1937 the Ray-Ban Aviator was born, becoming an instant classic. A status they’ve retained ever since.
Always innovating, Ray-Ban introduced the light-sensitive photochromic lens in 1978. ‘Ambermatic’ is a special yellow lens that darkens depending on light and temperature conditions. By transitioning from yellow to brown, the lens technology blocks glare and highlights outlines and shapes, even in the snow.
The newly launched ambermatic aviators will be available at Sunglass Hut from June. Hopefully by then we’ll have some sun.

Cheap Ray Ban Sunglasses not only protect your eyes from direct sunlight but can be a stylish addition to any wardrobe while you’re enjoying outdoor activities. Today most sunglasses lenses are made from plastic, so it’s easy for them to develop scratches. It’s not good for your eyesight to wear sunglasses with scratch lines running through your field of vision, especially if they’re prescription lenses. Fortunately you don’t need to purchase replacement sunglasses due to a scratch or two, since most of the time, scratches can be repaired using products found right in your own home.
Scratched Ray-Ban sunglasses can be repaired through various methods such as applying brass or silver polish, toothpaste, water mixed with baking soda, vehicle wax or lemon pledge. Also, the Ray-Ban company offers a repair service for damaged Ray-Bans without a warranty. The company charges a non-refundable processing fee, but does notify the customer of the expected repair cost before fixing the sunglasses .
Before having the Ray Ban Sunglasses Wholesale repaired by a professional, there are numerous possible home remedies that may repair the scratch. Brass or silver polish can be soaked onto a cotton ball and then rubbed onto the scratch to try to buff the scratch out. It’s important to remove any leftover polish, or any applicant for that matter, with a soft, clean cloth, so it doesn’t dry and stick to the lens.
A similar technique can be used with toothpaste, in fact. Make sure that the toothpaste isn’t abrasive and contains no mint flavoring, whitening agents or gel, as greater damage to the lenses could occur. By rubbing the toothpaste into the scratch with a cotton ball and then rinsing off the toothpaste ten seconds later, the scratch may be easily repaired.
Mixing one part water with two parts of baking soda is another way to make a paste. The technique is similar to using toothpaste, where rubbing it into the crack and letting it sit for ten seconds before washing it off can help to remove scratches. Vehicle wax and lemon pledge can also be used to buff out scratches. If these techniques do not work, though, the scratches may be too deep to repair with home remedies. Ray Ban Sunglasses Online also can be fixed .
