Ray-Ban is a brand leader in more ways than one. It is a leader when it comes to variety. This market leader has a wide selection of prescription eyeglasses and sunglasses for men, women and children. There are Ray-Bans for everyday protection from the sun, for correcting vision problems, for sports and for driving.

Ray-Ban also stands out for its design. Ray-Ban frames vary from classic aviators to Clubmasters, Wayfarers and Cats. Color options also abound, with plastic or metallic frames coming in eleven colors and lenses in ten colors. Another outstanding Ray-Ban offering is the Rare Prints special series that combines bold patterns with the original Wayfarer design.


Headquartered in California, Oakley’s reputation for trendy and stylish sports gear is also well known all over the world. They offer sunglasses and prescription eyewear for men and women. The sunglasses options are broad, including customized, active, polarized, sport, lifestyle and Asian fit. There are also special edition sunglasses that boast designs inspired by athletes, sports, charities and artists. The Special Edition Tour De France Radarlock Path, Team USA Fast Jacket XL, Kevin Vandam Signature Series Polarized Fast Jacket XL sunglasses are a few of these specialty lines.

Options are broad when it comes to primary frame colors. Lens color options include grey, brown, black and blue/purple. Oakley offers prescription ready, polarized, iridium and gradient glasses. With so many options, you’re sure to get a pair of glasses to suit your specific needs, preferences, lifestyle and personality.

The Oakley brand also stands out for innovation. Oakley created HDO-3D, high definition optics that offer the highest levels of clarity and eye protection. HDO uses patented technology that has surpassed the standards set by the American National Standards Institute. Impact protection is another show of Oakley innovation.
