I have always believed that good sunglasses are very important to protect my eyes from the sun (assuming that we have a summer when the sun actually shines brightly for any length of time).
Over the years I have tried many different brands but finally settled on Ray Ban. My first pair cost me just £20 around 10 year ago.
That was a lot to pay for sunglasses in those days.
On a trip away to Palma I came across Ray Ban orbs at just 70 Euros which was around £50 pounds at the time. This had to be a real bargain as I have seem Ray Ban Orbs for sale in excess of £100.
As far as I can tell they are the real thing, and I say that before I get comments about fake goods. I bought these from a reputable outlet in Palma.
These sunglasses have frames made from titanium which makes them very strong but light to wear and the lenses have a pleasing oval shape to them and are made of strengthened glass as opposed to acrylic, or even plastic as is the case in some cheap imitations..
They also have the Ray Ban logo on the arms and on the top of the lens.
There is a choice of frames available and these range from Arista, Gun Metal, Black and Brown. I chose gun metal as I have a very light coloured complexion, brown doesn't suit me and black is too harsh.
You can also choose from classic Ray Bans or mirror lenses. I opted for the classic lenses. These provide a 100% UV block, so you get total protection and they have silicone nose pads to stop you getting those horrible red patches on the sides of your nose from where the sunglasses have been sitting.
Since I bought these I would never go back to cheaper sunglasses. They give great protection from UV sunlight and not so dark that they make it impossible to read outside in the sun.
There's nothing better in my opinion .than laying in the sun beside the sea and reading a good book.
I trust my Ray Bans to protect my eyes from damage and to stop them feeing itchy and sore from too much bright sunlight.
They are well worth the money.
I’ve seen lot of sunglasses, which look good, but just was not good Then I got a pair of ray ban orbs, which give sunglasses a new name top of the ranger but with a big price tag. Well if you like thing that look nice and are excellent sunglasses then the ray ban orbs are what you want to get They look good, easy to clean, and all that I would get them again and again but do they cost to much, I would say yes the cost is £159.99p which is a lot of money, and who would buy them, well I know I did because I like them and I have the money so what if I did not have, I would not get sunglasses that cost me £159.99p and why do they cost so much you are paid in for the name and that is it or are you would you get the some from a pair of £9.99 sunglasses, no you would not The ray ban orbs change with the sun to stop you light from get to much for your eyes and you would not get that for £9.99 and you can for £159.99 and you get a big named pair as well
