    just get puck lenses cut for your ray bans from an optometrist 100bux max
    your insurance might even cover it
    get the folding wayfarers they are worth the extra cost

        optometrist can cut you plastic lenses for any sunglasses which you can freely swap with the glass ones that come with the ray bans. with modern coatings they’re rather durable i’ve been throwing mine in a backpack with no case for 15ish years and theres like 2 scratches on them.

      How does lens color play into vision?
      I’ve seen these videos of people filming through special sunglasses and everything looks so crisp, no glare, like in full HD or something. What kind of special lenses are these?

          lenses are a huge autism rabbithole. i just told my optometrist to put whatever lens she would in if they were her sunglasses and i got a huge visual clarity boost over the glass ones that came with my wayfarers. i was mostly concerned with eye safety when i swapped mine so i didn’t go too deep into it.

          maui jim is quality all around.
          oakley has really good lenses too.

          shame maui jim couldn’t make an interesting style frame if they tried
          unironically since they got sold to kering they have been making the most interesting stuff to date
          oakley is good but waaaaaaaay overpriced. their lenses are nice and the tech is cool, but their frames are cheap as heck nylon with plastic hinges. they feel like happy meal toy glasses

            This is the thing. You have to scour Maui Jim’s site (and Amazon which has glasses they don’t even have on their site) and other secondary seller sites to find the frames you want WITH the lenses you want AND in stock. But once you find that diamond in the rough you will have the best sunglasses out there.

            I’m thinking about getting these. Saw them on Amazon and I think it’s a new frame style since it isn’t on their website. I like Amazon because if you don’t like em you just return em.

        Maui Jim has very good lenses. I worked at the hut and would always be impressed by their stuff.

    Optometrists can make lenses for pretty much anything. Just take your frames to an optometrist and ask what they can do

    Just go to the site and customize em. Here are tortoise shell Wayfarers with chromance lenses exactly like you want.

        Not sure. it’s Ray Bans’ premium lenses. They are supposed to enhance color like OP wants.

        I can’t find the video but it was some guy filming the sky during sunset and then filming it through some lens; without the lens, the sky just looked very bright and the outline of the clouds wasn’t clear, and once he filmed through the lens, the excess light was filtered out and the clouds appeared in full detail and contrast, while the color was actually more vivid.
        Are those a specific kind of lens or do all polarized sunglasses work like this?

          That just sounds like the exposure of the camera was corrected by the sunglasses lol. Any shades will do that. But Maui Jim probably have the best lens technology. The Ray Ban Chromance lens is almost as good, though, from what I’ve heard.

          Your eyes aren’t cameras. Just go try on a bunch at sunglass hut, lenses are different but you won’t be able to tell anything from holding sunglasses in front of a camera that already has its own lens. People here have said the Oakleys Prizm or some shit is similar to what you describe.

    I have a large nose bridge so nose pads on sunglasses leave red marks and are painful sometimes, so I’m looking for shades that can accommodate a wider nose bridge
    Should I get Wayfarers, pic rel, or another model?

    i have persols
    theyre good with the black lenses but they arent very durable. admitadly i wore mine nearly every day at work and didt take car of them but they broke after abt 15 months

    • Anonymous says:

      The Persol 649s? Did they break at the nose bridge? That’s actually a design flaw, they all break after a few years. It’s inherent to the design.

          They’re fine and he’s overblowing the "issue". Persol has notches in the bridge that allows it to flex but some people have had theirs develop cracks over the years where the notches are
          He said himself he wore them for years and never took care of them. His fault if they broke

    my folding wayfarers are about 18 years old and get thrown in hiking backpacks, kayaked with, kept in jacket pockets w/o case, etc all the time. flawless condition.
