Ray-Ban glasses are, quite simply, the epitome of cool. From classic wayfarers and aviators to octagonal goggles and everything in between, there’s a Ray-Ban style for everyone. Whether you’re after reading glasses or polarized sunglasses, you can find the perfect pair of Ray-Bans at SmartBuyGlasses.
Ray-Ban glasses are probably the most famous of all optical brands. Since the brand was founded in the USA in 1937, it’s developed a cult-like following. But why?
For starters, Ray-Ban glasses aren’t just fashionable - they’re functional. Originally designed for aviation use, their shape and polarized lens helped to reduce the impact of glare from sunlight, fogging, and wind resistance. These practical applications soon transferred to outdoor activities on the ground, such as shooting, and their presence grew among mainstream society.
After being worn by Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast and Tiffany’s and James Dean in the iconic Rebel Without A Cause, their popularity as a fashion item skyrocketed. They’ve since been worn constantly by famous artists, musicians, royalty, and celebrities, keeping them constantly on trend.
With the brand’s firm commitment to both retaining their iconic formative glasses and growing their audience by releasing new limited edition lens colors, shapes, and styles - such as classic, mirrored, and polarized lenses, Ray-Ban’s popularity continues to grow.
When choosing your Ray-Ban glasses, consider your face shape.
Although every face is different, they typically fall into one of four shapes: round, oval, square, or heart. Understanding your face shape and what you like and dislike about it is a great way to begin narrowing down your options when searching for men’s sunglasses, women’s sunglasses, and prescription glasses or prescription sunglasses.
You can make an informed purchase by reading more about factors such as the width of the frame and the type of lens, including circular, rimless, or rectangular. Evaluate whether lighter frames, such as those made of metal, suit your eyes and face better than thicker frames like polycarbonate or plastic.
You'll find a guide on the website on how to figure out your face shape, but here is a quick style overview:
• Oval face shapes have a narrow forehead and chin, with wide cheekbones. Glasses which typically suit these faces include retro cat eye frames, frames with embellishments, and standard (not oversized) frames.
• Square faces feature a strong jawline and cheekbones, with a wide forehead. They can really rock retro frames with round and oval shapes.
• Round faces have a soft chin, full cheeks, and a broad forehead. Wayfarer frames look fantastic on round faces, as do glasses with rectangular lenses and bright colors and prints.
• Heart-shaped faces have a wide forehead and high cheekbones, with a narrow jawline. All frames with patterns, wraparounds, and Wayfarer shapes fit heart faces.
Of course, these are just guidelines. If you find a pair of designer glasses you absolutely love, but they are the opposite of what the face shape guide suggests, then just go for it. Your personal style is unique to you, and we’re here to help you discover it.

All you need to get started is an up-to-date glasses prescription and your pupillary distance measurement. If you have any eyewear or prescription-related questions while you shop, you can ask one of our friendly local optical partners online via the pop-up chat window located on the bottom right of the screen.
Simply choose your favorite Ray-Ban glasses, add your frames to your cart, upload your prescription (if relevant) and select any add-on treatments (like polarization) during the checkout process. We’ll then process your eyewear order, and assuming your chosen frame is in stock and depending on whether you chose clear glasses or your new spectacles require a prescription or additional treatments, have them on their way to you within 2-4 working days.
We offer free shipping for all orders over $30 - to anywhere in the world, including APO/FPO military postal addresses. Once your glasses have left our warehouse, you’ll receive package tracking information, and you should have your new spectacles within 5-8 working days.
When you shop for Ray-Ban glasses with us, we want you to feel confident about your purchase. That’s why (as long as your glasses are unused and in their original packaging) we offer a full refund or exchange within 100 days - including glasses with prescription lenses.
We also offer an exclusive 24-month warranty against all manufacturer defects on our glasses and sunglasses, without exception (3 months for contact lenses). What’s more, our best price guarantee means if you find a lower price online within 14 days of your purchase, we’ll beat it by $2!
