Product Information

The Ray-Ban Original Wayfarer is possibly the most iconic frame in the history of eyewear! Initially designed by Raymond Stegeman in 1952 this time-honored frame is loved the world over. The RX5121 is available as both prescription glasses and prescription sunglasses, meaning you can wear this classic style all day long or just when the sun is shining.

The Original Wayfarer sunglasses have been worn by celebrities, musicians and other iconic figures such as Marilyn Monroe, Johnny Depp, Beyonce and even US President John F Kennedy! The brand first shot to fame amoungst the US military for providing functional protective eyewear with a fashionable edge, and has since been well loved by people from all walks of life.

The square shape compliments almost any face shape with the Ray-Ban logo discreetly on the temples and the sleek subtle curves give it a chic retro feel. The large lens is compatible with bifocal, varifocal and free standard single vision lenses so they are ideal for everyday regardless of your lifestyle, and give you the opportunity to inject some classic style into your look.

The Wayfarer style has been imitated countless times but none compare to the quality and style of the original!

Legendary and solid glasses




These glasses are legendary. I’ve got them as sunglasses as well and when I saw that it was, and for a low price, possible to get them as normal glasses too, I just had to get them. It took two weeks before they arrived. The packet they came in was solid and the glasses laid in an original Wayfarer case (it is also stamped Ray Ban and Wayfarer into the case). The prescription I ordered them with was correct. To were these glasses is kind of funny since they’re normally sunglasses, but they look cool and I feel cool too :P

do your research..




I've owned a pair of original wayfarer sunglasses in dark havana for 3 or 4 years - they're a great pair of glasses, fit well, comfortable, look good, feel robust. So when I got a new glasses prescription, I decided it'd be no-brainer to order the identical item as optical glasses and risk-free to order online as I already know the frames well.

However, when these glasses arrived from selectspecs, there are notable differences - the frames are slightly smaller and the colour is noticeably darker. I double-checked my order online against my original wayfarer sunglasses and it's accurate, as well as being accurate to the glasses received however they are different. Had I known this, I wouldn't have ordered the glasses as the minor differences in size and colour really make a difference to how well they suit my face.

Overall I'm quite disappointed, not with the quality of the product or service from selectspecs, just with the accuracy of the specifics of the glasses (actual dimensions and colour against those listed online). I guess there's a tough lesson there for me about forsaking the highstreet and the risks associated with ordering online. says:
Hi, thanks for the review. There are 2 sizes available for this model, are you sure you ordered the same size as previously? We're unaware of any changes of sizing from Ray-Ban.

Original Ray Ban Wayfarers with prescription lenses




These took a while to come but were worth waiting for. Original Wayfarers with dark polarised lenses, spot on.
Only noticeable difference is that the tiny Ray-Ban logo is missing from the prescription lens.
Complete frames and lenses delivered to your door for less than you would pay for the standard sun specs in a department store. says:
Hi, Ray-Ban optical frames do not come with the small RB logo on the lens, this only applies to non-prescription Ray-Ban sunglasses.

Very Dissatisfied




From the picture, I was not aware that the style of the frames were at an angle. Therefore when I received the glasses, I was shocked to find that they were styled in that manner. I still am in the process of trying to receive a refund for the frames, to which selectspecs refuses to provide a FULL refund for the ordeal even though the picture that they advertise for the frames does not clearly show the frames being at an angle. says:
Hi, sorry to hear this. The RX5121 Wayfarer are styled in this manner, it's the design of the frame and not a defect. We cannot provide a full refund for this product as there's no defect with the frame or lenses.

We always advise customers to try on frames at a local optician where possible, to get an idea of what frame style is suitable for their needs.
