Ray-Ban RX5121 - Original Wayfarer
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.

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.

I already have glasses, how do I find out their size?
If you have a pair of glasses that are a perfect fit, you can usually find the frame size information on the frame - usually on the arm or the bridge.
What to look for?
You will often find a variety of information on the frame, including model number, branding and frame sizing. The numbers you are looking for will be similar to this format 150 - 22 - 50 although this can vary from manufacturer to manufacturer. These numbers provide the following information:-
150 - Arm / temple size (in mm), a 3 digit value normally ranging from 120 - 150.
