Product Description

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!

  The glasses are great and I'm a happy customer

22nd June 2020

First, it is important to note that I have been a customer of the site for some time and I am always very happy with my purchases. This time we had a problem with the shipping that was quickly resolved and I received my glasses in Brazil in perfect condition, the glasses are beautiful! Always remember to place the order with shipping with tracker, this is very important. In addition the glasses are beautiful and I am very happy!

  Glasses are too tight fitting

31st March 2020

My glasses are too tight and uncomfortable. I guess it is the arms which are causing this.

Fit - Too small I wouldn't recommend this product


15th April 2019

I’m 50 and on and off have been wearing Rayban since the mid 80’s, and while the quality seems to have dipped a few years back, these are right back on form.
Solid, well fitting, comfortable and at a price that beats every other retailer.
I’m a very happy (repeat) customer.

  Absolutely perfect

5th February 2018

I took a risk at buying these glasses without even trying them on to see what I look like. I am pleased to say they fit perfect and I’m incredibly pleased with them!!

Just a couple of minor things - I did notice a small amount of residue (dunno what it was!) was left in the inside of the frame which when I come to wipe off or clean, it’s left the tiniest of score mark, which I’m disappointed about. Also I would say that the order took a little longer than expected...

With that aside, I couldn’t recommend Select Specs any higher, these glasses are perfect and I no longer feel the tiredness I used to get when sat at the computer for a long time.

Thanks a million! 5*

  Best fitting glasses yet

25th December 2017

Have had lots of compliments on the look and style of these glasses. They are also the best and most comfortable fitting glasses I’ve had straight out of the case-no adjustment has been necessary. Thank you.
