Ray-Ban is a high-end manufacturer of sunglasses, founded in 1937 by Bausch & Lomb. Ray-Ban’s were introduced for the United States Air Force, and several Hollywood films found the Ray-Ban’s to be very elegant. In 1999, Bausch & Lomb sold the brand to the Italian Luxottica Group for a reported 1.2 billion dollars.
Ray-Ban is responsible for making the two most imitated sunglasses in the world: the Aviator and the Wayfarer. Introduced to the silver screen in 1961, the unique Ray-Ban lifestyle is embodied in its collections, reflected throughout hundreds of films, and remains the choice eyewear of celebrities both in real life and in films So what happens when you need your Ray bans repaired or Do you need to get your Ray Ban glasses fixed or repaired? Once you buy a pair of expensive sunglasses you want to make sure to take the proper precautions to care for them.
Always keep your sunglasses in their case when you’re not using them, and don’t clean the lenses with just your t-shirt (use the recommended cloth). If you take care of Ray Ban sunglasses properly they could last you a lifetime (my father still has his pair from the 1970’s). If you broke the frame, nose piece, lens, or even just scratched your sunglasses you might consider sending them in to be repaired. Ray Ban does offer a limited warranty against breakage on all their sunglasses, for more information check out their official website at www.ray-ban.com and click on the “services” link in the lower right hand corner.
Their website does say that “scratched lenses are normal wear” and are not covered under their warranty.
We have become an amazing journey, at eyewearrepairs.com, having always wanted an internet based business I have tried a few and failed to spot a gap in the market,or at least one at that makes money. It was purely by chance that we stated eyewearrepairs.com, a friend of mine repairs glasses for opticians in the uk, so I have helped him over the years with marketing of his business, and he has a good steady flow of glasses and repairs, 200 pairs a day, for opticians who sell repair to the customer at a retail price. The opticians being the middle man, whom we have no control over and as the multiple opticians grow there are less and less independent on teh high street so naturally the work is declining.
This is a good family business and the owners do everything in their power to repair the customers glasses but only charges a small amount leaving the opticians to make a profit and it helps with their customer service. A cynic might suggest that the multiples don’t want to repair glasses and prefer to sell new glasses which in reality does happen, which seems to be the gap in the market, and the internet the perfect medium to reach the 40 million glasses wearers in the uk and worldwide. At eyewearrepairs.com we repair glasses and sunglasses and supply parts for most makes and models of sunglasses worldwide, and ray ban parts, such as lenses and sides are very popular as well as ray ban repairs. Rayban does seem to be the most popular worldwide brand.
