Clarity and Protection
The lenses are shaped by diamond tools to achieve no distortion. This is done in order to achieve the greatest precision in the lens. Every single lens blocks 100% of the UVA and UVB harmful blue lights. UVA and UVB blue lights are no joking matter, so Ray-Ban worked extra hard on making sure the harmful rays do not penetrate the lens.
Durability Performance Test
No lens is shatterproof or unbreakable but Ray-Ban lenses are pretty close.
The lenses are 2x more resistant to impacts than common lenses. The Drop Ball Test was performed on the lenses where a steel ball is dropped on the lens from a height of 1.27m. After the chemical hardening, the impact resistance of Ray-ban glass is more than doubled.
The lenses are 12x more resistant to scratches than common lenses. This was proven with the Bayer Test. The Bayer Test took the lenses and placed them into an iron box, the lenses were submitted to 500g of a special abrasive sand oscillating for 600 cycles. Compared to the most commonly prescribed lenses (CR-39), they are 12 times more resistant, thus exceeding by far the international standards.
Resistant to UV light moisture, heat, organic solvents, sea salt, and sweat acidity; the lenses underwent the Quv Panel Test which confirmed all this. The Ray-Ban lens was exposed to consecutive cycles of UV light and moisture. The result after 120 hours of intense testing: no visible change in the color and no surface damages on the lens (crack, stripes… etc).
