Sunglasses Q&A

What Does The P in Ray-Ban Lenses Mean?

Sometimes, customers will buy a pair of Ray-Ban sunglasses without knowing they are polarized. There are those that will ONLY buy polarized lens sunglasses and others who really don’t care or really don’t know or understand what polarized lenses do.

WHAT ARE POLARIZED LENSES?

Polarized lenses are transparent material on a lens, could be glass or plastic, and block certain types of light waves. This is really to block as much glare as possible from hitting your eyes. If you go skiing, go fishing, drive in the sun a lot you’re best suited to purchase a pair of polarized sunglasses.

WHEN YOU BUY A PAIR OF RAY-BAN SUNGLASSES, WHAT’S THE P ON THE LENS STAND FOR?

The P on the Ray-Ban lens stands for just that, polarized. It’s a way to distinguish what lenses are polarized and which are not for customers. For example, some frames are sold in both polarized and non-polarized versions. In order to distinguish them, Ray-Ban has added a ‘P’ on the lens of the polarized ones.

This P is located on the left lens usually in white screen print along with the Ray-Ban logo.
