Ray-Ban: Sporting the Style In The Philippines

When it comes to eyewear, Ray-Ban is definitely one of the first few brands that pop into people’s heads, especially in the Philippines. This may be because Ray-Ban shades are great for combatting the Philippines’ tropical climate. In 1944 General Douglas McArthur was one of the first to truly popularize the shades when photojournalists published several photos of him coming ashore here in the Philippines. 

Ray-Ban lenses have a level of UV protection that varies per model. The country has a UV factor score of 8.48 out of 10, making it even more practical to have a pair of Ray-Bans with you during sunny days. 

Here’s a guide on the types of lenses Ray-Ban offers. Make sure to check if your Ray-Ban has a CE mark that guarantees the shades have UV protection.

  • Classic lenses - absorb 85% of visible light and block most blue light.

  • Mirrored lenses - reduce glare for visual clarity and comfort.

  • Polarized lenses - block more than 99% of reflected light, eliminate glare, and enhance contrast.

Ray-Ban flatters most Filipino face shapes

Ray-Ban designs can be considered bulletproof in terms of style because it has a wide range of silhouettes that cater to a wide variety of face shapes. In one research, the most common face shape among Filipino women was oval, with 67 percent. Next was square, a far second with 11 percent. If you know your shapes, oval faces are the easiest to work with when it comes to eyewear. The facial proportions are balanced and the frames just have to be as wide as your face, not wider. 

To help you in this department, here are some crowd favorites from Ray-Ban. These shades like to keep up with the times and are dedicated to give your face some flair even after the years have passed:
