Ralph Lauren oval blue lens sunglasses with tortoise shields on each end. Prescription worthy frames made in Hong Kong in the 1980's. Fairly wide frame at 5 1/2". 

In excellent condition.  Lenses are rimmed in dark warm tortoise with tortoise shields and metal parts are matte black up to the hinges.  The stems are dark tortoise. Soo very cool.  Plastic lenses are dark blue tint, upper left corner of left lens signed 'RALPH'. 

Lenses do have some light surface scratches that do not interfere with vision.  Hinges are perfect. Self adjusting nosepads are original.  These are preowned vintage 80's sunglasses.  Only one pair available here at Retro Focus Eyewear.

  • Note: We work side by side with an online lab called ReplaceALens.com that charges wholesale prices for lenses that we recommend to all our eyewear buyers. Their prices are 2/3rds less than your local neighborhood optical shops. Visit their website. They never turn down any of our optical frames. Our frames are guaranteed with a free replacement or refund in case the lab damages them while they install your lenses. No other optician would give you such a promise. Only we do.
