Ray-Ban Wayfarer RB-3 Light Tortoise Shell Sunglasses
Vintage Ray-Ban Wayfarer 5022 sunglasses feature a beautiful light tortoise shell frame in the iconic Wayfarer style coupled with very hard to find Bausch & Lomb RB-3 light green mineral glass lenses. This is a rare combination of frame color and lens, and you just don't see too many vintage Ray-Ban Wayfarers that were still offered with the early Bausch & Lomb RB-3 lens. The B&L Ray-Ban RB-3 lens was developed for the US military and features "absorption balanced with the eye's sensitivity to colors for peak acuity." The unisex Ray-Ban Wayfarer frame measures approximately 5.675" temple to temple, and the lenses measure approximately 1.875" x 1.5" at the widest points with both lenses laser etched BL near the hinges. You'll find the Ray-Ban logo in raised metal relief on the exterior of both ear stems, and the inside of one stem is marked B&L Ray-Ban USA while the inside of the other stem is marked Wayfarer and the rear of the frame above the right lens is impressed B&L 5022.
