Ever since Bausch & Lomb USA sold Ray-Ban to Luxottica Italy, owners of optical brands Bolle, Revo, Killer Loop etc., the overall quality totally sucks! I have a pair of Ray-Ban Aviators manufactured by Bausch & Lomb that consists of a sturdier, thicker frame. What really ticks me off is the lens quality! Ray-Ban sunglasses WERE known for their unique heavy, but not too heavy, tempered glass lenses. They are still tempered glass, but much lighter and cheaper quality. When I tried Luxottica's Ray-Ban Aviators on, I almost felt like I was wearing cheap sunglasses with plastic lenses. I would rather the nose bridge dig into my sinuses due to heavyweight lenses than wear cheaply made drug store quality sunglasses for $100!!! It is quite apparent that they are trying to starve the traditional Ray-Ban market and introduce new CRAP! I'm not buying it. To Hell with Luxottica! They can stick their inferior sunglasses where the sun don't shine!
