When you think about the sunglass industry, I bet a few top brand names pop into your head. You may also believe that these brands are distinctly different, whether that be their price point or types of designs offered, among other things. However, what if I told you that most of the top sunglass brands are no different at all?
That’s right! Although you may think you are paying for a one-of-a-kind pair of sunglasses, that could not be further from the truth which lies within the dark corners of this industry. Today we will shine a light on how Caribbean Sun is more than just another sunglass company. Our products offer an experience like no other and allow you to see the world in a whole new light, so if you are wondering who makes Caribbean Sun sunglasses read on to learn more!
The Secret Behind the Sunglass Industry
Now, let’s get into the fact that around 70% of the entire eyewear industry is controlled by one company. This one company controls some of the most well-known brands in the market, but they also own many of the factories that produce these coveted sunglasses. For many unsuspecting customers, this leaves you purchasing products that may appear different but are very similar.
This issue comes down to the quality of the materials used to create a pair of sunglasses. Because of this legal monopoly, customers have no idea that the same material used to create a pair of Oakley’s is similar to the material used to create a pair of Prada sunglasses. It’s a shocking and unfortunate reality that many customers are unaware of when purchasing from sunglass retailers such as Sunglass Hut and Lens Crafters.
The Start of Caribbean Sun
In 2004 Matthew Banker, owner and founder of Caribbean Sun worked as senior vice president of product development for a large sunglass company. Although he thrived in his position, he knew that his customers deserved better. Caribbean Sun was founded with years of experience behind him and a goal to make high-quality sunglasses at a fraction of the cost.
The Caribbean Sun Promise
At Caribbean Sun, our commitment is to our customers. We uphold our promise to create premium, high-quality products without the hefty price tag.

You’ll receive personalized attention from us every step of the way—from ordering through delivery and beyond—so that you feel confident knowing that we have your back if anything goes wrong.
The Caribbean Sun Experience
Many people believe that sunglass lenses are either made from plastic or glass. However, various other materials can be used to create lenses. Around 95% of sunglasses are made with plastic lenses to help minimize the out-of-pocket cost for the top brands to keep their healthy profit margins.
However, when you get into the brands that sell glass lenses, especially polarized ones, you compromise heavily on price. Unfortunately, a pair of quality polarized sunglasses costs almost as much as a car payment. Fortunately, Caribbean Sun is one of the only brands that offer our customers high-quality polarized glass lenses starting at less than $100!
Caribbean Sun is more than just a company; it’s an experience. The difference is clear from the moment you put on your brand-new pair of sunglasses, and we aren’t just talking about the lenses, from the look and durable feel of the frame to the sleek classic design.
