BIO: Considered by many as the sunglass king of the Internet, Rays Lite actually began his sunglass career in retail at Sunglass Hut in 2001. Rays spent many years learning the designer eyewear business by selling shades, fixing & fitting frames, managing & visually merchandising stores as well as training districts on product knowledge & operations.
By 2005 Rays was one of the best in the business and caught the attention of the newly growing Solstice Sunglass Boutique. Rays took an opportunity with Solstice & ran several store locations from 05-06. Not feeling like Solstice was truly appreciating his talents, or had any clear direction as a company, Rays returned to his true home with Sunglass Hut in 06.
By this time Rays had began the blueprint of a website that would help answer the question which he realized was most important to customers; “What Were They Wearing?” Not having ever seen a site like it before,
Rays realized it must be created to help sunglass enthusiasts around the world and in Nov of 2007 Celebrity Sunglasses Finder.com was born.
Still working with SGH, Rays was soon given an ultimatum by SGH corporate offices which deemed CSF as a conflict of interest. The decision to proceed with growing CSF was made with no hesitation when he was told “either shut it down or be forced to resign from SGH permanently”.
Since 2007 Rays Lite & CSF have answered tens of thousands of emails & requests, received visits from millions of viewers in over 200 countries, worked with many of the industry’s leading designers and stayed true to the vision of answering that question which we’ve all wondered at one time or another… What Were They Wearing?

BIO: Caity Vision and sunglasses began their love affair loooong ago and have been inseparable ever since.
Her collection started with a few from Prada, Chloe and Dior and shortly after that she discovered vintage. This was a game changer for her and her collection grew and grew! She spent day and night hunting down the perfect pairs for her, often getting advice from Rays Lite via CSF, her collection getting more bad-ass all the time.
Because of her style and knowledge about all things sunnies, all the major sunglasses headhunters tried to claim her ….. but only Rays Lite succeeded. Along with Mini, Johnny Specs and of course Rays Lite, you can bet you’ll never get better information on sunglasses anywhere else on the net!
Owns Over 55 Pairs
Johnny Specs was raised by a pack of wolves in the jungles of New York. The wolves couldn’t fashion many clothes for Johnny, but they managed to find a lost (but incredibly trendy) pair of sunglasses for him.
Johnny wore the shades all the time – they were like his security blanket. When the time came (and child services had to step in), Johnny left the pack with only his incredibly fashionable sunglasses and fond memories of hunting for food and grooming sans showers.
Adjusting to life in society, Johnny made huge strides … one day he realized that sunglasses came in all shapes, colors and sizes – HIS WEREN’T THE ONLY ONES! Wanting only to expand his comfort and memories from the security blanket, Johnny went on a quest to learn about and acquire as many shades as he could.
Rays Lite picked up on Johnny’s thirst for knowledge and made him an offer he couldn’t refuse.
I’m gonna try to share what I know, along with Mini and Caity Vision (they weren’t physically part of the wolf pack, but they were there in spirit). What’s up with wolves and sunglasses?
Owns 75 Pairs
Mini is an eyewear enthusiast from Canada with something like 75 pairs of sunglasses. Why so many, you might ask? Because most people are hard to look at in good lighting.
