Ray-Ban Eyeglasses - Ray-Ban is an American icon. The sunglass brand was created in 1937 by Bausch & Lomb, after Army Lieutenant John Macready complained that his eyes had been damaged by the sun during a balloon test flight, and asked the company to create sunglasses that would protect his eyes while appearing sophisticated. The new sunglasses were named the Aviator, and made of gold-plated metal and green mineral glass lenses to filter out UV and infrared radiation. They were patented by Bausch & Lomb on May 7, 1937.
U.S. Army Air Corps pilots immediately took to the new sunglasses, and when General Douglas MacArthur was photographed wearing a pair on Normandy Beach near the end of WWII, Ray-Bans spread like wildfire outside the armed forces as well, even to Hollywood. In 1952 Ray-Ban's next style, the Ray-Ban Wayfarer, featured plastic frames and also was an instant hit. Wayfarers were sported by television stars, movie stars and rock musicians.
The Ray-Ban eyeglasses line is fairly new, having only been introduced in the last decade. Ray-Ban eyeglasses offer the same high quality standards of craftsmanship, materials, style and comfort that you expect from the brand. Much of the eyeglasses line features the same type of classic styling as the sunglasses, with names like Wayfarer and Ronsir, as well as frames that reflect the Aviator style, such as the Ray-Ban RX8403 and RX6049 frames.
