Ray Ban Sunglasses And Eyeglasses
Ray Ban sunglasses and eyeglasses started out in the 1930’s for Air Force pilots experiencing glare from the sun at the high altitudes. The glare was giving them headaches and altitude sickness. This was the introduction to a new type of sunglass lens. This new sunglass lens was green and removed the excessive glare without affecting your vision. This is how ray ban sunglasses and eyeglasses were created.
They were branded as ray ban aviator sunglasses. Hollywood in the 1950’s adored the ray ban sunglasses. The iconic ray ban wayfarer was launched. James Dean wore the wayfarer in 1955 “Rebel without a Cause.” Later on Audrey Hepburn wore the wayfarer in “Breakfast at Tiffanys.”
Ray Ban sunglasses and eyeglasses continued to innovate. Creating the Ray Ban signet. This eyeglass frame featured horizontal bands at the nose piece, front and sides. The collection continued to expand and by 1969 they had fifty styles. Hollywood stars continued to wear them as the eyeglass collection grew. Modern expansion of the Ray Ban sunglasses and eyeglasses continued in 2003. At this time Ray Ban optical frames were created. This included optical eyeglasses for men, women and children.
