Ray-Ban sunglasses: The history
Ray-Ban sunglasses originated from the American company Bausch & Lomb, founded in 1937. Ray-Ban is best known for Wayfarer and Aviator lines of sunglasses.
In the 1930’s American test pilots were complaining about the sunlight constantly damaging their eyes. The model Aviator was created and was successful for its look and for being very useful – their green lenses filtered ultraviolet and infrared rays.
Ray-Ban is a true worldwide brand. Ray-Ban eyewear is preferred by legendary actors, loved by people of all ages, and imitated by everyone. With 70 years of tradition, and a reputation for quality, Ray-Bay looks to its past to envision its future.
