Ray Ban is perhaps one of the best known optical and sunglass brands. 

 

The history of the Ray-Ban aviator dates back to the 1920s, when new airplanes allowed people to fly higher and farther. Many US Army Air Service pilots were reporting that the glare from the sun was giving them headaches and altitude sickness.

 

In 1929 work comenced to create "anti-glare" lenses. Few years later plastic frames and green lenses that could cut out the glare without obscuring vision were born.The sunglasses were remodeled with a metal frame and rebranded as the 'Ray-Ban Aviator' in 1937.
