Ray-Ban Prescription Glasses
Founded in 1937 in America Ray-Ban created glasses in both Wayfarer and Aviator designs. In the 1920s Airplanes were designed to fly higher and further. US Army Air servicemen were complaining of sun glare giving them both headaches and altitude sickness. Medical Equipment Manufacturers Bausch & Lomb were approached to develop sunglasses to help prevent the pilots from suffering from headaches and nausea from the intense blue and white colour hues of the sky at these never before reached heights and distances. The result, a new introduction of sunglasses, Ray-Ban. However, the prototype was initiated in 1936, and accurately called ‘Anti-Glare’, but were of a repulsive plastic framed green lensed design, even though they achieved what they were set out to achieve in that they cut out the glare of the sun without obscuring pilot’s vision. In 1937 these glasses were remodelled into an appeasing metal frame and rebranded ‘Ray-Ban Aviator’.
Ray-Bans were soon a big hit in the fashion market, particularly for those participating in outdoor sports, such as hunting, shooting and fishing. Then, in the 1940s, gradient lenses were introduced which provided a mirror effect due to a special coating on the upper lens to promote enhanced protection. The lower lens was kept clear to provide pilots with a clear view of their instrumental panel.
In 1952, Ray-Ban introduced their Wayfarer style, which Hollywood popularised, such as the likes of James Dean who wore them in his hit film Rebel Without A Cause. Many celebrities can be seen wearing a pair of Ray-Bans in movies, including Bruce Willis in Moonlighting, Tom Cruise in Risky Business, and Quentin Tarantino in Reservoir Dogs.
