When it comes to sunglasses, we barely find more popular model than Aviator. The name of this model is historically precise. Roughly one hundred years ago the new type of anti-glare goggles was requested by U.S. Army Air Corps which had to be specially adapted for high-altitude flying. So glasses of aviator-style having metal framing and large teardrop-shaped lenses have been designed by famous optical products' manufacturer Bausch & Lomb. They had the anti-glare coating which eliminated reflections from the surface of lenses. First Aviators were fitted with green tinted lenses - at that time they were considered to be the best for eyes protection not having the influence on color perception.
A few years later the company called the brand as Ray-Ban and Aviator sunglasses which were created for life above clouds, came down to earth and started selling out to the public. This pilot accessory set the tone for decades in eyewear fashionable industry, being a style symbol of coolness, chic and activity.
In today's life Aviators had connection to casual and sports styles and is a staple in many eyewear collections. These eyeglasses are unisex and look great both on men and women being an indispensable accessory for outdoor activity, including traveling, driving, fishing and piloting, of course.
Aviator is also a great option for prescription eyeglasses, which can create a sophisticated bold fashion-forward style to the wearer of this iconic and timeless accessory.
