Ray-Ban is arguably the most famous name in the world when it comes to eyewear. The brand's styles are unmistakable, and the company’s heritage is among the most influential. Known worldwide for creating some of the best eyeglasses on the market today, the brand is constantly evolving and adapting to the world around it, and its eyeglass frames exemplify this characteristic.
Best known for its iconic styles in designer shades, Ray Ban also offers prescription eyeglasses in the same highly distinctive and timeless RX frame styles, such as the consistently popular wayfarers, aviators, and Clubmaster frames the brand originally created—plus, of course, many other stylish and contemporary premium spectacles to suit any face shape or style preference.
Ray-Ban achieved its first major market innovation with the introduction of the sleek and distinctive aviators in the 1930s. These were specifically developed as light-weight "eye protection" to help military aviators pilot their aircraft safely and comfortably at higher altitudes under an unforgiving sun.
Once the "aviators" were made available to the general public, they became a favorite choice of for men. Throughout the 20th century, Ray Ban Aviators were worn by historic figures such as General Douglas MacArthur, popular musicians such as Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and Freddie Mercury, and film celebrities such as Tom Cruise, Val Kilmer, and Sylvester Stallone. The Aviator became a symbol of courage, grit, excitement, and victory.
Since then, over many decades of consistent quality and innovative style, the company has evolved into a premiere fashion brand that has helped to shape popular culture. Beyond a fashion trend, Ray Ban Glasses identify the wearer as tasteful, bold, and cool. From Hollywood to the Oval Office, generations of Americans have owned or wanted to own a pair of these frames. And now, nearly eight decades since the legendary aviators helped pilots soar higher into the heavens than ever before, RayBan continues to excel at quality, innovation and style.
