It’s strange to think that a product that is 77 years old is still incredibly popular today
Ray-Ban Aviators were produced in 1937 to help US Air Force Pilots combat the glare caused by the sun flying at high altitude. The iconic green lens removed the glare without obscuring vision and a legend was born.
From a military application the name became one of the most iconic brands on the planet – Why ?
Fantastic Product – famous designs – quality construction – 12 lens options – all providing full UV protection
Great Marketing Campaigns – and probably more importantly being seen on the faces of the Rich and Famous – especially in the movies.
Ray Ban have been worn by the glitterati since the 1950’s from Marylin Monroe and JFK through to Emma Watson and David Beckham with Bob Dylan – Andy Warhol, Audrey Hepburn Tom Cruise and the Blues Brothers in between.
Their popularity has changed over the years but currently they seem to be THE brand for the Under 30’s both in Sunglasses and Ophthalmic frames.
Come in and see the range that we have in stock and you too may join the glitterati – we cant promise paparazzi outside the practice but you never know!
(Of course other sunglasses brands are available – lots of them can be seen at eyelines)
