Initially, pilots sported flight goggles. However, in the 1920s, the military asked manufacturers to come up with a more specialized anti-glare goggle that would better serve pilots at high altitudes. Bausch & Lomb came up with the winning design. The now-mainstay large teardrop creation featured a green tint that shielded the eyes from glare without interfering with color perception.
While polarized sunglasses are famous for eliminating glare, they aren't an ideal choice in the cockpit since they can distort the displays on the pilot's instruments. As a result, pilot's professional, recreational and military slid on a pair of aviator sunglasses before hitting the skies.
Eventually Bausch & Lomb renamed aviator sunglasses as Ray-Bans since they well, ban the rays. Today, quite a few sunglass manufacturers design aviator sunglasses. Whether you are a career pilot, learning to fly or just want to look like one, EyeSave has a wonderful assortment of aviator sunglasses to choose from. You'll love the selection and the prices.
