The company Bausch & Lomb created Ray-Ban originally for the US Army Air Corp. as sunglasses to protect aviators from the damaging rays of the sun. The 'Aviator' soon became an iconic classic with plenty of fashion re-emergences since its beginning. From Gen. Douglas MacArthur to Tom Cruise in 'Top Gun', aviators have been embraced by all. Of course the iconic black plastic Ray-Ban launched in 1952 as the Wayfarer and has seen equal success. Ray-Ban has been linked to Hollywood for decades due to its product placement contracts, but the general public has embraced the eyewear for its stylish appeal and durable nature.
