Founder: John Bausch and Henry Lomb

Country: United States of America

History of Ray-Ban

Ray-Ban was created by the eye health product company Bausch + Lomb and US Army Air Corps Colonel John Macready in 1936. MacCready was concerned about the intense blue and white hues in the sky that would distract pilots. Original pilot goggles had a tendency to fog up and reduce vision at high altitudes. Ray-Ban was coined from the glasses’ ability to limit the ingress of ultra-violet and infra-red rays. This is what led to the birth of the iconic Aviator style in 1939. Several decades later, Bausch & Lomb with Ray-Ban was acquired by eyewear conglomerate Luxottica Group.

Ray-Ban has become an iconic eyewear brand known for its classic Americana and retro style. If you want some classic shades seen in movies like Blues Brothers and Top Gun, Ray-Ban is the glasses brand for you.
