The success of the Ray-Ban brand began in the 1920s. Aircraft could fly higher and higher and there was an increase in complaints from pilots who were blinded by the sun's glare. An American Lieutenant General, John MacCready, commissioned Bausch & Lomb, a manufacturer of medical products, to develop glare-reducing goggles for pilots. The first prototype sunglasses didn't come on to the market until 1936 and in 1937, Bausch & Lomb finally logged a patent for the Ray-Ban Aviator. Incidentally, Ray-Ban translated as radiation protection. More styles were developed for the commercial market and gradually, sunglasses became a popular accessory. No longer only for pilots - policemen, fishermen, hunters, and recreational athletes were all discovering the practical benefits of sunglasses for themselves.
In the 1950s, Ray-Ban developed the ever-popular Wayfarer model and its clean lines soon made it popular with celebrities, artists, and musicians. Thanks to Hollywood, the Ray-Ban trend made its way into domestic living rooms and styles like the Wayfarer and Aviator became the must-have accessory for fashion conscious men and women. The trend continued to grow in the 1960s as more people had access to televisions and fashion began to play an increasingly important role in everyday life. By 1969, Bausch & Lomb was the world market leader and its collection had been massively extended.
The brand reached even giddier heights during the 1970s. It focussed as much on athletes as the fashion world and design and functionality now play an equal role. In 1974 the first photochromic lenses that darken automatically when exposed to sunlight were used. This new feature was of particular interest to athletes who benefitted from the best vision in changing light conditions.
In the 1980s, Ray-Ban is still on course for success. The sunglasses were seen in popular movies like Blues Brothers and Top Gun and in television series like Miami Vice. Stars like Michael Jackson were wearing Ray-Ban - helping the brand achieve even greater popularity. Models such as the Clubmaster use elements that channel the 1950s to offer a distinctive look.
In 1999, Bausch & Lomb sold its Ray-Ban subsidiary to the Luxottica Group. This leads the brand in a new direction and it successfully extends its range of eyeglasses to include Junior glasses. Timeless classics such as the Wayfarer, Aviator, and Clubmaster are also experiencing a comeback - a combination of the latest technology, the best materials, and retro-design features make them popular with customers.
