About Ray Ban Sunglasses
In the 1930s, Ray-Ban found its footing through the military world. The mid-1930s were characterised by the rapid development in military technology, enabling aircrafts to reach higher altitudes and higher velocities. But with these high altitudes came the trouble of glaring sun rays, leading to distraction, nausea and headaches. In 1937, optical geniuses Bausch & Laumb were commissioned by the US Army Air Corps to design a pair of eyeglasses which would help ease pilots of these issues. Hence, a prototype was manufactured for military pilots with lightweight plastic frames and green plastic lenses that “banned” the harsh glares of the sun without compromising on the pilot’s visibility. After these were made available for the public in a metal frame, these sunglasses were christened as “Ray-Ban Aviators” in 1938.
Ray-Ban went on to gain increased popularity through World War II, continuing to supply the US and Allied Military Forces with eyewear. They continued to innovate by releasing special features such as impact-resistant lenses, gradient mirrors for pilots to easily see their control panels through the lower portion of the lenses.
In 1952, Ray-Ban introduced what went on to be their most popular design of all time, the Wayfarer. This design featured thicker plastic frames with smaller lenses than the Aviator. As more and more celebrities started to wear them, their popularity blew up and everyone was wearing Ray-Ban Wayfarers- it truly became a household name.
Ray-Ban cemented its name in pop culture however didn’t stop there. It has always been at the forefront of innovation, with functional design such as mountaineering sunglasses with leather side-shields or lenses which change colours to adapt to varying light conditions.
What is the Ray Ban Asian fit difference?

Longer and more curved temples- this is designed to suit the above mentioned facial characteristics better,
Decreased front curvature- this makes the sunglasses fit the head better and more comfortably,
Longer & curved nose pads- to fit the nose snugly and have your sunnies sit higher on the face instead of resting on the cheeks
Ray Ban Asian fit or low bridge fitting sunglasses also have adjustable nose pads for you to be able to make your frame fit perfectly.
