It all began when US Army began receiving complaints from the pilots about sun glares, altitude sickness and headaches.

The US Army then asked Bausch and Lomb to create aviation sunglasses that would lessen nausea and headaches experienced by the pilots.

It was found out that such a headache was caused by the clear blue and white hues of the sky along with eye penetrating sun rays.

The prototype, made in 1936, was known as ‘Anti-Glare’ and had plastic frames and green glasses to cut out the glare. The sun glasses were remodelled with metallic frame and rebranded as Ray Ban aviators.

The pilots wear it to protect their eyes from harmful UV rays and glares.

These glasses not only protect the eyes from UV rays and sun glares, these can also make a woman drool. Remember Tom Cruise from Top Gun?
