About Vintage Ray Ban Aviators

It is no coincidence that flyboys — and girls — get all the intention; they look super cool in their vintage Ray-Ban aviator shades. Bausch & Lomb, developed these classic sunglasses in 1936 to protect pilots' eyes. The lenses cover two to three times the area of the eyeball and are slightly convex to block out as much sunlight as possible. The teardrop shape allows fighter pilots to look down at their instrument panels without glare. The frames are thin so they do not interfere with peripheral vision. Aviators never go out of style, but there have been design changes to the original teardrop design, which tends to lengthen a long face. The navigator shades are slightly square to provide width to a narrow temple. Lens color is more than just a fashion statement, as each color blocks out a different degree of light. Ray-Ban mirror aviators block out the most light and absorb glare. Ray-Ban polarized aviator glasses reduce reflections and enhance contrast. They come in several colors, including gray, dark green, and even bright green for an eye-catching look. Browse the large selection of vintage Ray-Ban aviator sunglasses on eBay. The helpful sellers provide the specifications that help you chose the sunglasses you need with the right protective properties.
