Ray-Bans were created in 1937.Some years earlier, Lieutenant John MacCready returned from a balloonflying adventure and complained that the sun had permanently damaged his eyes.He contacted Bausch & Lomb asking them to create sunglasses that wouldprovide protection and also look elegant. On May 7, 1937, Bausch & Lombtook out the patent. The prototype, known as Anti-Glare, had an extremely lightframe weighing 150 grams. They were made of gold-plated metal with green lensesmade of mineral glass to filter out infrared and ultraviolet rays. Pilots inthe United States Army Air Corps immediately adopted the sunglasses. TheRay-Ban Aviator became a well-known style of sunglasses when General DouglasMacArthur landed on the beach in the Philippines in World War II, andphotographers snapped several pictures of him wearing them.
