Ray-Bans were first created in 1936 but the idea of Ray Bans began some years earlier when Lieutenant John A. Macready returned from a balloon flying adventure and complained that the sun had permanently damaged his eyes.

Pilots in the United States Army Air Corps immediately adopted the sunglasses. The army had intentions to have sunglasses that would protect the soldiers from the rays of the sun but yet still have an elegant look.

The two main styles are the Aviator and Wayfarer.

The Ray-Ban Tech Collection comes in a number of different colors and styles, providing a range of fashion as deep as their functions- six styles with countless combinations of different temples, color of temples and lenses along with the carbon fibre black original and aluminum grey styles. The lenses are available in two different versions, polarized and non-polarized, and available in three different colors – green, brown and mirror grey. Non-polarized versions are also available, in plastic and crystal, equipped with Ray-Ban’s legendary G-15®, B-15® and mirror lenses.
