Style, tradition and freedom of expression are the key values underpinning the philosophy of Ray-Ban, for generations the undisputed world leader in sun and prescription eyewear. In 1929 The United States Air Force issued a commission for sunglasses that would perform under the extreme conditions faced by pilots. The revolutionary, winning design, was a gold Aviator with G15 lenses. The Ray-Ban brand name was patented in 1937 and this is considered the birth of the brand. The Aviator would be followed with more iconic models, including the launch of the Wayfarer in 1952 and the Clubmaster in 1986. The Aviator remains the No.1 bestselling sunglass today. Worn by movie stars, rock icons and trendsetters from all over the world. Ray-Ban’s values are:
- Quality and Function
- History and Heritage
- Iconoclastic Cool
Modern celebrity wearers include: Jennifer Aniston, Rita Ora, Catherine Duchess of Cambridge and Sam Smith.
Our Leightons Opticians branches stock the latest prescription Ray-Ban glasses that incorporate the style and design that have made the brand what it is today. Famous for their Ray-Ban sunglasses, with the original Aviator model created for American Air Force pilots, Ray-Ban continues to be one of the leading eyewear brands.
Unaffected by the conceptual transience of fashion, Ray-Ban immediately made a name for itself thanks to the absolute quality and authenticity of its eyewear, now more "modern" than ever and worn by countless movie celebrities and trendsetters all over the world.
