  9. Aviators • The aviator sunglasses were made for pilots initially. The First World War was the first major military conflict to see the utilization of aircraft in both reconnaissance and attack missions. As United States aircraft took to the sky, pilots were naturally afflicted by the intense sun at higher altitudes. Combat pilots would often land with exhausted and strained eyes after flights with no eye protection. To remediate this issue, The Army Air Corp contracted a project to optics manufacturer Bausch & Lomb with the aim to have sun blocking glasses for all of their pilots. • Launched in 1936, the aviator sunglasses produced by Bausch & Lomb were trademarked as “Ray Bans”.

  10. Fit-Over • Fit-overs sunglasses are the best solution for people with prescription sunglasses as they can be worn over the normal sunglasses. • Fit-overs are vastly used because they are cost effective, as polarized sunglasses with prescription lenses are expensive. • Photochromic also cannot provide that level of protection because they are not polarized, nor do they work well while driving. • Fit over are polarized, cheap and also provide side protection

  11. Driving • Driving Sunglasses prevent from extreme brightness and distracting reflections which can impair visibility when driving. • Polarised or mirrored lenses offer the best protection against the bright sun (and harmful ultraviolet rays). • The right model can also protect from dust and even strong winds. • A wind barrier will also reduce the rate of evaporation of moisture from your eyes. • So in racing, rallying and off-roading, these driving and motorcycle sunglasses are essential.
