Oakley & Ray Ban is a brand of sunglasses and eyeglasses founded in 1937 by American company Bausch & Lomb. Lauded by jet setters and celebrities, Ray-Ban infuses high-tech performance and iconic style into trend-transcending designs, including their Wayfarer and Aviator styles. The prototype, created in 1936 and known as 'Anti-Glare', had plastic frames and green lenses that could cut out the glare without obscuring vision. The sunglasses were remodeled with a metal frame the following year and rebranded as the Ray-Ban Aviator. In 1952, Ray-Ban created another classic style, the Ray-Ban Wayfarer.
