Aviator sunglasses originated in the 30s, when they were developed to protect pilots’ vision in open-air cockpits. After World War II, the style became incredibly popular thanks to iconic figures like Gen. Douglas MacArthur and Elvis wearing Ray-Ban® aviator sunglasses.
In the 75 years since their introduction, aviators have remained the most popular sunglasses shape of all time, especially among celebrities. Whether they’re regular aviators or mirrored aviator sunglasses, these sunnies are eternally cool.
Because all the sunglasses we offer at Clearly have polarized lenses, you can enjoy the extra protection of polarized aviator sunglasses. Many of them are also prescription-ready so you don’t have to sacrifice clear vision for style or sun protection. Plus, all our prescription aviator sunglasses can take progressive lenses as well, so everyone can look stylish in aviators.
