The first Aviator sunglasses were made by Ray-Ban for World War II pilots. They needed glasses to eliminate sunlight and glare, and provide the best possible vision amid smoke and flying debris. Ray-Ban designed the iconic tear-drop frames to mimic the shape of pilot goggles and cover a maximum amount of real estate around each eye. General Douglas MacArthur put Aviators Sunglasses on the map in 1944 when he landed on the beach in the Philippines wearing a pair of the tear-drop shades. Aviators made a resurgence in popularity when Tom Cruise and Val Kilmer sported them in the 1986 action flick Top Gun. Since then they have been a mainstay in celebrity style and fashion.
