Did you know
Bausch & Lomb is the original manufacturer of Ray-Ban Aviator sunglasses. The company developed them in 1937 to provide pilots with better vision, as they reduced lens fogging and provided high levels of sun protection. Many pilots went on to wear the glasses during WWII.
Who are Bausch & Lomb? A history
1853 - Bausch & Lomb is founded by optician John Jacob Bausch and his business partner Henry Lomb in New York and started out by making monocles for gentlemen.
1853-1900 - The company innovates a new design of glasses frame made from rubber, in response to the soaring price of horn (hence horn-rimmed glasses ) (traditionally used to make glasses frames).
1936 - Bausch & Lomb designs the Ray-Ban Aviator for WWII pilots. These super reflective sunglasses replaced flight goggles and provided better protection from the sun, reducing glare.
1971 - The company releases SofLens contact lenses, the first soft contact lenses available to the public. These revolutionary lenses provided higher comfort levels and water content than standard hard lenses.
2002 - PureVision is created, a monthly contact lens with AerGel technology for extra comfort.
2008 - ReNu MPS multipurpose contact lens solution is created, designed especially for silicone hydrogel contact lenses.
2012 - Bausch & Lomb releases Biotrue ONEday contact lenses, made from a super comfortable material called HyperGel.
