The Aviator glasses, also known as pilot glasses, are an instantly recognisable design: thin metal frame and double bridge, combined with a teardrop-shaped, oversized lens which covers the eyes. These distinctive features create one of the most stylish staple eyewear with a history known worldwide. First created in the 1930s by Bausch & Lomb (now known as ‘Ray-Ban’) with purely a practical purpose for pilots during the wartime. The aviator is now one of Ray-Ban's most successful silhouettes and has been reworked through the years by other designer brands as well as Ray-Ban themselves. Shop fashion favourites Fendi, Dior, Tiffany or Versace for their fashionable twist on this staple. Or if you’re after a sophisticated classic, take a look at Tom Ford, Ray-Ban. If you prefer sports-focused Aviator frames, then we recommend Persol. Don’t forget to add your prescription lenses to your designer aviator glasses. We stock the most advanced range of optical lenses from top brands Nikon, Essilor, Ray-Ban, Maui Jim and Oakley. Our in house optical team has also put together our own Fashion Eyewear optical package, ranging from bronze to premium to help you choose a lens package that fits your lifestyle and optical needs.
