Ray-Ban Glasses at Della Optique
Now here is a brand of sunglasses and eyeglasses founded in 1937 by the American company Bausch & Lomb. The brand has become perhaps best known for their Wayfarer and Aviator lines of sunglasses.
Bausch & Lomb sold the brand to the Italian eyewear conglomerate Luxottica Group. Ray-Ban's most popular sunglasses are the Wayfarer, and Aviator models. During the 1950s, Ray-Ban released the Caravans, which had a squarer frame. In 1965, the Olympian I and II were introduced; they became popular when Peter Fonda wore them in the 1969 film Easy Rider. The company has also produced special edition lines, such as The General in 1987, bearing similarity to the original aviators worn by General Douglas MacArthur during the Second World War.
As eye doctor to many of Vancouver's residents, particularly in the Kitsilano neighbourhood, Dr. Della Chow has chosen this frame for its versatility in fitting her clients with prescription sunglasses, Aviators and Wayfarers. Ray-Ban also makes great men's reading glasses.
