On a bright sunny day, before going out there is something we look for.
They are of course, sunglasses.
Sunglasses block out the harmful UV rays and protect our eyes; and they also act as a fashion item and make us all the more stylish.
They say that sunglasses date back to the Song Dynasty in China where judges would wear them to hide their expressions during an interrogation.
Crystal would be darkened with smoke to make black glasses.
And so it wasn’t used to better eyesight but simply to block bright light.

Sunglasses were further developed in the USA.
In 1930, the army air force asked Bausch + Lomb Company to make protective glasses for their pilots.
Bausch + Lomb Co. developed sunglasses to protect the eyes from the sun during flight and these are the sunglasses we know today.
The sunglasses this company developed were named “Ray-ban”, meaning to ban the sun’s rays.
