Dr. John Henahan and the staff of Spectrum Eyecare in Peachtree City are proud to announce that they have added the famed RayBan® line of sunglasses and frames to their eclectic mix of products. “At Spectrum Eyecare we continually strive to provide our patients with the most exciting and highest quality ophthalmic products,” reports Dr. Henahan.
RayBan® is a classic product line first launched in 1937 that includes the celebrated Aviator sunglasses. They have been a top choice for sunglasses since being adopted by pilots during World War II. The Ray-Ban Aviator became well-known when photographers snapped several pictures of General Douglas MacArthur wearing them.
Over the years, other classics have included the Wayfarer , invented in 1952. In the early days they were worn by artists, presidents (including JFK) and Hollywood stars. Tom Cruise‘s wearing of Wayfarers in the 1983 movie Risky Business marked the beginning of a Wayfarers phenomenon, which has continued until this day.
In recent years, RayBan has produced an increasingly popular line of frames for regular (non-sunglasses) lenses. The quality, Italian made frames include handmade plastics, metals and titanium options.
“We are proud of the heritage of RayBan and how they complement our other frame lines from Europe”, says Dr. Henahan. “Additionally, the option of polarized or non-polarized lenses is highly beneficial for our large airline pilot population. Polarized lenses offer the most glare reduction but are not a good option for pilots due to the effect they can have seeing through the cockpit glass and viewing certain instruments in the cockpit.”
In the coming weeks, Dr. Henahan will be publishing a story on what to look for when shopping for sunglasses this summer, including lens options, how polarization works and the advantages and disadvantages of different frame and lens materials.
