Do you think that the urge to look good by wearing sunglasses kicked in only in the 21st century? Guys, if you think that then this blog is the perfect thing. For you to unleash the fashion potentials of people during the pre-historic times.
The evolution of glasses is still going, however, their invention is a matter of 12th century. Amazing, isn’t it?
Glasses made of ivory with splits for the eyes to see were the first kind of glasses that were ever made. In China and Rome, such glasses were used to block out the sun’s rays to protect the eyes from any harmful radiations. These 12th-century glasses were made from smoked quartz and were very roughly shaped.
With time, the evolution of sunglasses came into the picture with slow improvements with each passing century. James Asycough was, however, the first to come up and experiment with the tints in glasses. This happened back in 1752; when means were too meager to come out with exceptional results.
The early 20th century is believed to be the time when sunglasses became more modern than ever. In 1929, America became the first country to start the inexpensive mass production of these glasses under the guidance of Sam Foster. Polarized sunglasses came into the picture in 1936. This was the time when experiments with the glass shape came up with glasses being made in all possible sizes and forms.
World War II is believed to be the time of another landmark in the journey of glasses with the invention of the very famous aviator glasses. Ray-Ban came out as a patent brand name for these aviators.
The evolution still goes on with recent developments like UV protection, Glare Protection, and numbered sunglasses. It’s almost unimaginable to think of a world without eye frames!
