In the late 1920’s to  early 1930’s American Optical had a hit on its hands when it moved the temple piece from the middle of the frame to the top. This allowed peripheral vision to the side at a time when car driving was becoming very popular. AO called these glasses Ful-VueAmerican Optical’s sales of frames doubled from 1934 to 1944.
This was mainly due to Ful-Vue frame sales.
When World War II came along pilots needed to use sunglasses which gave good vision and good protection from sun’s rays at high altitudes.
Ray-Ban was founded in 1937 by Bausch & Lomb (B&L) and obtained licensing from AO to be able to make aviator style sunglasses along with
 AO and Ful-Vue.
