Aviator sunglasses were intentionally developed for pilots to protect them from the intense solar radiation when flying at great height. The tear drop shape covers the whole eye area and is tightly positioned on the face, to prevent direct sunlight from reaching the pupil. The 80's Aviators have become famous not only for their functional features, but also for their design and image. iPOP Eyewear stocks classic frames and Polarised lenses.
