About American Optical Eyewear
American Optical Eyewear earned its reputation for outstanding optics as a top supplier to the U.S. Military. In 1958, the company developed Flight Goggle 58, now known as the Original Pilot Sunglass®, to provide military pilots with maximum protection, optical performance, and comfort. Original Pilot Sunglasses have protected thousands of military pilots from blinding glare. They've even been worn by the Eagle flight crew in the first moon landing.
Today, American Optical Eyewear puts the features of the Original Pilot Sunglass in a wide range of sports and fashion eyewear.
The Flight Gear®, Contemporaries and Visionaries lines offer the ultimate in protection, comfort and style, with glass and polycarbonate lenses in frame styles to fit virtually any sunwear need.
And all American Optical Eyewear products are still manufactured in Southbridge, Massachusetts, USA, as they have been for more than 130 years.
If you want fashion and comfort, plus the optical performance demanded by U.S. military pilots, look to American Optical Eyewear.
