AO Eyewear has been in the optical business since 1833 and has been producing high quality, American made eyewear ever since. During WWI and WWII, AO Eyewear supplied our warfighters with not only sunglasses, but also quality aviation goggles, bombsights, gun sights, and prescription lenses. AO’s niche has been crystal clear optics that our military and our GA pilots demand. Their sunglasses are entirely designed with the pilot in mind, are engineered and built to meet Military specifications, and have been issued to millions of Marines, Sailors, Soldiers, and Airmen.

The Original Pilot sunglasses have been a favorite among military aviators for more than 50 years. With a strong and sturdy metal frame, you don’t have to worry about your sunglasses breaking. The bayonet-style temple ensures comfort and a perfect ear seal when wearing a headset or a helmet. The non-polarized lens is perfectly crisp and clear, sharpening even the smallest details a pilot must focus on.  It combines a timeless pilot look with modern optical technology, giving you the best of both worlds.

• Made in the USA
• Sturdy frame with brow bar
• Comfortable for long flights
• Does not break ear seal on a headset
• 100% UVA, 98% UVB protection
• Crystal Clear view
• Non-polarized lenses

Benefits of Different Colored Lenses
BROWN LENS:
The brown lens adds more contrast and visual depth. By reducing blue light, they help with eye fatigue and glare. They can help brighten vision on cloudy days. This lens is great for driving/flying.

GREY LENS:
The grey lens is known to cut out brightness but still retain the true colors around you.  Grey lenses are also great for reducing glare. This shade is the most common and is perfect for everyday wear.

Why we don't sell polarized sunglasses
Many sunglasses today are polarized, meaning they use an optical filter to reduce glare. While this is fine for fishing or driving, it's a bad idea for pilots. That's because many cockpit instruments and glass panels have polarized faces, and polarized sunglasses will render these unreadable. In addition, the iPad screen will be blacked out in portrait orientation when wearing polarized sunglasses. Sporty's sells a wide variety of high-quality sunglasses that do an excellent job of reducing glare--but without polarization.
