American Optical Sunglasses:
The AO company began in 1826. William Beecher came to Rhode Island for an apprenticeship. This is where he learned the jeweler’s trade. In the years of this trade, he encountered with a pair of typically crude imported spectacles. He decided that he could do better. During WWII, AO led the industry with new optical products. They supplied the US Government with new products; gun sights, bomb sights, AR glass, aviation goggles, and instrument applications. It provided pilots with protection, optical performance and comfort. They were the first pair of sunglasses to be on a mission to the moon.
