American Optical Sunglasses:
The AO company began in 1826. William Beecher came to Rhode Island for an apprenticeship. He learned the jeweler’s trade. In the years of this trade, he encountered with a pair of imported crude spectacles. Deciding to do better, he founded American Optical and 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. The Flight Goggle 58, known as the Original Pilot Sunglasses, were also produced for the US military. It provided pilots with protection, optical performance and comfort. They were the first pair of sunglasses to be on a mission to the moon. Also featured in the Smithsonian Air & Space Museum in Washington DC.
