The best things in life are the originals. And there's nothing more original than AO Eyewear. Even before the cars were browsing our streets and we could call each other from the comfort of our home, William Beecher decided to change the way we look at the world.
AO Eyewear was founded in America in 1833, when Beecher apprenticed as a jeweller, but soon after decided to make the first steel eyeglasses to make life easier for everyone. The true act of altruism led to what we nowadays know as one of the best eyewear companies in the world.
American Optical company history started with the invention and continued with production of eyewear available for everyone. American Optical pilots became so popular, that the AO Eyewear pilot sunglasses were worn by presidents, NASA space crew and military pilots.
There might be many arguments over what are the original aviator sunglasses, but with clean conscience we can say that the AO Eyewear original pilot sunglasses with bayonet template is an ultimate classic and the very best original.
Over the years, AO Eyewear moved over to production of different optical instruments. Except sunglasses and eyeglasses, you can now come across American Optical Company microscope, safety glasses and other additional optical material, such as American Optical replacement lenses.
Thanks to the numerous AO Eyewear dealers, you don't have to wonder where to buy AO Sunglasses anymore. AO Eyewear is now available worldwide, in the UK, Australia and thanks to HANSEN even in Denmark. Just head to our sunglasses collection at our online store and have a look at the best designs we have chosen for you.
Despite being so popular, AO Sunglasses price has been kept to make the AO Eyewear affordable for everyone and prevent people from getting fake American Optical sunglasses with no durability and knock-off design.
