Sunglass Hut was founded in 1971 by optometrist Sanford Ziff, who first opened a freestanding kiosk in a Miami, Florida, mall, and called it the "Sunglass Hut.” The success of this first kiosk encouraged Ziff and his family members to open other Sunglass Hut locations in the area.

After opening his 100th store in 1986, Ziff sold 75% of the company to finance its expansion. Following the partial acquisition of Sunglass Hut by an investment firm, the business was incorporated under the name Sunglass Hut International, Inc. For two years, the firm and the Ziff family worked together to increase the number of Sunglass Hut stores in the marketplace, as well as upgrade existing units and add new products to the company line. In 2001, the company was sold to Luxottica, the world's largest eyewear company.

Brands currently available in store and on the site include names like Tiffany & Co., Ray-Ban, Oakley, Maui Jim, Arnette, Ralph Lauren, Gucci, Bvlgari, Dolce & Gabbana, Chanel, Bvlgari, Mosley Tribes, Revo, Burberry, Fendi, Ed Hardy and Prada.
