Maui Jim started out selling sunwear to tourists in Lahaina, Hawaii in 1980. The brand began distributing products in the mainland United States in 1988. In 1999 Maui Jim was featured in a Forbes Magazine piece entitled “100 Things Worth Every Penny.” Since then, the brand has maintained its reputation for value and quality.
Rugged Maui Jim Rx sunglasses feature light-weight frame materials, such as titanium, nylon, and acetate, combined with Maui Jim's patented PolarizedPlus2® lenses to produce a durable prescription sunglasses line cool enough for daily wear. Maui Jim is dedicated to making technological advancements that bring outstanding visual acuity in high glare as well as low light, with distortion-free lenses, UV protection, and outstanding color clarity and richness.
Maui Jims come in a wide variety of high-glare or low-light lens colors. There are neutral grey lenses for bright direct sunlight, providing rich color and contrast. Bronze and rose tints are perfect for full sun to overcast conditions. Bronze works particularly well if you like a warm, subtle tint. Rose is best for fast-moving sports.
Trademarked Maui HT™ stands for High Transmission. These lenses are for times when most lenses would be too dark, such as early morning, late afternoon, and foggy days. Maui Jim prescription sunglasses for men and women range from classic metal-rimmed aviators to sporty nylon wraparounds to sophisticated and incredibly lightweight titanium-limbed rimless styles. Most Maui Jim frames wrap around partially or fully for peripheral vision protection, which is important to expand the field of vision and protect eyes from sand and dirt.
Maui Jim prescription sunglasses are available with bi-focal, progressive or single vision lenses to suit your particular vision correction needs. In fact, your lenses will be carefully checked against your prescription by on-staff certified opticians before your new glasses are delivered to you.
All Maui Jim prescription sunglasses are made with polarized lenses, and some also come in gradient color options.
- Polarized lenses have a filter within the lens that blocks the wavelengths of light that cause glare. They can greatly enhance contrast and allow for greater depth of vision, especially in water. They are ideal for any situation where glare reduction is necessary, like driving or playing sports.
- Gradient tints are tints that start off at a darker color at the top of a lens and then gradually lighten towards the bottom of the lenses. These tints are great for fashion and for reading outside on sunny days. Gradient coatings work by allowing an appropriate amount of light to filter through in certain areas and less in places where protection is most necessary.
