Maui Jim Sunglasses: Premium Frames with Patented Maui Jim Lenses
Founded in 1986 in Maui, Maui Jim sunglasses were created to hold up to harsh lighting and to block glare coming off water.
Using a patented lens technology, these sunglasses provide optimal clarity and eye comfort in most any outdoor condition. Maui Jim frames are offered in both fashionable and sporty styles, including aviators, wayfarers, wraparound sun glasses and more.
Proprietary Lens Technology
Maui Jim sunglasses block 99 percent of glare and 100 percent of UV rays, a claim that is only made by the leader in sunglass lenses. The quality sun lenses are crafted in Italy and Japan and provide the most extreme color boosting technology available. The patented technology is exclusive to the brand, and because of its industry leading lenses, most people who own Maui Jim sunglasses own three to five pairs each.
Maui Jim was recently awarded the Seal of Recommendation from the American Skin Care Foundation for having the highest amount of UV protection on the market.
Maui Jim Lens Materials
Maui Jim sunglasses come in four materials. Glass lenses are best for thin, light and preferred for saltwater use. MauiPure™ is a lightest weight lens available. Maui Evolution® offers premium clarity and is lightweight. Polycarbonate lenses are the most impact-resistant.
All lenses meet ANSI and other safety standards, and each offers extreme clarity and color enhancement.
Maui Jim Lens Treatments
Maui Jim lenses are designed with every detail in mind. First, a Clearshell treatment is applied, which acts as a primer for other applications. An anti-reflective treatment blocks glare from the back of the lens. Lenses are water and oil repellent, thanks to an additional coating created for wearers spending time in the sun and water. Some lenses come with a bi-gradient mirror treatment, which reflects light from above and below – the lenses "squint" so wearers don’t have to.
Lens Colors for Maui Jim Sunglasses
When selecting frames, up to four lens colors are available: grey, rose, bronze and a special hue that allows the highest usable light transmission as well as enhanced color and crisp details.
Choose the lens color that suits your lifestyle, and select mirrored, gradient and/or polarized lens options.
