Costa eyewear is made for your active lifestyle, bringing a healthy dose of fashion to the beach or trailhead. Polarized sunglasses, eyeglasses, and C-Mates bifocal readers by Costa will help you navigate in any direction your adventure leads.
The sports sunglasses in the Costa eyewear collection are made for active lifestyles, but you’ll also find plenty of distinctive options for any scenario. Costa leads the way with technologically advanced eyewear materials like bio-based resin and recycled fishing nets that replace traditional plastics and co-injected frames (available in Costa Sunglasses), where nylon and Hydrolite™ are fused for strong, lightweight performance. This combination also promises a tighter grip to prevent slipping when exposed to sweat or water.
Costa—previously known as Costa del Mar—was founded in Florida, created by fishermen for fishermen in the late 1980s, by fishermen for fishermen, to design sunglasses that could keep up with their angling lifestyle. . The creators at Costa were frustrated because the sunglasses on the market at the time fit poorly and did not adequately filter glare from the water. They set out to create a new brand of glasses that would meet their specific needs and still look great. Since then, Costa has continued to create quality sunglasses and eyeglasses with innovative technologies. These performance sunglasses were "born on the water," and they’re made to last—each pair is a worthy investment.
Costa sunglasses boast unbeatable lens technology, advanced materials to withstand exposure to the elements, and ultra-comfortable designs made to conform to your features without pinching or rubbing. In their quest for the ultimate athletic sunglasses, Costa developed the 580G glass lenses for incredible clarity, scratch resistance, and minimal distortion. This rigorous attention to detail extends to the company’s prescription lenses and its Waypoint™ digital technology in prescription single-vision and progressive lenses, and its line of C-Mates bifocal sun eyewear allows you to enjoy reading glasses within your sunglasses.
Costa offers a range of available lens colors to tailor your views even further. Most anglers prefer blue and green lenses with a mirror finish for their ability to block harsh glare, intense light, and UV rays on the water, but grey lenses are ideal for everyday wear. Or, try versatile copper lenses suited to varying light conditions or cloudy days. No matter what conditions you fish, swim, or boat under, Costa prescription sunglasses offer optimal protection from the sun’s rays combined with crystal clear views.
Costa designs and assembles all of their sunglasses at their headquarters in Florida. They import components and parts from around the world to build the completed sunglasses.
