Polarised Lenses

Under harsh and bright conditions, glare can often become a problem, preventing you from fully enjoying the natural beauty and colour of the world around you. Maui Jim sunglasses use a unique combination of six different technologies that make up their patented PolarizedPlus2 ® technology. Which cuts glare and creates an immediately noticeable difference.

How do they work?

A premium polarising film is infused into the lens itself, working like a Venetian blind. The polarising technology breaks up light waves, allowing for 99.9% elimination of reflected glare, so the world’s colours can come through.

Colour. Clarity. Detail.

From day one, part of the Maui Jim’s mission was to maintain the island’s vivid colours. Now a global company, they ensure that the rich hues of every day are preserved, no matter where you are in the world.

Using colour-enhancing lenses Maui Jim sunglasses ensure that colour, clarity and detail is maintained. Instead of dimming the light, they use natural light to filter out interference, keeping colours bright and vivid.
