Who are Maui Jim?

Maui Jim is the fastest-growing premium polarized sunglass manufacturer in the world. Maui Jim sunglasses are so effective at protecting the eyes and surrounding skin from harmful UV rays that they’re the only major sunglass manufacturer to have earned the Skin Cancer Foundation Seal of Recommendation. Starting in 1980 on Ka’anapali beach in Lahaina, Maui, the brand launched their mission to deliver lenses to combat the sun’s harmful UV rays and intense glare, while maintaining the island’s vivid colours.

Maui Jim Glasses

How do they protect us?

Maui Jim’s reputation based on the development of advanced technologies for double and single gradient lenses. Lenses are available in both prescription and non-prescription, and reduce 100 percent of harmful UVA and UVB rays as well as cutting glare from above, below and behind each lens by 99.9 percent. Only Maui Jim uses up to nine layers of protection built into each lens, including the company’s proprietary polarized film, PolarizedPlus2®, that produces true, vivid colours.


The Maui Jim philosophy is to find new ways to enjoy the sun while keeping our eyes protected. They want to ensure we continue to see the most vibrant colours through their lenses so we can enjoy the sun and the vibrant colours of the world without damaging out eyes and the sensitive skin that surrounds them.
