Maui Jim Prescription Sunglasses
Hailing from one of the world's natural wonders, kaleidoscopic colours fill every view on the island of Maui. While the sun brings light to these pristine landscapes, it also carries the potential to tire and harm bare eyes. Maui Jim lenses do more than simply block out light - they harness the power of the sun to make the spectrum more vibrant - while giving complete protection from harmful rays and harsh glare.
If you love your Maui Jims but are also in need of corrective vision you can find nearly our entire range available with made-to-order, directly glazed prescription lenses. Choose from a selection of lens materials, tints and mirror finishes to completely customise the look of your sunglasses, and fine tune their performance to perfectly suit your demands.
Quality frames, fit for the active lifestyle, spread aloha through the eyes of every wearer. Sunglasses designed to change the way you see the world.
In 1980 a small company began selling sunglasses on the beach in Lahaina on the island of Maui, Hawaii's second largest island. Revolutionary lenses defined a brand which has gone on to enhance the way countless wearers see the world.
Taking the experience gained from 30 years of producing quality eyewear, the MauiPassport prescription program delivers authentic, made to order sunglasses for those needing corrective vision. See more of the world's vibrant beauty than ever!
Completely customise the look of your prescription Maui Jims with your own choice of frame colour, lens tint, lens material and lens styling for a completely personalised look with optics tailor-made to suit a host of environments.
Using technology to bring added vibrance to a natural world, MauiPassport prescription sunglasses offer improved visual acuity thanks to an exclusive digital lens design and cutting-edge direct surfacing technology. MauiPassport offers clarity for the widest field of vision possible, so wherever you look, you'll be able to see more of the stunning beauty around you.
Protect Your View
Most prescription sunglasses will correct your vision, but at the expense of obscuring the brilliant world around you. Maui Jim created MauiPassport prescription sunglasses to transform the way you see the world around you. Digitally processed at their cutting-edge, waste-free US lab, MauiPassport lenses provide incredible visual acuity across the whole lens. Combined with the remarkable clarity and colour enhancement of PolarizedPlus2® technology, you'll see the world like never before.
CONVENTIONAL RX LENSES
Narrow field of view with distortion. Inferior optical clarity. High levels of glare cause squinting and make vision uncomfortable.
MauiPassport gives distortion-free clarity across the entire lens. PolarizedPlus2 provides brilliant colour without glare or harmful UV rays.
A premium polarising film is fused into the lens itself. The result is superior precision, total clarity and near complete elimination of glare reflected from any flat, smooth or shiny surface.
PolarisedPlus2 delivers the highest efficiency in blocking reflected glare. Colours are introduced in the polarisation film, and the polarisation axis never changes, allowing your eyes to view vibrant colour, superior precision and elimination of glare.
The Maui Jim Bi-Gradient lens adds protection against overhead and reflected glare, via a protective mirror at the top and bottom of the lens. The mirror "squints" for you to reduce the brightest light from above and below, allowing the eyes to relax.
This technology takes inspiration from Inuit snow goggles, which filter out the most intense light in an extremely bright environment, allowing only a small amount of light through to significantly enhance clarity.
Developed as a stylish alternative to the Bi-Gradient Mirror, MauiGradient® features a darker application at the top of the lens which gradually becomes lighter moving down the lens. This means an appropriate amount of light is allowed to filter through certain areas, while less light filters through in places where protection is paramount.
Gradient lenses are a great choice for drivers and sailors who need clearer vision in the lower lens in order to read instrument panels with ease.
Glare doesn't just affect the view in front of your eyes. "Bounce-back" glare from behind the lens can reflect off the inner surface and cause just as much eye strain as bare eyes would face, and impacting your view of the world.
A patented, essential treatment blocks reflected light and glare from behind the lens, enhancing clarity and eliminating eye fatigue, meaning you can wear your sunglasses for longer, with enhanced comfort.
A Patented, Proprietary Formula
Maui Jim lenses are infused with a patented blend of three rare Earth elements designed to enhance red, green and blue light waves. These elements increase and balance the saturation of colours needed to see, while filtering out invisible parts of the spectrum which only serve to cause interference. The result is that colours pop, and your world comes to life.
All Maui Jim lenses give complete protection from harmful UV, which can cause physical damage and pose long-term health risks to the eye and surrounding skin. Lenses that do not provide UV protection can cause more damage because their shade causes the pupil to dilate, allowing in more UV.
Skin Cancer Prevention
These sunglasses have earned the Skin Cancer Foundation's Seal of Recommendation as an effective UV filter for the eyes and surrounding skin. The frames also do their bit, so Maui Jim recommend larger frames and wraparound styles for activities that require being outside for longer periods of time.
Eye Comfort & Strength
The glare-blocking properties of Maui Jim lenses mean your eyes can stay relaxed all day. Without squinting and straining you can avoid wrinkles around the eyes and even headaches! Alert eyes will retain the ability to rapidly adapt to changing light levels, and potential hazards like headlights at night.
High-Energy Visible Radiation (HEV), also known as blue light, has less energy than UV rays, though it can still penetrate deeply into the eye to cause damage. Thanks to a proprietary blend of rare earth elements, highly effective HEV reduction is provided without impairing colour perception.
Maui Jim's sunlenses are able to provide a high degree of scratch resistance thanks to the use of high quality materials. A proprietary CLEARSHELL® treatment is applied to the front and back of every lens, boosting durability and long-term performance.
Water & Oil Proof
It's inevitable that your lenses will get a little dirty from time to time. Every Maui Jim lens features a permanent waterpoof and oil repellant coating, meaning your sunglasses will quickly shed water or snow, and smudges will wipe away with ease.
Patented PolarizedPlus2® lens technology is designed to enhance your view in every sunlight condition. Maui Jim's four lens tints offer a precision-tuned optical experience, with each tint specialised for a specific environment or purpose.
