Hyper-Precise Polarisation

Maui Jim fuse their premium polarising film into the lens itself. This results in superior precision, absolute clarity and a near complete elimination of glare reflected from any flat, smooth or shiny surface.

PolarizedPlus2® delivers the highest level of efficiency in blocking horizontal glare. Known as the most common glare, horizontal glare is reflected from any flat, smooth or shiny surface.

Hyper-Precise Polarisation

Anti-Reflective Surface

Just as glare can affect the view in front of you, "bounce-back" glare from behind can cause the eyes to strain and impair your view of the world.

A patented, essential anti-reflective lens treatment on the inner surface of the lens blocks reflected light and glare from behind, enhancing clarity and eliminating eye fatigue.

Lens Styling: BiGradient Mirror

Maui Jim BiGradient Mirror

This 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. Taking inspiration from Inuit snow goggles, these lenses filter out the most intense light in an extremely bright environment, allowing only a small amount of light through to enhance clarity.

Lens Styling: MauiGradient

Maui Jim MauiGradient Lens

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. Available with the Maui Evolution lens only.
