Lens Technology

Maui Jim Lenses

Lens Material: Polycarbonate

When you need a performance lens which will endure real punishment, polycarbonate is the choice material. This is a strong material which provides outstanding shatter protection. Injection moulded for crisp optics, these lenses are extremely lightweight. The perfect choice for long days in the sun.

Clearshell®

Maui Jim's proprietary, silicone-based hard coating protects the lenses. Glass is naturally scratch resistant, but MauiPure®, Maui Evolution® and polycarbonate lenses perform better for longer with the enhanced durability of Maui Jim's optically correct Clearshell®. This is applied to the inner and outer lens surfaces.

UV Protection

Maui Jim lenses block 100% of all harmful UV rays, giving the eyes essential protection from damage and long-term health risks. Sunglasses which do not provide UV protection can actually cause greater damage because they shade the eye, causing the pupil to dilate and allow in more UV rays.


Hyper-Precise Polarisation

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.

Bi-Gradient Mirror

Bi-Gradient Mirror

The design of Maui Jim's original Bi-Gradient Mirror was inspired by Inuit snow goggles. A reflective surface at the top and bottom of the lens squints for you to relax the eyes.

Intense light from direct sunlight above and from reflected glare below are both dampened by the Bi-Gradient Mirror. This lens treatment is perfectly suited to strong sun conditions.

Anti-Reflective Surface

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.

Seeing is Believing

Every Maui Jim lens is designed to provide a winning combination of clarity, shading, glare reduction and contrast enhancement to provide vision in the truest and clearest colours possible. Maui Jim's PolarizedPlus2® lenses enhance the colours your eyes absorb, so you see vibrant, saturated colours with a higher contrast and greater depth perception. Here's a taste of the difference in vision you can expect from a Maui Jim lens. These images are not retouched.

WITHOUT

Without

  • Intense sunglight washes out colours
  • High levels of glare cause squinting and make vision uncomfortable
  • No contrast enhancement means subtle differences in terrain are more difficult to spot

WITH

With

  • Shading helps to maintain a richness of colour
  • Polarising filter and mirrors block discomforting glare for all-day comfortable wear
  • Contrast enhancement makes colours “pop” and accentuates relief
