Maui Jim Lenses are some of the best in the business. With patented technology that very few brands come close to. Maui Jim lenses have premium level technology inside of them, that once they're on, you don't really want to take them off. The optical clarity of Maui Jim Lenses combined with a waterproof oleophobic coating, anti reflective treatment, polarising, bi gradient mirror and a scratch resistant layer… could you want any more? Below is a little bit more about these features and why together they make an unbeatable Lens.
Waterproof Oleophobic Coating- This is a coating used both inside and out that repels water, dirt, dust, sweat, rain, snow and other things that can end up on your lens, which makes cleaning them easy as ever.
Anti-reflective treatment- This is a layer on the inside of the lens that absorbs glare from behind instead of reflecting glare back into the eye.
Polarised- All Maui Jim Sunglasses are polarised, which for those of you who don't know, is a layer in the lens that cuts out 99.9% of reflective glare.
Bi Gradient Mirror- The Bi Gradient Mirror is designed to reflect away glare while not forcing you to look through the extra layer. Mirrored at the top and bottom of the lens it reflects away glare from the top and bottom while still providing an all over protection.
Neutral Grey Maui Jim's Neutral Grey Lenses are the darkest available in the Maui Jim Range and are best in bright, direct sunlight, they provide the highest available light reduction for rich colour and contrast.
HCL® Bronze These are best in full sun to overcast situations, as they provide excellent colour contrast for everyday variable conditions. Great if you love a warm, subtle bronze tint. The HCL® Bronze Lens brightens and enhances colours making it easier to see in low light conditions.
