Maui Jim lenses

Lens benefits

  • Maui Jim polarized lenses block 99.9% of glare and 100% of harmful UV rays.
  • Our lenses provide 100% UV blockage and are infrared effective.
  • Our lenses manage 95% of Blue Light and HEV (high-energy visible) light.
    • Blue light is managed by blocking harmful blue light rays while enhancing those needed for natural color balance. Blue light needs to be managed, not blocked, because without this visible blue spectrum your eyes would not interpret other colors.

Lens Materials

  •  SuperThin (ST) Glass provides the absolute best optics available. It is the heaviest of our four materials but is 35% thinner and lighter than standard glass.
  • MauiBrilliant is Maui Jim’s most advanced polarized lens material that features optics nearly as clear as glass with just one-third of the weight.
  • MauiPure is our most popular polarized lens material. It combines optics almost as crisp as SuperThin Glass with ultralightweight and excellent scratch and shatter resistance.
  • MauiPure LT is our thinnest, lightest, and strongest lens material that delivers sunglasses that weigh the same as just two pieces of paper! As with all Maui Jim sunglasses, our patented PolarizedPlus2® lens technology leads the way with unrivaled color, clarity, and detail.
  • Maui Evolution features the lightweight and scratch and shatter resistance of polycarbonate while offering a much higher optical clarity.
  • Polycarbonate is a lightweight polarized lens and is injection molded for clear optics and is also scratch-resistant. Our Polycarbonate lens is designed to offer the most shatter resistance possible and is an excellent choice for fast-paced activities when durability and weight are a priority.

Gradient Tints

  • Bi-Gradient Mirror - The original Maui Jim Bi-Gradient mirror is applied to the top and bottom of the lens. The mirror squints for you to reduce the brightest light from above and below, allowing your eyes to relax.
  • MauiGradient - MauiGradient was developed as a stylish alternative to the Bi-Gradient mirror. A darker application at the top that gradually gets lighter moving down the lens, so the appropriate amount of light is allowed to filter through certain areas.
  • Fashion Mirror Lens Finish - Our fashion lens mirrors are Blue Hawaii, MAUI Sunrise, Hawaii Lava and MAUIGreen. Blue Hawaii is a neutral grey based lens with a full blue mirror coating on top. MAUI Sunrise is a Maui Rose based lens with a full pink mirror coating on top. Hawaii Lava is a bronze lens-based lens with a red/orange mirror on top. MAUIGreen is a neutral grey based lens with a full green mirror on top. These mirror coatings reduce the amount of light that passes through, eliminate glare, and boost color.
