Are glass lenses better than plastic lenses?

What determines "better" would depend on the type of activities for which the sunglasses will be used. For situations when optical clarity is most important, our SuperThin Glass lenses deliver the highest optical clarity of all of our lens materials, with the added benefit of their natural tendency to resist scratches. As they are glass, they have a lower threshold for withstanding direct impact in comparison to some of our other lens materials, so we do not recommend glass lenses for impact-prone activities. Regardless of lens material,  all Maui Jim sunglasses are equipped with PolarizedPlus2® lens technology, which provide all the same benefits; removing glare, enhancing color, protecting from harmful UV, and beneficial proprietary lens treatments.
