Are glass lenses better than plastic sunglasses?

Glass lenses are a great option for polarized sunglasses, just as much as our other lens materials are equally as great. What determines "best" would depend on what type of activities and uses you require. The great thing about all Maui Jim polarized lenses is that no matter the material, they all provide the same benefits!


Our SuperThin Glass lenses are the most optically clear lenses that we offer and have a natural tendency to resist scratches. They do have a lower threshold for withstanding direct impact in comparison to some of our other lens materials though. Below is a visual description of how all our Maui Jim polarized lens materials vary.
