Are Maui Jim lenses made of glass

We currently offer five different lens materials for our sunglasses.  Each style of polarized sunglasses from Maui Jim is only available in one material. 

  • Maui Evolution - The perfect lens for your active lifestyle, this material fuses the best properties of our popular lens materials: it has the light weight and scratch/shatter resistance of polycarbonate while offering a much higher optical clarity with our patented polarized lenses with UV protection.
  • Polycarbonate - This lightweight lens is injection molded for clear optics and is also scratch-resistant. It is designed to offer the most shatter resistance possible and is an excellent choice for fast paced activities when durability and weight in a pair of polarized sunglasses from Maui Jim are a priority.
  • SuperThin Glass - This lens material provides the best optics available and is 20% thinner and lighter than standard laminated glass. It offers the best scratch and solvent resistance lenses for long-wearing comfort, all while maintaining the best in clarity for our sunglasses with polarized lenses.
  • Maui PureThis material combines optics almost as crisp as SuperThin Glass with ultralight weight and excellent scratch and shatter resistance.

Maui Brilliant - Our most advanced lens material that features optics nearly as clear as glass with just one-third of the weight.
