There’s no doubt about it, sunglasses make a person look better while adding some cool points. However, we often forget that the most important job of sunglasses is to protect your eyes – so we end up sacrificing our eye health for aesthetics. There is a way to do both, though! I’ve teamed up with Maui Jim sunglasses to show you how to upgrade your look while also maximizing functionality.
Why Maui Jim sunglasses you ask? They go above and beyond by offering PolarizedPlus2 lens technology, which wipe away 99.9% of the glare coming from any surface, while also providing a 100% protection against harmful UV rays. Here, I’m photographed on a very sunny day at the New York Public Library . This was the first time I was testing Maui Jim’s under truly sunny conditions and I have to say that I was truly impressed. As soon as you put them on you notice the amazing clarity and detail you would not have in other sunglasses. Oh, and if you’re wondering, I’m rockin’ the Guardrail aviators which are super comfortable and light weight.
Check out the many other advantages of PolarizedPlus2 technology below.
UV Protection. Lenses block 100% of all harmful UV rays, protecting your eyes from damage and long-term health risks. Sunglasses that do not provide UV protection can actually cause more damage because they shade the eye, causing the pupil to dilate and allow in more UV rays.
Skin Cancer Prevention. Maui Jim sunglasses have earned the Skin Cancer Foundation Seal of Recommendation as an effective UV filter for the eyes and surrounding skin. The frames also play a role, so larger frames and wraparound styles should be considered for activities that require being outside for longer periods of time.
Eye Comfort & Strength. By eliminating 99.9% of glare and reducing the impact of the sun’s brightness, Maui Jim lenses allow your eyes to stay relaxed. Without the need to squint and strain, you can avoid eye fatigue, wrinkles around the eyes, and even headaches. Your eyes also maintain their ability to rapidly adapt to changing light levels and potential hazards like headlights at night. With Maui Jim Sunglasses your eyes stay more comfortable, allowing you to spend more time enjoying activities in the sun.
Blue-Light Protection. High-energy Visible Radiation (HEV), also known as blue light, has lower energy rays than UV, however recent research suggests they can penetrate deeply into the eye and cause damage. Maui Jim patented lens technology, including their proprietary blend of rare Earth elements, provides highly effective HEV reduction without removing the beautiful blues of the world.
Scratch Resistance. Maui Jim glasses naturally provide a high level of scratch resistance. For MauiPure®, Maui Evolution® and polycarbonate lenses, durability and long-term performance are enhanced with the application of proprietary CLEARSHELL® treatment to both the front and back of the lens.
Water & Oil Proof. Permanent waterproof and oleophobic (oil repellant) coatings are applied to all lenses so that they won’t wear off over time. Maui Jim Sunglasses will quickly shed water and snow, and any smudges or fingerprints on the front or back will wipe away easily.
The great part about all of is that you don’t have to sacrifice looking good in order to get premium sunglass lenses. Maui Jim offers many fashionable options to choose from that will meet any lifestyle. Feel free to check out some of the new arrivals here.
