Why are Maui Jim sunglasses so amazing?
For many reasons! First and foremost, all their lenses are polarized. Polarization reduces glare, improves contrast and clarity, which in the long run can help reduce eye fatigue. When looking through Maui Jim sunglasses, the colours of your surroundings will be enhanced and more vibrant. Their PolarizedPlus2® lenses eliminate 99.9% of glare, allowing you to see the world at its brilliant best. Generally, their products are comfortable and lightweight. Maui Jim sunglasses are also durable.For all of these reasons, Maui Jim is definitely one of the brands of sunglasses preferred by the IRIS team members.
