Maui Jim Sunglasses Lens Technology

The Lens

PolarisedPlus2 Lens Technology

Colour. Clarity. Detail

Maui is one of the lushest, most vibrant places on earth. Yet its intense sunlight creates conditions  that hide the beauty of the island, That’s why PolarizedPlus2 technology goes beyond shielding your eyes from glare and harmful UV to reveal and enhance the world’s true vivid colours in detail.

Glare Elimination 

Glare washes out colours, obscures detail and fatigues your eyes. PolarizedPlus2 lenses eliminate 99.9% of glare, allowing you to see the world at its brilliant best.

Feature the industry’s most advance techniques, Maui Jim’s patented lens creation process creates an amazing difference you’ll see immediately. 

Hyper-Precise Polarization

Maui Jim fuse their premium polarizing film into the lens itself. The result is superior precision, absolute clarity, and a near complete elimination of glare reflected from any flat, smooth or shiny surface. 

PolarizedPlu2 delivers the highest level of efficiency in blocking horizontal glare. Known as the most common glare, horizontal glare reflexts from any flat, smooth or shiny surface. Colours are introduced in the premium polarization film, and the polarization axis never changes, which allows your eyes to view unmatched colour, superior precision and elimination of glare.

Bi-Gradient Mirror

The original Maui Jim Bi-Gradient, the design of this protective flash coating was inspired by Inuit snow goggles. Applied to the top and bottom of the lens, the mirror squints for you to reduce the brightest light from above and below, allowing your eyes to relax. 

The Inuit people of the artic traditionally hand crafted their eye protection from animal bone or antlers by carving horizontal slits across the front of the goggles. Fitted tightly to their faces, the goggles blocked out all glare by only allowing light to enter through the horizontal openings to prevent snow blindness. The same concept was used to flight the strong sun conditions found year-round in Maui.

Blue Hawaii Flash Mirror

Developed as a fashionable option for top-selling styles, Blue Hawaii provides a stylish new look that offers the same amazing colour enhancement and clarity as all other Maui Jim lenses. A blue flash mirror coating is applied to the outside surface of Maui Jim’s PolarizedPlus2 Neutral Grey lens, which reduces the amount of light that passes through, eliminates glare and boosts colour.


MauiGradient was developed as a stylish alternative to the Bi-Gradient Mirror. A darker application at the top of that gradually gets lighter moving down the lens so the appropriate amount of light is allowed to filter through certain areas, while less light filters through in places where protection.

Anti-Reflective Surface

Just as glare can affect the view in front of you, “bounce-back” glare from behind can cause the eyes to strain and impact your view of the world. This patented, essential treatment blocks reflected light and glare from behind, enhancing clarity and eliminating eye fatigue.
