I believe in investing in good sunglasses with a UV protection, like my pair of Maui Jim sunglasses – a travel must-have accessory. As some of you know, I am very vocal about skincare and skin protection and the use of antioxidants and a high SPF.
Just like your skin, your eyes need protection from exposure to the sun’s rays. Maui Jim’s patented PolarizedPlus2® lenses eliminate 100% of UV radiation and provide protection against a number of additional stresses, helping your eyes stay healthy so you can keep taking in all the world’s beauty.
Too much UV exposure has been associated with many long-term eye issues. The most well-known problem is cataracts. Over years of exposure, UV rays damage the lens inside your eye, making it cloudy as the proteins unravel and tangle (which is what creates cataracts).
What makes my pair of Maui Jim sunglasses so great is that they are ideal for everyday use in a variety of light conditions. Polarization makes them an excellent choice for driving or traveling or different weather conditions, like in London, where I put them to the test.
These sunglasses had the clearest lenses—with no perceptible distortion and possibly some of the lightest frames in sunglasses I have ever own. I’ve never encountered sunglasses that I can wear for hours on end without somehow hurting my nose, ears, or both. Like for example, during my recent U.K. trip, I had a few afternoons where, despite five-plus hours of wandering around London and traveling the underground with them on, I had completely forgotten I was even wearing the Maui Jims. Thanks to their exceptional clarity and polarization, everything, including the scenery around me looks sharper with these lenses on.
As a company, Maui Jims put a ton of technology into their lenses. These are just a few of the components which make Maui Jim sunglasses great!
- PolarizedPlus2® Technology
- Vivid Lens Colours
- Backside Anti-Reflection Coatings
- Easy to clean lens coatings
