“Inspired by the beauty and culture of Maui, our mission is to spread aloha through vivid color, clarity, and detail.” – Maui Jim
Have you ever tried on Maui Jim Sunglasses? I hadn’t until we were in Maui this past November. We stopped by their offices in Lahaina and my husband was going crazy when he put on a pair – he’s prone to exaggeration so I didn’t pay much attention to him. Well, in this case, his hyperbole was spot on!!!
On one wall of the store is a mural of the ocean. When you put on their sunglasses and look at the mural, you not only see the ocean but now you can also see tons of colorful fish and coral in the water; it is totally trippy to say the least. YOWZA, sign me up, I am a believer in the power of polarized lenses.
I used to think that unless you’re a commercial fisherman or someone who is on the water all of the time, polarized lenses weren’t worth the price. Now that I’ve experienced their magic on land as well as sea, I have to admit that they are most definitely worth every penny and then some. You don’t realize how much glare is out there (especially when you’re driving) until you don’t have it anymore. Plus, their lenses combat harmful UV rays which can cause a lot of damage to your eyes.
Speaking of UV rays, don’t ever buy super cheap sunglasses that don’t have proper UV protection. What happens is the dark lenses makes your pupil expand and your eyes are exposed to even more harmful light than if you didn’t have sunglasses on and squinted instead. Repeated exposure to UVA and UVB rays may increase your risk for cataracts, macular degeneration and certain types of cancer. So please buy your sunglasses from a reliable source or go without……
If you decide to go with a pair of Maui Jim’s, your life will be made brighter and your heart will be filled with the JOY of seeing a more vibrant world.
