Not all glasses are created equal! To the general public, glasses may all seem the same, but did you know that there are many differences such as the material that the lenses are made out of, lens designs, tints, coatings and other features that can make a huge difference to how well you can see?

At Total Optical, we have partnered with laboratories that provide lenses with superior features so that our patients may see as clearly as possible. For example, Mau Jim have a suite of lenses that come with high quality features such as:

High contrast: When you choose Maui Jim eyeglasses with proprietary High Contrast Lens, you’ll see the difference right away — day and night. More contrast makes it easier to read fine print and makes colors appear more vivid and crisp. Driving at night is safer and more comfortable, thanks to less glare from headlights and streetlights.

Reduce blue light: Every pair of Maui Jim polarized sunglasses and Maui Blue Light Protect clear lenses filter out high energy visible (HEV) light. Better known as bothersome blue light — and produced by the digital screens many of us stare at for hours every day — HEV causes eyestrain, headaches, tired eyes and blurred vision. Put a stop to all that with all-day blue light protection.

Say no to UV: All Maui Jim lenses — clear lenses and polarized sun lenses — deliver 100% UV protection. Why is that important? UV rays can cause sunburn of the eyes (ouch!), cataracts, macular degeneration and cancer.

Prevent skin cancer: Did you know 5-10% of skin cancer occurs around the eyes? Maui Jim polarized sunglasses hold the Skin Cancer Foundation Seal of Recommendation. Wear them every day — even on overcast days — to protect the eyes and surrounding skin.
