If You Wear Contact Lenses

Sunglasses are a necessary part of contact lens wear.

Contact lenses improve your appearance and fit your active lifestyle.  However, if you are like most contact lens wearers – you may notice an increased sensitivity to glare and a need for protection against wind and dust.  Whether you have been fitted with contacts for the first time or you’re a long-time wearer, your doctor recommends a complete vision care program that includes the use of polarized sunglasses.

Maui Jim Sunglasses with PolarizedPlus Technology are the only polarized sunglasses specially engineered to totally eliminate glare and block 100 percent of harmful ultraviolet rays.  They’re a simple, effective and attractive way to protect one of your most valuable possessions—your vision.

Benefits for contact lens wearers:
  • Maximize protection of the entire eye against harmful UV rays (UV filtering contacts only protect part of your eye)
  • Help keep eyes from drying out
  • Help prevent pingueculea and pterygia – small, non-cancerous growths on the eye that can be caused by excessive UV exposure
  • Improve distance acuity for some patients
  • Prevent dust, dirt and sand from reaching your eye and lodging under your contact lens
  • Reduce the sensitivity to light sometimes reported by contact lens wearers.
Another step toward healthy eyes and better vision.

Your decision to be fitted with contact lenses is one that will reward you for years with comfort, convenience and better vision.  But contact lenses are just one of the steps you can take to assure healthy vision.  Talk to your doctor about protecting your eyes with the patented PolarizedPlus performance of Maui Jim Sunglasses.
