Seeing a need in the market for technology, that could combat intense glare and harmful UV while bringing the brilliant colors of the island to life they engineered the revolutionary PolarizedPlus2® lens.
What began as their Classic Collection of seven styles, has evolved into over 125 styles of sunglasses, all of which are polarized and protect from 100% of UVA and UVB rays.
