Aloha from Hawaii! Maui Jim sent me a cute new pair of prescription Sunglasses to review all the way from their home in Hawaii!
I have been in the market for some good prescription sunglasses. I usually would wear my glasses and then my sunglasses over them BUT since I recently got a new pair of glasses my old sunglasses do not fit over them at all. I decided to go with some cute Rainbow Falls Sunglasses in Abalone color and I fell in love! Not only are they super chic and stylish BUT they are lightweight and I don’t have to feel like I have a million glasses piled onto my face!
“The pale pink look of Rainbow Falls (Style #225, $319 US MSRP) is a stand-out, especially in Abalone and White with Maui Rose lenses. The sun rises on this large-scale, glamorous frame with swirls of color in a hand-patterned, high-grade nylon wrap sunglass. This frame is not only stylish, but it can withstand a wide range of activities because the Maui Evolution® lenses offer high-performance optics combined with scratch- and impact-resistant properties. Rainbow Falls can go from vespa to the beach and not miss a beat. This style is also available in Cinnamon/Bubblegum with HCL Bronze lenses or beautiful White Pearl/Lilac with Maui Rose lenses. This style has an eye size of 63 mm; bridge size of 17 mm; and temple length of 120 mm, as well as an 8-base curvature. They are available with MauiPassport® prescription lenses.” (Maui Jim Sunglasses)
I have taken my sunglasses to the pool, driving, park and more and they protect my eyes and look cute!
I absolutely love the feel of these glasses on my face. I don’t have to push them up or adjust them, they sit perfectly where they are supposed to be! Maui Jim has tons of new Women’s sunglasses and Men’s of course that I love!
One of my favorites is the Pikake! I love that you can select which color lens that you want instead of just a standard.
“Available in 3 color combinations, this style features a feminine, modern shape with MauiGradient® lenses for a stylish touch.
- Perfect for: Protecting against wind and blowing debris by the pool or topside - lens treatments and frames are saltwater safe.Design: A great complement to Maui Jim’s full frame nylon collection and the MauiGradient® family.
Shape: Round frame complements many face shapes.
Care: Maui Jim case and cleaning cloth included.” (Maui Jim Website)
“HOW IT ALL BEGAN
Now the fastest growing premium polarized sunglass maker in the world, Maui Jim got its start in 1980 as a small company selling sunglasses on the beach in Lahaina, Hawaii. 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, our fledgling company engineered the revolutionary PolarizedPlus® lens. Incorporated into seven new sunglass styles, our Classic Collection was introduced. And with that, we have steadily built a cult following.
Over the years, Maui Jim has continued to offer our fans high-performance design developments. In 2004, PolarizedPlus2® technology revolutionized the sunglass market – patented, color-enhancing treatments in the form of rare earth elements were added to our lenses to really pop the colors your eye takes in.
In 2006, our new 24,000 sq ft state-of-the-art direct surfacing lab was built to ensure precision prescription optics. A year later, we introduced MauiReaders®.MauiPassport™ followed in 2008, offering prescription wearers wide views and outstanding acuity. That same year, our new MauiHT™ lens brought clarity to low-light conditions.
