Maui Jim Sunglasses

Book Appointment

Maui Jim, founded in 1987 by fisherman “Maui” Jim Richards in Lahaina, Hawaii, began as a small business selling sunglasses on the beaches of Maui. He sought to create eyewear that could combat the harsh glare of the Hawaiian sun while preserving the island’s vibrant colors. Maui Jim’s breakthrough came with the development of its PolarizedPlus2 lens technology, which offers superior glare protection and color enhancement. This innovation quickly gained popularity, distinguishing Maui Jim as a leader in the premium eyewear market. The brand’s commitment to cutting-edge technology, combined with stylish, high-performance designs, has earned it a loyal global following. Today, Maui Jim sunglasses continue to embody the spirit of Aloha, delivering high-quality, polarized sunglasses that blend functionality with a laid-back, island-inspired aesthetic.
