Silly question, huh? Actually, you might be surprised by how often we’re asked that. Or maybe you’re curious, too. Besides keeping out the sun, are sunglasses really that important? You bet. Here are four reasons why everyone should wear a quality pair every day.

  1. They can prevent eye damage. Bright or cloudy day, summer or winter, UV rays can damage your eyes in profound ways. Sunglasses keep damaging light out even when the sun’s not shining.
  2. They can stop skin cancer. Where’s the one place you can’t apply sunscreen? Around your eyes!
  3. They can keep aging at bay. The delicate skin around the eyes is the first place wrinkles form. Protecting the eye area keeps you looking younger, longer.
  4. They can help you see better at night. Bright sunlight bleaches the photo receptors in your eyes, extending the time it takes your eyes to adjust in the dark.

That’s why sunglasses make the perfect gift for any gathering. A good pair can provide the gift of sight for a lifetime, and Maui Jim sunglasses do it better than any other brand. Every pair blocks 100% of UVA, UVB and UVC rays and holds the Skin Cancer Foundation Seal of Recommendation.

You’re reading this on your computer, right? Or maybe your phone or tablet? Do you ever think about what the light produced by that device does to your eyes? Most of us don’t. But studies show the average person spends about nine hours a day on devices that emit harmful blue light.

A recent VisionWatch survey found that six out of 10 American adults today report digital eye strain symptoms — things like neck and shoulder pain, blurred vision, headaches and dry eyes. It’s like the new carpal tunnel syndrome for office workers, causing eyestrain, blurred vision, headaches and fatigue as well as advancing macular degeneration.

The good news? Our new Blue Light Protect line features lens technology to combat harmful blue light and protect the eye health of those who spend much of their time in front of digital screens. (In other words, most of us.) And now, you can make these crystal-clear, non-prescription lenses part of your next Maui Jim fitting experience!

Just like a traditional sunglass fitting experience, we come to your event with a combination of Blue Light Protect styles to fit a variety of ages and demographics. There’s sure to be one that appeals to every guest’s lifestyle and fashion preferences. Email us corporategifts@mauijim.com for more information about predetermined or custom packages available for your next event!


What’s the #1 meeting trend this year? According to this research, it’s wellness — an area that’s growing twice as fast as the global economy. In 2017, $4.2 trillion was spent on wellness products, services and activities.

If you’re looking to weave a health and wellness focus into your next event, Maui Jim sunglasses make the perfect gift. Why? Because sunglasses aren’t just a fashion choice. They protect against damaging UV and blue light as well as skin cancer. A good pair can provide the gift of sight for a lifetime, and our sunglasses do it better than any other brand. Every pair blocks 100% of harmful UVA, UVB and UVC rays.
