About Costa Del Mar
Costa Del Mar is among the most well-known brands of sunglasses for men and women with active lifestyles, and you can order them in your prescription. Even if you wear bifocals or progressive lenses, the brand offers a state-of –the-art option that will meet your needs.
Designed by fishermen, Costa polarized sunglasses are packed with technology that helps anglers see clearly above and below the surface of the water and avoid eye strain that light reflecting off of water can cause. They are precision-crafted to keep up with a tough and rugged outdoor lifestyle.
Costa’s options for men include everything from metal-rimmed aviators to nylon wraparounds that provide peripheral vision protection. Traditional lens tints and high-glare or low-light colors are available in most styles. The women’s line offers popular-shaped frames such as aviators, cat-eyes, ovals, rectangles and rounded edges in a wide variety of eye-catching colors.
All Costa Del Mar sunglasses are 100% polarized and have 100% UV A/B/C protection. Lenses are available in two grades, the 400, which provides superior clarity, and the 580, which blocks nearly all yellow and blue light. Each type is available in glass or polycarbonate, and Costa’s trademarked technology makes the 580 glass lenses 22% lighter and 20% thinner than the average polarized glass.
What Are Polarized Lenses?
Polarized lenses are coated with a special chemical film (or filter) which blocks the horizontal light that causes glare off of surfaces like water or roads. They can greatly improve your vision in bright sunlight and help you see objects more clearly.
Regular (non-polarized) sunglasses absorb horizontal and vertical light equally and do not reduce glare. Even if the regular sunglasses are tinted, which reduced brightness, they don’t eliminate glare or block UV rays.

If it has been some time since your last comprehensive eye exam, considering scheduling one as soon as possible. There are many conditions that can threaten your eyesight, but they often show few symptoms in their early stages. Catching them early can result in successful treatment. Even if you think your eyes are healthy, regular eye exams are important for detecting and treating problems before they lead to vision loss.
