Whether you're lounging on the deck relaxing or just breaking into the waves, premium polarized lenses will protect your eyes from dangerous UV rays. At sea, you're not only exposed to direct sunlight but also reflections and glare from the water, sails, and polished fiberglass hull. If you don't have the right equipment, glare can become a real problem.

What to Consider When Buying Marine Polarized Lenses

Those of us who float will expose ourselves to a lot of UV radiation, even on cloudy days in northern Europe. Inadequate protection can result in UV burns to the eyes. That's why you need to spend a little extra on lenses to ensure clear vision and eye protection while sailing out on the water. Here are a few factors to consider:

  • UV protection

In addition to harmful UV rays, the unfiltered glare created when sunlight reflects off the water and various parts of your sailboat can damage your vision, which can be dangerous. This glare can also cause visual discomfort, eye strain, squinting, and headaches. But you don't need to worry about that, MRY lenses will help protect you from 100% of UV rays. And MRY lenses have the highest level of polarizing films and anti-reflective coating; the front mirror reflects light, while the anti-reflective coating on the inside prevents glare from the sides and back.


  • Lens Colors

Lens color plays an important role in protecting your eyes from UV rays and how well you see contrast and color. Lighter shades offer better performance in cloudy conditions. Also, it reduces eye strain and avoids any color distortion when cloudy. But Bronze Brown, Kommando Bronze, Johnny Red can improve contrast and depth perception. If you're not sure, grey is an easy and good choice because it's a neutral and natural lens shade while still providing excellent Color and Contrast.


  • Hydroleophobic coating

The hydrophobic coating helps prevent water from forming on the lens thereby reducing salt residue. When you're splashed by the waves, the water and salt will knock back from your lenses, and you'll be able to continue sailing with a clear view. Most of the lenses sold by MRY have a hydrophobic lens coating —— an important element for sailors.


  • Durability

Sun, wind, and salt spray are all essential to a perfect day on the water. Unfortunately, they can have a major impact on your eyes. That's why the lenses needed for sailing sunglasses should be impact resistant. MRY lenses have a hardened coating that resists scratching and abrasion. After all, the last thing you want to worry about is your polarized lenses when you're out on the water. So the next time you're looking for a new pair of lenses, make sure you choose a pair that can stand up to these elements. Your eyes will thank you.


  • Anticorrosion

We've lost so many cheap sunglasses because of the power of salt water that we vowed never to buy cheap ones. Let's face it, whether you're out on the high seas or just sailing around your local lake, the last thing you want is a pair of lenses that are prone to corrosion. MRY can help you solve this problem. MRY's lenses feature innovative corrosion protection technology that is dramatically more effective at protecting lenses that are native to the sea. Tests have shown that MRY lenses last more than 8 times longer than conventional lenses. In addition to choosing quality lenses, you also need to know how to clean your lenses correctly. Remember not to wash your sunglasses with sea water just because you are playing at the beach, it can seriously corrode your frames. Some brands of lenses are not corrosion resistant, and seawater can also corrode the lens coating.
