We’re an eco-responsible eyewear brand with eco-friendly polarized sunglasses with 100% UV lenses and optical frames made in Mauritius. Since 2010, the materials we use are respectful towards our planet.
While the sun has many different rays, UV rays are the most harmful to our eyes. UVA and UVB rays are the two basic types of sunlight that reach earth’s surface. Sunglasses are designed to reflect both UVA and UVB rays.
UVA rays are up to 50 times more prevalent than other types of light and account for 95% of UV radiation.
UVB rays are more prevalent at higher altitudes and even penetrate on cloudy days. UVB rays are the cause of sunburns.
Sunlight scatters in all directions. But when it strikes flat surfaces, the reflected light tends to become polarized, meaning the reflected rays travel in a more uniform (usually horizontal) direction.
This intense light is known as glare. Always annoying, it can be dangerous for your eyes’ health.
When a lens is polarized, it has a built-in filter that blocks bright, reflected light. When the glare is reduced, your eyes feel more comfortable and you can see your surroundings more clearly.
Mineral glass lens is created from natural elements like sand and soda ash. It’s non-toxic, endlessly recyclable, far more environmentally friendly and harmless to humans and animals alike. Its optical clarity, high resistance to scratching and lack of distortion make it the world’s best lens material.
Our blue light glasses block blue light from digital devices & reduce eye strain. Opting to wear protective eyewear such as Blue Light Blocking Computer glasses can make a huge difference in maintaining the health of your eyes, improving quality of sleep, having less migraines and headaches.
