Clearest Glass Lenses in the Industry
The clarity of the lenses is Costa del Mar’s number one feature. The company boasts that its lenses are the clearest in the industry. Costa’s proprietary lens technology is designed to provide 100% UV protection and to reduce glare. The company’s website claims that their lenses provide “the clearest possible vision.”
There are several benefits to having clearer lenses. First, they allow for better visibility in all environments, including low-light conditions. This is especially beneficial for activities such as boating, fishing, and kayaking. Second, clearer lenses reduce eye fatigue and strain. This is because they do not have to work as hard to filter out glare and UV rays. Third, clearer lenses provide better protection from harmful UV rays. This is because they allow less light to reach the eyes. fourth, clear lenses improve depth perception and contrast sensitivity. This is due to the fact that they do not distort colors like some other types of sunglasses lens
Soft, Plush Nose and Temple Pads for Comfortable Wear
Wearing sunglasses is not only a style statement, but it is important for the health of your eyes. Prolonged exposure to sunlight can damage your eyes and cause a number of problems, such as cataracts, macular degeneration, and even cancer. Wearing sunglasses protects your eyes from these harmful effects of the sun.
Most sunglasses have either soft or hard nose pads. The main difference between the two types of nose pads is comfort. Soft nose pads are usually made of rubber or silicone and are more comfortable to wear for extended periods of time. Hard nose pads are usually made of metal or plastic and can be less comfortable for some people.
Durable TR-90 Bio-Based Frame
TR-90 is a bio-based material made from castor beans. This type of material is lightweight, yet durable and is often used in the production of sunglasses frames. TR-90 bio-based frames are hypoallergenic and offer UV protection.
The benefits of TR-90 bio-based frames include their durability, comfort, and style. This type of frame is resistant to both sweat and salt water, making them perfect for use during activities such as fishing or boating. In addition, TR-90 bio-based frames are environmentally friendly and recyclable.
Eliminate Eye Glare with Polarized Lenses
Glare is caused when light reflects off of a surface, such as water, snow or pavement. This reflection creates a bright and intense light that can be very harmful to your eyes. The short-term effects of glare include squinting, eye fatigue and headaches. Long-term effects of exposure to glare can include permanent damage to your vision.
The short-term effects of glare include squinting, eye fatigue and headaches. Long-term effects of exposure to glare can include permanent damage to your vision.
Polarized sunglasses are designed to reduce the amount of reflected light that enters your eyes. This can help reduce the strain on your eyes and the risk of long-term damage from exposure to glare.
The Costa Bloke sunglasses feature polarized lenses that help reduce the amount of reflected light that enters your eyes. This can help reduce the strain on your eyes and the risk of long-term damage from exposure to glare.
100% UVA/UVB Protection
Ultraviolet (UV) radiation is a type of light radiation from the sun that breaks through the earth’s atmosphere and is most commonly known to cause skin cancer. It comes in three different types: UVA, UVB, and UVC.
UVC rays are the most dangerous to humans but luckily they’re almost entirely absorbed by the atmosphere (phew). That leaves UVA and UVB waves as the culprits that cause sun damage to our bodies if we don’t protect ourselves.
There’s something called blue light that’s only slightly longer and less powerful than UV rays—they can do damage to our eyes and even impact sleep too.
Not protecting your eyes from UV radiation can have some pretty undesirable short-term effects on the eyes, anything from wrinkles to sometimes worst-case scenario—cancer. Long-term effects of not wearing sunglasses with proper UV protection can include cataracts (clouding of the eyes), wrinkles around the eyelids, an eye sunburn called photokeratitis, and macular degeneration.
Durable Cam Action Hinges
Hinges are an important part of sunglasses because they keep the frames together and in place. They allow the glasses to be put up and taken down easily.
Regular hinges are less expensive but they are not as durable as cam action hinges. Cam action hinges have a ball that sits in a socket which allows for a smoother opening and closing action.
The benefits of cam action hinges include: smoother opening and closing action, more durability, and less chance of the screws coming loose over time.
Sweat Management for Increased Airflow and Comfort
When participating in outdoor activities, it is important to have a pair of sunglasses that can manage sweat. This is because sweat can cause the sunglasses to slip and become uncomfortable. Additionally, sweat can cause the lenses to fog up, which can obstruct your vision. The Costa del Mar Bloke sunglasses are designed with special ventilation holes in the frame to help with airflow and prevent lens fogging. The lenses are treated with an anti-fog coating to further help with this issue.
A comfortable pair of sunglasses is important for several reasons. First, if your sunglasses are uncomfortable, you will be less likely to wear them. Second, if your sunglasses are not comfortable, they can distract you from your activity and potentially cause accidents. Third, if your sunglasses are not comfortable, they will not provide the best protection from the sun’s harmful rays. The Costa del Mar Bloke sunglasses are designed with comfort in mind. They have a soft nose pad and earpieces made from hydrophilic rubber which helps keep them in place even when sweating.
The Costa del Mar Bloke sunglasses are designed for medium to large faces and fit well on diamond, heart, oblong, oval, round, and square shaped faces according to customer reviews. They have a wrap around design which provides good coverage from the sun’s harmful rays. The lenses are 61mm wide and 45mm tall with a 14mm bridge and 124mm temple length.
