Costa sunglasses in a nutshell
Costa sunglasses are built to deliver performance. The lenses used in Costa Del Mar sunglasses are different from your regular polarized lenses. Costa uses its signature 580 lenses that are designed by their in-house light spectrum experts. These lenses enhance the colors and can absorb high-energy blue light that is known to be harmful to your eyes. The lenses also minimize haze and blur to give you superb clarity. The Costa 580 lenses block the harsh yellow light and enhance the red, blue, and green light from the spectrum, enhancing the contrast and making it comforting to your eyes.
Choosing the lens material
Now that you know the special features that Costa lenses offer, you can decide on which material you would prefer for your lenses. Costa 580 lenses can be glass as well as polycarbonate.
The Costa 580G uses lightwave glass, which provides the best clarity. The encapsulated mirrors between layers of glass are completely scratch-proof. The 580G lenses are also 20% thinner and 22% lighter than the average polarized glass.
The Costa 580P lenses are made of polycarbonate that is meant to be very lightweight and resistant to impact. If you are into heavy activity or sports, this may be the perfect choice for you. The polycarbonate lenses are made up of 5 layers, with an optional addition of a mirror. The central layers are held together between two layers of C-WALL® Molecular Bond at the top and bottom. The C-WALL® Molecular Bond is scratch-resistant and adds to the toughness of the lens.
Costa prescription sunglasses
If you need prescription sunglasses, you can go for a pair of Costa Prescription Sunglasses that use Trivex lenses. The Costa Rx Sunglasses can be made with any frame style you like, including single-vision, bifocal, and progressive prescription lenses, so you don’t have to worry about your vision when wearing a pair of Costa sunglasses. These custom-made lenses are laser etched, so you can easily verify their authenticity.
Choosing one of the unique lens colors
The color of the lens has more to it than just aesthetics. Different colors can protect your eyes from different wavelengths of light that you may be exposed to. Costa sunglasses offer seven lens colors ranging from low-light conditions to bright light and glare. The Blue Mirror is meant for reflective open water, the Green Mirror is for high contrast, while the Gray Silver Mirror is for your everyday activities. The Sunrise Silver Mirror is meant for low-light activities. The other colors available are Copper Silver Mirror for natural contrast, Gray for everyday activities, and Copper for driving and variable light conditions.
You can make your pick depending on what you’re going to be using your Costa sunglasses for.
