Lens Philosophy

The innovators of Costa sunglasses understand that light conditions are constantly changing. Due to this, it is important to choose the right color Costa lenses to get the most out of your pair of shades. To reach this need, Costa offers seven lens colors, which range from low-light like dawn to extremely bright light with the blinding glare. (Color lens choices, descriptions, and best uses are shown below)

Lens Technology

Costa's 580 technology goes beyond polarization to produce the clearest lenses on the planet. This technology makes it possible to selectively filter out the harsh yellow and harmful high-energy ultraviolet blue light, making colors brighter and objects appear more defined.

Lens Material

The main key you need to know when buying your Costa sunglasses is understanding the difference between polycarbonate and glass lenses. Costa glass and polycarbonate lenses have 100% UV blockage for maximum protection and 100% polarization to kill reflected glare. Costa's glass lenses provide the clearest optical experience, especially on the water. Costa polycarbonate lenses are more practical in regards to price and the clarity still meets their standards.
