Costa 580 Silver Mirror Lens
Costa Del Mar is celebrating its 25th anniversary with a traditional  offering of silver - Costa 580 Silver Mirror lenses. Costa calls these lenses the most revolutionary update to sunglass-lens technology since it launched blue- and green-mirror lenses in the mid- to late 1980s.
The 580 silver mirror lens is built on a high-contrast copper-based glass, similar to Costa's green mirror lens. But the silver lens' greater light transmission better accommodates low-light conditions, whether you're spotting fish at dawn, under cloudy skies or through murky water. All 580s block yellow light, cutting glare and improving visual acuity. So other colors - like red, blue and green - can be seen at extraordinary levels, with superior definition and color saturation. In my experience, looking through 580s makes the world look high-def.
The lenses also feature an anti-reflective coating and strong, embedded UV protection, which helps prevent eye fatigue and   sun damage.
Costa's new 580 silver mirror lenses are available in all frames except rimless and shields. Prices start at $209. Call 800-447-3700, or visit
