While everyone on the water knows that staring into bright sunlit waters will damage your eyes over time, no one wants to acknowledge that time itself takes its toll as well. If you find yourself stretching out your arms to read some of the fine print in this magazine, then you know exactly what we're talking about. Since you shouldn't lose the ability to read clearly just because you're out on the water, Costa Del Mar recently launched the C-Mates line of polarized reading glasses.
For years, people have had to switch between their reading glasses and sunglasses, sometimes wearing both pairs at the same time, to achieve the visual acuity they require. Costa Del Mar combined its world-class frames and polarized lenses with bifocal reading glasses in two powers of magnification: +1.75 and +2.50.
Consumers can choose from several popular Costa frames, including the Seven Mile and Fathom for men and the new Vela frame for women. Lens color options include amber and gray.
The company's patented polarized lenses use embedded UV protection - versus coated protection, which may wear off over time - to block 100 percent of the sun's harmful rays. Costa's sunglasses exhibit extraordinary color definition and image sharpness through significant reduction of obtrusive glare. All of Costa Del Mar's glasses come with a lifetime warranty.
