The Costa rimless sunglass styles now available in prescription sun lenses include: Austin, Ballast, Cayan, Destin and Galveston. An array of lens colors is available, such as gray, copper, blue mirror and silver mirror.
Each of the rimless prescription styles will be available in Costa's patented 580P™ color enhancing lens technology, in either Trivex® or new polycarbonate material, and feature Costa's C-WALL™ oleophobic molecular bond, to repel oil, dirt and water on the lens. The sunglasses also include backside anti-reflective UV protection, for added eyesight protection.
According to the Vision Council, more than 75 percent of adults use some sort of vision correction, with 64 percent of those wearing eyeglasses on a regular basis. Costa recently enhanced its line of prescription sunglasses to include five of its rimless styles, to give people who love being out on the water even more options when it comes to protecting their eyesight.
Costa's 580 lens technology selectively filters out harsh yellow and harmful high-energy ultraviolet blue light. Filtering yellow light enhances reds, blues and greens, and produces better contrast and definition while reducing glare and eye fatigue. Absorbing high-energy blue light cuts haze, producing greater visual clarity and sharpness. Incorporating a bio-based resin frame construction reduces Costa's manufacturing process emissions by up to 40 percent, and cuts the company's overall carbon footprint significantly.
