Now the fastest growing premium polarized sunglass maker in the world, Maui Jim got its start in 1980 as a small company selling sunglasses on the beach in Lahaina, Hawaii. Seeing a need in the market for technology that could combat intense glare and harmful UV while bringing the brilliant colors of the island to life, our fledgling company engineered the revolutionary PolarizedPlus® lens. Incorporated into seven new sunglass styles, our Classic Collection was introduced. And with that, we have steadily built a cult following.

MDeyes was formulated in response to the findings of the comprehensive clinical research of the Age-Related Eye Disease Study 2 (AREDS 2). MDeyes delivers an AREDS 2 formula in a ONCE DAILY soft gel capsule. AREDS 2: Refining the original AREDS formula. The original AREDS research published in 2001 examined the role of nutritional supplementation in eye health. This landmark clinical study reported positive results for the specific daily supplementation of 500 mg vitamin C, 400 iu vitamin E, 15 mg beta-carotene, 2 mg copper, and 80mg Zinc. In 2013, the results of the important follow-up study, AREDS 2, were published. This study, which cost $200million USD, investigated whether the original AREDS formulation could be improved by adjusting the ingredients. Four major variables were considered: adding Lutein and Zeaxanthin; adding omega-3 fatty acids; removing beta-carotene; or reducing Zinc; as well as combinations of these variables.
