While Hobie Polarized lenses offer remarkable impact-resistance and scratch-resistance, they should be treated carefully to ensure many years of use. To help protect your eyewear from damage, please follow these guidelines:

  • Never lay the lenses face-down against any hard or abrasive surfaces.
  • Always store your eyewear in its protective case.
  • Always clean the lenses with a soft lint free cloth and quality lens cleaner; alternatively, they can be rinsed with warm water. Never use a paper product, such as paper towels or tissues, or other similarly abrasive materials to dry your eyewear.
  • Do not attempt to adjust your eyewear yourself. Please visit your eyewear specialist for any required adjustments.
