What is the difference between the Hydro Infinity and HydroClean™ Plus lens coatings?
Our HydroClean™ Plus lenses provide an added protective coating on the front side of your lens – shedding water, resisting dirt, and battling against many other substances you may encounter. Our new Hydro Infinity lens coating uses our advanced HydroClean™ Plus coating on the front AND the back of the lenses, providing you with dual-sided protection within more extreme or adverse outdoor conditions.
Do Hobie Polarized Sunglasses protect against UV rays?
Always! Hobie Polarized Sunglasses protect against 100% harmful UVA, UVB and UVC rays.
What is a Polarized Lens?
When sunlight strikes certain surfaces (i.e. water, snow or ice), the bending of light that is reflected off “glare”. All Hobie Polarized lenses contain a special filter that blocks this intense reflection of light, allowing you to reduce eye strain and improve the clarity of your vision.
We recommend using a lens cleaning solution or mild soapy water first, to make sure all heavy particles like sand or dirt are washed away. Then with a soft microfiber cloth (like the microfiber you receive with your Hobies), rub in a circular motion until all the spots are clear.
What are UV Rays?
A UV ray is ultraviolet light that is produced primarily by our sun, these rays are invisible and pose a major risk factor to your skin and eyes. Hobie Polarized sunglasses block 100% UVA, UVB & UVC and provide protection for your eyes against these rays from potentially damaging your eyes.
