KEN OKUYAMA EYES
"Modern, Simple and Timeless"
This is the design philosophy of KEN OKUYAMA DESIGN. Only modern
and simple designs can retain their glorious value and only improve
with time. Products that people are anxious to possess - although
may not be necessary, rather than products that people are driven
to purchase by form of necessity.
These are just the things that are able to enrich our lifestyle and retain value for the ages. In other words, the products which create a new value for the patient, not to be affiliated with those products that tend to be trapped in the price war.

The harsh glare of the Hawaiian sun is what inspired Maui Jim to design a lens that not only shields the eye, but also improves the color, clarity, and detail of the world around.
Designed with your comfort in mind, our PolarizedPlus2(R) technology reduces the impact of the sun's harsh glare while offering relief from a number of long-term health risks. With lens materials and colors for every condition, the view's better from here!
Maui Jim got its start in 1980 as a small company selling sunglasses on Ka'anapali beach in Lahaina, Maui. 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 we engineered the revolutionary PolarizedPlus2(R) lens.
We take our cues from the sun. It's as much a part of our lives as the air that we breathe. We work in it. We play under it. We relax in it. We are always finding new ways to reveal more of the vibrant colors of the world while protecting your eyes from the effects of harsh glare and harmful rays.
Maui Jim customers are considered a deeply valued part of the 'ohana (family), and we want to feel like family with each interaction. Staying true to our Hawaiian roots, we promise that you will always be welcomed with a warm smile and directed to the help of a dedicated representative. This is the Spirit of Aloha--a way of life that radiates charm, warmth, and sincerity of heart.
Maui Jim's home office is located in Lahaina, Maui, and we still design and test all of our sunglasses there.

Optics has been present in the U.S. since March 2011. Its history, however, goes back to Europe of the Cold War era. That’s when a group of scientists, who were working on developing a material for spacecraft and military use, fused surgical steel and titanium, achieving an exceptionally light, durable and flexible material that is also hypoallergenic. Inspired by its remarkable qualities, in 1980 the engineers of the company started using this unique composite to make frames for glasses. They are handmade, but manufactured with outstanding precision, mastered by over 30 years of experience. Entirely produced in Germany and Poland, OVVO frames bring exquisite European style and unmatched quality.
Weighing barely 0.6 ounces OVVO frames offer unparalleled comfort and unfailing durability. Tests showed that stretched flat frames can hold up to 90 pounds without breaking or wrecking. Virtually indestructible and highly flexible is also screw-free hinge that can withstand more than 300,000 rotations (an equivalent of 205 years of usage) and reveal no changes in structure or appearance.
OVVO Optics’ eyewear is 100% manufactured in family-owned plants in Europe, where each frame goes through 65-85 steps before it is complete. First, using German engineered laser technology the frames are cut out from raw steel sheets imported from Sweden. Then, they pass through the various stages of hand-manufacturing. With great precision and attention to detail the frames are hand-polished, painted, decorated and assembled by a crew of 250 dedicated eyewear production experts. At each phase, they are inspected with care for highest quality assurance.
The end product is a flawless piece of art, sophisticated, comfortable, durable and flexible.
