Hobie Eyewear Lens Technology

Hobie® Eyewear has always stood for the highest quality polarized lenses available. With the addition of our new revolutionary HydroClean™ lens coating, you get unmatched vision on and off the water. The lenses start with Hobie’s proven polarized film technology. A series of enhanced hydrophobic and anti-reflective coatings are then applied to each lens under carefully controlled conditions. The result is a lens that sheds water, resists dust and grime and is easy to clean. Our HydroClean™ Polarized lenses continue the Hobie® Eyewear tradition of eliminating glare, innovation and quality you’ve come to trust and rely on.


The lightweight Injected Polycarbonate HydroClean™ Polarized lenses are for active sports as well as everyday wear. Each lens is comprised of 100% polarized injected polycarbonate: the lightest lens material offered that is virtually shatterproof with hard-coatings for scratch resistance. 


Our lightweight Injected Polycarbonate or Nylon HydroClean™ 360° polarized lenses offer superior optical clarity and 360° of protection through dual-coated layers that repel water, prevent sweat and sunscreen from building up, and are easy to clean.
