Product Info Frequently Asked Questions

  • How are my Costa sunglasses polarized?

    Costa sunglasses are beyond polarized. Most polarized lenses eliminate glare by blocking reflected light. But our patented 580 lenses go a step further, blocking the perfect amount of yellow light while enhancing reds, blues and greens. All so you can experience greater contrast and improved clarity out on the water.

  • How do I care for my Costa sunglasses?

    A lens cleaning solution and our premium microfiber cleaning cloth are your best bets for keeping your Costas in top shape. Keep them in their protective case, away from extreme temperatures (translation: don't leave them on the dash of your pickup). Regular tightening of your hinge screws will also help maintain your frame. Follow these guidelines and your Costas will help you see what's out there for years to come.
