Steps For Replacing Maui Jim Lenses 

Maui Jim Lenses and how you can replace them

There are a few things you need to have in handy while replacing the lenses of your sunglasses; a small screwdriver and a lens removal tool. 

Step 1

Removing the old lenses is necessary to install the new lens. It typically involves loosening or removing screws that hold the lenses in place. 

Step 2

Before installing the new lenses, clean the frame of your sunglasses to ensure no dirt, debris, or residue could interfere with the installation process or damage the new lenses. Use a mild soap or lens cleaning solution along with a clean, lint-free cloth. 

Step 3

Align the replacement lenses with the frame of your sunglasses and gently insert them into the designated slots or grooves. 

Step 4

If your sunglasses model uses screws to secure the lenses, carefully tighten them using a screwdriver to secure the new lenses in place. Be cautious not to overtighten, as it can damage the frame or lenses.

Step 5

After installing the new lenses, inspect them to ensure they are securely and evenly seated within the frame. Clean any smudges or fingerprints from the lenses using a lens cleaning cloth or mild cleaning solution, if necessary.

And that’s all you need for replacing your lenses. It requires a lot of patience but is a fairly easy job. But don’t get very excited while doing it. Follow these tips while changing your lenses so that you do not damage them. 

  • Handle with care: Treat the new lenses with care to avoid scratching or damaging them during installation. Hold them by the edges or use a microfiber cloth to handle them, avoiding contact with your fingers or other objects that could leave smudges or marks. 
  • Check the lens orientation: Maui Jim lenses often have specific shapes or cutouts that need to align properly with the frame. So make sure that the new lens you’re using is in alignment with the lens socket of your sunglasses.
  • Apply even pressure: When inserting the new lenses, apply gentle and even pressure to both sides of the lens to ensure they are properly seated in the frame. Avoid using excessive force that could potentially damage the lenses or frame.
