THIS IS NOT THE WAY IT SHOULD BE
Had the same problem. It is a factory defect that Maui Jim does not want to admit.
Basically when they bend the lens they damage the polarising filter. That way filter has non consistent polarisation angle and most of all does not cover the whole lens. This results in darker and lighter colours of the sky in the sunny day http://img716.imageshack.us/img716/8749 ... 9large.jpg
, it also results (which is especially annoying) in all sorts reflections being visible or not by one aye only http://img830.imageshack.us/img830/6510 ... 7large.jpg
. The feeling is like someone would constantly play with a sun reflections on your ayes and is very distracting.
Changing the [link=http://www.opticsplanet.com/rx-eyeglasses.html]glasses[/link] does not help, some Maui Jim models just have it. Arguing with Maui Jim does not help.
After six months and hundreds of telephones I got an explanation on paper:
"It is the evolution lens material that will flex at the edges of the frame when mounted and optically it doesn't effect the lenses."
I seriously can't see any point in adding patchy "evolution" filter to lenses. Also the question arises if only the polarising filter is patchy or maybe others are as well.
My suggestion is - change them and choose a different manufacturer (which worked for me), or get a lawyer.
