Costa is an ocean-inspired brand loved by many fishermen, surfers and watersports enthusiasts. Learn why a brand founded in 1983 by Ray Ferguson in Daytona Beach, Florida, remains so popular today. A few standout features include 580 Polarized Lenses, bioresin frames sourced from recycled fishing nets and the brand’s support for the #OneCoast charity campaign and partnership with the non-governmental organization OCEARCH to protect ocean wildlife.
Glare-Cutting Polarized Lenses
The advanced 580 lens polarization technology in all authentic Costa sunglasses lenses is one of the main reasons fishermen appreciate this brand. You can also customize prescription lenses with single-vision, bifocal or progressive lenses–if these options are compatible with your preferred frames–and select your choice of lens color and the option for polarization.
Polarized lenses filter out sunlight that gets bounced off of reflective surfaces and would otherwise strike your eyes from a horizontal angle. While this lens treatment can be advantageous for fishing, you may encounter difficulties when you try to use your smartphone or any high-tech gear that has a backlit screen while wearing polarized sunglasses.
Lightweight Costa Frames
Many wearers of this brand report that sunglasses stay in place and have a barely-there feel while providing eye protection from glare and UV exposure. Many of the brand’s frames are made out of a very lightweight bioresin sourced from recycled fishing nets.
You can also choose from a wide variety of other types of plastic and metal frames with lightweight designs. Check the weight of frames in grams under the additional information for your favorite style along with the gender, size and dimensions of frames to ensure a non-slip fit. Hydrophilic, moisture-absorbing nose pads and temples help to keep eyewear in place for the whole time you are fishing.
Many styles of sunglasses by this brand are prescription ready. You should check to see whether your preferred style states any limitations on prescription power or strength, such as range of combined sphere and cylinder measurements that lenses cannot exceed to fit a particular frame.
The base curve of sunglasses and the thickness of frame rims both factor into whether eyewear is high-RX compatible. Sunglasses with a six, eight or higher base curve often cannot accommodate strong prescription lenses without causing distortion. Factor in your vision needs and eyewear preferences such as frame shape to pick the perfect sunglasses to wear while fishing.

Why are polarized lenses good for watersports?
Polarization is a process that involves treating lenses to block horizontally reflected light. This brand offers proprietary 580 Lenses that are polarized and offer selective color enhancement based on your choice of a wide range of tint colors. You can also customize single vision, bifocal or progressive prescription polarized lenses.
What are the best lens tint colors for fishing?
The light conditions in your favorite fishing spot will determine how much visible light transmission you need for acuity and depth perception when looking underwater. Consider blue mirror lenses for bright sun on open water and green mirror lenses with a copper base or copper lenses to heighten underwater contrast.
Which features should I look for in fishing sunglasses?
Fishing sunglasses should be the right size to fit your face, accommodate your prescription if necessary and have lens colors and finishes that make it easier for you to see the surface and depths of the surrounding water. Polarized lenses can significantly reduce glare off the surface of open water.
Shop a large selection of eyewear at Safety Gear Pro to find the perfect fishing sunglasses. Costa frames and lenses are designed to stand up to basic impact risks associated with watersports and some styles are ANSI-rated. Select sunglasses that have polarized lenses to block glare and 100% of UV rays and in a lens color that enhances your visual acuity and depth perception to make it easier to get a big catch.
