The full collection of Kaenon Polarized sunglasses features their patented SR-91® polarized lens technology, each framed with style, fit and function in a variety of lens tints and color combinations. A little something for everyone. Whether you’re looking for that performance golf sunglass to enhance your game or that certain piece of polarized eyewear to help you enjoy the outdoors even more, Kaenon Polarized has sunglasses for men and women looking for the best optics possible.


Glass wasn’t strong enough. Polycarbonate wasn’t clear enough. Neither material allowed for adequate customization of tints and Light Transmission Levels. So Kaenon set out to develop their own completely new polarized lens material. Kaenon’s proprietary SR-91® is the only polarized lens that combines the superior optical quality of the finest glass and the lightest weight, strength and impact resistance of polycarbonate. Only the best properties. No compromises. No short-cuts.


After creating the world’s first non-compromising polarized sunglass lens and witnessing its superior clarity, Kaenon realized that they had to introduce industry-altering SR-91® polarized prescription sunglasses, so everyone could enjoy it’s benefits.

Staying true to the passion that drove them to create SR-91®, they knew that their polarized prescription sunglasses deserved the pioneering of cutting-edge, computer-aided lens processing techniques and production methods years ahead of other large industry players. Today Kaenon’s prescription eyewear is produced to rigorous quality control specifications and guided by a 21-point inspection process to ensure both technical and aesthetic exactness.

SR-91® prescription lenses are offered in Single Vision for those requiring vision correction up close or at a distance, and in Freestyle Progressive for those who require correction up close, far away and everywhere in between.


Quality: Every detail, from advanced lens material to frame hinges is engineered specifically for Kaenon. Kaenon chooses the highest standards of quality and design to create a diverse selection of frame styles which ensures that they are providing the finest product for all eyewear needs.

Authenticity: Kaenon designers create products that they want to wear. They surround themselves with like-minded athletes and individuals who share their core values. Kaenon stands behind their product and values; what they say, and who they are, is what you get.

Performance: You play hard and need eyewear that is up to the task, but Kaneon believes that style and performance are not mutually exclusive. From the first design sketches of their frames to their proprietary SR-91® lens material, everything they design is ready to perform with the highest expectations both on and off the field of play.


Kaenon (pronounced: KAY-nun) emerged in 2001 from an intense passion and a clear desire to never compromise. Kaenon was founded by two brothers who were unsatisfied with the sunglasses available on the market. Determined to create something better, they developed the proprietary polarized SR-91® lens — the world’s first non-compromising polarized lens. Wrapped in unique, California-designed frame styles built for comfort and performance, along with distinct colorways and hand-painted treatments unique to Italian craftsmen, Kaenon sunglasses became more than a reality, they raised the standard in performance eyewear.

Starting with the very first innovation, SR-91, Kaenon has continued to raise the bar within the optical industry, pioneering a variety of new eyewear options like Freestyle Progressive SR-91 polarized prescription lenses, so that everyone, regardless of their eyewear needs, can enjoy the Kaenon experience.
