Before wearing facemasks became the ‘new normal’, steamed up glasses were just a sporadic annoyance, experienced perhaps when coming in from the cold or opening a heated oven.
However, the onset of the coronavirus pandemic has brought with it the mandatory wearing of facemasks in many situations and morphed that occasional issue of fogged-up lenses, into a real ongoing problem for spectacle wearers.
If lens fogging is starting to grate on your nerves, Optifog lenses could just be the solution you’ve been looking for.
We are thrilled to introduce you to Essilor’s ‘Optifog lenses’ which contain the latest optical technology designed to give you a clearer view.
Combining a special lens treatment with a smart cloth containing anti-fog molecules, Optifog can prevent your glasses from steaming up, protect your eyes from UV light, are easy to clean and are incredibly durable.
How do Optifog lenses work?
Optifog lenses contain some of the most advanced technology in eye care, including a unique, hydrophilic topcoat with inherent fog-repellent properties.
When you rub Optifog lenses with the Optifog Smart Textile (which contains anti-fog molecules), the hydrophilic topcoat in lenses is activated, spreading any condensation uniformly across the lens for an invisible and fog-free effect.
We recommend that you wash your Optifog lenses with water every two weeks, and to avoid contamination, wash your lenses every time they get dirty or come into contact with a contaminated surface.
After 450 activations (around every 3 months), you will need a new Optifog Smart cloth, which you can pick up or have delivered from your local branch.
