Fog is a water vapor which is condensed into tiny droplets lying close to a surface, like lenses in glasses, which limits visibility. Most of the time, eyeglasses become foggy when you move from a cold to a hot environment. For us Floridians, this typically happens when we move from the cold AC inside to the warm and humid outside environment.
At the end of 2011, Essilor came out with a new product, “Optifog”. How does it work? The lenses have a unique fog repellent property that is enhanced with a specific concentrate called the “Optifog Activator”. Each week, you apply this activator to the lenses. This will repel all the tiny water droplets off the lenses resulting in a pair of truly fog-free lenses. This will decrease distortion, blur, and contrast lost from the fog.
If you’ve been frustrated by foggy lenses, we would recommend the addition of Optifog technology to your next pair of eyeglasses or sunglasses. Come by Academy of Eye Care and ask about it today!
