Tired of foggy glasses? Optifog is here

Facemasks are not the most comfortable things to wear and when you’re a spectacle wearer it can be even more frustrating when you’re met with foggy glasses!

So why do glasses fog up?

When you wear a mask and your warm breath hits the cold surface of your glasses, the result will be fogged up glasses.

What can we do to stop this annoying problem?

There are a few things you can try and do to prevent fogging such as wrapping the ends of your mask around your glasses rather than your ears to make the mask fit more snug around your face and switching to contact lenses. If these solutions don’t seem to help, Essilor’s newest Optifog technology provides an answer to this irritating problem.

What is Optifog?

Optifog lenses have a unique breakthrough anti-fog layer on both the front and back surface. As well as fog repellence, Optifog lenses provide wearers with great visual comfort with protection against reflections and scratches. The solution also has the ability to keep lenses fog-free even in extreme conditions, thanks to an integrated and immediate fog-repellent technology.

What about when I don’t have to wear a mask? 

Even when you’re not in a mask, everyone can find fog annoying when carrying out their daily activities. E.g. while drinking hot beverages, eating hot food, boiling a kettle, cooking, opening the dishwasher, moving from cold to hot environments, giving a child a bath, etc… the list is endless!

Foggy lenses can also affect you during daily leisure activities like running, cycling, hiking, golfing, skiing, and more.

Why should I purchase Optifog when we won’t be wearing facemasks forever?

Not only does Optifog create a great solution for professionals frequently moving from cold to hot environments, such as cooks, delivery drivers, florists, etc, those who need to wear a mask or helmet will also be familiar with water condensation appearing on lenses, such as doctors, nurses, military, air traffic controllers, biologists, construction workers and fire-fighters, etc.
