With the time change, the weather has taken a drastic turn. With this temperature difference, a few of my patients are complaining about foggy eyeglasses. What is fog? Fog is a water vapor which is condensed into tiny droplets lying close to a surface. When it’s on a pair of glasses, it hinders your vision and may affect your activities. This is very bothersome because patients have to wipe their glasses with a cleaning cloth each time they go from the colder outdoor to warmer indoor environment.
Last year, Essilor has come up with a new solution. This new product is called “Optifog”. How does it work? The lenses have a unique fog repellant property. The property is enhanced with a specific concentrate called the “Optifog Activator”. Each week, you will have to apply this activator to the lenses. This will repel all the tiny droplets off the lenses, and as a result, you get a pair of truly fog-free lenses. This will decrease distortion, blur, and contrast lost from the fog. This year, they are able to advance this technology. They no longer need the “Optifog Activator” and just need a special cloth only. It has tremendously revolutionized the lens industry.
If you are experiencing foggy glasses whether from temperature difference or your glasses fogging up when you are cooking, come by to Avenue Eyecare to ask about the Optifog Lenses.
