Avoid lenses fogging when moving from cold to hot environments. We have camera quality lens coatings and anti fogging lenses.
Optifog lenses need to be reactivated with the Optifog activator about once a week in normal conditions or when the anti-fog performance is diminishing.
Cleaning with water removes the Optifog Activator. Lenses may need to be reactivated sooner if they have been in contact with water. Previously the Optifog Activator was applied by a drop or sparay on each side of the Optifog lenses but now has been integrated into the Opti Fog microfibre lens cloth which last approximatey 6 months.
Clear, durable fog-free vision with no-glare efficiency no impact on the Scratch resistance or dust repellence is possible.
Fog-free vision is achived by spreading fog into a uniform, invisible layer of water on the lens surface.Fog appears with temperature change, always from cold to hot environment with condensing tiny droplets depending upon temperature differences and relative humidity,time of exposure but on a lens with optifog are spread invisibly on the lens surface.
It can happen when stepping out in the cold, or when entering an air-conditioned environment, and it’s most likely to happen during strenuous activity when the body is giving off more heat, and humidity gets trapped behind the lens.
Fog on the front surfaces disperse very quickly . Fog on the back surfaces is worse due to body heat especially if wearing wrap frames.
During extended periods of time under conditions of high humidity, the lens coating may reach its adsorption capacity and lenses may become covered with a thin layer of water or begin to fog. In such cases, wipe with soft cloth will enable normal fog adsorption to be restored.
EN-166 European Standard is the requirement for the time in which lens clarity is maintained under controlled humid conditions
When do the anti-fog properties might need to be re-activated?
Most water based liquids remove the molecules of the Optifog Activator Cloth
Heavy rain may remove it as well
If you notice your lenses is not fog repellent enough: Simply reactivate it with the Optifog Activator Cloth.
With the latest cloths The Optifog Activation in Inside the lens cloth so applying twice a week should maintain the coating.
The Anti-Fog Top layer placed on the OPTiFOG lenses are activated with the OPTiFOG Activator Cloth. The OPTiFOG Activator Cloth has the power to ACTIVATE and CLEAN the lens at the same time. Just use the OPTiFOG Activator Cloth whenever you clean your lenses. Together they provide fog-free vision by spreading fog into a uniform, invisible layer of water on the lens surface.The Optifog Lens incorporates a Multicoat which is a Generic Multicoat which is similar to Crizal A2 and is on front and back surfaces. This is more effective than stand alone anti fog wipes in cleaning your eyeglasses.
The Cloth is used to maintain the coating and ensure the additional Properties in Optifog are maintained and activate accordingly to prevent the fogging effect on the Lenses.
Essilor crizal optifog are registered trademarks of essilor international and contain proprietary technology just as its other coatings can influence the ESPF (sun protection)
UV can strike the eye directly from around the lens if it does not offer sufficient coverage, based on lens curvature, size, shape, and placement.
In addition, environmental factors, such as weather conditions,sun angle and amount of lens fogging can affect how much UV reaches the eye.
Essilors mathematical model E-SPF Eye Sun Protection Factor was developed as a ratio comparing UV exposure of the eye with and without eyewear, considering the various lens parameters and sun angles. Higher ESPF values represent better overall protection.
How does the Optifog Activator Cloth work on other lenses?
The anti-fog performance :
Won’t be as efficient in terms of fog prevention
Won’t be as durable
We also can clean your lenses and frames,also any anti reflective coating if required using our ultrasonic cleaner.
Marshmallow peeps are confectionary that are shaped into chicks, bunnies, and other animals. Spectacle peeps and an ultrasonic cleaner can cater for even such sticky finger deposits on lenses or as your windsceen finds from the environment.
Ultrasonic cleaning causes bubbles to agitate as air is churned up in water . The agitation produces high forces on contaminants adhering to frame,nose pad and lens materials.
The difference between Peeps and micro-cloth is that a micro-cloth tends to live in a pocket or case and will attract dust and grip particles over time that potentially can scratch the lenses or worse still with paper towels.
Peeps benefit is its brush which ensures no scratching before you clean them and the cleaning pads are kept in a protective cap between use.
The name Peeps is also known in the USA as a maker of marshmallow candies
