WHAT IS THE BEST WAY FOR CLEANING SPECTACLES?

Cleaning spectacles by using Peeps means you will see the difference.  Many lens cleaners can leave a cloudy glass so clean your glasses regularly the peeps way.  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.

We recommend that for residue that is harsh or more than just fingerprints, to use a good quality microfibre cloth and lens cleaning solution, or lens cleaning tissue/wipe.
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.

Cleaning spectacles with peeps is ideal. No more dry cloths to clean your frame and earpieces. 
Avoid lenses fogging when moving from cold to hot environments.  We have camera quality lens coatings and anti-fogging lenses.

Over the course of a day, your glasses normally collect dust, dirt, and oil from your face and hands. By ideally cleaning your lenses daily with the Peeps method, you can cut down on the overall daily cloudiness you may experience

CLEANING SPECTACLES WITH PEEPS

Unclean glasses look unsightly and can reduce your sight,so clean them regularly 

Wash your hands before cleaning your glasses. To use the Peeps device the lenses must be dry for the pads to absorb any  oils.
If cleaning a wet surface then it’s best to use a microfibre cloth with warm water and a drop of detergent or spectacle cleaner. Hot water can damage lens coatings. Individually wrapped cleaners tend to be better.

Sometimes dust shields or protective eyewear are required in certain environments as well to reduce contaminents.

Do your foggy lenses leave you feeling unsafe or uncomfortable ?

Peeps and optifog are the answer

Trying to drive with foggy lenses? Walking down the stairs with foggy lenses?
Do your lenses get foggy when drinking hot beverages,eating hot food, boiling a pot of water?  Do foggy lenses inconvenience you when doing things around the house 
 – Emptying your dishwasher?
 – Getting ready after a shower?

Microfibre cloths are made usually of Nylon and polyester. However, some suppliers in the market have  lesser quality microfibre cloths.  Unlike the “Peeps” over time the micro-cloth will stop being effective and cleaning in a cold wash with no or mild detergent will improve the cloths cleaning ability again.  Normally a microfibre cloth will last around 2 months used every day, before it starts to lose its cleaning ability.

Cracks at the surface of the lens with various patterns and intensities is called crazing and can be reduced by applying the peeps method.

This can be due to the lenses not having a good quality coating to protect against oils,scratches,waterbeading,fingerprints etc 
Hard coats can vary in quality and with the antireflective multicoats applied . Blooms are a function of the thickness. 
As the coating is applied to different materials scratch resistance and abrasion test regimes such as 100 Blows, Bayer etc show the varying  robustness of these very thin films.
The more flexible the material the more it moves with the coating avoiding breaks.
The benefit of the best quality lens coatings include glare and surface reflection reduction,anti-smudge and antistatic properties. Ease of cleaning and antifogging properties all contribute to why it pays to invest in better quality lenses and coatings.

The name Peeps is also known in the USA as a maker of marshmallow candies 

Peeps candies are produced by the US candy company called Just Born. … The company is named after Sam Born who took over the Rodda Candy company who made the original candy peeps. Peeps are shaped like baby chickens and made of a soft marshmallow rolled in colored sugar, with eyes made of edible wax. The USA produces its favourite peeps company candies, mike and ike,hot tamales to eat.

BUT Spectacle peeps are to clean eyeglasses and are not related to the candy company that make peeps.  

 

 
crazing and fogging lennses

Are foggy lenses an issue for you when playing sports or enjoying outdoor activities such as running, cycling or playing tennis? Do foggy lenses bother you at work where precision and safety are a priority and do you tell your eye doctor its your eyes instead ?

HOW DO YOU STOP GLASSES FOGGING?

We can demonstrate  Antifog Lenses and Antifog wipes. They are particularly beneficial on high wrap frames that sit very close to your face. Earlier generation anti-fog sprays used to leave lenses smeary due to silicon build-up.

Antifog glasses are ideal if you are going in and out of cold rooms, or for underground workers Dust shields, protective eyewear and better lens coatings can also reduce fogging and contaminents. 

Microfibre cloths are made usually of Nylon and polyester. However, some suppliers in the market have  lesser quality microfibre cloths.  Unlike the “Peeps” over time the micro-cloth will stop being effective and cleaning in a cold wash with no or mild detergent will improve the cloths cleaning ability again.  Normally a microfibre cloth will last around 2 months used every day, before it starts to lose its cleaning ability.

optifog

 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 spray on each side of the  Optifog lenses but now has been integrated into the Opti Fog microfibre lens cloth which last approximately 6 months. 

 The ideal is 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

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  will not  be as efficient in terms of fog prevention nor as durable.
