Anti-Fog for Glasses
So how do you fix fogging?
You may have tried many DIY options for trying to get rid of fogging. There's lots of sprays, liquids and even shampoo. But it’s rare to find something that holds up and really works. The best solution we've found is Optifog. Optifog lenses are a patented anti-fog technology by Essilor.
How does Optifog work?
Optifog comes in two parts- built into the lenses, and a cloth impregnated with special solution The two parts work together to make the surface of the lenses more hydrophilic (‘water loving’). Most normal glasses have a hydro-phobic coating (i.e. anti-reflective) to reduce reflections. This is why your normal glasses fog up easily in your goggles or your helmet. With Optifog, when the temperature changes, water droplets are attracted to the lens surface. This means that the condensation spreads out evenly over the lens surface.
How do we know that Optifog works?
We put a pair of Optifog lenses, wiped them with the Optifog activator cloth, and left the lenses in a freezer for several days. When we took them out, they wouldn’t fog up. The lenses looked as clear as when we put them in!
If you want to see better, and feel safer, we strongly recommend Optifog coating for all sports applications including:
- Ski/Snowboarding Goggles
- Motocross/Enduro Goggles
- Cycling Glasses
- Sports Glasses
