All About Vision – Seeing More Clearly

Brand New Lens Technology You Should Know About – Part 1

on March 8, 2012

Working with eyewear everyday is more fun and challenging than one might think.  Just trying to keep current with all of the new products flooding the optical marketplace is mind boggling.  As consumers, we have more treatments and options to customize your eyewear like never before!  I would like to touch off on several brand new products you may have never heard of, but I feel they are noteworthy and can truly enhance your eyewear experience by giving the best vision possible.

The first product I would like to introduce is called OptifogOptifog comes from the Varilux family of products and can be added to your Crizal anti reflective treatment or TD2 hard coat for the best anti fogging treatment available today.  Those of us here in the northeast can attest, winter can be problematic with lenses fogging when you go between warm and cold environments.  Foggy lenses can cause vision impairment that can lead to accidents.  We have all had those “foggy moments” with our sunglasses too, when we are hard at work, playing sports, or just enjoying the great outdoors.

Optifog can be used on sunwear, prescription ski and swim goggles, as well as our everyday glasses to give fog free Another Foggy Momentvision .  Optifog is a two part system; part one is the anti fogging property of the lens that is incorporated with the hard coat or anti reflective treatment, and part two is a drop of activator (which comes with the new lenses) that deep cleans the lens and keeps the lenses fog free up to one week or until it is washed off the lenses.  This product works well and is recommended for people who work in the food service industry, sports enthusiasts, elderly people, people who live in cooler climates, firefighters,  or anyone who hates fogging lenses.  The cost is about $30 – $40 more  depending on lens type and must be coupled with Crizal anti glare or TD2 hard coats.  Optifog is also compatible with Transitions lenses, polarized lenses and is available on most Varilux branded products.  To see a demonstration on how this new technology works or to get more product information, come in and visit us at Family Eye Health.

Optifog is running a series of “foggy moment” commercials right now on television.  Follow the link below to see these humorous situations that fogging lenses can get us into.  The Butcher The Doll The Dog
