Its getting to that time of the year when we wrap up for crisp frosty mornings … enjoy cosy nights by the fire … but as a spectacle wearer do you find your glasses getting foggy when you’re out and about during your day in the winter?

Here at Lichfield Street Opticians we know it has always been a problem for all spectacles wearers that when you go from a cold environment to hot surroundings and visa versa your lenses foggy up and your vision is temporarily blurred until your lenses clear.  It can be a major inconvenience and until now there hasn’t been a product that has completely eliminated this problem.

Optifog coating was introduced last year and it has been has now been relaunched to include Crizal Forte UV.  It won ‘Product Of The Year’ at this years Opticians Awards.  The combination of Optifog and Crizal UV means that your eyes have 25 times better UV protection than without the coating plus a lens that won’t fog up when you move from hot to cold environments.

The top layer of the Optifog coating has fog repellent properties. To activate the Optifog on your lenses we supply you with a bottle of Optifog Activator.  You simply apply a drop of the solution to both sides of your lenses and wipe them over with a micro fibre cloth.  Your lenses are now completely fog resistant!

Unlike other anti-fog sprays you may have tried in the past, which have to been used daily with the Optifog Activator it only has to be used once a week.

Included in the Optifog UV coating is the usual benefits of an anti reflection coating

  • scratch resistance
  • smudge resistance/easy to clean
  • anti-reflection
  • dust repellence
