Questions & Answers

Is Optifog only for hot and humid countries or cold countries?
No, lens wearers can experience fog on their lenses in all regions even in temperate climate. The frequency of fog may vary but it also depends on individual activities (at work, leisure, everyday life…).

Who should have the new Optifog lens?
Optifog can be used for anyone who encounters problems or frustration with fog, with any type of vision correction needs.

How do I use Optifog Activator?
Apply a drop of the concentrate on each side of your Optifog lenses and wipe gently with a soft cloth.

How often should I reactivate Optifog lenses with the Optifog Activator?
Different wearers tests and market tests have shown Optifog lenses keep their anti-fog performances up to one week in normal use conditions. One may have to reactivate the lenses earlier if they have been in contact with water.

What is the composition of Optifog Activator?
Water, Fluoroalkyl Alcohol Substituted Polyethylene Glycol, Isopropyl Alcohol, Dipropylene Glycol Methyl Ether.

Is Optifog Activator dangerous for one's eyes?
When applied on the lens, there is absolutely no danger. If a drop does come in contact with eyes, just rinse with water.

Is Optifog the first anti-fog lens?
Optifog is the first premium ophthalmic lens to bring a perfect and durable protection against fog, associated with maximum protection against other vision enemies such as scratches or glare.

What is Optifog system benefit vs antifog liquids?
Other systems are sold on the market but with less anti-fog efficiency and less everyday clarity of vision. Optifog also provides a more durable solution than its competitors: the anti-fog coating of Optifog durably retains the Optifog Activator for up to one week, under normal conditions.

Moreover anti-fog liquids sold on the market have very variable quality. Even the most efficient of them can bring only anti-fog properties on standard lenses from a couple of hours up to one day. And some fog can remain on the lens.

May I activate Optifog lenses with another anti-fog liquid?
Optifog maximum anti-fog efficiency depends on the perfect interaction between the lens and the Optifog Activator. The lens has been specifically designed to protect against fog. The Optifog Top Layer has been specifically developed to bring maximum efficiency with Optifog Activator. When other anti-fog liquid are used performances are much lower and can be disappointing for wearers.
