OptoTech developed FOG Protect coating process

Wearing a face mask, fast temperature changes, doing outside sports, opening the oven or the dishwasher – almost every wearer of spectacle lenses is facing the problem of foggy lenses. To solve this problem, OptoTech developed the new FOG Protect coating process.

FOG Protect is a combination of a special process that replaces the last hydrophobic layer, special FOG Protect pills (available in a Basic and Premium version) and pre-treated microfibre cloths. In the Basic version, the FOG Protect properties have to be activated once a day with the cloth, in the longer lasting Premium version only once a week, giving the wearer maximum comfort by ensuring maximum fog protection.

The result is a “no foggy” lens for a long-lasting clear vision and better scratch resistance. One pill lasts for both lens sides. FOG Protect is available for every AR-coating machine (also non-OptoTech) and it is no change of machine parts necessary. It can be applied on RX-lenses, sunglasses, sport lenses and more
