Dallas-In July, Essilor plans to launch a new generation of Optifog lenses that the company says will make the lenses easier to use because the patient will no longer need to apply a special liquid weekly to activate the anti-fog property.

Optifog lenses include a top layer containing fog repellent properties on both the front and back sides of the lens that are activated through the daily use of the Optifog Activator Cloth, which Essilor says can provide long-lasting protection against fog.

The new Optifog lenses will be available in two options, Crizal and TD2. Crizal Optifog lenses will offer complete UV protection on both sides of the lens, reduced glare, scratch resistance, and will repel dirt, in addition to fog protection. TD2 Optifog lenses will be scratch resistant and protect against fog.

“We listened to feedback from patients and eyecare professionals, and with that input in mind we’ve developed a better, easier way to activate the exclusive anti-fog properties on the lenses to ensure patients maintain clear, fog-free vision,” says Lauri Crawford, senior vice president of marketing of Essilor of America.
