(Sponsored Advertorial) Say No to Fog with OPTIFOG lenses!

Do you often face this situation after you alight the bus / cab / car / MRT?

Yes!! I'm talking about fogged up lenses!!!

I don't know about you but i find this situation embarrassing.. So often, i'll wipe it off asap!

So why does fog forms on our lenses? Did some reading and here's my findings:

Fogging occurs when an imbalance formed between the air temperature and relative humidity (Like when weather is warm or cold). This imbalance leads to water vapor molecules forming on lenses in molecular form. When many of such vapor molecules combine together, an opaque film will form over the lenses resulting in a blinding effect that hinders vision!!!

So no matter you like it or hate it, Fog happens anytime and anywhere.. Especially in hot and humid climate like Singapore's, fog will form very easily which leads to an unexpected blindfold that greatly compromising the clarity of vision. 

As mentioned earlier, fog occurs from quick cold-to-hot temperature changes in humid environments due to different situations like:
1) When you step out of a cold environment like air-conditioned offices or vehicles and shopping malls etc.. Fog will attack when there is rapid change in the environment and temperature.

2) When you are engaging in indoor activities (like drinking hot drinks, eating hot food, boiling a pot of water or opening the dishwasher).

3) Any outdoor activities (like sweating when playing sports) which in turn obscures vision and affects performances.
It can also be a persistent problem in many working environments, especially those in which safety or precision are a priority, such as surgeons wearing masks or workers with protective goggles.

As fog is part of our lives and bring about many problems, an overwhelming 75% (Out of 1.6 billion eyeglass wearers worldwide) have expressed a desire for anti-fog solution for their lenses to improve their vision. As such, Essilor being the worldwide leader in opthalmic lenses which helps millions of people daily to see the world better has came up with a product which help battle fog!
