With the ZEISS AntiFOG Wipes, ZEISS is expanding its eyewear cleaning products and cleaning accessories available from specialist retailers. The ZEISS AntiFOG Wipes are based on the familiar ZEISS AntiFOG Set – already proven to work effectively – and are a valuable addition for use on the move. The new wipes prevent the annoying fogging of lenses and are made of a soft, microfine fabric that ensures gentle and careful cleaning without damaging the anti-reflective coating.
Why do lenses fog up?
Behind the phenomenon of fogged lenses lies a simple occurrence: temperature differences between indoors and outdoors – or even high humidity when exhaling under a mask – mean water condenses on the lenses. Many small drops form an opaque surface on the lens, it fogs up and the wearer's vision is impaired.
How do the ZEISS AntiFOG Wipes provide fog prevention?
The wipes leave a thin film on the lens – comparable to an additional temporary coating. This ensures that fine droplets of condensation can no longer adhere to the surface of the lens. As soon as the glasses need to be cleaned again – at the latest, after 72 hours – it is recommended to repeat the cleaning process on both sides of the lens.
"Wet, cold weather – and especially wearing a mask – will remain part of our reality for the foreseeable future," says Andrew Ivers, Global Marketing Manager Lens and Screen Cleaning at ZEISS. "Our new ZEISS AntiFOG Wipes ensure clear vision with immediate effect and are a practical solution that fits in any handbag or pocket."
