Yesterday I was outside for most of the day in the freezing cold covering behind the scenes stuff for the new Specsavers campaign shoot. As I stood outside in the cold trying to keep warm my glasses kept steaming up as I was breathing out… do you get that in the cold weather too? I had a little twitter rant about it and someone mentioned to me about Optifog. I have heard about them before along with very mixed reviews. I have never used them but from my research you basically get Optifog lenses and then you spray a solution on top to activate them to stop the fogging.

However, the downside is the solution will only last about a week then you have to reapply it for them to work. There are many people moaning saying if it rains it doesn’t work so well and some people find it to be a bit of nuisance that you have to apply the solution every week for them to work. Some people have said they just want the lenses to be a bit like transition lenses, you just buy the lenses, wear your glasses and they just work accordingly.

How many of you have tried Optifog? If you have, what is your experience with them? I guess I should never judge a book by its cover but for me I am not keen on the idea of needing to spray the solution every week because I know I will probably forget.  It would then not work and I will be left wondering why. Then on top of that there is the rain factor because with UK winter it is quite likely to rain.

Apart from Optifog are there any other options out there?  If so let me know because I would like to explore more on this topic as cooking, baking and coping with winter weather is always a challenge, which I am sure you can all agree being glasses wearers yourselves 🙂
