Crizal Lens now come with UV protection

Remember Daddy’s OptiFog Crizal lens review.
Essilor is proud to announce the launch of the NEW Crizal UV lenses for 360 degree UV protection for the eyes!

Yes, you heard Daddy correctly. We normally associate UV with sunblock for our skin, against the Sun’s radiation. But spectacle lens?

Crizal lens already protects our vision against 5 enemies of vision, Reflections,
Scratches, Smudges, Water droplets, and Dust.

Daddy was impressed when a soccer ball smashed into his face, but lens was not SCRATCH !

Crizal research indicates that UV lights :
– accelerate eye aging and the appearance of cataracts
– 40% of UV rays can reach eyes when we are not under full sunlight

Read about how Crizal’s new lens is helping us protect our eyes against harmful UV light. More benefits are listed on Crizal’s webpage –>

From now till 31Dec2012, just name 6 enemies of Vision and you may win Crizal lens. Click for Contest details.

Essilor OptiFog lens, no more foggy moments


Lens fogging is common everywhere. In humid Singapore, when there is a sudden change in temperature, fogging will occur (due to condensation).

Some day to day examples will be sipping of coffee, or when we alight from an aircon bus. When parents are cooling down after chasing the kids, our breathing will cause lens fogging again.

Look at Essilor’s video clip for more fogging scenarios.

Now, the kids might find it cute for Daddy to be “blind”, but Daddy finds it an inconvenience. You cannot do anything until the fog wears off. When Daddy knew about Essilor’s new OptiFog len, he was curious about how lens fogging can be minismised.

Essilor has made a spacial anti-fog lens, they call it OptiFog. Together with a special solution (Activator), Essilor claim it takes only three steps for anti-fogging effect to last for one week !
To be practical. that one week claim is only possible if you do not clean your lens.
Yes, only if you leave the stain and smudge on your lens :p

Daddy chose a half-frame to go with his new lens. In addition to anti-fog, Essilor’s len come with features like anti-glare and anti-scratch too.

After collecting his new specs and lens, Daddy went to Pulau Semakau for some nature adventures. His new lens did not disappoint, there was no fogging for one whole day! You can perspire, you can go in and out of aircon coaches, or navigate the forest walk, no more fogging Yeah !

For our fans and friends, they know Sengkang’s Babies are super active. We enjoy running in our parks, and now with OptiFog, Daddy can safely say lens fogging will no longer be an obstacle to Fun (hello Starfish) !

Daddy would like to thanks the nice people at Vibescomm for giving Daddy an opportunity to review the OptiFog lens. More information is available at
OptiFog lens will be available at leading opticians.

By the way, Daddy is sure this barbie-cooking scenario will not be happening soon :p
