I hate dust, scratches, smudges, fingerprints, oil stains, water stains and droplets on my front windscreen. I clean my Dyno silicon wipers (they are quite good actually) on a regular basis to ensure that they can efficiently clean my windscreen when I really need it. I even apply rain-x on all my other glass surfaces except on the front windscreen.
I hate dust, scratches, smudges, fingerprints, oil stains, water stains and droplets on my laptop screen or computer monitor. I have a ready bottle of screen cleaning fluid (no, not the monster one) to attack those irritants. That’s why I don’t like people jabbing their fingers on my screens.
I hate dust, scratches, smudges, fingerprints, oil stains, water stains and droplets on my spectacles too. Don’t you just hate it when you look at a light source and you see halo effects because of micro scratches on your lenses. When I yawn, some micro waters droplets tend to stick to the inside of my lenses, producing water marks. When cycling, beads of perspiration also tend to drip onto my lenses obscuring my vision. Apart from being irritating, it is also a safety hazard somewhat. Lastly, my spectacles is like a dust magnet. I have to clean them almost every day. I like my spectacles, or more accurately, my lenses to be as transparent and as unobtrusive as possible.
Crizal lenses are able to resist all these enemies of clear vision as demonstrated by Daen from Vibes Communications. He compared the differences between traditional lenses and Crizal-equipped lenses.
Crizal lenses are anti-static so dust particles are not attracted to the surface of the lenses. Definitely, it is not 100% able to repel all particles. If there are leftover dust particles (if any), dust it off lightly with supplied cleaning cloth and they will come off. Same thing with fingerprints, they come off so so easily. No matter how hard I tried to smudge oily fingerprints on Crizal-equipped lenses, it wouldn’t stay there. I could even use my fingers to wipe those said prints right off.
Also, it would seem as though rain-x was applied to the lenses. Water droplets bead up and slide right off. No more watermarks anymore eh? nice.
I was really impressed with the demonstrations that day and I can’t wait (tuesday come quick) to experiment those very features that differentiates Crizal lenses from the others.
