The soft microfine tissue is pre-moistened with a unique combination of cleaning agents, ensuring that your lenses aren't subjected to any of the aggressive substances contained in many lens cleaners.

AntiFOG Kit for glasses.

Foggy glasses can become a real irritation, especially for those who wear spectacles for long hours on end. It becomes especially difficult to see when you play sports, have a hot drink, or cook. ZEISS AntiFOG Kit is a convenient solution for glasses that can keep your lenses fog free for up to 72 hours. This means clearer, more comfortable vision, even when you have to wear a face mask.

  • The combination of ZEISS AntiFOG spray applied with the ZEISS AntiFOG Cloth can make your lenses stay fog-free for up to 72 hours without influencing optical quality.
  • ZEISS AntiFOG spray and ZEISS AntiFog Cloth leaves behind a thin film (comparable with a temporary additional coating) on the lenses. This ensures that fine, condensed water droplets cannot adhere to the lens surface.
  • Thanks to the specially developed cloth, this process is quick, gentle and does not damage the lens coating.
  • This product can be used with coated snow goggles, sunglasses, helmet visors, ski, swimming and diving goggles as well as with lenses for computer glasses, protective eyewear and camera lenses.

How to use the AntiFOG Kit

  1. In order to ensure that ZEISS AntiFOG works optimally, the lenses should first be cleaned using ZEISS Lens Wipes or Lens Spray to remove any dust or dirt from the lenses.

ZEISS Smartphone Wipes

Mobile phones, monitors and laptop screens attract dust quite easily, and this can make it difficult to see and work properly. These items are also touched regularly, and it’s important to clean them on a regular basis to prevent the possible spread of germs. The easiest and safest way to clean your digital devices is with a wipe specially designed for screens. These are often pre-moistened, so you don’t run the risk of damaging your expensive digital items by overwetting them.

  • Specifically developed for the gentle and effective cleaning of digital devices (Smartphones, tablets, laptops and computers).
  • Designed to remove fingerprints, dirt, dust and oil.
  • The fast-drying formulation dries in seconds for quick results.
  • The wipes are individually wrapped, so you can clean your devices at home, at the office or on the go.
  • The gentle formulation is free from alcohol, ammonia and fragrances but still cleans all devices thoroughly.
  • ZEISS Smartphone Wipes are soft, microfine, single-use tissues which are made using natural cellulose. This means they are biodegradable and they contain no plastic microbeads. 

How to clean your smart devices with display or phone wipes

  1. Remove your phone or tablet from its case or sleeve.
  2. Open a sachet of ZEISS Smartphone Wipes and remove the folded wipe.
  3. Lightly brush away any dust and dirt from the screen with the folded wipe.
  4. Unfold the wipe and begin to clean the screen and body of the phone, tablet or smartwatch using circular motions. Ensure you clean all around the surface of the device.

5 Tips for Cleaning your Lenses

Don't just reach for your tissue, tie or sleeve to clean your glasses – you're not doing your lenses any favours.

1. Don't just reach for your tissue, tie or sleeve to clean your glasses – you're not doing your lenses any favours. Don't forget: proper lens care increases the longevity of your lenses and ensures better vision. Even when you're on the go, make sure you use cleaning products from trusted experts in the optics industry.

Don't wash microfibre cloths in water warmer than 40° C and don't add fabric softener – otherwise the cloth will leave streaks the next time you clean your glasses.

2. Don't wash microfibre cloths in water warmer than 40° C and don't add fabric softener – otherwise the cloth will leave streaks the next time you clean your glasses.

Scratches can't be wiped away, no matter if you have plastic or glass lenses.

3. Scratches can't be wiped away, no matter if you have plastic or glass lenses. In this case, prevention is advisable because scratched lenses should be replaced immediately. Even if the defect only appears cosmetic, light disperses through the tiny scratch, irritating the eye. That's why it's important to clean your lenses with lens wipes.

Your glasses need a home!

4. Your glasses need a home! Store them in a hard case whenever you're not wearing them. If you don't have a case with you, make sure you put them in a safe spot with the lenses facing upwards.

Glasses don't like extremely high or extremely low temperatures.

5. Glasses don't like extremely high or extremely low temperatures. The heat generated in a car on a hot summer day, for instance, is also something to be avoided. The same holds true for the sauna or the heating at home. Don't subject your glasses to extreme temperatures more than is necessary.
