WESTWOOD, Mass.-( Few things are more frustrating than having shooting glasses fog up while lining up sights on a target or swinging a scattergun over a flushing pheasant.

Lenses fog for several reasons, all related to temperature and humidity. A change in environment, such as leaving a building, entering a different room, or getting in and out of a vehicle can transform the water vapors hitting one’s lenses into frustrating fog. The vapor creating the fog often comes from the wearer’s own breath or sweat, so something as simple as a change in body position can result in vapors collecting or condensing on the lens surface.

Hunters and shooters often wear eye protection in dynamic environments. Removing glasses for repeated wiping is a non-starter. The solution is a durable, reliable lens coating.

New UVEX Hydroshield Anti-Fog Coating provides excellent scratch resistance, while helping to keep lenses fog free up to 90X longer than many other popular anti-fog products. It also offers 99.9-percent protection from harmful UVA and UVB ultraviolet radiation. This exceptional performance is confirmed by independent lab tests comparing other UVEX anti-fog coated safety glasses using stringent European EN166/168 standards.

Hydroshield Anti-Fog Coating is permanently bonded to the lens, which means it needs no reapplication or maintenance. It features dual-action (hydrophilic and hydrophobic) properties. Without getting too technical, this means moisture is first absorbed by the lens. Once water droplets form, they are repelled to the sides of the lens.

Hydroshield is available on two models of Howard Leight by Honeywell UVEX eyewear: the military ballistic-rated UVEX Genesis model R-02229 with black frame and clear lenses, and the all-new UVEX Hypershock R-02230 model with black frame and clear lenses.
