Clear vision with solar power

Pioneer Fellows Fabrice Bagnoud and Iwan Haechler have developed a durable coating for all types of lenses that protects against fogging using solar energy alone. Sunlight heats up the lenses with the coating, preventing them from fogging up.

The patent-pending coating is very thin, is produced using industry-standard tools and can be produced cost-effectively.
