Deer hunting season is in full swing and hunters are taking to the woods with a new safety accessory: Clarity Defog It™ anti-fog liquid and towelettes for shooting glasses, eyeglasses and scopes.

Valley View, Ohio (Vocus/PRWEB ) December 4, 2009 -- Deer hunting season is in full swing and hunters are taking to the woods with a new safety accessory: Clarity Defog It™ anti-fog liquid and towelettes for shooting glasses, eyeglasses and scopes.

Clarity Defog It anti-fog liquid and Clarity Defog It anti-fog towelettes have a formula used by the military around the world in vision-critical situations. Just one application can keep optics fog-free up to all day. Clarity Defog It anti-fog is safe and effective on all eyeglass lenses, goggles and optics, even today’s high-tech anti-reflective and super-hydrophobic lenses.
