Specialized Traffic Light Viewing Lens

Do you have trouble seeing traffic lights when stopped at an intersection because the roof-line blocks the view or the rear view mirror is in the way??

Here is your solution!

LightInSight is a unique new product that solves a problem many drivers have faced, without any costly equipment or installation. LightInSight is a clear windshield mounted fresnel lens for assisting drivers in seeing traffic lights that would not be in the driver's normal field of view.

Many drivers can be seen at traffic lights, scrunching down, craning their necks to see the light changes above them. LightInSight can help! It works great in the MINI, especially for taller drivers, drivers with mobility problems (such as a neck or back problems), or if you like to have your seat raised in the high position.

LightInSight is self-adhering, easily removable, and reusable. It is installed at the top of the windshield, using only a wet paper towel or clean rag. LightInSight is made of optical quality, flexible vinyl and measures approximately 7" by 1 1/2". U.S. patent #6,108,141 was issued in August 2000.

Installation

* Clean the inside of your windshield in front of the driver, near the top.
** Do not use an ammonia-based cleaner **.
* Wet the inside of the windshield thoroughly with water.
* Place the smooth side of LightInSight against glass.
* Do not install in driver's normal field of view.
* Carefully push all the air bubbles to the edges.
* LightInSight may appear cloudy until all moisture has evaporated, it will turn perfectly clear in 6-24 hours.

How it works

A Fresnel Lens was developed by French physicist Augustin-Jean Fresnel for use in lighthouses.

Fresnel lenses consist of a series of concentric grooves etched into plastic. Their thin, lightweight construction, and excellent light gathering ability make them useful in a variety of applications .

A Fresnel lens replaces the curved surface of a conventional optical lens with a series of concentric grooves. These contours act as individual refracting surfaces, bending parallel light rays to a common focal length. As a result, a Fresnel lens, while thin, is capable of focusing light similar to a conventional optical lens but with many advantages.
