In 1965, Dr. Bob Smith who was an orthodontist and skiing enthusiast developed the first ever sealed thermal lens and breathable ventilated foam goggles so that he could enjoy more ski runs on his outings. Everyone else without this technology had to keep dealing with constantly fogging goggles and had their runs cut short as a result.
