Foggy Glasses while Wearing Your Mask
We have had a few calls about how to keep your glasses from fogging up when your mask is in place. Here are some suggestions to help reduce fogging:
- We brought in a new product, Fog Stopper Anti-Fog treatment, that can be applied to your lenses to reduce fogging. It is easy to use, we can show you how to use it and it is available for purchase in our office.
- Put a folded tissue horizontally between your face and the top of your mask, laying it over the bridge of your nose. The moisture from your breath will be absorbed by the tissue, blocking it from fogging your lenses.
- Use a mask that molds to your nose. These have a flexible wire which can be molded around the bridge of your nose, blocking your breath from reaching your glasses.
- Wash your glasses with soapy water, without rinsing, and let them air dry prior to wearing. This will leave a thin film that reduces surface tension and cause water molecules to spread out evenly into a transparent layer. Wiping a little shaving cream onto the lenses with a soft cloth has similar results.
- You can also purchase anti-fog sprays, wipes, and “sticks” or “pods” (eg. Cat Crap) on-line. All of these will clog the layers of an anti-reflection coating, thus making the lenses less anti-reflective.
Hopefully, we won’t be wearing masks forever, and a good anti-reflection cleaner will restore lens transparency.
We miss seeing all our wonderful patients and friends. Be well and stay safe.
