How to Prevent Your Glasses from Fogging Up

Share on

In the current climate, face masks are becoming an increasingly common and necessary accessory, for the benefit of both your health and the health of others. The World Health Organization has recommended that the wearing of face masks can help to curb the spread of coronavirus. However, wearing a face mask and glasses at the same time can lead to a problem; foggy lenses. So, what can you do about it?

Why do your glasses fog up?

It is the combination of body heat and airflow that can lead to your glasses fogging up. When you wear a face mask, you are breathing out warm air, which mostly escapes through the top of your mask and steams up your lenses.

Your warm breath lands on the cooler surface of your lenses, which causes a fog effect and makes it difficult to see.

How to stop your glasses from fogging

There are some simple steps you can take to avoid your glasses fogging up whenever you are wearing a mask. 

  1. Making sure your face mask fits well is a good start, as a more snugly fitted mask can encourage air to escape through the sides or the bottom of the mask.
  2. Adjust your glasses, so they sit slightly further away from your face; this can allow air to escape instead of becoming trapped between your face and lenses.
  3. One of the most effective and long-lasting solutions to prevent your glasses fogging up is to invest in an anti-fog lens coating.
