Does this happen to you when wearing face mask or face covering? We’ve got you!
  1. Run your glasses through cold water. Then use a mild dishwashing liquid soap to rub onto your lenses. Rinse your glasses under a gentle stream of warm water, and air dry. Do NOT use your shirt, no matter how tempting! The soapy water leaves behind a thin film that stops the water molecules from forming droplets that lead to fog.
  2. Tighten your mask around the top of your head. If you have a mask with a bendable metal wire at the top – make sure it’s bent in formation with the bridge of your nose. This way air will not travel up onto your lenses. You can also add a pipe cleaner to the top of a fabric mask to get the same effect.
  3. Make sure your eyewear is adjusted properly by your optometrist. If your lenses sit slightly away from your face, this will also reduce fogging. 
  4. Pull up your mask. An easier tip for day-to-day mask wear is to use the weight of your glasses to block the air. Pull the mask up over the bridge of the nose as high as you can (make sure it’s still under your chin too) and let your glasses rest on top of the mask.
