Tom Davies' advice when wearing glasses with the mask.

August 11 2020

Many people have been asking me for my solution to eyewear fogging up when wearing a face mask.

There are reasons you should avoid water and sprays on some frames.

If you have a horn frame, then moisture can critically damage the material.

Some soaps and hot water can also damage the coatings on your lenses. But if you follow these two steps, your specs will be fog free!

Use a bar of soap

Rub a bar of soap directly onto the inside of your lenses in the morning. Then use a lens cloth to clear the lens. The glycerine in the soap helps prevent your lenses fogging.

Wear your mask high up

Wear your mask as high up on your face as you can and then put your frames on top of the mask in their usual position. This helps stop air coming up into the mask”.
