How to Prevent Your Glasses From Fogging Up Due to Face Masks

Do you wear glasses? If so, have you ever experienced having your frames fog up because of wearing a face mask or respirator? This is an unfortunate occurrence that many people experience. The good news is that there are steps that can be taken to avoid this from happening. 

Many people who wear glasses, whether regular or prescription frames glasses, have noticed that their lenses fog up when they wear a face mask. This is because of the pressure and moisture on your glasses from breathing into the mask. The good news is there are some easy steps you can take to stop your glasses from fogging up!

1) Clean your glasses.

Make sure to clean your glasses regularly. For girls, try to avoid wearing makeup around the eye area, as this causes it to sweat more and cause more of a buildup on the lens. Wipe off any mascara or other makeup with a dry cloth before putting on your glasses. Try using an alcohol-free solution, such as baby shampoo, which will not damage your lenses. If all else fails, use anti-fog wipes to clean your glasses.

2) Secure your mask tightly.

Many people make the mistake of not attaching their masks tightly enough to their faces. This can lead to glasses fogging up, as well as moisture building up inside the mask itself, which can potentially be dangerous. Make sure your mask fits securely against your skin and doesn’t move around at all while you’re wearing it.  If it is loose, it will create more areas for air to seep in and cause fogging.

3) Place a tissue against your nose before putting on the mask. 

Another way to combat foggy glasses is by placing a tissue against your nose before putting on the mask. This will help to absorb some of the excess moisture, which can then cause less fogging on your glasses. At the same time, it also prevents any extra moisture buildup inside the mask itself, which could potentially be dangerous.

4) Adjust your glasses. 

If you find that your glasses are constantly fogging up, it may help to adjust the nose pads slightly. This will create a little more space for air to circulate and stop the lenses from fogging up as easily.

It is important to note that these tips are not guaranteed to work for everyone, as each person’s facial structure is different. However, by trying out one or all of these solutions, you may find that your glasses or prescription frames no longer fog up when you wear a face mask.

Have you tried any of these techniques to stop your glasses from fogging up? If so, were they effective for you? Note that having foggy glasses can be risky, so be sure to take action.
