Mask + Goggles = FOG! How do I prevent my glasses from fogging up?
Wearing a mask is now compulsory in many countries including France. Whether in public transport, in public places, in high schools, the mask has quickly become an essential part of our daily lives.
Why is my prescription glasses or sunglasses fogging up?
When you wear eyeglasses and a mask or a mask-visor for several hours, everyone can notice the formation of fog on the glasses .
Indeed, when exhaling the hot breath mainly escapes through the top of the mask and comes into contact with the glasses lenses. The vapor thus created fogs the lenses and makes vision uncomfortable and blurred. In addition, this excess humidity reduces the grip of your glasses on the nose and they slip more.
The importance of positioning your mask correctly?
Positioning your mask correctly is the first thing to do to prevent fogging! This will best protect you from the various particles suspended in the ambient air (pollens, viruses, bacteria...) and less of your breath will escape, thus avoiding excessive fogging. To do this, make sure your mask fits snugly around the nose and cheeks. There must be as little play as possible between your face and the mask, the flexible metal reinforcement is there to help you.
Once the mask is properly adjusted, place your corrective glasses over it as usual.
