How to prevent spectacles from fogging up

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 spectacles at the same time can lead to a problem; foggy lenses. So, what can you do about it?

Why do spectacles fog up?

It is the combination of body heat and airflow that can lead to your spectacles 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 prevent spectacles from fogging up

There are some simple steps you can take to avoid your spectacles 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 spectacles, 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. Invest in an anti-fog lens solution, at Lunettes we offer both anti-fog wipes or anti-fog spraps. A highly effective way to prevent fog when you need it most. Buy Anti-Fog wipes here on our Shopsite
  4. One of the most effective and long-lasting solutions to prevent your glasses fogging up is to invest in an anti-fog lens coating, ask in store for details.
