2/3rds of people wear corrective of lenses, healthcare workers who wear glasses, have a few hacks to fix this annoying problem of when you exhale your breath flows up and fogs your glasses. So what is the bespectacled population to do?
- Mold your mask – medical masks have built in, bendable strips of metal that you can mold to the bridge of your nose.
- Tighten the mask – adjust the ties or the ear loop so that the mask fits snugly against your face.
- Tape your mask- Another option is to use white athletic or medical tape or even an adhesive bandage to seal the top of the mask.
- Pull up your mask – use the weight of your glasses to block the air. Pull the mask up over the bridge of your nose and let your glasses rest on top of the mask.
- Try soapy water- wash your glasses with soapy water, some recommend using shaving cream and let them air dry. The soapy water leaves behind a film that stops the water molecules from forming droplets.
- Use tissue paper fold tissue paper horizontally and insert it between the top of your mask and your face.
- Anti-fog spray- this is used by competitive swimmers and skiers they use similar sprays to prevent foggy goggles, but be cautious this is a chemical, before putting it near your eyes. Read all instructions before using.
- Having polycarbonate lenses- polycarbonate lenses demists faster than glass lenses.
