Covid-19 pandemic made face masks mandatory for all. It has become as important as mobile phones and money, without which, we hesitate to step out. However, for those who wear spectacles, the face covering is difficult to use as it ends up fogging their eyewear. Given the importance of wearing protective masks in public, many people with spectacles wear it despite facing difficulties. Glasses fog up due to condensation when water vapours get deposited on them. It can happen due to humidity, sweat or breath.
When a person wearing spectacles breathes out while wearing a face mask, the hot air falls on the cool surface of the glasses and forms a layer of moisture. This prevents the person from seeing clearly. Luckily, there are several hacks that can help you see and be protected from the coronavirus at the same time. Here are some of the tricks:
There are special kinds of sprays available to avoid fogging of the glasses. These anti-fog spray when sprayed on spectacles and wiped, prevent the eyewear from getting fogged when wearing a face mask.
Try to wear masks that fit your face perfectly, especially around the nose. If the face mask rests perfectly on the nose, then the air you breathe out will not be able to escape and thus your glasses will not get fogged.
This DIY solution to the problem of glass fogging has become a hit. Those wearing face masks can simply drop a drop of liquid soap on the glasses and wipe it properly with a piece of cloth. Do check to noteif you can see clearly from the eyewear. A transparent layer of soap on the glasses prevents it from getting fogged.
Taping Face Masks
This is also considered one of the most effective ways to keep your mask in place and avoid fogging. You can use a medical tape to stick your mask to the nose. When this happens, air will not escape to the glasses and your vision will not get compromised.
