Glasses and Face Masks

Fogging of Eyewear

The warm air of your breathing escapes from the top of your mask and lands on the cooler surface of your lenses. 

 

How to Prevent It:

1. Fit your mask to your face

2. Wipe/Clean your lenses

3. Adjust your glasses

Hopefully this helps a bit. Please keep wearing safety glasses as well!
