Foggy glasses when wearing a mask

I have an appointment with my ophthalmologist today. Last time I was there, I had to read the eye chart with my glasses and mask on. My glasses fogged up, so this task was difficult to achieve.

I just learned to use a tissue inside your mask, at the top, to prevent fogging. I'm going to try it and see how things go.

Years ago, I had anti-fogging spray that I used on my lenses. Perhaps I should get something similar again.


  1. That's a good idea. I also read that if you have wire or similar to fit the nose more snugly you avoid the fog.

    I was told by my optometrist that anti-fogging spray doesn't work with some of the coatings on modern lenses, so I haven't tried it in years.


    1. I'm thinking that it depends on the mask. The mask that I had on did have a wire, but it doesn't seem to provide a snug fit at all. The tissue helped a lot! Perhaps I need a better mask.

      Thanks for sharing that tidbit about anti-fogging spray and that it doesn't work for all lenses. I last used it when I was in undergrad, which feels like ages!
