Hey Tulsa, tired of looking through fog while trying to find your favorite chips at the grocery store? Check out One Vision’s tips and tricks on avoiding foggy glasses while wearing a mask.
Seal Your Mask to Stop Foggy Glasses:
As you shop around Tulsa and Broken Arrow for your essentials, you’ll find yourself exhaling into your mask, which leads your breath straight up to the lenses of your glasses. To avoid this, try using masks with moldable ridges, such as bendable metal wires that contour to your nose. Or, if you prefer fabric or cloth masks, simply place a strip of double-sided tape between the mask and your nose. These methods can help prevent hot air from making it to your glasses and blocking your vision.
Adjust Your Glasses Nose Pads:
Providing more space between your glasses and face allows more air to escape, leaving less of it to gather on your lenses. Try adjusting your glasses’ nose pads to sit further back from the frames, thus allowing them to sit further from your eyes. It is not a problem if you don’t feel comfortable adjusting your nose pads. You’re always welcome to stop by One Vision Broken Arrow , where any of our trained opticians will be happy to help you. We’ll be glad to help the Tulsa area stay healthy (and stay seeing)!
Play the Flute to Prevent Fog:
Not literally, of course. It may sound simple, but directing your airflow downward with your mouth (as if playing the flute) can help reduce fog on your glasses significantly. While this method may take some getting used to, a bit of awkwardness beats looking through foggy lenses and not being able to see the game all night. Plus, if you don’t know how to play the flute, we’ve got plenty of excellent high school bands in the Tulsa, Broken Arrow, Jenks, Bixby, Catoosa, Coweta, and other surrounding areas that we’re sure would be happy to provide pointers.
Another Tip is to Wash and Air Dry:
Washing your glasses using unscented dish soap then letting air dry can help. The dish soap creates a layer that is harder for the fog to stick to your glasses. The water can be room temperature because extremely hot water can mess up the lenses. Make sure when you clean them after they air dry to use a microfiber cloth. If you don’t have a microfiber cloth then come by our Broken Arrow vision clinic. Oh and by the way the cloths are free!
So Broken Arrow, we hope these tips help you out. Whether you’re trying to see the calorie count on some Golden Oreos or simply trying to maintain eye contact with your spouse over dinner, this list should help you prevent foggy lenses that make wearing your glasses with your mask unbearable.
