When warm air hits a cool surface, condensation can form. Just think about how your glasses fog up when you walk into a warm building after being out in the cold. The same thing happens with a mask.
When your warm breath escapes through the top of your mask with straps, it hits the lenses of your glasses and causes them to fog up. Our Strapless N95 with full perimeter adhesive, when applied properly, prevents this from happening!
Below are common recommendations for limiting the fogging of glasses,
none of which our mask requires! We can't make this stuff up!
And please...check out our REAL Testimonials page!
UNTIL NOW: Consider wearing your mask higher on your face and using your glasses to hold the mask in place or weigh it down so air doesn’t escape from the top as you exhale. This is a common method, and the one being employed by our little friend here.
NOW: The Strapless N95 with full perimeter adhesive lets you use your glasses to see, not hold your mask in place!
UNTIL NOW: Before slipping on a face mask, wash your glasses or sunglass lenses with soapy water and shake off the excess moisture. Then, let your glasses air dry or gently dry the lenses with a clean microfiber cloth. As well, shaving cream contains surfactants, which leave behind an invisible but protective filmy coating. Also try vinegar, shampoo or toothpaste.
NOW: The Strapless N95 with full perimeter adhesive knows you have better things to do than wash your glasses and wait for them to air dry!
UNTIL NOW: If you place double-sided tape between the inside of the mask and the bridge of your nose, it will create a better seal. You can also place an additional piece of cellophane or masking tape over the mask as well.
NOW: The Strapless N95 with full perimeter adhesive has improved upon this well beyond the cellophane and masking tape. Cellophane and masking tape on a mask with straps does NOT make an N95!
UNTIL NOW: Look for masks equipped with moldable pieces around the nose (such as a metal strip) or masks that come in various sizes. If the mask is well-fitted, it will dramatically help to prevent the amount of hot air that can reach the lenses. Make sure that your face mask has a snug fit around the nose bridge. The more conformed the mask is around the bridge of your nose, the less of that hot air will end up hitting your lenses. If you’ve crafted your own cloth mask, create a seal around the nose by inserting a moldable item into the upper part of the mask. This could be a paperclip, pipe cleaner, twist tie or a folded piece of aluminum foil.
NOW: The Strapless N95 with full perimeter adhesive offers a secure fit WITHOUT the tight fit!
UNTIL NOW: If your glasses have nose pads, you can tweak the pads so that the frames sit slightly farther from your face. This will allow that hot air to escape instead of getting trapped between your face and the lenses of the glasses. A word of caution...altering the nose pads may slightly change your vision if you wear glasses with progressive lenses or lenses with a strong prescription. If that happens, you might need to hold your head at a different angle to compensate for the vision change.
NOW: The Strapless N95 with full perimeter adhesive helps you avoid damaging your glasses and any associated repair/replacement expenses!
UNTIL NOW: Applying over-the-counter anti-fogging sprays, waxes and gels to your lenses before putting on your glasses can quickly disperse tiny fog droplets when you’re wearing a mask. Some work better with different body chemistry, so you may need to try a few brands to see which one works best for you. Beware using anti-fogging products designed for cars or other purposes, as they might ruin your prescription lenses. Now the bad news...many eyeglasses are now treated with special protective coatings that resist glare and smudges. The problem is that the coatings also may resist anti-fog treatments, including home remedies like soapy water and commercial treatments.
NOW: The Strapless N95 with full perimeter adhesive doesn't just offer a bandaid for the problem, it FIXES the problem!
UNTIL NOW: Well, it might be awkward, but breathing downward can be a quick anti-fog fix. This sends the air away from your glasses. How do you breathe downward? Hold your upper lip over your lower lip. Then blow air downward, as if you’re playing a flute.
NOW: The Strapless N95 with full perimeter adhesive lets you breathe any way you want to!
UNTIL NOW: This won’t fix your foggy-lens problem right away, but you might consider buying lenses with an anti-fog coating. An anti-fog coating gives you a hassle-free answer to foggy lenses, regardless of whether the obstructed vision is triggered by a face mask or something else. Visit an optical shop near you or an online eyewear retailer to learn more about and to compare anti-fog lens options.
NOW: The Strapless N95 with full perimeter adhesive let's you keep your current glasses!
UNTIL NOW: Swimmers and scuba divers have a regular trick to keep glasses from fogging. They spit into their goggles or masks and rub it around. But given that we’re dealing with a respiratory virus and trying to stop the spread of germs, spitting on your glasses is not advised during a pandemic.
NOW: The Strapless N95 with full perimeter adhesive has no comment!
