foggy glasses solution

Optic Topic by Steven A. Queenan at Regional Eye Optical – Week of April 11, 2021

If you have ever gotten into your car on a cold day, you might have experienced the annoyance of having your glasses fog up. Instead of constantly having to wipe your eyeglass lenses until your vehicle’s defroster and heater get the cabin up to room temperature, there is a way to keep your lenses fog-free.

At least one manufacturer of eyeglass lens coating makes a factory-applied coating that eliminates condensation on lenses. This lens coating may also keep your lenses from fogging up during sports and other times when you are hot and perspiring. The fog-free coating can be applied to plastic, polycarbonate, and other eyeglass lenses, including high-index lenses and photochromic lenses.

Lens fogging is caused by condensation that collects on the surface of eyeglass lenses when the lenses are significantly cooler than the surrounding air temperature.
