How Do I Stop My Glasses From Steaming Up?

Nothing is more annoying than your glasses steaming up at the wrong time. Whether that’s wearing a face mask, cooking in the kitchen to playing high adrenaline sports, there’s never a good time to be steamed up!


Why do glasses steam up?

So, as science explains, condensation occurs on your lenses when water vapour from sweat, breath and different humidity lands on a cold surface, cools, then this changes into tiny liquid drops. Lenses are often cool causing this reaction to take place. It’s this fog that blocks your vision and causes the process of glasses needing wiping so you can see again.

Nowadays, you don’t need to keep wiping your glasses or use a special anti-fog cloth or even have anti-fog glasses cleaner spray. That’s just not practical. Getting more airflow around the lenses will reduce the fogging, but again it’s not that simple. Frames can sit too close to your face, so sometimes a slight adjustment can make all the difference.

If you are thinking about purchasing new glasses, think about a different lens solution first.


Anti-fog Lenses by Lensology

Anti-fog coatings can be applied to single vision and varifocal lenses. This type of coating is applied to the lenses before they are cut to fit into your frame in an optical lab. Dust, dirt, and scratches give condensation more to cling to, so again anti-scratch lenses are a good choice.

Here at Lensology, our optical lab has developed leading anti-fog lenses that can be applied to your favourite frames.

Our specially developed lenses:

  • Anti-Fog and steam
  • 1.59 Index Polycarbonate (Thin)

Fogged up lenses can last for a long time resulting in blurred vision, but with our new lenses, this is a thing of the past. We highly recommend you swap your lenses to an anti-fog solution.
