How to Stop Your Glasses from Fogging Up

One of the most unpleasant aspects of wearing glasses during the winter months is having to deal with your glasses fogging up while traveling from warm to cold places and vice versa, or when wearing a mask.

This can also be an issue for cooks or kitchen staff who work in hot and humid conditions, or for bikers or runners who engage in strenuous activity.


There are regular fog wipes, and then there is FogBlocker. Compared to most common anti-fog products, FogBlocker is a convenient and effective anti-fogging treatment. We’ve found this to be the most effective compared to any other products on the market!

A single FogBlocker dry wipe provides anti-fog protection for up to 24 hours, and can be reused well over 500 times. This ultrafine microfiber cloth is safe to use on any lens, including coated lenses, so long as you follow the instructions. You can also use it on all of your personal protective equipment, such as plastic guards and goggles. You can get FogBlocker in-store at Lumos Vision Care.

Coatings on Lenses:

While there isn’t a ‘perfect coating’ that exists to prevent fogging, having premium coatings to reduce the amount of oils, dirt, and glare on your lenses can definitely help to provide a clear window into the world!

Pick out frames that are set back from your face

The lack of circulation in extremely hot or cold environments is the primary cause of glasses fogging up. If you want to improve the air circulation around your lenses to reduce fogging, then pick a frame that doesn’t sit too close to your face. Considerations like this are important in selecting a frame that suits you best. At Lumos Vision Care, we carry a wide selection of frames of different sizes, shapes, and styles to suit any face shape.
