  • Cold mornings & fogged up specs!

    Now the colder weather's here I have a problem with my specs fogging up when Iï؟½m stationary. I fitted a pinlock anti-fog thingy to my visor which solved the foggy visor problem.. Somebody at work suggested rain-x, I havenï؟½t tried it yet, just wonder if anyone has any other suggestions?

    Flip your visor up as you slow down to stop, letting the warm air out. Works for me. May not work if you have something warm wrapped around your mouth that pushes your breath straight up under the glasses..
    Come back Jeremy, it was only a joke.

        Or try an anti fog mask. They were really popular in England, not sure about here, but you can source them online.

        or try ebay.

          Hi Jezzabelle
          Have had a few people come in last year ruining a perfectly good pair of specs using anti-fog treatments suitable for visors but not a multicoated spec lens. I get around this and most people do with the previous suggestion of just clicking the visor up one notch to let the warm air out. Contacts are another option and are really a person-by-person thing but could be worth a shot if you haven't been there before. I also fit another lens system called ortho-k which allows you to wear a retainer contact lens overnight so you can see clearly through the day without specs or contacts. Hope that helps.

              I know you can get prescription mx goggles
              Would be cool to see the same in visors

                I have always been curious about the Ortho-K system but don't really know much about it or how much it costs. Is there anything that you can tell me about it?

                  Toothpaste inside the visor. In all seriousness, i use toothpastes whenever i go paintballing on the visors. doesn't fog up at all. Don't believe me? Notice your bathroom mirror fog's up from your hot shower / water from shaving etc??? try some toothpaste on it. should stop whenever you've applied it.

                    The Mase is on the ball.

                    I use toothpaste when snorkelling on my mask rubbers and lens. You can also get commercially available sprays for it as well. Pretty much what it does it clean that thin layer of "stuff" (oils, dirts etc) that collects on the lens and the moisture adheres to.

                    The other option is to spit on it (like you do with snorkel masks when you forget the toothpaste).

                      they're not talking about the visor.

                        Toothpaste is a fine abrasive, and not good for the coatings on glasses.

                          Tooth paste is used to clean the film of dive masks when new
                          to stop fogging i use spit or anti fog
                          not sure that either will work on glasses but you can try

                            Bit of a derp moment there myself actually. Good point.

                            Go find the anti-fog spray instead. I'm sure optometrists would stock it.
