Why eyewear mists up when wearing a mask and how to stop it

If you’re now regularly wearing a mask on your face you’ll have noticed that your sunglasses, spectacles or medical goggles are prone to misting up. This is because the mask directs your breath upwards instead of in front of you, which is good for preventing disease transmission but a nuisance as it interferes with your vision. Sports eyewear that’s close fitting is also prone to mist up and for that reason we have Evolution branded anti-fog products. The one shown is made for us by an Italian company and it’s the most effective anti-fog product we’ve tested (and we’ve tested many!). You’ll find it in our accessories section.
