Foggy lenses can be a frustrating problem if you need to wear glasses and a face covering at the same time.
To help limit the spread of COVID-19, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is recommending people wear cloth face coverings when in public settings, such as the grocery story or pharmacy, where social distancing measures are difficult to maintain.
For the estimated 164 million American adults who wear eyeglasses, the recommendation can lead to foggy spectacles when trying to navigate the grocery store and other places.
“Foggy glasses can be more than just an annoyance, they can become a safety concern,” says Dr. Gerald Harmon, vice president of medical affairs and a family medicine physician at Tidelands Health. “It’s important people can see where they’re going to avoid hazards.”
