    Ways to avoid dangerous foggy conditions


    (Family Features) When the cold of winter settles in, it can bring a wide range of problems – especially for individuals who wear glasses.


    Having a prescription that addresses vision issues is critical, but equally important are the glasses you wear to correct those problems. Without properly considering how certain lenses will perform as you go about your daily activities, you may encounter new vision challenges that are bothersome and sometimes even hazardous.


    Activities as ordinary as entering warm to cold environments or simply experiencing the winter weather outside can fog up your lenses. Foggy glasses are more than a simple annoyance – they cause temporary blindness and can lead to truly dangerous situations.


    Other conditions

    Beyond the exposure to cool winter temperatures, there are many other everyday situations during which fog can be annoying or even dangerous, such as:


    • Walking or running outdoors
    • Getting out of the shower or bath
    • Preparing food over the stove
    • Walking down the stairs
    • Playing sports or exercising


    Keep your lenses free of fog

    You don’t have to avoid your daily activities to fend off fog from your lenses. Here are three ways to minimize or avoid the fog this winter:


    • Dress less. While outdoors, be careful not to overdress. Wearing too many layers of clothing can cause your body to overheat and sweat more, creating fog on your lenses as your body heat rises.


    • Talk to your eye doctor. Ask about lenses specially designed to protect against fog, such as Optifog lenses, which have patented fog repellant properties on both the front and back side of the lens. Simply cleaning Optifog lenses with the Optifog Activator Cloth provides long-lasting protection against fog.


    • Wear a headband. When involved in physical activity, condensation can build up on your lenses. Wear a headband to absorb any sweat produced by your body to potentially help reduce fog.


    The problem of fog can be minimized or even eliminated by choosing lenses that are specially designed to correct common problems and can help your vision regardless of the season. Learn more about how to protect your eyes and eyewear from fog and other annoyances at optifogusa.com.
