Top tips for fitting your face mask with glasses

With the new government mandate to wear a face mask when you are in a shopping centre, glasses wearers now face the new challenge of experiencing constant foggy vision.

We know wearing a mask can be harder for glasses wearers and it gets steamy very quickly and glasses may tend to slip. While this can be frustrating, here are some useful tips to get you by.

1. Pull your mask up your nose and rest your glasses on top

The reason why your glasses keep fogging up is because your breath is escaping out the top of your mask. If you can seal the top of the mask with the weight of your specs, you may find it much easier.

2. Stick your mask on your nose and cheeks with some surgical tape

If the weight of your glasses doesn’t do the trick, you can always use some surgical tape to adhere your mask to your nose and cheeks. You can find suitable tape at the pharmacy.

3. Adjust your mask ties

Is your mask tight and snug? Adjusting the nose bar or mask ties can make a real difference. The tighter the better to stop your breath coming out.

4. Use contact lenses

If you’re fed up and can’t seem to get the hang of wearing a mask with your glasses, contacts could be the way to go. They are steam free and comfortable and at Specsavers, we offer a free contact lens trial for people new to contact lenses.
