In the state of New York, anyone over the age of two who can tolerate a facial covering must wear a mask when in a public space where social distancing is not possible. This simple act has had a measurable impact on slowing the spread of COVID-19.
Wearing a mask can help save lives, but if you have glasses, a facemask can pose fogging issues that can be both limiting and frustrating. While annoying for even occasional mask users, men and women required to wear a mask all day due to their work face even bigger challenges.
Of course, you can take steps to prevent glasses from fogging. There are at-home options along with sprays and wipes that can be purchased for this purpose. These work to varying degrees and have to be reapplied frequently, but they offer an inexpensive and easy solution for glasses fogging. For some, there is the option of switching to contact lenses as well, though these come with additional concerns such as maintenance.
What can you do if none of these options are attractive to you? Is there a way to avoid foggy glasses forever?
LASIK is a viable option for many women and men who are unhappy about constantly fogged glasses. With this procedure, the retina is reshaped, permanently correcting refractive errors and allowing for a life free of prescription eyewear.
Around 90% of LASIK recipients end up with 20/20 vision or better – and a full 95% claim they would have the procedure again. Reliable, effective, and safe, LASIK can reduce or eliminate your reliance on glasses and, along with it, the issues of glasses fogging up.
