Foggy Glasses

Dan Misener reports on how to keep your glasses from fogging up. I haven’t tried this yet, but if it works it will be a tremendous improvement to my daily routine: every weekday morning I walk into some coffee shop or another and spend the first 5 minutes virutally blind from the sudden fog-up of my glasses due to the near-tropical conditions maintained in said shops (it’s the radiant heat from all those muffins, I suppose).

I came to glasses-wearing relatively late in life, and I still don’t actually consider myself a bona fide glasses wearer (even though I can no longer function without them). So tips like this, which perhaps those that wore glasses from childhood figured out, are very helpful to me.

I’ve always wanted to wear glasses.

You can also use the old bathroom mirror trick of coating a thin layer of regular hand soap on the lenses. Let it dry, and polish with a towel.
Personally, I recommend contacts. I have new bi-focal toric ones that are pricey, but very convenient for we presbyopic astigmatics.
