I have 4 !!! different safety glasses, all of them sweat/fog up like crazy and make me blind and unable to see anything as soon as I start doing something, some of them were very cheap,some of them expensive, but all fog up.. Doing any kind of work/fixing car is just impossible with them as they just turn in a hazard, I have tried the dishwashing liquid method – It isn’t any good.. works for a few minutes before it just makes me blind as well+ makes the glasses dirty. The only thing I have found which doesnt Fogs up is a full face-shield , however not always it’s practical + It’s a very large clunker.

Has anyone got a pair which doesn’t do this or it’s just impossible?
I have some bolle glasses which had a description of – Anti Fog & Anti Scratch—They are one of the worst ever,they fog up like crazy+ They are scratched to death already, So That was a fail and only a total gimmick!
Has anyone fixed this problem, found something which doesn’t fogs up? Or an actual effective solution which actually helps for more than a few minutes?

Sorry, can’t help with the glasses, but perhaps this is is a good time for your foray into unplugged hand tool woodworking … no safety glasses needed.

I wonder why you have such a problem with fogging? Do you work in a very cold environment? Are you running or moving around to the point where you are constantly sweating?

I think the fogging occurs when there is a great enough temperature differential between warm air close to your face and the lens and the air outside the lens. Maybe if you move the glasses a little further from your face? If you can isolate the air inside the glasses from the outside that may reduce or eliminate fogging. You might benefit from goggle style rather than a glasses style?

Just a thought.

Do you live near a Scuba Diving shop? They sell an antifogging solution for the inside if a diving mask.

Apply bar soap to the glasses and buff off. Works for me. Works on shower room mirrors, too.

This is most likely the cause of the fog up. It’s the change in temp between the glasses and the air between them and your face. Moving them away from your face will help alleviate the problem, but then you run into issues with objects being able to get underneath them to your eyes.

Try Cat Crap antifog we use it at the nuke plant. Scuba, just spit in the mask; not a hawker just saliva!
