Why Do Eyeglasses Get Cloudy?
So many of us rely on prescription eyeglasses to see properly and function throughout our day-to-day lives. But for those of us who wear glasses regularly, we all can relate to the occasional annoyance of cloudy lenses.
Have you ever wondered why this happens? Our optometry and optical team here in Jensen Beach, FL offer literally thousands of frames and lenses to choose from. Believe us: we've seen plenty of people confronted by this minor yet inconvenient little issue.
The Science behind Your Foggy Glasses
If you've worn eyeglasses or sunglasses in cold weather, they've probably steamed up from time to time (especially if you walk indoors where it's heated). This happens because your cold lenses can actually cool down warm vaporized water (present in both breath and forehead sweat) and transform it into a liquid state. This is what leads to the appearance of foggy condensation on your glasses.
So, what to do when suddenly it looks like you're trying to peer through a hazy mist? Consider these three tips from our optical team:
- Avoid putting your glasses up on your forehead.
- Be sure you are exhaling away from your lenses.
- Remember not to touch or rub your lenses with your fingers or anything other than a cloth that is specifically intended for eyeglasses cleansing. Otherwise, you may end up scratching or damaging your glasses.
Of course, fogging of your lenses will go away on its own in time. Ultimately, the best tip may just be to have some patience and keep your eyeglasses cleansing supplies nearby!
