Can you avoid Lens Fog from masks?

Posted by Sue Fisher on

Here’s hoping that with Spring around the corner and the end of Winter within sight, your glasses and/or sunglasses won’t be as subject to Lens Fog as it gets warmer outside.

Saw this little feature in the NY Times this week and sharing so others might find it handy too.

The main take-away:
“Find a well-fitting mask, ideally with an adjustable nose-bridge wire, to reduce how much exhaled breath reaches your glasses. (This won’t always be enough; even the best-fitting masks may leave space for airflow.)”

Since face masks funnel warm air toward your eyes - lens fog - produced by the temperature variation between your breath and the surrounding air of course annoys people who wear glasses.

At, we offer our masks in three layers or two layers, with or without a nose wires and they all have adjustable elastics and we are pleased to offer a tremendous array of fabric styles to choose from. Thanks for visiting our site and have a look at the original NY Times feature:



As two formidable Toronto women, we started our small business by hand-sewing all the masks that we sell.  We cut four pieces of cotton for every mask and sew them all together to make a smartly tailored, handmade cotton face mask.  We take comfort and fit very seriously.  You can adjust your mask to your unique face and head size to achieve a comfortable fit, with no gaps. We are careful to select all-natural, tightly woven quilters' cottons in all our masks, and we wash and tumble dry before hand-sewing each mask.  We have over 100 styles to choose from, and adding more each week.  We are proud to operate an ethical business and having a positive impact on the environment.  You can feel good knowing that each mask is sewn by hand right here in Canada.
