St. Louis, Missouri -

Brinton Vision, based in St. Louis, Missouri, has announced that their founder Dr. Jason Brinton, MD, an ophthalmologist and LASIK specialist, has been featured in Good Housekeeping magazine. The author of the article reached out to Dr. Brinton and discussed how to avoid foggy glasses when wearing a face mask. Glasses fog when wearing a facemask because warm exhaled air escapes through the upper part of the mask against the cheeks. When the warm breath reaches the cooler lenses of the glasses, this results into condensation and the fogging with which we are all familiar. The article offers a number of suggestions on how to prevent warm exhaled air from reaching the eyeglasses, causing them to fog.

One of the ways to prevent fogging of eyeglasses while wearing a face mask is to improve the fit of the mask. Medical masks usually have a bendable metal strip that permits people to mold the mask to their nose and cheeks. This can also be done with a homemade mask by sewing a twist tie or pipe cleaner into the top of the mask. It may also be a good idea to adjust the mask’s earloops or straps in such a way that the mask will fit more snugly against the cheeks. If this is done properly, more of the breath will exit through the bottom or sides of the mask.

Another technique to avoid fogged glasses when wearing a face mask is to tape the mask across the bridge of the nose and across the cheeks. Any type of tape may be used, whether it is adhesive, athletic, or medical, just as long as it is not duct tape or a tape that is tightly adhesive or irritating. It can be valuable to first test the tape on skin elsewhere on the body so as to not irritate the delicate skin of the cheeks with overly powerful adhesive.

Another way is to simply pull the mask higher on the face and then use the weight of the glasses on top of the mask to block airflow at the top of the mask. This technique may only work, however, for those who wear eyeglasses with large, thick frames.

Finally, a commercial anti-fog spray or wipe may be applied on the lens of the eyeglasses. These sprays can be highly effective, however they can also be highly expensive.Dr. Brintonwarns that these commercial solutions may not work as well on lenses with certain coatings, such as anti-fingerprint, anti-glare, or anti-smudge coatings.

Brinton Vision is one of a handful of practices in the USA that utilizes seven state-of-the-art technologies to assess and map every aspect of the eyes. These tests are for checking overall eye health and to determine candidacy for LASIK or any of its six modern variations: SMILE laser eye surgery, Visian ICL, Kamra Inlay, PRKsurgery, Refractive Lens Exchange(RLE), and Light Adjustable Lens (LAL).

These tests are done as part of the Brinton Vision Ocular Analysis (BVOA), which lasts for 90 minutes. These tests are touch-free, and no pain is experienced as the tests are performed. As part of their BVOA, each patient gets to meet one of the vision correction specialty doctors at Brinton Vision. The doctor and patient review all results together and discuss whether LASIK can help the patient. Every eye is unique, which means that there is no one-size-fits-all solution. For those who are found to be a good candidate, the doctor will go over any procedures for which the patient qualifies.

Brinton Vision is a state-of-the-art LASIK and laser eye surgery center located in St. Louis, Missouri. The practice is dedicated to one goal–changing lives through the priceless gift of sight. Brinton Vision is the only full-time vision correction and eye surgery center in the state of Missouri specializing in LASIK plus all six of its modern variations: SBK, PRK, SMILE, Visian ICL (implantable contact lens), KAMRA® Inlay, and refractive lens exchange (RLE).
