Default Fogging eyeglasses...

Need to figure something out because my sight is getting bad enough to where I can't see very good without my glasses-and of course the glasses fog up immediately. What are other people doing in this situation??

Check out No Fog face mask. Used it on very cold sunny days for sun glasses. Works extremely well. If you want to spend some money try CKX Tranz 1.5 AMS helmet. Rubber breath guard along with the air management system carry all your breath out the back of the helmet. Had mine out on a couple of -30c days. No fogging whatsoever. Keep in mind this is a cold weather helmet. Breath guard does not seem removable. $400.00 Canadian.

Contacts is a good option.
Prescription goggles
Ski Doo BV2S Helmet/ Oxygen

Get a good helmet with breath deflector and try to breath through your nose.

I eventually popped for lasik but for many years several of us used Pro-vue goggles. Randy lived right up the hill on the east side of Lake Zumbro but I see he has a storefront listed now.

I have tried everything short of a BVS2 helmet. I have worn glasses forever. I can't wear contacts. No Fog mask is the ticket along with a heated shield. You have to get your breath out from the helmet. I keep my helmet shield cracked open. I use a modular, and at every stop I open the whole face. If I have time, I put my glasses inside my jacket pocket. Also keep the helmet vents open. All humidity must be out of the helmet.

Having same issue with glasses fogging up with New helmet last weekend while riding. YouTube IT and a lot of people claim that dawn dish soap does the trick. Wipe It on let dry for 20 minutes and buff cleen. Half to give it a try.

You can do two things that are guaranteed to work. First one is to get a BV2S helmet and adjust it properly...you will never have fog on the inner visor or your glasses.
Second is to get laser eye surgery and lose the glasses altogether.
I did both and haven’t looked back!

( to glasses)

Goggles, motocross helmet and a real balaclava. Nothing works better....assuming you keep the glasses and don't just get prescription goggles which is one step better
