Default Anti-fog glasses?

For years my eyes worked as dust-magnets :P, a couple of times I had to go to the optometrist to remove some dust particles, not cool.

Yesterday I bought these Steelpro workshop glasses that are supposedly anti-fog.. however, they are not.

After ~2 mins of use the fog appeared instantly, producing a very annoying and dangerous blurry vision.

What brand of glasses do you use?, any advice?, since these were labeled as anti-fog I can't trust what brands say anymore..

Thanks!.

I gave up on glasses as I have issues with sweating and it doesn't matter what I use as they fog up . I have heard of coating the inside of the lens with a thin film of soap helping somewhat .

I use a hard hat that has a flip down shield and ear muffs . Kinda takes care of 3 safety issues at once.
Here's a pic with it sitting on top of my TS . I'm probably the only one here that does this


I donít always insulate , but when I do .
Ok ,I never insulate

Come to think of it there is one other option , ski googles . Ski googles have two layers of plastic so they don't fog up as easily . Just a thought

I have a Serpentine tool from Canadian Tire that I have to use a face shield like that Rick and a pair of safety glasses.

There are anti fog solutions you can buy that are supposed to help. I would try one of those first Artemix.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Yeah, I will try a model I've heard somewhere that works, it's a 3M one.

I realize that what I wrote can be taken in more than one way. I meant a liquid spray-on solution. I don't know if that is what you meant. Maybe other members have tried them and can tell us if they work.

I have to use a powered respirator to keep the glasses from fogging up in our high humidity

I use the same one Doug - it works really well, and makes for a cool, dust-free breathing environment - well worth the trouble of wearing it.
Over the top? only in the sense that it goes over the top of your head!
