Here are some tips for dealing with fogged lenses when wearing a mask with eyeglasses
My earlier forum responses in-thread to this challenge might've sat better here, but I'm puzzled by the caveats mentioned in that external tips-list, namely, that specialist anti-scratch /anti-glare etc coatings will prevent the effective application of aftermarket DIY anti-fogging / 'anti-dim' treatments.....

Those already-added costly coatings paid for on eyeglasses/spectacles are applied to the outer convex surface of the lenses: my (and others') anti-dim fog-fix is being applied to the inner concave opposite side of the lens (as in heads vs tails).

So why's the professional coating being cited as a probable nullifier for this interventional approach? <puzzled>
