    The faster you warm your glasses up the less they will fog.

    Before you leave the cooler try sticking them under your armpit (over your clothes so they don't get all greasy from your body oils and deodorant), put them back on and leave the room as quickly as possible.

    You may have a tiny bit of fog, but it will reduce the amount of time you are blinded by it.

    Grow old, have cataracts - have the lens surgically removed and replaced with a new man made lens - no glasses, no fog.
    Its a shame that youth is wasted on the young.

    I've never tried it, but I wonder if the anti-fog stuff made by Rain-X wold work.
    If you have polycarbonate lenses you might read the label first, some of the Rain-X products are bad news for lexan motorcycle windshields.

    I used to have the same problem in the summer. I would ride around in the Ambulance with the air wide open and when I would get out in the heat I would be blind. I found that a good coating of rainx did the trick.
    I recently switched to contacts but I used to get the little rainx cloths and keep them in the truck in case I needed a touch up.
    Hope that helps.

    Tried it and it works. I would worry about what lenses but it works on mine.

    Cat Crap Anti-Fog. Works great. If the name is more than you can handle, try some of the no-fog stuff for dive masks.

    According to my wife’s grandfather, he would come into the house on a cold winters day backwards. Said he never had his glasses fog when he did, but fogged every time if he walked straight in to the house.

    I used to be in and out of coolers all day and haveing my glasses fog was a real pain. I used Rainx on my glass and plastic lens for a couple of years until I retired. Try klear view anti fog too

    Purchased some stuff at the last gun show I went to, expensive little red bottle but it works. Or you can do what the Japanese divers use on their diving masks, Tobacco in a pouch dipped in water, just wet the lens and dry.

    If you want to go old school you can do like my old dive master told me when I forgot no fog for my dive mask. Spit on it, rub it around and then let it sit for a few. Rinse it off and you are good to go. Doesn't last long but it will do in a pinch.
