How to wear a face mask with glasses


Open today 8:30am to 5:30pm

With face masks progressively becoming the norm, how exactly can you wear a mask with glasses!?

Here are four top tips so that you can wear a face mask comfortably with glasses: 


  1. Pull your mask up your nose and rest your glasses on top

The reason why your glasses keep fogging up is because your breath is escaping out the top of your mask. If you can seal the top of the mask with the weight of your specs, you may find it much easier.


  1. Stick your mask on your nose and cheeks with some surgical tape 

If the weight of your glasses doesn’t do the trick, you can always use some surgical tape to adhere your mask to your nose and cheeks. You can find suitable tape at the pharmacy.


  1. Adjust your mask ties

Is your mask tight and snug? Adjusting the nose bar or mask ties can make a real difference. The tighter the better to stop your breath coming out.


  1. Use contact lenses

If you’re fed up and can’t seem to get the hang of wearing a mask with your glasses, contacts could be the way to go. They are steam free and comfortable and at Specsavers, we offer a free contact lens trial for people new to contact lenses.
