Has anyone found an anti-fog product (or home remedy) that actually works (and doesn't dissolve lenses subject to it)? Tis the season for misty mornings...

Not an easy thing for people with corrective lenses. It isn't much easier for us 20/20 mutants, but it is easier for us to go without glasses.

There is a wax-based product called, of all things, "Cat Crap". It hasn't done anything bad to any of my Oakley lenses. It works okay, but you need to have a lens cleaning cloth devoted specifically to it because otherwise you can smudge your glasses with left-over cat crap at times when you may not want it. It certainly isn't a miracle fix for fogging. It kinda helps in some conditions.

Gross as it sounds, I usually use one of the most versatile substances on earth to prevent fogging... human saliva. That works pretty well, but you need to re-apply fairly often. I keep a clean lens cloth handy. When I get fog, take the glasses off, apply the miracle solvent, wipe them and then continue. It works better than just wiping the lenses alone.

Last comment relates more to fall/winter riding than the moist riding this time of year. When the condensation comes from the difference in temperature between my face and the outside ambient. When I get to a slow-speed riding section or stop light, I slide the glasses down my nose so they're further from my face and getting more ventilation. That helps prevent fogging.

Sorry I don't have better solutions. Hopefully these help a little.

Often it so happens during our journeys and also while we swim and ski, our glasses for vision get covered with fog. This makes it difficult to have an error free experience of the entire hobby. For the same purpose an anti fog solution has been created which keeps the glasses clear and fog free. more details on: c-clearantifog.com
