foggy sunglasses
Does anyone have a solution to keep sunglasses from fogging up?

OAKLEY has a variety of sun glasses...their M Frame model comes with "vented" lens as an option which are small "cut-outs" along the top of the replaceable lens which help to prevent or minimize fogging.

check out their website...locate the M Frame, then M Frame accesories.
They may also have other models more suited to your taste...give them a call!

Good Luck!

I haven't had glasses for up but when I used to scuba dive we spit on the inside of the mask and then rinsed it out. Not wiped out of off, just rinsed out. Mask never fogged up.

Rudy makes a line of glasses called the Rudy Kerosene. They were designed for bicycle and downhill racers and have a vent on each side that can be left open. They also take an RX clip in (which I have to use). The lenses are available in many colors (of which I have 6) but once I found the "Racing Red" I found I don't need anthing else but the clear for night and yellow to brighten up darkly overcast days (most of us are doing our eyes a disservice by using the fog yellow all the time, fatigues the eyes in bright light and enhances light when you have to look toward the sun). The lenses have a lifetime scratch/breakage replacement warranty and the glasses are safety rated so basically once you get them you won't need anything else.
I've found them to work and protect extremely well. One of the reasons I tried them initially was due to my other glasses fogging up and I've never had that problem with these.
Hope that helps.

When I lived in the more humid climes of Arkansas, I used to smear shaving cream on my glasses, then wipe it off with a towel (don't rinse) to keep them from fogging. I worked well, even when playing night games on very humid nights.

When I have a fog issue, I have found it is a combination of the weather/temp and the heat rising off my forehead and trapping under the bill of my cap. On fog issue nights, I turn my hat around or don't wear it at all. That usually solves the problem. I have tried every anti-fog stuff I could find and nothing has relly worked. I think I will try the shaving cream idea next game.

Go to your local Hunting supply store and get a jar of paste that eliminates fog from high powered rifle scopes. Ask at the counter.

I'm kind of confused by some of the advice. Wearing sunglasses during night games?
Wearing your ball cap backwards to stop your glasses from steaming? Isn't the bill of the cap essential in blocking the sun from getting in your eyes?

Jetboy - unless you're trying to stir the pot this is what I said in my post. The glasses that I use have interchangeable lenses so for night games I switch to those (clear) and foggy days to yellow - obviously away from the Racing Red darkened lense. I prefer these as they are also a safety precaution (protection) to the titanium ones I had used before which were light but did also have a fogging problem. What good are titanium glasses that preserve the glasses by giving: the next thing to give is the eye socket and nose. I'd rather have the protection with the clear lenses..
