    Properly fitted shooting glasses do not fog. If you're using your everday glasses try trimming back your eyebrows. If that doesn't work and you need prescription glasses go on the internet and access www.thirtyninedollarglasses.com. They have some models that sit off your cheeks and will not fog up.

    I find that leather not plastic blinders help a lot for preventing fogging on a hot day.

    Caution (personal experience): Use Rain-X in close proximity to your eyes at your own risk. The stuff contains both an acid and a polyvinyl alcohol and will cause eyes to burn and really get your attention!

    Suggestion: Try Dawn dish soap. Put a small drop on each lens and polish until it's gone. What remains after the water carrier evaporates will be able to absorb a small amount of moisture rather than allowing it to condense on the lenses.

    optomerists have an anti fogging eye glass cleaner. I have use in dead of winter and they will not fog if you apply weekly.

    Allow enough air to circulate around the lens and you won't have fogging problems.

    They used to be some stuff called "Sea Drops", I believe, that a lot of the recreational softball/baseball players would use. They all swore by the stuff.

    I've never had a problem with my Decot Internationals fogging, so I've never needed anything.

    Try a scuba shop and get some of their stuff that we use on our masks. Works great and comes in a convenient bottle.

    Punch some holes in your blinders or take then off your glasses.

    Hi there,
    Yes, what an annoying problem. I've found that goggle-style glasses are crap. You need some that have nose pieces that can be pinched together to get the lenses as far from your face as possible. This will also make the lenses ride higher which is a good thing anyway, b/c when you get down on the stock, you'll be looking thru the middle part of the lens with no distortion. These are hard to find. I found some Remington glasses on ebay that have been a God-send. They came in a grey case with yellow, amber, and vermillion lenses. Good luck. -powderburn

    Nothing better.

    I sweat like a big dog out on the trap line in our blistering NV desert and when chasing quail in the early season, Decot HyWydes are the only thing that works for me. Lenses away from the face plus plenty of ventilation.

    I don't use side shields for this reason but recently a friend came up with a great modification to an ordinary ball cap that provides blinders with good ventilation. Just cut the bill off an old hat then half it and glue the resulting tabs to the edges of the bill on your shooting hat such that they hang down on the sides of the eyes.

    How about laying a big hocker on each lens, but then again, I'm a "spitter".

    regards all,
