    Help me out guys/gals!!Since all my surgeries has left me a bunch weaker I quickly start breaking into a steamy state from the stress of standing in the heat and my heart racing and it makes my Poly carbonate plastic non-script lens of my Decots quickly steam up..even after using anti steam stuff bought from the optical store...Has anyone with a similiar problem found a real super duty long lasting product that works great for them???..I had someone recommend plastic polish like they use on foggy weathered headlight lenses but i think that would be way too abrasive not to mention I don't like the idea of those kind of chemicals near my eyes...wanting to attempt my league for the first time in 5 yrs Thanx! Cal

    The most effective anti-fog is air space between your head and the lenses all around. Failing that...

    "Cat Crap" from CampMor.com

    Get the pump bottle, the stuff in the little tubs will freeze in your bag when it's cold and melt when it's hot.<center>

    Only glasses I had fogging problems with was Oakley Radars. Never did find a good solution after trying all sorts of anti-fogging solutions. Ended up switching to Pillas, haven't had a problem since. Never had a problem w/ Rangers or Decots either, so I guess its all in how the frame fits your face more than anything else.

    I bought some stuff which was to be used on the inside of paint ball masks and it has been effective, even in hot and muggy south Florida.

    I use nice and clean lens cleaning wipes. They are individually wrapped towelettes that have an anti fog agent. Just tear one open, wipe lens and pitch. I also keep one in my range bag for cleaning between rounds if I get some junk on my glasses. They're available at most walmarts in the pharmacy.

    Go to a "REAL" drug store and get a bottle of glycerin. Rub some on the lens and then polish them dry with a soft, clean cloth. Works on welding helmets, motorcycle goggles, eye glasses and bathroom mirrors, you can do the same thing by rubbing a bar of soap on the lens and then polishing it off, bar soap has glycerin in it.

    See a doctor. Excessive sweating, easy overheating with exhaustion may indicate a medical problem especially liver issues. My wife went through the same thing for years until a correct diagnosis!!

    I was head referee for a major paintball field for 15 years. Paintball masks are notorious for fogging and are THE most important part of gear for that particular sport. Solved the fogging problem years ago by thinking "backwards". Get a mild stick type deodorant anti-perspirant. Do a test prior to hitting the field to assure there will not be any irritation. Apply a small amount to your cheek under your eyes using your fingers. Go mow the lawn or do something else to get a "head of steam" going ( or simply sit around and do whatever...) If any irritation is experienced you can immediately wash it off since you are home.

    If all goes well as it probably will, as I never had anyone say they had a problem, the next time you are hitting the field, apply the antiperspirant to the areas covered by your glasses using your fingers. This stops the source of the lense-dew thereby eliminating fogging.

    Someone on here suggested dishwashing soap - "Dawn" for one - a few years ago. You wash your lenses with it and do not rinse it off. It seems to work.

    Thanks everyone! Thanks for the medical heads up Andy...when I saw you at Cabelas I know you saw I was really weak and shakey then..I did get checked out and its my heart and the Dr wanting me to do as much cardio as I can take because I was laid up on my back so long with all those surgeries I had...its getting better slowly..hoping the cooling weather will allow me more exercise time that the heat of summer zapped me of all too quickly

    CalvinMD, find a good doctor who understands your condition. Many do not!!
