During the COVID-19 pandemic, there have been several changes to federal and state government mandatory face mask guidelines.

We recommend following your facility or workplace’s mask fit-testing protocols. If face mask fit testing isn’t offered at your workplace, you can make an appointment with an independent fit-testing service.

It is essential to select the best face mask type for your environment of use, whether you wear glasses or not. If you’re purchasing our D95 P2 Respirator Mask and work in an environment that conducts fit testing, your fit tester will advise how to wear your glasses with your mask.
We recommend that you ask your optometrist for tips on preventing your glasses from fogging for other face mask types, including our Level 3 Surgical Mask, Level 2 Medical Procedure Mask, and 3-Ply Community Face Mask. In addition, your local pharmacy may sell anti-fog lens cleaners, sprays, or gels to help prevent your glasses from fogging while wearing a mask.
