Doing anything with a mask and glasses is horrible.

I can't see the ball in flight with fogged up glasses. So I take them off and I can't see the ball in flight. Looking for my old stache of contact lens.

Been advised to use double sided tape (like they use for hearing aids) to stick it down.

Or wash glasses with dishwashing soap.

Years of dealing with wet weather, glasses and orienteering convinced me that none of the touted solutions work in the outdoors. They may work fine in a controlled environment like a hospital, when one is not exercising. Breathing more heavily in an environment with temperatures around 10 rather than 20 is another matter.

Glasses and skiing are no good either.

I'm glad this is happening when the temperatures are around 10 rather than 20. At least it keeps your face warm when outside. Can you imagine doing this at 30 or 40. :-((

I nearly overheated spending half an hour in a mask yesterday, ladies at immunisation place said they'd got used to it though. Think baby finds it confusing!

Masks not mandated in NSW yet so golf tomorrow should be OK. Bad enough in Bunnings today with mask on and glasses fogging up straight away.

The half hour PPE training I did on Monday was enough to convince me that I didn't want to be wearing a mask and protective glasses at the same time (and I only wore both for a couple of minutes).
