Any tips for a player wearing glasses?

Practically blind without my glasses, and I don't own contacts anymore...is there a specific mask I can get? Possibly a defogger or something of the sort to help me out?

V-force Goggles are a good fit for glasses wearing, also both the empire E-vents and E-Flex both worked for me. If you can get to a paintball store and try on some mask.
I've heard good things about this fan kit

I bougth one, but haven't had a chance to try it yet.
I also use this on my glasses

I found the liquid spray works the best, the gel tends to re-liquefy, the glasses won't fog, but its like looking thru water.

I've got e vents and i really like them but my glasses fog. I'll get some of the c clear and try that before jumping into the $60 fan. Lol

Just in case... make sure your mask is tight, if it's loose then your breath is more likely to get up to your goggles.

Contacts are good, if you can get a prescription. If you're not eligible, then try to get some cheap "sport" lenses. They're typically anti-fog, and can even be tinted.

I know you don't own contacts but for the love of God please try to get them. They make everything so much better. Just don't rub your eye too much.

If he has a serious astigmatism, or other ailment of the eye, he might not be able to wear contacts.

Certain ways you breath will fog your glasses up. In through the mouth out through the nose to push the hot air down and out of the mask. It's has helped me with keeping my glasses from fogging up.

I also have events.

As someone who uses glasses, an e-fex and the $60 fan, get it and don't look back. I've tried every other solution before it and non have worked as well as the FLEXR. The first time I used it, the fog disappeared from my glasses seconds after turning it on.

One of the best investments I've made to the point I'd say it's mandatory for players w/ glasses . Sure it's a bit noisier than expected, but I can live w/ that than my glasses fogging. Never had a fogging problem once it's on.

Contacts are a must for any active sport. Suck it up for the first few days and you'll forget they're even there after that.

As mentioned by GhostJedai, contacts are not always an option. I have astigmatism and cannot wear contacts without causing further degradation of my eyesight. However, I've managed to play comfortably wearing my glasses under a Helix, Flex8, or Proteus. Fogging is pretty easily controlled by breathing through the nose, though the Helix was still pretty bad about it.

As long as your mask fits properly you should be fine. Like a previous poster said, make sure it's tight. Yeah, they make fans for stuff like this, but sometimes it just isn't worth spending the extra cash.

i wear glasses under events and use a double fan kit. the mask doesnt fog. my glasses fog when its humid out, crawling through the weeds,anytime i wear a hat, even if its 19 degrees out or if im playing too hard.

i've tried contacts. i have an astigmatism and the contacts that are supposed to fix it hurt my eye.

i am not satisfied with any of the current offerings for glasses wearers.
