Bob Heath spray?
There's things they can do with contact lenses like putting a lens in one eye that allows you to read with that eye but still see well at distances with the other. I tried that but it didn't work for me though.That's how I used to do it but my sight has got so bad I can't read a map without putting reading glasses over the top of my lenses. I've also tried these multifocal contacts but I can't get on with them. Everything is out of focus with them.
On reflection daily contacts and a cheap pair of readers may be the best bet but I really think (and hope) there are some spectacles out there that can fix my close and distance sight and not steam up when I start puffing and panting.
You young whippersnappers!
Too much technology instead of grannies remedies.
Take one spud, cut a slice and rub the inside against the inside of glasses and visor for fog free riding!

Standard road helmet. I could get an offroad helmet for the closer to home stuff but I hate them at speed and I don't have the space to bring 2 lids with me. Open face is a non starter as I face planted last week and going by the state of the visor and chin bar had I had an open face on I would be wearing my nose all over my face.Hi Boris, What type of Helmet/Visor setup are you using?
I had lazer about a fortnight before the longest day five capitols ride. I am absolutly delighted with the results.Reflecting on your recent "Face Plant" I guess this won't be much use, but after many years commuting and having to wear bi-focals the only way for me was (is) an open face helmet with a Bob Heath Flip Visor, still needs spud or wash-up liquid when it's really very cold.--Roll On Summer!!
Does anyone know if Laser Surgery can "cure" the need for both reading and distance correction.
Perhaps I should have asked that sort of question before I had Cataract Surgery last Nov.--which was a really brilliant!! experience.
I use a respro foggy mask. No problems
Took me a little while to get it positioned correctly tho, and can be a bit of hassle with the autocom mic, but it's so worth it.
I've used one on the road to good effect on my Shoei XR800 and Interceptor but with the XR1100 it was less effective I think in part due to the chin curtain in the xr1100. As I say I don't have a problem on the road as it clears quick enough. It's off road where I'm scuppered.I've tried a Respro foggy mask but found that it made no difference at all, I'm going to try it again but this time I'm going to remove the chin curtain from the helmet in the hope that the warm air from my face holes has an easier path out from the inside of the helmet. (Helmet is a Shoei Hornet BTW)
Well I've tried it without the chin curtain and it doesn't work for me at all, anyone want it before it goes in the bin?...I've tried a Respro foggy mask but found that it made no difference at all, I'm going to try it again but this time I'm going to remove the chin curtain from the helmet in the hope that the warm air from my face holes has an easier path out from the inside of the helmet.

I used to race speedway years ago and there was a product then called Bob Moore which was fantastic. I haven't seen it for a long time but I saw this the other day, but I haven't tried it:Has anyone any suggestions on how to stop my specs steaming up when riding off road?
I have a bottle of this Shift it stuff that came as a freebie with my helmet and it doesn't work for me (nothing does for me, maybe I've got very humid breath!)I used to race speedway years ago and there was a product then called Bob Moore which was fantastic.

I think muc-off do one as well
I think that you might have trouble applying this to the lens if it weren't completely flat and if you did manage it there would be some pretty bad distortion (I've used them on my phone screens for years and they are great but when I used something which was like a screen protector that covered the whole of the iPhone 3gs body it was a right sod to get it to fit without bubbles)Just a thought but would smart phone screen protector film work, as it's a plastic it might just work as a thermal barrier and reduce misting .
Oh and there is anti mist/fog stuff for diving masks on fleabay as well to try.
