    If we had socialized medical/dental/vision where everything is covered without out of pocket costs I would take the risk of a cloudy exam and go.
    I just had an exam and they did some without glasses and some with glasses, and the glasses did fog up with the mask, so we just wiped them off and started over. I think it is a common problem. So they are dealing with it as they do the exam.

    After reading what you posted, and after a lack of response from LensPure, I guess I will try an eye exam. But I am not going to go back to the last place I went.

    The sequence of events was I went to Place A for a routine eye exam and due to the issue they saw they sent me to Place B that was more specialized. At Place B I was there for three hours which is a long time to wear a mask.

    So I called my vision plan today and ordered a list of providers in my area and I will pick one that knows nothing about my eye history. I will see if they notice any problem like Place A did. Since my condition usually improves on its own if they don't see any problem I will consider myself cured.

    If I go to a place that knows my history they will want me there for hours doing various tests which not only is a breathing issue but could be an unnecessary expense if my eyes are fine.

    Similarly if a mask clouds up someone's vision they shouldn't have to wear it during an eye exam.

    Ok ... Enough of the nonsense... I have over 35 years in the dental field. We have patients rinse with a solution of hydrogen peroxide for 30 seconds or chlorhexidine gluconate ( also known as Peridex) . we also go over their current health history about the current medications and the usual questions regarding Covid. during a dental procedure. there are precautions taken as there is a lot of aerosols due to the air/water syringe, the hand pieces and splatter of saliva and blood. Also the use of rubber dams a a huge help in preventing aerosol exposure using hand instruments instead of using the cavitron ( ultra sonic hand piece used in cleaning sub gingivally)
    As far as the fogging glasses, there are many many products that can be used to prevent glasses fogging up due to masks , we in the dental field have been using them for decades. Its also used to prevent fogging up on the dental mirrors as, it is completely non toxic. Fogging should not prevent you for getting an eye examination.

    I heard on the radio today that people in rural Missouri are getting secretly vaccinated. They don't want their anti-vaxx family members to know. They will tell the person administering the shot, "Please don't tell anyone." Some places have set up more private quarters for giving the shot so the recipient will not be seen.

    I know both my shots were given in view of others. Maybe making this type of accommodation can help with some of the vaccine hesitancy.

    Got a letter from our school encouraging parents to get their kids 12 and older vaccinated or they will have to quarantine 10 days if exposed.

    100% agree. Facts are facts. Not everyone is amenable to fact. I wore safety glasses and masks in the OR for 4 decades. Fogging? Nope.

    I've had 3 eye exams and a laser iridotomy procedure this year. I wore my mask the entire time of all 4 visits. Not a problem.

    What helps? I'm not looking for any excuses to bitch about any mitigation.
