KN95 masks provide a higher level of protection than 3 ply or cloth masks, second only to N95 masks which are not presently available.
3 ply Masks
3 ply masks are rectangular-shaped coverings (often pleated) that can be looped around the ears. These 3 ply masks are effective while costing significantly less than KN95 masks.
Ear Savers help to relieve the discomfort caused by elastic strap friction on the ears, making masks more comfortable to wear all day.
Face shields provide protection from fluids, sprays and splashes. Select from disposable one-time face shields, or reusable face shields with replacements visors and more comfort features. Face shields generally accommodate masks, glasses and goggles.
“Seeing clearly” when wearing face masks with glasses
While it’s probably true that face masks aren’t the favorite item of clothing for most of us, it’s certainly one of the most necessary.
To help, we’ve put together a short list of tips to make mask-wearing a little easier for people who wear glasses:
Fit your mask to your face: A common reason why you may experience fogged lenses is that your mask doesn’t fit your face well. When putting on your mask, make sure to pinch the top of the mask to fit the shape of your face. This will help in closing the gap that’s allowing the air to escape. If your mask doesn’t pinch at the bridge, use a small piece of medical or athletic tape to close the gap. If you don’t have either of those items, try a Band-Aid.
Wipe your lenses before wearing them: An anti-fogging solution or gently washing your lenses with soap and water before wearing them may help. This will keep water droplets from building up and creating that annoying fog.
Adjust your glasses: Pushing your glasses forward on your nose will allow more air to circulate and keep your breath from fogging up your vision.
Rest your glasses on your face mask: Try pulling your mask up, over your nose and resting your glasses on top of the opening. This will help block the air from escaping and prevent fogging.
Note: If you try this, make sure that your mask still fits properly over your face. Your nose and mouth should be covered in their entirety.
