mounting clear plastic lense

Ok guys got a question. For years i have ridden with safety glass bi-foculs and loved everything except the fogging up. Since I ride enduros in the 95F 80% humidity of Thailand my glasses steam up whenever its first gear terrain.

I came across some new whiz bang industriual strength no fog glasses BUT they don't have the bi-focul option I need. Sooo fast forward and I get some stick on bifoculs that just adhere to the lense with hot water.



After putting them on the lense they worked a treat...........for a few hours until the bi-focul lense part falls off the lenses on the ground. Not gonna work for my off roading unless I can permanently get them mounted in place on my glasses.



Any suggestion how to mount those on the lenses permantly/semi permantly without screwing up my vision looking through the lenses?

Best I can come up with is a drop of superglue on the botom rim of the lense. Anyone else got better ideas?

I was thinking super glue too.

What is wrong with using anti fog treatment for the old glasses you loved?
Antifog spray

The no fog sprays and cloths don't work in my environment. The new technology I was told will work hence my stubbornness to get it to work for me.

The no fog glasses you listed also have not worked. The new stuff by Edge glasses is supposed to be the best solution out there and better than whats offered by 3M.

3 months ago I took off my glasses as they were fogged up again and got a branch laceration on my eyeball.

I didn't see you were in Thailand. I went for a jog in Pattaya Beach in '87 I was sweating so bad it got in my eyes and I couldn't see. Sweating that bad never happened to me anywhere else.

How about a helmet fan?

I can imagine running here in the summer would be awful in terms of heat and sweat. So you know what I'm up against with your jog along the beach in Pattaya. Many reasons to sweat in that town, haha.

Is that a fan for the helmet or goggles?

I guess it could be both. Google helmet fan and see what comes up. I think something like that would be the solution.

You could rig something like car racers have to keep them cool. Use a battery pack from a light battery pack.

I can only imagine being AFU in the jungle and blind from the fog up.

I remember my first endure on the east coast. I got passed by a hot dog about 5 times. He would blow by me then crash. I'd pass him and he would blow by me and crash. Enduros are an adventure that's for sure.
