What shoulds glasses wearers do in masks?

Friday host Charlotte Hawkins, once again joined by Adil Ray, asked Hilary if he could help after sharing a picture of Michael Gove with his glassed steamed up.

“Is there a way to wear your mask to avoid that happening?” Charlotte queried.

Dr Hilary responded: “Definitely. So you wear your glasses outside above the mask so you don’t get the steam from your breath steaming up the inside of your glasses.

“And you previously dip your glasses in soapy water and allow them to dry naturally, that gives a sort of anti-fog affect, which is temporary, but it’s worth having anyway.”
