||New developments in the testing and design of anti-mist goggles

||Surveys in UK industry have shown that misting of lenses is one of the major reasons given by workers for not wearing protective goggles. The problem arises in many industries. A test method has been developed that enables goggles to be assessed for their ability to resist misting. The method involves the use of an instrumented dummy head designed to simulate condensation of moisture on lenses from the evaporation of moisture around the eyes. Experiments have shown that the provision of adequate air exchange behind the lens is more important than whether the lens is anti-mist coated or double-glazed. Laboratory testing of various goggle designs has led to the development of an anti-mist goggle with superior performance. Prototype testing by industrial workers has proved successful.
