Why do swimming goggles fog up and can I stop it?

Swimming goggles fog up because of condensation forming on the inside of the lenses. This is either perspiration or water vapour from your skin. Therefore, it is likely to be worse if you are exerting yourself.

Most swimming goggles will be sold as ‘anti-fog’ treated which means they have a silicone film applied to the inside of the goggles. This helps prevent water ‘sticking’ to the goggles, instead it runs off the lenses, thus preventing fogging.
