Q&A: Wearing Glasses with a Hockey Helmet
Cristina asked: “My son wears glasses but when it comes to hockey he has to take them off. His glasses shift or move when he is wearing his helmet. Sports glasses are too bulky and the helmet gets too tight. I am concerned about buying a bigger helmet size because of safety. Not to mention that the glasses gets foggy after a few minutes on the ice. Do you have suggestions? He is only 7 years old and can’t wear contacts.”
Answer: “This is not an uncommon problem. I wear glasses myself, but am able to wear contacts so I do not have a problem. You definitely do not want to wear a bigger helmet; there is too much risk if the helmet is too big.
I have seen some kids that have glasses with a strap similar to swimming goggles to hold them in place without any extra bulk. I have seen others wear smaller and thinner wire frame glasses that fit. The only other option is to go to a shop and try a couple different helmets on and see if one model fits better than another with his glasses on. There is a very good anti-fog product that we carry called Fog Zero, it is used for snowmobiling and snow skiing as well and it works very good.”
