Fog Free Saftey Glasses

1) Issue: safety glasses fog when technicians have a dusk mask on. This issue was amplified more so during Covid.

2) Current "fogless" glasses don't work because instead of fog there is running water that also obstructs the vision.

3) My invention works by having strategically drilled holes on the safety glass. These holes are 0.098 inches in diameter or smaller.

4) My invention works by "Venturi Effect." As the hot air from the mouth and nose rises, cold air is drawn in from the holes and eliminates the fog.

5) I have filed for patent almost 2 years ago and currently it's pending.

    This invention came out of frustration!!! I am an Aircraft Mechanic. I have worked for Lockheed, SpaceX, and Boeing. Even BEFORE Covid technicians were frustrated when safety glass fog. Covid made it 100 times worst for us. When wearing a mask-which is mandatory in industries- glasses fog up even if you using antifog lenses. Anti-Fog lenses don't work because they make the fog watery, giving an illusion of a waterfall when you are working, which os VERY irritating. My invention is experience proven. IT WORKS!!! No FOG!!!
    Out of frustration I drilled tiny holes on the surface of my safety glasses and the fog was gone. The principle behind it is Venturi effect. Hot air rising up pulled the outside cold air in and FOG IS GONE!!!
    Since then I have optimized my design but because I still work 12 hours a day I had no time for new drawing. I have filed patent.
