Feedback Fridays

By Brig. Gen. Caroline M. Miller 502d Air Base Wing Commander

Feedback Fridays is a weekly forum that aims to connect the 502d Air Base Wing with members of the Joint Base San Antonio community. Questions are collected during commander’s calls, town hall meetings and throughout the week.

If you have a question or concern, please send an email to using the subject line “Feedback Fridays.” Questions will be further researched and published as information becomes available.

Q. How can I prevent my glasses from fogging when I wear a mask?

Driving with a mask is unsafe because of the fogged glasses. Walking or even sitting at my desk can be problematic.

Removing my glasses is not an option because I’m extremely nearsighted.

A. We are sorry you are experiencing difficulties wearing a mask. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, if you wear glasses, find a mask that fits closely over your nose or has a nose wire to help reduce fogging.

You can also consider using an antifogging spray that is made for eyeglasses. Please read more helpful information from the CDC at

Additionally, masks are required outdoors when the space is shared with others. If you are in your vehicle by yourself or with members of your immediate family only, a mask is not required.

When entering any JBSA installation, prepare to have your mask on while interacting with Security Forces or anyone else. Please see the full Department of Defense guidance at

Thank you for your understanding, as it takes community-wide cooperation in the fight to slow the spread of COVID-19.
