Our face mask blog post has information on cleaning face masks, and our second blog post about face masks gets into ways to deal with ear loops if you can't use them and more about managing glasses fogging.
It isn’t easy being a senior citizen and trying to use a face mask while wearing eye glasses and needing hearing aids doesn’t make it any easier UNLESS you are wearing a CatBall mask where the elastic goes around your head rather than your ears. Before discovering CatBall, I managed to lose one of m hearing aids now I no longer have to decide if I want to hear, see, or get Covid. Thank you CatBall for making this senior’s life less worrisome and certainly safer.
I bought a size medium mask with behind the head elastic. I love the way that it can be easily lowered and raised for any circumstance. It fits well and stays put; no sliding down on the nose. My only complaints are that there is not enough breathing space behind the mask and all the air exchange is next to the nose. The mask fits so tightly all around the edge with a tiny breathing cavity that my breath is forced out the gaps next to my nose. This fogs my glasses and makes it a little harder to breath than with no mask. I also purchased a size large for my partner, but it is too big for me.
Great. As advertised.
These masks are awesome, especially for glasses and hearing aid wearers. Thank you for thinking of us when you designed them. The masks are excellent quality, and they wash really well. We will definitely order more.
Very comfortable but nose wire too narrow to be useful, needs to be longer. I taped twist ties in for better coverage over the cheeks and under the eyes. Overall face coverage is great.
