I could fill the thing with spit and by the time I reached the bottom I might as well have had a blindfold on. So bad I had to stop diving early. Ill try the toothpaste and lighter but wtf would cause this out of nowhere like that.

This happened to me April 1st and it was leaking too, so every time I cleared my ears a little splash of saltwater would go right in both eyes.  Then the last couple dives it is totally back to normal. In the next dive I brought my old mask just in case but didn't need it. I wonder if it was because it had been a while since the last dive and maybe I stored the mask out of shape?

I have been wanting to try the seaweed trick but spitting in the mask is such a routine part of getting dressed I always forget.

No one ever tells you what the absolute best de-fogger is for your mask....urine.

Urea and it's ammonia like compounds leave glass clear and clean like nothing else, try it.

Silicone skirts can keep off-gassing for awhile and build up on the glass - so I've been told. Are you storing it differently? I use Bon Ami cleanser before a dive. 100% success rate.
