The best solution for this is to lower the eggs very carefully into the water with a spider ladle or similar tool (something like this). If that doesn’t seem to make a difference, you can try ladling some of the hot water into a sous vide bag and then add the eggs to the bag. You would then place the bag into the water and clip the top of the bag to the side of the cooking vessel.
