    Goggles for night riding with prescription glasses

    Does anyone out there with prescription glasses ride in very cold weather (<15 degrees F) at night? If so, do you wear something like ski goggles to cover the glasses? I find that I will probably need to do so because my glasses get fogged up when I wear a combo clava. Has anyone found a pair of goggles that will:

    1. fit over prescription glasses
    2. fit with a bicycle helmet, and
    3. work well for night riding in areas that are lit only by bicycle lights?

    I've read that ski goggles work better than safety glasses because the former do not fog up as much. Also, I am inclined to get clear lenses. But has anyone tried the Scott "night amplifier" lens? Thanks for your recommendations.

    I fought this for years and found no good fix until......I got contact lenses at the age of 36. That is the ONLY reason i got contacts in fact and i have been kicking myself ever since. I don't know what i was waiting for.

    It completely cured the problem and as a side benefit i have better vision, no more glasses etc.
