    To all you Goggles-connoisseurs

    Greetings!

    So I've got a question for you guys,

    Thing is that I've got (very) bad eye-sight, and it was no problem to find glasses with diopter lens. Now, is there any chance to find dioptered full-face helmet goggles? I've been looking on the most known sites and haven't seen any. And the real shops don't have any goggles at all. So, again, are they even making those? Are they just harder to find? Or are goggles a no-go for poor eye-sighted dudes like myself?

    Thank you all for the replies in advance.

    Actually they do! Thanks a lot! If only the "prescription" lenses didn't cost 3 times more than the goggles themselves though...

    You could also try OTG, theres a couple models of Oakley and Smith that are specified as being over the glasses capable. Works ok for me, not awesome, but ok. I suppose the inserts would optically work better, but when you take goggless off you need another pair of glasses to put on. OTG you use your normal glasses, but fit can mess with lens alignment, i have problems with the nose pieces and goggle foam pushing the lens high.

    Definitely consider OTG googles, Scott, Oakley and 100% make them, probably others as well. Sometimes you have to look under the MX motocross section.

    Will do, thank you. I just fear that the glasses will keep jumping around or something like that under the pressure of the goggles and the helmet.

    The straps and side foam press the arms of glasses and keeps them from moving, thats never been a problem for me. Main problem i have is its hard to get the lenses aligned nicely with the nose foam. Secondary is fogging but you get that whatever you do.
