    Eye Glasses with Full Face and Goggles(?)

    I have to start wearing my eye glasses with my full face. For those who have to do the same, do you put goggles over custom sports glasses or do you wear your regular glasses?

    Contacts are out of the question? I think goggles over glasses would lead to a lot of fogging.

    Perhaps someone offers prescription lenses for goggles? Seems like the best option, if available.

    www.sportrx.com looks to have some reasonably priced options.

    Sport Rx has prescription inserts made to fit in Moto goggles. That looks like the best option if you can't wear contacts.

    Expensive but unless you are planning on vision correction soon well worth it. Raced motorcycle Hare Scrambles in Midwest humidity for years and Turbo Fan goggles were the only goggles I didnít have to peel off quickly due to fogging glasses.

    My lord are those expensive. To be fair, no more expensive than the contacts I recently bought just for downhill and they will out last the contacts as well.

    For local trails I just wear my glasses with my full-face helmet. For lift-served I put in contacts for the day. I'm not fond of them but I can live with them for 10-12 hours now and then.

    i might end up doing something like that. my eyes aren't super out of wack, just enough that makes reading at distances of up to 2 feet clear and needed to focus out about 20-30 ft ahead of me when riding. so far i've just been putting my glasses on with my O's and they don't seem to move around at all.
