Prescription Goggle Question

Hi all, i thinking of getting a pair of prescription goggles. I have been fitting my goggles over my glasses but it almost never seems to fit just right. Plus, I wind up bending them all out of shape just trying to put them on with my helmet on. Sometimes I just don't bother with the goggles but I really don't like doing that. Does any one else have this problem? And, is anyone using prescription goggles? I'd like to get your input before spending more money on an unknown. Thanks in advance, Paul

I hear ya, I have the same problem, Im also thinking about getting Rx goggles, I also play paintball and I have some for that, to bad those goggles do not fit with my helmet or i would use them, but it was some of the best money I ever spent, and im going to do it again very soon.

I used a set of the ProVue prescription goggles for a while - they work pretty good except in really dusty conditions. There are two more surfaces to get dust on - the ProVue's use a 'carrier' lens with the prescription inside the standard goggle lens. I wear contacts now & won't go back to the glasses. The next step will be lasik - just ask NH Kevin about his results.

You may want to look into Skiing (snow) goggles. I know Bolle' makes a great set of RX stuff. When I used to wear glasses (lasik, no glasses now) I found that Ski goggles were more receptive to glasses as well.

Once again, just my .02 cents. :)

The ProVue's carrier lens screws to the stock goggle lens with two plastic screws - one screw at each end of the lens. Kinda like a tear-off post except on the lens itself.

I've been using the Oakley "L-Frame" goggles, which are expanded for eyeglass use. My RX glasses are fairly small, so there's no interference at all. There are still 4 surfaces to clean the dust off of though...
