hey guys. I wear glasses that are fairly large (not that large) but i find that I cant use them with goggles. I don't find contacts comfortable, so I cant live with them. Anyone have any solutions.. like one thats designed to be worn with glasses? help :(

A few companies make goggles specifically for ppl w/ glasses.. IDK all of them.. but I do know oakley makes some.   They are called "over the glasses goggles'.  Ask google for some.  Looks like Smith and a few others make them too.
I don't think I'm bad... I don't box, no karate... just here to make friends with everybody

You should probably try them on and see how it feels with the glasses. I know what your saying how you don't like contacts, but i would bear it and maybe try a different brand/type of contact maybe? Glasses and goggles is just a fogging mess, then considering the movements and what not, i can see it getting annoying quickly.

My sister picked up a pair of Smith goggles that she can wear over her glasses. Be sure to try them on though, to make sure they fit. She can only wear the goggles over her older glasses since the frame is a bit smaller.

Also, another friend has a pair of really old Oakley goggles that actually have a separate set of glasses built into them. He can take his regular glasses off and just wear the goggles. Not sure if anyone still makes that kind of goggle, but it seems like it's a pretty nice option.

well... how big are your glasses? i use oakley O frame goggles and it fits ok. the only problem is that when i take my goggles off, my glasses come off with them, but i have a ginormous head, so it's expected

you want to make sure that your glasses dont fog up when you put your goggles on. I had that problem and it sucks!

My friend wears goggles and he rocks the EG2. He says his glasses or goggles don't fog up and they fit his glasses perfectly. They're a medium frame I'd say.

Smith makes a few OTG goggs. I've their Knowledge OTG and they're huge. Pretty sure they'll fit hipster style plastic framed glasses too.

I saw a guy with some prescription goggles at Killington a couple weeks ago.  They had lenses right in the lens so they were pretty noticeable, so I can verify that they do exist, but they might be pricey.  Unrelatedly, he was pretty high and calling himself scuba steve.

^ they make prescription goggle lenses. mighty pricey though. but your goggles become a 2nd pair of glasses.

^well it is dependent on your glasses size, so l wont say o-frames will fit on all. Plus your glasses would be prone to breaking on falls too

i would recommend trying the contact route again... talk to your eye doctor there are sooo many different styles.. i have astigmatism but i was able to find contacts that work for me no problem.  I also don't leave them in over night or anything like that.... its so much easier when you don't have to deal with glasses...
MOAR powderz plz!

I dont think my problem is finding the size of the contacts. I can't touch my eyeball. I tried to put contacts before. I can't even use eyedrops, and watching people put eyedrops in their eyes makes my eyes watery...

If you wear a helmet, make sure to try the goggles with the helmet and glasses.
Some OTG goggles might put pressure on your face from the glasses when the strap is over the helmet.

I used to wear glasses under my Smith goggles but had issues with my glasses fogging up even though they are fog treated. The extreme cold will fog up anything warm so it's hard to say if glasses is a safe route. I always end up stopping, pull out my glasses and wave them in the air to clear the fog. I have sensitive eyes and I can feel almost anything tiny that touches my eyes. My gf had me try on some Acuvue Oasis contacts and they work wonders (i can still feel them but not irritating enough). Try em! and lose the glasses!

Is not the contacts, he can't touch his eyes.
I never had any fog problem with my glasses nor goggles. I've always put them on while I'm outside so that the air within my goggles and glasses is the same temp as outside.

It comes and it goes, get it while it lasts.
