My eyes weren't as bad as yours, but I had PRK surgery in April, and I couldn't be happier either. I easily forget that I once had glasses. Sooo worth getting. My surgery will pay for itself in 5 years, because I destroyed glasses and inserts all the time. I hated them fogging up. Falling off my face. Not seeing rode signs until I was up close. Losing my glasses. I do not regret one bit of it, and I wish I didn't hesitate on the surgery for as long as I did. Sorry to sound like an infomercial but I'm pretty damn happy with the results and I can't wait to ride this year without glasses or inserts getting dislodged or fogging.

However, back to the main topic. The last season I rode, I got fed up with inserts, that I just bought those massive Electric goggles and wore my regular glasses underneath them. Work out ok, until my glasses (not the goggles) fogged or if I took a fall and my glasses completely dislodged.

If you can afford it and if you qualify, I definitely recommend reconsidering PRK or Lasik.
