Default Goggles OTG???

Hi, I'm new to this forum because I just recently bought my first board/setup a couple of months ago(sports chalet clearance sale, $350 for whole setup). I felt that I got good enough to warrant my own board.
Previously, I was nooby and was riding slow and stuff, so I didn't feel to have a need for a pair of goggles, but as I got better and faster, I noticed that my eyes would tear up pretty bad, to the point where I have to stop for a few min before going again. So I decided that it was probably time for me to get a pair of goggles if I wanted to get better/faster. The frame for my current glasses are moderately big and some of the OTG goggles don't fit.

My question is, are there any alternatives? I've seen people post that they used safety glasses on top of their glasses, and some people found OTG goggles that fit. I've also read that a lot of the OTG goggles end up fogging the glasses, and I'm kind of in a dilemma.
I want to try to buy the goggles, before season starts because its cheaper. Are there any special OTG goggles, that dont fog a lot?( I've heard of the goggle with a min fan on top, but thats too expensive). Or am I better off just wearing my glasses. My price range would be ~50, I can go a little higher if its good enough.

Any suggestions and help would be much appreciated. Thanks!

O, and I like to do mostly free-riding/carving. No rails, jumps,etc.

edit: and I forgot, but contacts are out of the question(my eyes are too sensitive to put contacts on, I've tried many times), and LASIK is also out of the question. Prescription goggles are kind of expensive, and I don't know if it'll be worth it, as my eyes may continue to get worse. thanks!
