Since you are always going to see your own nose, goggles with a lot of plastic around the nose area makes it much worse. There are goggles out there with less plastic around the nose for this exact reason. I rock the Oakley Splices which were specifically designed for snowboarders to combat this issue:

These look like a great solution, however I have to wear strictly OTG goggles and $100-$160 is way out of my range. I'm looking for like $80 or under.. but idk if thats even possible =(

Are there any other ideas you have to help remedy that annoying nose?

Tarzanman Ride more difficult terrain. I guarantee you'll stop looking at your nose and start concentrating on not busting

I can see my goggle's nose frame in my field of vision?

Similar to how one can see a part of their own nose, I can see the nose frame of my goggles. It is a ghost-like non-solid image, but it is a bit annoying and I can see it basically right in the middle of my vision while riding down the hill. I do believe my goggles are on properly but this still occurs. Is it normal, and what do you do to ignore it?
