Personally, I can't wear contacts and don't even qualify for lasik surgery.

The Smith I/OX turbo fan remedied all of my problems though. I can finally wear my glasses while riding. No fogging issues whatsoever.

Worth every penny I spent.

2hipp4u Spent four days at Luv and Copper over new years wearing my new inserts and I am pretty happy with the results, no fogging at all. I did have a bit of a problem with the top of the insert slipping back away from the lens but a little piece of foam rubber wedged in there seemed to fix the problem.

MikeCL I tried contacts like 7 years ago.. hell I tried letting them put the contacts in at the eye place and my eye got so red and sore from the trying we just gave up.

My eye just seems to not allow anything near my eye, I wear glasses but they are small, I wonder if having a helmet on will cause issues or not?

z.smith11 Smith makes quite a few goggles that fit OTG and they also have an RX insert that fits in some of the models.

This site sells the adaptor with the RX lenses for $100.

deminimis Definitely post a follow up after you've made some runs with them. I considered them for MX and slopes, but never pulled the trigger. I ended up with Barz surf goggles for wakeboarding (I look like a Bono, but they work, so I don't care). I may try them on the mountain, but I think they are better suited for the water. I have OTG goggles for MX and snow for now, but I definitely need to do something different.

Sassicaia Good luck with those, the thought of fogging alone would keep me away. My eyes just started going a couple years ago (light prescription at only +1). Last year I training myself to use daily contacts which I could just throw out after boarding. Took a week to train my eyes, but after that it works great.

having said that im getting my eyes done and buying the insurance. Never met a person who regretting that purchase.
