Goggles to put over glasses

I want to get my brother some new goggles for christmas, he's been having some trouble with is current pair, he likes to try and wear his glasses under his goggles but that hasn't been working out to good, either they wont fit over the glasses very well or the glasses just fog up rather quickly.

I've done some research and found a few people saying these goggles which have a built in fan were a good choice
Products | SmithOptics.com

I'm hoping for some more suggestions on maybe some different goggles you recommend perhaps ones that can have a prescription lense? or any ulterior methods... and I've already suggested he get contacts but he's a girl when it comes to touching his eyes....

Smith and Gordini make goggles that are meant to go over top of glasses. Built in fans help to keep the fog out as well but like with any moving part it will eventually break.

Any goggles that are OTG (Over the Glasses) will allow a person to were prescription glasses underneath the goggles. However, I'd recommend your brother get contacts. Not only does it open up a bigger realm of goggles available for his use, but it also is more convenient overall.

I wear glasses when I ride and I wear (and love) Anon Hawkeye goggles. The lens is really large and provides great visibility, and my glasses don't bump against the inside of the lens either. (No scratching on the inside.) I've found that if I wear them slightly higher on my nose, my glasses don't fog up at all, even when I'm in the lift line.
