Default Anyone Use Prescription Goggles ?

Just wondering if anyone here has experience with prescription goggles ? Do you buy the goggles at the sport store and just change out the lenses to a specialty ordered one from your glasses store? Or do you guys just wear your glasses underneath the goggles ? Any info would be appreciated thanks...

I just wear the goggles over my glasses. Many goggles will say their not eyeglass compatible but it will work as long as your glasses aren't gigantic. My current goggle is Anon Hawkeye and it fits fine over my glasses. I've used a much smaller goggle last season and it still fit over my glasses. I'd say you should go to the store and test it out if possible if your worried about it.

Some companies make "inserts" that fit in the goggles. Couple pair of the same goggles with different lens colors.....you just switch the insert.

I have a friend who has prescription goggles, they cost him an insane amount of money just for the lens, few hundred at least if not more. He had to special order the lens at a glasses shop in Whistler.

I'm really blind without glasses too, but I wear contacts for snowboarding. Have you tried contacts yet or are your eyes not suitable for them?

I either wear my prescription motorcycle sunglasses (with transition lenses) if it's not dumping, my OTG goggles with my regular glasses, or more recently, contacts with my goggles.
