goggles for glasses?

I can't decide if I would be better to buy goggles with prescription inserts or just but over glasses ones?

the over glasses ones I've seen look a bit big?

any thoughts?

I never tried the prescription insert goggles, I imagine they'd be better than OTG goggles. I had LASIK 5 years ago primarily because I hated snowboarding with glasses/contacts/etc. My fiancee had it done a couple years ago, and she still wears her OTG goggles, so they're not that big!

I personally hate riding with glasses (without them I'm legally blind in WI), but I've never thought of getting inserts and would like to try that out this year. Do you know where to shop for prescription inserts?

I've always ridden with OTG goggles, even though I wear contact lenses when I ride.
I prefer the greater peripheral vision afforded by the OTGs.
I think regular goggles look too small actually.
