Over the Glasses Goggle

Since I ride with my helmet visor open at all time, just using the pull down tinted visor and my glasses, I get a lot of dry eyes, any recommendations and feedback on "goggles that can be worn over the prescription glasses" preferably anti-fogging and polycarbonate / Photochromic lenses.

found these:

Problem with photochromatic is behind a windshield or face shield, they work less.... will go darker once in direct sun.

I used to like ProGrip photosensitive googles on dirtbike. Lately have been wearing inexpensive Scott simple clear lens.

If you want to get expensive. You can get prescription goggles.



However I have a question. How are you going to wear such goggles? With the strap over the helmet like a dirt bike? Dirt bike helmets are designed specifically for goggles. The eye opening is shaped to fit the goggle frame. The sides are shaped so the helmet shell does not hold the goggle strap in such a way as to pull the goggles out from face. The back and sides of the helmet are shaped and have rubber contact spots to grip the goggle strap.



With the strap under the helmet? That will not work.



What you need is a pair of prescription sports glasses that hug the face and wrap around the eyes. Before I needed glasses I used to wear sun glasses that were wrap around. The wind never bothered my eyes.

Damir,

I agree with Mike, here. My next prescription eyeglasses will be the wrap-around style.

I would not use any tinted lenses, for two reasons:
1. Unless the lenses block out all UV, they admit more of the damaging UV light into your wide-open eye (iris).
2. They can make it harder to see things like traffic hazards in low-light conditions. It is difficult to notice that change in visibility, while riding.

To your good health,

.

Cheers,

I ride with my visor open also, but only a notch or two, might help with the watery/dry eyes. Keeps the bugs off the drop-down sunshade which is a pain to clean. I wear prescription glasses also.... alternate have a pair of prescription Serengetti's.

Yes good points, I wear my Schuberth C3 and love the super wide field of vision, and definitely don't want Goggles that would limit my field of view, and additional rubber strap may cause pressure points on my head and be annoying. I definitely want my helmet visor all the way up, and the built in "pull-down-pilot style" shade works great without distortions, so a clear (non photosensitive) lenses may be a better choice.

I am guessing some of these "side shields for prescription glasses" that can be quickly installed before every ride may just do the trick?

Scotts sells OTG goggles which are same but just a bit bigger than others.

Scotts sells replacement lenses of most every variety including double pane anti-fog. Its just that I don't remember seeing double pane photosensitive.

Scotts sells primarily to the dirtbike market. Loud and garish colors.

Damir,

Ummm . . . No.

100% UV protection is what you want, and anything less is less safe. 100% protection is NOT difficult. After all, you can't just go and buy new vision parts, even now.

Take the best possible care of your eyes.
