Well there are already many reasons to laugh about me: I run a pink body on my buggy, fluo clothes, drive with my girlfriend, come with the train or buses on the tracks,..so goggles would just look normal on me

Honestly, I don't care about the looks. I like driving, my eyes need protection and that's it I'm not racing toys to look like a superstar

Pulse, We raced MX for about 10 years up untill 2008. I know a few guys wore goggles over there glasses. Also there was a company that made prescription goggles. Not sure they still make them, i will see if i can find some info. for you. I bet they would be kind of expensive though.

what nitroexpress posted look like a safe bet

if your allready wearing glasses i would of thought you would be ok the above looks a safe bet to me - i have seen safty glasses that look more like shades but by the sounds of it you need something that doesnt allow anything near your eyes.

So so true

Just get a good pair. You'll likely want to upgrade to contacts if you can.

Again, very true, experience this when I'm flying my RC plane, you need to get a good and trusted brand.

Usually it's the dust that bugs me. I can take nitro exhaust straight to the eyeballs with no problems. Some races have a "No watering after 1st Q." rule. Those are the races where my eyes get painful. Stupid rule.
Man, you call that stupid? How about a track that never water from heats to finals?? We have to use the doctor mask to cover our nose from the dust. I always bring along my eye drops and use them

well if you have glasses the ones that would be a good investment
would be Oakley Goggles and SCOTT goggles........
they have sets of goggles made so you can wear Glasses under them.
there pricing are around 34.00 to 120.00 depending on "Style"
like the Oakley MX L-Frame can wear glasses under them
and run about 30.00 to 35.00

or can get "Style'in" and go with the Oakley "Wind-Jackets"
those and the M-Frames are what i use.
but there kinda Pricey......

I used to have a problem from time to time where my vision would start to blur and I'd see double. Usually in the middle of a main. I went to see an ophthalmologist, told him exactly what my problem was and it only happened when I raced RC cars, and found out my left eye was naturally drier than my right. He just gave me some good lubricant eye drops to use and I've been great ever since. The visit is usually covered by insurance but if not it'll run about $100. I tried wearing goggles but did not like how they restricted my peripheral vision at all, now I don't even need em. Just throw some drops in my pit bag and use them throughout the day.

Even without considering the protection it would be a good occasion to mix my glasses to a tinted lens. My actual solar glasses have no correction on them.

I found out the VR28 OAKLEY to be a good lense for what I'm looking for so I thought I would share it.

Oakley VR28 Lens:
Medium to bright light. Filters blue light to increase contrast and improve depth perception in a wide variety of conditions.
Light Transmission: 28%
Protection Index: 2 on a 0 to 3 scale
Environnement: Ground, asphalt
Conditions: medium to bright light
Neutral / Contrast: Contrast

I give you a link about the different OAKLEY lenses colors for the different applications:
http://www.vision3k.com/oakley-ski-goggle-lenses.asp

I couldn't find the same chart for SCOTT goggles for the moment but as soon as I find it I'll post it.

Although I don't give a hoot what anyone wants to wear on their face, but above poster has a good point, there are glasses they sell at lowes ( even nicer once at your local harley dealer, or maybe motorcycle shop ) that are just regular sun glasses with foam around them that seal nicely to your face.

Yeah Oakley lenses are the best I've used in terms of ski goggles and sunglasses. I would go with Oakley and get some ski goggles to wear.

I used a pair of Fox goggles at one event where wind and dust was a major issue. I have just forked out for perscription sunglasses which will cover me for most scenarios but I would happily where goggles again if needed. Go to a motorcycle shop that has dirt bike gear and try on a few pairs. I liked the yellow lenses (commonly used for trap shooting) as they brought the colours out really well and helped with depth perception until my eyes went down hill even further

sadly not everybody is like you.

When i go to 3D cinema i use the 3D goggles outside my everyday glasses.
I might look like a jerk,but for me there is no other possibilitys.

I doubt it..

As soon as you want correction AND sealing I don't think there are many other solutions than goggles

Here are the OTG goggles I found:

OAKLEY OTG L-FRAME


OAKLEY OTG PROVEN


OAKLEY OTG CATAPULT


SCOTT OTG 87


SCOTT OTG STORM


SCOTT OTG VOLTAGE X


SCOTT OTG UNLIMITED


There are more high end models and other brands, it's just to give an idea. Of course there are plenty of different lenses and frame colours
