Dang, that was close - July 1, 2013, 06:05 PM

I've got scratches on my eyelid and nose from some thorns that I rode through on Saturday. I was real close to hitting my eye, even with my glasses on (wasn't wearing goggles). Time to find a solution to my fogging problem with my glasses/goggles. I had forgotten about hitting the thorns until I saw myself in the mirror earlier today and saw the scratches. Maybe I'll try the goggles with the built in fan...

have you tried contacts?

Do you really NEED the glasses?

I wear glasses, but mainly need them for reading.. I can see well enough for dirt riding/ skiing without them.

I have the Oakley Crowbar goggles, have rarely had any issues with fogging with those.

I went the contacts route. Those plus safety glasses is what I run most of the time.

My glasses inside of goggles were driving me nuts with how easily they fogged.

Ha!

I do need the glasses. My prescription is +4 in both eyes. If I take my glasses off everything looks like a tree, including my bike.

I did try contacts. Two different ophthalmologists had trouble putting contact lenses in my eyes. I couldn't do it myself. I am thinking of lasik and am likely to set up a flexible spending account to pay for it next year.

These are the fan goggles that'll probably be the next thing I try:

Check around. I think someone produces a goggle with a fan/ventilation on it. Not cheap though.

For really hot and non-dusty conditions I go with yellow shooting glasses. I've had good luck with them. Not so good with dust or high wind situations. (Higher speed runs over 50 for any length of time.)

You can also go with better goggles with a double cover to prevent fogging. Or higher flow of air through the foam. I've got good and bad goggles due to the foam. And yeah, I need to pick up a new set myself. Guess we should have a "Dirtbike Goggles" recommendation thread huh?

This! It's what divers do as well on their masks. You can also pick up stuff like Blaze or any anti-fogging wax. I've had good luck with the Blaze stuff I got at the Moto show.

Done it, also tried different commercial anti-fog products (oh, and toothpaste). The problem is that I sweat as much as 3 or 4 normal people and I wear glasses.
