Anyone tried them?
http://www.pro-vue.com/moto.html

i dont have terrible vision but i definitely wont ride without glasses. i either ride with my glasses or prescription sunglasses. the sunglasses wraparound but i still get stuff in my eye. escpecially if it is wet or if im following someone.

anyway its time to get somegoggles. id really like some oakleys but they dont make prescription goggles and its hard to wear glasses underneath. i know it will come up so ill mention that i cant wear contacts. if i could i would have them.

Also any other prescription goggle suggestions would be great.

those pro-vue look funny. Have you ever tried a light prescription of contacts? I know for sure that would help tremendously.

There are some oakleys not directly from the company, but they can install prescription lenses. How about foakleys?

I have your same problem. I haven't tried the provue but I have tried a different type done with oakley where they put a plastic lens carrier between your eyes and the google lens. i didn't like it at all. Was very awkward to wear plus the lens wouldn't stay put and would vibrate. This system looks to be better as it seems to attach with screws to the lens it self. My solution was to change to something in the middle so I changed to Panoptx, now 7 eye I think. They are cool because you can get all types of lens colors, I run clear and a bronze, and the foam insert is removable so they can be worn as regular glasses or sunglasses.

I am a glass wearer for the past 30+ odd years. Past few months i've been using goggles over my glasses and gradually the glasses frame gave way(not cheap frames either).
I was pretty stubborn in the beginning not wanting to try contact but after trying on a pair of daily contacts.......finally now i am using 'daily contact lenses' ...they are cheap(should be less than 3 bux per 2 days weekend) and you can use ANY shades or goggles you deem fit.....seriously you should try them.
Lotsa brand choices you can try ie Ciba Vision Dailies,1 Day Acuvues etc etc...and because i only uses them during weekends or holidays during my rides i really find them super convenient.

p/s i did have a case of bad foggin with the glasses under the goggles even using high end poly lenses.
