If you are a skier or snowboarder who wears glasses, then you know the struggle that comes with finding the proper eyewear for your sport. Regular goggles don’t fit well over glasses without causing pressure and discomfort, which can quickly ruin a day on the mountain. Some opt for wearing prescription sunglasses, but those won’t provide the proper protection necessary. Prescription goggles are also available, though come with a high price tag.
Fortunately, manufacturers have developed Over-The-Glass goggles (OTG goggles) that are goggles designed for comfort and proper fit over glasses. OTG goggles have the right amount of space in them without placing too much pressure on the face. Some brands also provide channels that allow for the arms of your glasses so you don’t need to worry about them being smashed into your temples. A higher quality lens will provide you with stronger sight and ultimately a safer experience on the mountain. Given you need to ski/snowboard with glasses to begin with, it’s wise to invest in the highest quality goggles you can afford for optimal performance. Additionally, OTG goggles will have an anti-fog coating on them, but it will be helpful to apply a coating to your glasses as well for optimal protection.
