Looking for a better way to ski without having to wear my everyday glasses under goggles that fog up when wearing both

Also anyone know any Australian stores that makes these?

    I think they were the ones used by Michael Schumacher. Maybe try another brand ..

    Try asking optometrists if they have inserts for sports, I know bolle makes them. Otherwise you can try www.goggleman.com.au, I was going to give them a try. But I just decided it's easier to wear contacts

    Haven't tried those ones, but I'm a OTG goggle wearer too.
    I never get fog up so you may need to check the quality of your goggles & the ventilation around the foam padding. Sometimes if the ventilation holes are blocked by clothing or just poor design then yes, it'll fog up.
    And motion clears them up too so standing in lift lines or sitting on a chairlift might cause fog but once you get moving, it clears. Once again it's all to do with getting air movement in behind the goggles.

      Thanks! but does the sides of your glasses get annoying to ski with?

    I have tried a few of these inserts and never find one of them to be good to use. I stick with the OTG though it is harder to find them but they are more versatile. Depending on our vision and whether you are going to stay on the slope all day or not. I have -7 vision and will not be able to see without glasses. I am not staying on the slope all day long and wearing the goggle without taking them off. So, for me, rather than taking the goggle off and exchange with a pair of glasses, or using an OTG goggle, I prefer the latter one. And I dont have the fog up issue, unless the seal of the goggle is broken (which I have one for so many years and it wears off).

    oh cool thanks! my eyes are like yours, thick lenses needed :(
    have you tried these specific sport rx ones? why weren’t they any good?
    sounds like i need to invest in a better pair of goggles too. thanks!

      It does not matter what brand they are, they work the same. Especially with high prescription it wont work. As we need our prescription lens to be fairly flat out lying in front of our eyes in order to see things without distortion. The goggle lens or sport sunglasses, they usually have a fairly highly curve surface but using optically corrected lens and this work fine for normal person. This kind of inserts just dont fit well in there. You cant make the insert to curve like the outside lens as that will make your vision distorted as the prescription lens are not focused correctly. If you are on lower index then it may work fine. But like us with high index, it is just a waste of money. I will prefer to get the OTG for much better experience.
