I wear glasses under my goggles and have had pretty good success with the Anon Figment. Great ventilation but on warm days I do get some fogging. I also use Cat Crap to help prevent fogging.

Can anyone recommend other goggles tghat would be good over glasses ?

I dunno, I use a basic OTG model from Smith. It works pretty well, though on occasion I do have problems with them fogging up. So it's stop, remove the goggles, air out, and resume.

It hasn't been a big problem for me, perhaps because most of my riding is in the Midwest, where a run will last a minute if you're lucky.

I've got a basic Scott goggle and on warm days it's just impossible to wear glasses. Fortunately, I'm not blind without them, but I have considered going back to contacts and even Lasix. But if someone can recommend a pair of goggles that handles glasses well without fogging on warm days, I really want to hear about them.

I'm sticking with the Smith Optics Knowledge Turbo fan OTG

It happens that I ran into a Smith Rep at a snowboard show earlier this year and he said if I tried the Knowledge Turbo, I'd not be disappointed. He and daysailer are right. This is a great (if expensive) solution to riding with glasses. I've made 3 trips with these goggles, and they're keepers.

Has anyone ever tried PANOPTICS? They are glasses that wrap around, with a foam padding similar to goggles, but they are glasses. I have a few pairs and used to like them. Now I'm a goggles only rider (since I wear my helmet 100% of the time). Motorcycle riders (me!) also like Panoptics. Check them out and report here whether you like them or not. I'm curious what people think.

I started using driving glasses in recent months and may try them under my goggles this winter.

I just got some cheap computer glasses for $20 from Hong Kong and they seem fine. So I may think about some wraparounds that seem a bit similar to Panoptxs. For $40, they may be worth a shot.
