Visor up/ down ?

I'm curious, how do you guys ride with your helmet visor when u have sunglasses on ?

A. Visor up, sunglasses are good enough
B. Visor down, need all the protection u can get
C. Visor down, but cracked just a bit to let some airflow in

I've been doing C. alot lately

I wear glasses anyway. I have some prescription sunglasses. So, I wear them and keep the visor down. After that lit hit my faceplate, I want something between me and the cruel world.
