Any recommendations for prescription glasses for riding

Need to use up whats left in my flex account and was wondering if anyone knew of any good active/sport glasses with effective anti fog that are not to much of a PITA to wear under a full face helmet.

Anyone?

I'm the same way, you just happen to have an excuse.

http://www.zennioptical.com/ is one that lots of bicyclist swear by... mainly cause they're cheap. Theres a few sporty looking slim ones that may work. $20-$30 range.

lots of hipster glasses too.. incase you're into that.

Then again... you might want some actualy safety glasses so you don't end up with a pane of glass in your cheek after a wreck.

I am in the same boat. After 5 years using contacts I went back to regular eyeglasses. My eyes feel much better without the contacts.

So far I found this but will like to check them first at a local shop.

Personally , I can not ride with glasses on.. I mean I can, just not comfortable..maybe comfortable is not the right word, confident might be better...
Let me explain, with my glasses, I can not glance down at the gauges... I have to drop my head and take my eyes off the road... If I just attempt to glance down without moving my head, I can not see, I literally look under my glasses, not though them and I can not see - my eyesight is bad... real bad.
