Eye protection for those of us with glasses

hey crew,

You where all a great help last time so I am coming back to the team for another question.

I wear glasses, and unfortunately all the cool eye wear looks like they will not fit over them.

Is there a brand or a style that is designed to put over eyeglasses?

This is my last purchase and then I am ready to play!!

Any help will be most welcome,

Later days,

Zombie.

most larger goggles will fit over glasses perfectly fine. Just about all PB goggles too.

I'm told the JT Flex is pretty good for putting eyeglasses under. Although I don't know any mask that's designed specifically to have glasses under them other than the "mounts" available that you can put the loose glasses lenses in.

If you find some holler at me, I'd like to know too since I've started wearing my glasses more and probably need to play with my glasses on now. Although I'm assuming the best way is probably getting something that has the space like the JT Flex and if it doesn't fit just cutting the foam out a bit or replacing the foam for for better fitment with glasses.

Well me, I got contacts and started using Bobster Non-Fog Eye Protection, but when I use my glasses I use paintball goggles, this is, they fog up like crazy

I normally wear contacts instead of my glasses, glasses under masks tend to fog up like nobody's business.

Same here, I wear contacts. But before then, I used a pair of ESS goggles, the one with the fan built in, they fit over my glasses, stopped the fogging cause of the fan, but you get to listen to the hum of a fan running all day.

Like a few before me I also wear contacts. I tried glasses with eye protection and had fig issues.
I recommend trying contacts.

I have no experience with this ( I'm in the market for a pair) but Bolle X800's are good, rumor has it. I remember reading it somewhere, but I could be mistaken.

My glasses fit fine under my Grills, I have also had no issue getting them to fit under all Proto masks. However like many others have said, I prefer to wear contacts when eyepro is required.

Provided your glasses aren't too tall, they will fit under a JT Spectra/Flex 7. I'd personally recommend looking at some of the other options here, as my glasses fog BADLY beneath mine, but in a pinch they WILL fit.

Yeah, the revisions are nice, my RX inserts normally hit my eyelashes (you will see some other people also complain about this as everyone is different), but for the revision, my eyelashes don't brush against it while still being very low profile goggles... (Way thinner than paintball goggles, and obviously thinner than any OTG goggles)

I have not tried ESS inserts so no idea on that ye, but should be just as good.

Since you're close to the GTA, you could also go to TAC 11, they will probably have various goggles for you to try on.

Fan may be recommended imo because if the goggles don't fog, your rx insert lenses might...
