Sports sunglasses and highly aerobic winter activity

Discussion in 'Glasses' started by Gene Goldenfeld, Dec 1, 2003.

  1. I'm writing to pick the brains of opticians and athletic types on this
    one. There's a current discussion on rec.skiing.nordic, primarily a cross
    country ski racers' newsgroup, about prescription sports glasses, skiing
    and fogging. It's a common problem when the aerobic (and anaerobic) skier
    stops on cold days, and deadly in races. I have been using single-vision
    inserts for Bolle Paroles and Rudy Project glasses for a few years, and
    have adjusted the nose pieces and inserts to create maximum breathing
    space, but that just seems to buy more time. One skier reports having had
    an optician replace the lenses on wraparound snowboard glasses with
    Transitions, adjust the frames a bit, and then use some anti-fog spray. He
    reports an improvement, but not total satisfaction. Are single lens
    glasses with factory anti-fog any better? Anything to know in choosing the
    best kinds?
