Hi guys

After my planned return to biking had to be put off last year due to some unfortunate circumstances I'm now looking to try again lol.

Iv decided on the on one 45650b as my bike as it seems to get some good reviews but my question is what do riders who need to wear glasses do. I know contacts seem the obvious solution but I can't wear them so do I just get cheap pairs of glasses so if they get broke its not the end of the world or is there another option?

I wear glasses and have not really had a problem with them on a ride yet, can come in handy deflecting mud from some angles.

You used to be able to get prescription Oakley sunglasses and similar which would be an ideal at least for me as I find a few of the models follow the contour of my face well so should stop mud to eye strikes 99% of the time. Guessing the final pair of glasses would not be cheap though.

I believe there are also models of goggles that are designed to accept glasses if full face is your thing too.

I wear prescription Oakleys (eye patch 2's) but normal ones under my goggles if DH'ing has been done but gives a limited field of vision.
If you do a quick search on the Web there's a few companies specialising in sports glasses and if I could think of their name it would be useful, sorry.
