So, you like to see while skiing but wear glasses. You're obviously not alone. While finding goggles to fit over glasses isn't too hard, that doesn't mean it's convenient. Enter Goggle Inserts by GoggleNMore.com.

Available in several sizes to fit inside a range of goggles the inserts have molded suspension springs that clip snuggly inside the goggle. Ordering the insert was as easy as providing your goggle make and model and your lens prescription.

My insert arrived quickly and the prescription was spot on. Insertion in my Zeal Portal XL goggles was straight forward. The plastic spring clips popped in and hold the lenses snuggly.

So the inserts fit. How do they work? I have five days on the slopes using them and I really like them. Initially I found the shape of the insert would catch my peripheral vision but that disappeared quickly, much like getting used to a new shape of glasses. There is no distortion between the inserts and the excellent Zeal lens and the clarity is as good as my regular glasses. As I am nearsighted I find it very convenient to raise my goggles and the inserts as one piece when looking at my phone or looking at other things up close.

I experienced very little fogging and only when in the lift line. Even using a buff, cloth mask, or disposable mask, the goggles and inserts stay fog-free when moving.

If you are looking for a solution to your ocular needs, the Goggle Inserts from GogglesNMore.com are worth a look.

Pro tip: remember to remove your prescription glasses before putting on your goggles with inserts. It'll make you a bit woozy if you don't!

Thanks Andy. I bought two pairs of OTG googles, each for different conditions. (One Scott, one Smith). The only problem so far is that my eyelashes get bend against the glasses that I use with the goggles (smaller than my normal glasses - bought for skiing only). I find that to be very annoying. I'm glad to hear a fellow Pugskier give his endorsement.

I have a few more days with them now. They are great. Wish I would have done this years ago!

I have a pair of these too, but haven't been out on the hill yet to do a field test. What I CAN say is that the lens portion of these inserts is much bigger than any I'd seen in person before , which presumably will go a long way toward the alleviating the peripheral vision issue that I've seen with some other inserts.

Have seen this before. Seeing snow surfaces well makes bump skiing turns much easier but then am always amazed what I can do in poor light. Both eyes about 70/20 so minor corrections. Do not wear eyeglasses under goggles though tried that in the past and did not like it.

Went through the goggle option process without adding to cart. Note if one moves off that page to look at other info, the entries are erased so will need to be re-entered. There are 2 pages to fill out via the NEXT button. Besides entering prescription information in the OPTIONS, one also needs to redundantly send via email a print out of digital text of actual prescription or photo of paper from optometrist, not just the numbers, so that needs to be ready. Cost was $37 for just the goggle and a minimum of another $30 for the prescription, so about $70. Am going to think about this some more after skiing .

I have a similar set from Sport Rx. They look exactly the same. I like them but having (most likely) unrelated issues with goggle fogging.

Thanks for the review. I have been planning on switching to inserts when my current run of contact lenses run out. Like you, I would like to be able to lift the goggles to read a map or a phone.
