I'm having trouble driving at night and went to the DOC who said I'm -1 and -1.25. I think I will get some glasses to drive the bike at night and was wondering if anyone can recommend a good frame that won't move and fall off from moving my head and be stable and at the same time. Thanks.

I had to get glasses on my 30th birthday :spank


Sucked....

dunno what frames I have...got some light weights and some rigids and boh function well in the helmet


The padding holds them still


The only issue I have is in the cold they fog up at a stoplight


Hence why I rarely wear them in the cold.....I need glasses to see further than 100 yrds so it's not a big deal if I don't wear them.

I wear glasses (not required for driving) but gave up wearing them riding. Mine are bifocals and the distortion when turning my head to look over my shoulder was too much. I found that what mattered was the frame/helmet combination and how it all fit your head. Find frames that "hug" your face and don't stick out too much for starters and see how they feel with your helmet.

yeah, it's not that hard. I have flex "wires" and I don't even feel them, even with a helmet on.

I used to wear glasses. Jus some lighweight wire-frame type. SEars has a special going on right now (2 for $98) in their optical department

Since I got lasik, have been glasses free.

I've worn my glasses with my helmet. I don't think they are anything special (the frames), just a simple metal wire type.

99.9% of the time I just wear my contact lenses... much easier to wear and I can put on sunglasses then.

I tried to and only successfully did so, once. My frames are paper thin flat so I couldn't quite get them in my ears with the padding in the way. When I did try to just place them, it vibrated too much. Since then, I've worn contacts. Less hassle when taking off or putting on your helmet, too.

I've worn glasses since I was four years old. They don't pose any problem at all under a helmet. Just make sure you don't get frames that stick out too far from your face. In fact, I took my helmet with me last time and tried on glasses while wearing the helmet.

I too wear my glasses under my helmet. It's the best way to go.

When I had glasses (lost both pair in the past 6 months) I wore them under my helmet. No problems. Whenever I would fit myself for a helmet, I made sure I could fit my glasses in with ease.
