I wear glasses. I am looking for a pair of goggles that will fit comfortably over them, without spending too much money. Does anyone have any recommendations.

Very few options. I too wear glasses...

Just saying "without spending too much" is a bit vague...

There are Ansi rated goggles for about $8 or $10 upwards to $150 or more.

TurboFans barely fit over my glasses and it's not a perfect fit, plus they fog badly with both glasses AND the goggles.

Prescription inserts cost extra on just about every goggle so that's an added expense.

Getting goggles made in your prescription costs extra.

Contacts cost but then you can wear just about any goggle you want hence lowering the cost of the goggle you may buy.

I am just looking for simple goggles that will fit over my glasses for less than or maybe around 20 dollars.

Less than $20, fit over glasses, ANSI rated, you get things like this. http://www.keysan.com/big/picsacm3299.html

If you want leet, sexy stuff then your price is going to go up with those guidelines.

Visit Walmart :P. Seriously, paintball goggles work for airsoft. All you have to do is cut, or work-around, the face mask to just get to the goggles.

txbaseball, forum standards around here call for using basic English and spelling in posts. "u" and "wutever" are not word. "cant" means something different than "can't". Please take the time post clearly in the future. Thanks.

Your local sporting goods store should have some goggle cleaners in their hunting section. I could've sworn I saw some at Academy's here in Austin.

I use Bausch and Lomb lens cleaning tissues and they work great. I think they are like 6 bucks for 50 of them at walmart

I haven't bought anything yet but I know shooting glasses are allowed at skirmishes right? Do I need to get sealed goggles for any ops specifically the Crecent Fallout op comming up?

Everyone remember that ANSI rated goggles are required for almost ALL of the skirmishes/OPs/etc...so you might as well spend your money on the right product if you plan to stay in airsoft and be covered under all the circumstances.

I'm not sure where you got your information, but regular shooting glasses are not allowed. Ballastic shooting glasses are allowed, but be prepared to back up your claim. Full sealing goggles are not required by TASO, but are generally required by field owners and op organizers due to insurance/liability concerns. Questions like this is usually addressed by going through the TASO documentations regarding rules of engagement and safety.

Shooting glasses are sometimes forgiven/used at Hunter's IF you are an adult.

TASO Op's call for ANSI rated full sealing goggles.
