Can I wear ski goggles over my glasses?

Wearing Ski Goggles Over Glasses

If you wear prescription glasses, you always have the opportunity to get prescription ski goggles, though they may be a bit expensive. If you don't want to splurge, you can wear your glasses under your goggles. If you do so, you should make sure your glasses are made out of polycarbonate because it is more fog resistant than glass. Also make sure your frames are made from nylon instead of metal, as a cold metal frame could cause fog in your warm goggles.

Always use anti-fogging solution on the lenses of your glasses to avoid having your glasses fog inside of your goggles. When you're getting ready, you should put your goggles on right before you step outside to go to the mountain; it's best if your glasses and goggles are the same temperature when you're putting them on. And always make sure your goggles have proper ventilation to prevent fogging.
