I am wondering if many people use cycling goggles. I have glasses but they steam up and can easily get broken. Any options people have. Was looking at cycling goggles but want to hear peoples opinions.

I have the same problem with steaming up glasses and would think that goggles would be as bad if not worse at misting up. Has anyone tried the "muck off" anti-fog solution or otherwise any recommendations for a good pair of clear glasses for cross country night riding that are not so prone to misting up.

i use clear glasses (non-prescription) and the steam thing can be solved although tedious.
rub soap (from a bar of soap) onto both sides of the lens then rub with a good quality glass cloth.
I forget the science behind it but it works (for me anyway) but if they get wet you will need to re-apply.

Buy anti mist from motorcycle shops normally applied on the inside of visor
Any good motorcycle shop should have it.
As for glasses wear sports strap to stop them falling off but i suggest you to good cycle shop and try some of the eye shields with detachable lenses then you put tinted ones on when sunny.
If you do a bit of shopping around you will come up with a solution to this problem.
But the soap method as suggested in other post works and is cheap alternative.
