Goggles and glasses

Does anyone here have any experience with using glasses under goggles? I am planning to get a fullface helmet and goggles, but I use glasses so I am curious if anyone know of some goggles that fit glasses fairly comfotably.

You can get some goggles that are designed to accomodate glasses. Oakley makes some but im sure other brands do too.

Most of the major brands sell goggles that fit over glasses. The problem you may run into will be with your helmet. A lot of full face helmets barely fit regular goggles so unless you are getting a ff helmet with a wide opening you might find it very uncomfortable. If you can, once you get your helmet look for a shop(check motorcycle shops as well) that carries goggles in stock, bring your helmet and try on the goggles over the glasses with the helmet.

I know Oakley and Scott make goggles that work over glasses.
