face shield attachment for bike helmets?

I'm wondering if anyone has invented a removable clear faceshield that mounts to the visor snaps on many helmets. After a short while riding on a hot day, my glasses get so gungy from evaporated sweat I either have to remove them or interrupt my ride to clean them. Having a half-face visor (think what some hockey players wear, or the new TT masks) would solve it, I think.

Saw 'em in a Performance Bike catalog about eight years ago.

I know they used to be commercially available, self-stick velcro along the top, clear plastic shield with a nose notch. Bought one for touring with our 5-year-old; she didn't like rain in her face. Can't remember the brand, but my local bike shop got it through one of their regular distributors. Probably J&B or SBS. No idea if they're still available.

Take off the glasses. Problem solved. Just watch for bugs.

You could look into products like the Sweat Gutr, it channels the drips to the side... just in front of your ears. No more grungy lenses!

Every time I've convinced myself it was okay to do that I spend 20 minutes on the side of the road digging a knat out from under my contact.
