I just simply wear a nylon do-rag.

FWIW, my eye sockets sweat. Apparently this is not typical, but not unheard of. On a super hot day where I start out hard (for whatever reason - not my norm), I am wiping sweat from my eyes inside five minutes. For me this is a live with it condition. I wipe sweat from my eyes often. The only 'solution' has been getting older, where I cannot put out the watts I could when I was a younger (DOB 1949). I just don't sweat as much as I did at age 66.

Another vote for Halo bandannas. The silicone strip keeps 90% of the sweat out. The only sweat that is still an issue is the stuff that forms within the eyebrow area or just above.

Mostly ride Southern AZ heat and what works best for me is the Halo 5, adjustable for perfect fit and I fold it in almost in half to fit exactly between my helmet liner and glasses rather than underneath either. It channels sweat away from your eyes and off your glasses, that channel material grips so it does not move around, the fabric absorbs and wicks.

I use these (from the bay): Summer Winter Moisture Wicking Skull Cap Helmet Liner Cycling Running Beanie Hat [ Thin/Lycra ]. Pads the helmet and keeps the eyes clear.
