Protection for eyes?

Postby OntarioKite » Tue Sep 05, 2017 2:28 pm

Looking for advice on sunglasses to wear while out riding. I own a couple pairs of Seaspecs but find after a few minutes of wearing them, or when the odd bit of water splashes on them, my vision is impaired. I find it hard to see the chop and spot landings. I end up just pulling them down and let them dangle around my neck. But, later that night and the next day, my eyes are sore from being out in the sun, the wind and water splashing in the eyes. My eyes are a bit more sensitive to light than others I think.

Any advice on good glasses that stay clear the whole day? Or any advice on a good cleaner like maybe Rain X?

Oakleys with their hydrophobic coating works for me.

I just use normal sunglasses and clean the lenses with anti fog spray for diving masks before I get on the water.
