My ex wife used to wear them. I tried them once. Kind of good. Need to keep rain-x on them though. Very lightweight. She never fell hard, so I don't know how they hold up.
If one day you're asked:
" How did you spend your time here on Earth?"
Will you say:
"I kept a crabgrass free lawn"
It's time to SKI.

They claim to float and before there were chewed up they looked as if they would be sturdy enough for a fall.

I had a brother-in-law come up from ND into Canada for laser surgery. Cheaper up front plus exchange rate. He had only an 8 hour drive, so not too far.

Before I had laser surgery, I wore a pair of prescription raquetball glasses, lots of padding on the nose, virtually indestructable. I just attached a floating key chain to the strap on the glasses. They fell off many times (I fall alot), but I was always able to retrieve them.

I am considering prescription eye goggles and thought I would check to see what others do. What works? What doesn't?
I have had the same problem. After years of frustration and lost glasses, I found the perfect solution. Go to the web site www.sportspex.com. This guy does prescription lenses in goggles that are guranteed to float. Between tubing, boarding, and slalom, I have face planted more than I care to admit, but never lost the goggles. They're always floating nearby when I come up for air. I've had two pairs (needed the second wen Rx changed). It's great to be able to see, and not worry about losing the glasses.
