Glasses are easy to ride with. How would they work against you if they improve your vision. My eyes are just fine to ride and drive without mine, but I need them to see in classes.

it sounds like your eyes are still adjusting to the prescription. I ride with glasses too, and i remember when i upgraded my prescription last year, i had a lot of trouble with depth perception and knowing exactly where i was and when my bike was going to hit the ground. Give it a few weeks and your eyes should adjust just fine. As for glasses falling off, try bending the frame a slight bit so there is more friction around your temple and ears.

I'm scheduled for laser eye surgery this fall, hopefully that will be the end of glasses for me.

Cheers!

I had to ride with glasses growing up. Depth perception was a bitch to get used to. I also had astigmatisim which made it even worse. But you get used to it.


A few things you can do to make them fit better. Get a bungee neck strap. The ones that are like rubber tubes & attach to the ends of the arms(not the ones that slide up & hag down around your neck). You can shorten them up to where they fit like swimming goggles. Also crimp in the arm closer to your head. Get nose pads. They vary greatly in size, shape & stiffness. You can get the gummy pads. They are almost like gel & have pretty good grip on the bridge of your nose.

i used to wear a bandanna around my head and that held them on. but now i have contacts, which are the best thing since sliced bread.

trails are not skateparks, they exist solely from the work and dedication of local riders. so next time you start complaining about not having local trails to ride, you only need look at yourself.
Bike check?

haha these are funny stories lol no bungee straps for me lol

yah well i threed and they flew off into the street, since i couldnt see i crawled into the street to find them as i was crawling my lighter fell out of my pocket then i made an 18 wheeler that carried gas swerve around me then tip over and spill gasoline over the road. thennnnn my entire family was in a van and drove over the lighter and i witnessed the whole city blow up in front of me. i was the only one that didnt die. do you know how it feels to live with that on ur shoulders?
