There are plenty of options for you, I have motorcycle goggles that look like the ones in the old war movies, fit tight and have lenses built in with my prescription ( have stayed on tight to 110) If you want to get fancier, there are a lot of frame manufacterers that fit tight and have a strap on the back to keep them from flying off if you turn your head. I lost a real nice pair of prescription Extremes like that, now a star fish is wearing them. Good pair of goggles, $300 or so, green fly in the eye at 90, priceless.

We went to the Harley Dealer where they had a full array of the elastic banded googles in colors and various lens tints. Needed a good set for whoever sits in the center rear seat of the Skater.

I've got the ones that checkmate454mag posted the link for (post 16). They work great. And look like regular sunglasses. Sometimes they fog-up but I haven't used any anti fog on them yet.

After years of using different goggles for both boating and offroad use I think the NEW Wiley-X SG-1 are the best all around goggles, Plus they can be made with perscriptions.
