When your eyeglasses fog up on the inside of your goggles in the middle of a shred session or triple jump, it just kills the moment. Going over the glasses (OTG) with your goggles has zero advantages. We have a better idea: prescription goggle inserts designed to fit inside your goggles. Discover the experience of goggle inserts for snow and motocross and ditch old-school OTG forever.

Eyeglasses tend to fog up easily because they sit close to the face. Your body generates enough heat to mess with the cooler temperature around your lenses, causing them to fog. Most eyeglasses don’t come with an anti-fog coating to prevent this, but even when they do, it won’t totally eliminate that pesky fog.
Compare the OTG method to using a prescription goggle insert. Inserts sit right against the goggle shield, farther away from your face. The benefits of this include better venting, air circulation, and temperature regulation. They still might fog, but not as severely as eyeglasses would. Plus, when customizing your prescription goggle insert, we recommend adding an anti-fog coating as an extra precaution. Less time cleaning up the fog, more time enjoying your favorite sport!
Using prescription goggle inserts also gives you another big advantage. They’re much safer because they nest within the goggle and not on your face. So even if you have a bad fall, the insert will stay safe within the goggle, so you can get back up, and continue your run.
With OTG, the goggles also press down on your glasses, causing unwanted pressure on your temples, which could lead to headaches. Not to mention, even having one little mishap could cause them to break. It’s hard to enjoy being out in the elements when you can’t see!
SportRx has created a variety of shapes and sizes of inserts to fit almost any goggle on the market. We take your prescription and make these lenses housed in a flexible frame. When your inserts arrive at your doorstep, you can simply snap them right inside your goggles, holding your prescription in place.
If you’re worried about people seeing the insert, note that the prescription goggle insert is semi-hidden behind a lighter goggle lens, and fully hidden behind mirrored lenses. We generally recommend a mirror lens for snow and MX anyway, so it’s a win-win!
