I have prescription glasses. I am trying to find a solution to help with snow blindness. What do others use?

ESS Striker land ops goggles, with the smoke grey lenses when it's sunny (and amber ones when it's not, and clear ones at night, I have all three). They fit over my glasses, and don't fog too badly if I wear a facemask, or at least a balaclava, when I need to.

I had a pair of Chemstrie snap-on sun glasses. They would magnetically snap onto the face of your prescription glasses. There have two small magnetic disc placed on the front corner of the lens. You just place them up to the front and they snap in. They looked great, and worked great. But, if there the wind is blowing in just the right direction, the wind will un-snap them and they will fall off. I lost mine that way, and others have lost them hiking too. If you had four disc installed instead of two, then they would work good. You can also get them in different shades and colors. They are a bit expensive.

The other option is Transitions, but people complain that they don't work as well as they should. And, if in cold weather, they don't change when they should. I would avoid them too.

I think I am going to just get new prescription sunglasses again. Everything else seems to have problems.
