    About a year ago I had Lasik eye surgery done. Now I see slightly better than 20/20.

    Because of special circumstances, my doctors won't allow me to wear contacts. I'm stuck with the ol' coke bottles.

    I use a Spectra thermal with the crosswind fan on it. That combo alone keeps me relatively fog-free. Add a dash of rain-x anti-fog on the ol' glasses before I start and I'm good for the whole day.

    I wore glasses a couple of times paintballing, I find contacts to be much better.

    i wear specs...in my spectra thermal, although i dont usually have any probs fogging the lense, just my glasses, so a single pane usually works fine. i just try not to breath into the mask butdown, also warm up the interior and glasses a little first, it helps.

    I got the JT Rx inserts.. Very neato keen. Only prob is that the rx is a bit weaker than the Rx I need. I dont find myself to fog up though. Even with regular glasses. Does the Anit fog spray work for reg glasses too?

    I also have the JT frames that (are suppose to) snap right into the spectra mask. They wedge right in over the nose part of the mask, making the fit very snug. Works great.

    Tried contacts, didn't like the feel and couldn't get use to it.

    I have just carved out my eyes

    I hate my glasses for Paintball and am Very happy that I dont have to play in teh woods any more

    I play typically without my glasses ( not a big problem with Hyperball/Sup Air )

    I have tried Contacts but I need something I can throw away after a few uses and with my football of an eye I cant get disposiables that fit my eye yet.

    When I did have them ( contacts ) I liked them, never had much of a problem with them.

    Well I kinda cheated on this one. I use Army issue Gas mask inserts. I ordered some JT no fog spray and one squirt does each eye piece good the whole day.
