Ultimately, the best solution is a matter of personal preference. To help you narrow down the choices, SKI suggests these five options.

Zypher Goggle ($80)
and SOS Rx Adapter ($30)
Put off by the face-swallowing oversize OTG goggles? Bollé's Sport Optical prescription adapter, or SOS, fits into nearly all of the company's regular-size goggles, using a simple clipless design that keeps the eyewear piece snugly in place.

Klip Kit ($135)
If you can get past the pod-person look, the Klip Kit provides good peripheral coverage and a face-hugging fit. The Kit includes a separate clip-in eyewear frame that's fitted with corrective lenses by your optician.

Windless Rx Sunglasses ($350-$450)
Panoptx's prescription eyewear is pricey but has advantages. The Windless Sunglasses come in standard wrap styles, and a foam seal makes them perform like protective goggles. The dual lens offers zero distortion, but fog can be a problem if air isn't circulating through the vents.


Rx SkiVision Goggle ($140)
With prescription lenses mounted on the goggle lens, SkiVision isn't subtle about your vision troubles. But this design maintains the prescribed distance between eye and corrective lens, off-ering great visual acuity. The catch is that the single-lens design doesn't prevent fogging, which is why the goggles come with an anti-fog spritzer.

Cascade Turbo C.A.M. ($190)
and Ocular Docking System ($50)
Smith's Turbo C.A.M. battles fog with a micro-electronic fan. Add Smith's Ocular Docking System (ODS), which is a snap-in prescription insert fulfilled by your optician, and fog-outs are history.
