I've just gotten glasses for the first time in my life. My prescription is fairly weak, -0.5, and I am nearsighted. I only need them for true distance and in fact I can read better without them than with them. I didn't think it was effecting my skiing at all, however, I now notice that I can see more details in snow with my glasses on. I now feel that my sight might be affecting my skiing. I do not want to wear glasses skiing, as I ski quite hard, tend to do a fair bit of hiking at the resort, and do a lot of bc touring; all of which I feel would make my glasses fog too much. My question is this; what do people in similair situations find the best. I can get prescription sunglasses and goggles to wear while skiing. Or I can get contacts. I see benefits and negatives to both. I can't wear contacts on a daily basis since I have trouble reading with them on, but I think they would be fine skiing, except for reading maps while touring. With the glasses/goggles I could remove them if I want to do any close in work, but they might be more of a pain in other situations. I'm sorry this is so long, but any suggestions from people with experience in this matter would be greatly appreciated. I'm really not sure which route to go.
