Playing with glasses

I've been learning to skate for the past few months, and while I don't think I'm ready to jump in and pick up equipment yet to play this fall, I am starting to think about that direction, reading reviews browsing the hockey store etc.

The question I have is how to best handle glasses. I have essentially craters and ripples in one of my corneas, can't get contacts for it, can't get it lasik'd, and just trying to figure out what my options are.

I always figured myself as a full cage guy, I'm past the age where I'm worried about "Cool" and more worried about not making my mugg uglier than it is, but as I've never worn one didn't know how much of a trouble would it be to wipe my glasses of wearing one. Should I look at visors, should I get sport-goggles or are regular glasses ok?

I haven't had any issues with fogging, but haven't been wearing a helmet, haven't been playing at 100% and have only skated so far in the summer in rinks where I'm comfortable in a t-shirt, so I don't really know what it'll be like in the winter.

Just looking for any guide or direction, things to look out for, or what options to consider.

Thanks.
