Great thread. I've been wearing glasses since I was 7 years old and it sucks. I too can't get laser surgery and have a condition known as keratoconus (steep cone shaped cornea) in my right eye . I currently just use a soft contact in my left eye when I play. I tried the sports googles and those actually fogged up more than my glasses. I hate having to play around with equipment when I am on the bench. As many have stated once you start skating a bit the fogging subsides. However, for sweat issues I would recommend that you purchase an under armour skull cap ( it works great). The skull cap keeps the sweat from dripping in your eyes. For those that wear glassses when you play it also depends on the style of glasses that you have as some glasses do not sit correctly on your face once the helmet is on. Those with 20/20 vision who are athletes do not know how lucky they are!
