I wear glasses myself and had no problem using my previous pair while playing hockey.

In my experience, CCM cages are very good for glasses. I've sold several for this exact purpose. They tend to have a rounder profile which helps. I think you can use the anti-fog stuff they use on shields on your glasses to prevent fogging.

Funny timing on this. I was running late tonight and had to rush to put my contacts in. I got them in just in time, but my one eye was bothering me the whole ride to the rink, so when I got in the dressing room, I went to check it out. I didn't see the lense on my eye, so I figured that it fell out or something, so I took the other lense out too.

My eye was burning the whole game and afterwards in the room, I finally found the lense in my bad eye--it was way up top of me eyeball, almost all the way to the back. I had to lift the top eyelid away from my eye, and then look down as far as I could just to reach the lense with my finger. Kind of scary, actually. First time in four months of contact wearing (hockey only; 2-3 times per week) that anything like this has happened.

I wear glasses with a cage, only problem ive had is fitting with the helmet but i got the adjustable helmet so its no big deal. I sometimes do get fogged up lenses on the bench but it doesnt last once im back on the ice.

I have played with my contacts in a lot. It burns like hell when I get sweat in them, which is all the time. So I just don't wear them for hockey anymore. I typically wear glasses(in everyday life). Now the only time I wear my contacts is playing golf.
