Question Wearing glasses and Paintball Masks

Greetings all,

I am wondering what masks work best for people who wear glasses? I recently have begun wearing them, and up till now have just gone without when playing. Unfortunately, this has proven difficult as I have an issue seeing detail beyond 20 ft or so...contacts are not currently an option for me for various reasons, and going without typically causes me to have pretty bad headaches.

I'm not blind or anything, just have a slight need of correction but it's enough to drive you nuts after about 30 minutes of not have them on.

I currently have a pair of i3 pros w/soft ears (wife bought them for me for Xmas) and they tend to press against my head and dig my glasses into my temples....not comfortable to say the least. .

Just wondering if anyone has any tips or insight.

Thanks

my team mate wears glasses and sadly this restricts what he wears for gogs. He cant wear any dye goggle or close sitting mask. Your best bet is to look into goggles that give you a decent sized lens.

Look into Grillz, JT Flex, and e-vents, or Profilers. Thats what Ive seen him wear.

There's a thread in the stickies about choosing the best mask with glasses.

I bought a seperate set of glasses to use while playing sports. They're made by 'Flexon' so nearly indestructible. Add some scratch resistant lens and 'Cat Crap' to help prevent them from fogging and you'll be set.

I use JT ProFlex, Flex8, i3Pro, Profiler, and Axis Pro with my glasses.

Here's a video of frames similar to mine.

Thank you guys. I was considering the Profiler or Grillz as it were as my backup.
