Dry, red eyes from cycling and protective glasses(4 posts)

Dry, red eyes from cycling and protective glassesishmael

My eyes have always gotten dry and red from cycling and now even more so since laser eye surgery and I'm looking for some good glasses for riding that are padding so as to block the wind. I've just bought some Panoptx Chubasco cx glasses and they dont fit at all. Do you have any experice or solutions?

I have contacts and have good luck with Oakley Hybrids. I don't think the smaller "new" Hybrids provide enough cover.
I tried the different shape of the Sweep model, but they were cut in a way that allowed small drafts of air to stream right into the sides of my eyes.
Goggle-style seem to work better than models with seperate left and right lenses.

These are both very wrapping glasses that provide plenty of protection. The Ekynox have a couple of options for conversion to goggles, so they might be worth looking at. I have had my standard Tayo's for two or three years and have never had a problem with them.

While really big, they keep just about everything out. I had a pair, but just switched to Hybrid S because they were too big for my taste...
