Should work fine. Good Luck
    Interesting info, thanks.
    I don't get the clay bar aspect for glasses, though....have seen it used for detailing car paint.

    Poseidon mentioned Oakley's "hydrophobic" lenses, but they also sell "hydrophobic kits" for non-hydrophobic lenses. Might be worth looking into.

    *I use a heavy duty glass cleaner to get waterspots/salt residue off my car windows. It removes everything with little to no effort and it smells great. I'm sure this would work on non-prescription goggles/glasses too!

    So, to update I got Sea Specs and love them. I clean Em with baby shampoo rubbed on the lens and rinse. They rarely fog up out there, and when they do, spitting on the lens works . Like them so much, I just ordered a pair with prescription lenses, it's going to be awesome to be able to actually see out there.

    Thank you all for the info. I have places next to my eyes that resemble sea turtle flaps, from squinting so many years. All tan,and then white stripes. I am sure this will prevent headaches from too much eye tension as well. I have a pair of Speedo polarized goggles I use to swim with, but they will not hold on a duck dive. And they would look truly ridiculous (unless I was wearing a Speedo swimsuit in true Euro South Beach style).

    Do you get water spots on the sea specs glasses that make it hard to see?

    I could careless what I look like. I'm a bodyboarder so I have no respect anyway. haha How do those speedo googles work? I'm thinking of getting a pair.

    I am too old to worry about looks. Old chicks are not too choosey. The gogles work good on an ocean swim, that's about it. They will get ripped off your face on a duck dive. Mark Cunningham is one of the greatest surfers of all time, and all he does is body surf Pipe. I think the motorcycle goggles would be the ticket, if you had a leash for them.

    Only occasionally . When that happens I use spit. On two seshes since I got them about six months ago, they were not good and I took them off. All other times they were good. I assume they'd be as good in the colder northeast in terms of fogging. Am in Florida. It's nice not to have fried eyes.

    If you are going out only on most weekends I don't think you should be having much eye issues from the sun. Stop worrying so much
