of the Twilight Zone
I have been just shooting with glasses. That's been the case for years but I'm rethinking that and looking for options.
Peltor has some. Anyone use an over the glasses option?
No, but Wiley-X has models of shooting glasses with prescription inserts. Talon is one of the models, and the one I use.
40 bucks Smith sells a goggle called the Boogie Regulator. Total eye protection, passes all the stringent military protocols, saw one shot with a 22 short, UV safe, blah blah blah.
I love them. I shoot steel and these allow me to not worry in the slightest where with glasses I always try to either face steel directly or face away.
Internet says fogging is an issue. I have only had any fogging under conditions where even glasses can fog.
I've been very happy with these. When I originally got mine, they also included a tinted lens.
We often meet our destiny on the road we took to avoid it.

Outdoors I use Cocoons fitovers; indoors I wear clear generic ones I bought from NRA Store (unknown maker). Cocoons run around $50, the generic ones around $10-$15 IIRC.
I wear the Cocoons fitovers as my daily sunglasses anyway (I have several different pairs), and have been very pleased with their optical clarity. Just be careful when cleaning the silver mirror version -- too aggressive and you remove the mirror. (Cocoons replaced that pair.)
I like the Cocoons because they are also wraparound which is good for shooting as well as keeping out stray UV when outdoors. Also, you can get the Cocoons in different sizes to accommodate various prescription frames.

why not get some prescription safety glasses? Fit overs are great for a one off thing but with a hobby it just make sense to get the right equipment, doesn't it?
When you do things right, people won't be sure you've done anything at all.

FWIW, look at the Pyramex Solo Jumbo Clear Safety Glasses (top line, second item from the left) -
I just went looking for the biggest size I could find. I don't know about shatter resistance (if they're resistant at all); I was just trying to keep hot brass and shreds of cases or bullet jackets out of my eyes at an indoor range.

I ordered something like these in clear Trivex lenses with my prescription.
Love them. They work very well for shooting.
I have Rudy Project wrap around glasses with a prescription insert. www.e-rudy.com. I have Agon frame.
I have a pair of those Uvex goggles. I prefer, and ordered, the yellow tint lens. They seal around the face very well, which makes them great for yard work where I will be stirring up dust.
However, for shooting in AZ, they would be simply too hot due to the good seal. I'm sure they would work well in more northern climates.
Wiley-X also sells a pair of goggles similar to those Uvex ones, and which takes a prescription insert. In fact, the same insert that goes into my Talon glasses. Not sure if they are still in their line-up. And a good seal and heat here in AZ presents the same issue.
