In a separate email exchange with James Kaufman he provided these helpful recommendations for goggles that may fit over prescription eye glasses and anti-fogging wipes.  What follows is from James.


There are several brands and styles of goggles that are larger and can accommodate larger eyeglasses.


One of my favorites is the Allsafe Mongoggle, for example,


Another one that I discovered recently is the UVEX FlexSeal.


My suggestion is to call all the vendors and request a sample of each.  Number them from one to X.  Invite colleagues in to try them all on and pick the one they like best.  Order the one they pick.  The power of Choice is strong medicine.


Several manufacturers make surfactants for anti-fog treatment of lenses.  Encon is one.

goggles.  I think that more effort needs to be done in evaluating
anti-fogging solutions and other types of goggles or safety shields.  Safety
shields could be suitable for students wearing prescription eyeglasses.
