There are inexpensive prescription goggles available, like these:

But we've never purchased them, so I can't comment on how well they work.

We have a group member who uses light weight disposable full face shields, available from Fisher, cat. # 19-460-102.  They're less than $2 each and will last several weeks. They easily fit over glasses and are pretty comfortable. Not at all like wearing a regular full face shield.

I've had a request to find a supplier for prescription chemical splash goggles. The requestor finds goggles over spectacles uncomfortable.  Would inserts actually work (they are a pain in the neck, literally)?
