I used to just wear my sunnies that were prescription until they went for a swim on a fall. I then bought some script goggles with band and they seem to be ok now but I miss the sunnies. What do you wear?
You can order script goggles with adaptive lenses called Transitions available in grey or brown
The darkening depends on amount of uv rays present and outside temperature
You get 100% UV protection even when the lenses had very little tint outside
I fully recommend polycarbonate or trivex lenses for maximum impact / shatter resistance
The most interesting new type of lens is called Vantage (grey color only)
As they darken from a very light tint (10% grey) to 70% (hot weather) 85% (cold weather)....
.....molecules in the transition formula line up in a way that the tint becomes polarized
The darker the lenses become the more the polarisation you get
Ask your local optician for more details
Ask about having also super hydrophobic and hardcoat built into both sides of the lenses
Water droplets will bead off much easier on the surface of the lenses..and it does not wear off !!

To prevent them from flying off your head even with strap and losing very expensive Rx glasses
Make yourself a short leash (shoe lace for example) from strap to center top of waist harness back
Leash usually is less than 24 inches long.
