Riding Glasses

I'm looking for suggestions on riding glasses. I've been using regular safety glasses for night riding and tinted safety glasses for day rides. I don't like goggles. Just wondering if any of you had any good suggestions for glasses that are comfortable and keep the dust out. Thanks for any input you may have.

Like them or not, goggles are the answer. Nothing else is going to keep the dust out. I've seen goggle type glasses, but I think they are pretty much garbage.

above 32 deg F I use an open mx helmet and prefer safety glasses over goggles (my favorite set- up). when it gets dusty unfortunately I have to wear my goggles (least favorite set up). below 32 deg F I use a snowmobile helmet with a flip down shield(second favorite set up). so maybe a helmet with a flip down shield is what u need.

I wear Norton 180 Safety glasses. They come in different colors. I like them because they fit over my prescription glasses.
