Because of this I suggest you find glasses that are rather curved down low and come in very close to your cheeks, or even touch your cheeks.
This is exactly what I have been struggling with in the past year, and it drives me nuts. My eyes start to water, burn, and blur. It's usually the right eye first and I try squinting but nothing works except stopping and cleaning my eyes, and it always comes on shortly after I become aware of a draftiness inside my helmet.
The curved lenses sound like a good idea but I have a very strong correction and the distortion that I get from prescription wrap-arounds is horrible.
