This has been asked a number of times. Short answer, ESS Land Ops or NVG goggles, probably want a fan on them too...

Any goggle that is rate OTG - Over The Glasses

It also depends on the size of your glasses. I used to have a pair that didn't fit in my Land Ops, just too wide framed. Got a slimmer pair and they fit just fine.

I still don't have a fan on mine, probably something I should get over the winter. The Land Ops seldom, if ever fog but you glasses will.

The ESS NVG's would require some pretty small/narrow glasses, I know my wire frames never used to fit, at least not comfortably, and I have a narrow head. From what I've heard the Land Ops are really the only good options in ESS's line, though other manufacturers may also have some good options.

Exactly. I have never seen glasses that would fit in ESS NVGs or Profiles. They're just too damn small for that. ESS does make prescription lens inserts for their Profile line of goggles if you feel like getting custom lenses made for your goggles.

I have ESS Land Ops that I wear over my glasses, which while not huge are still pretty large. With the foam removed from the top and bottom meshes of the goggles I rarely have fogging issues with my glasses even without a fan.

For the record, I got the inserts for the Profile NVG line. I think I paid ~$150 or so for the lenses, but you could probably get it done cheaper online, and the insert itself is only like $30 or something.

These had worked with mine, I had somewhat wide glasses with narrow frames. I sadly had to cut the foams out a little to make them fit just right, sadly the foams where a bit to thick when I got them.
