I like the idea of the motorcycle glasses especially of driving.
Here in Albuquerque when the wind picks up there is a lot of dust flying around.
I keep my swim goggles near the back door so when I take our dog out back when the wind is gusting since we ony have xeriscape or rather stones and dirt in the back yard, I can put them on to keep my eyes free of the dust and wind. They are also tinted like sunglasses so they are good in the sun. In addition, hate fit snugly enough that they also keep my eyes open through pressure on my eyebrow and forehead areas. So they accomplish several things for me.
When the wind isn't too bad, wrap around sunglasses work for the short period I'm outside (long enough for the dog to do his thing. If I were working in the garden part, the swim goggles would be great.
Also, the goggles are wrap around so I even have peripheral vision with them on.
I have become more cognizant of not only how the wind and dust affect my eyes, but now if there is a lot of dust blowing, I clean my dog's eyes, too, when we come back in. I figure that being so close to the ground (chihuahua mix) he must get some of that dust, too.
Anyway, there are some good suggestions here. I'm glad I don't have to contend with contacts. I don't even thnk I could get them into my eyes.
Also, on another subject heading here, someone mentioned getting sunglasses in the Walmart sports section for preventing glare. They might also work for windy days. They might be something to check out too.
