When I wore a half-helmet (StreetGlide) I went thru a lot of glasses. My favs were the ones HD sold that looked like Safey glasses. They sealed out the wind the best and were surprisingly optically clear. Expensive enough that I bought a few shades depending if it was sunny or overcast. The Clear ones worked great at night.

I now wear a FF (Vrod) with a built in visor and clear outer lens.....

Whatever the hardware store has for safety glasses. I go through them for work to quick to get anything expensive. The lighter the better for all day comfort. Wind can be a problem with the non foam types.

I wear liberty switch and wiley x you can get your rx in many of their models. I prefer a frame that has high degree of wrap and fits very close so less likely to get air displacement. The switch has swap able lens that are held in with very strong magnets both companies make ansi standard safety frames and lens. For fellow geezers it takes an optician that 1 understands motorcycles and two inquires about your riding style and position to give you optimal fit of bifocals or progressives. Consider amber/brown poloroid for day time and Very light yeloow tint ( bluetec ) with very high quality anti reflective coating at night. It will both reduce glare and ease impact of oncoming halogen/led lights. If dont want two pair the darkest tint i would consider for night time is a transition driver wear polarized lens.
