DIY EYES.
Prescription lenses for your goggles.
Fortunately goggle manufactures have made provision for adding corrective lenses to their product.
But thats about it.
So with sight issues as bad as mine i have no option . Propper lenses are a must .
2 options , purchase or produce.
Produce.
Take 1 pair of old specs and cut up.
Sounds easy as.
It is.
The tip is that standard electrical tape is the same size as the factory diopters .
Put your old glasses on and place a strip of tape accros the glasses in line with where you look.
remove lens from frame wrap several layers of tape on both sides of the lens ,to protect it.
take a dremel and cut and trim untill it slides into the slots
do not forget to lable left right and whitch way is up..
Cheers

I posted this because i know the issues and with this aproach a good result is usually had.
Those whom rely on their glasses will get it

It's a 82g racing frame that features 6mm arms, a TPU micro cam mount, 30.5mm and 20mm stack mounts and 3K carbon and 7075 hardware. My goal here was to build a high quality 6S racer at a reasonable price. I'd..

This is the 4th installment to my popular "Wizard Killer" series, and is based on the popular Wizard X220HV 6S. As usual, the goal was to build a substantially better quad, yet come in below the retail price of the BNF kit.
