In my experience, my Grillz work well for me when I have to wear glasses.

My Events fit me well, and my old Vforce Provantages also fit well. Grillz also work, and if memory serves, i4s are a close fit, but work.

It really depends on the frames you have.
My frames don't fit any mask, so I just switched to contacts.

Contacts not only free up my mask choices to ALL OF THEM, it also helps in the real world when I want to wear sunglasses, watch 3D movies, ETC.

So I'm recommending to try contacts out if you cannot find a mask. But all the masks listed will fit smaller framed glasses.

VForce Profilers provide a lot of room. I don't have glasses but i'm sure they'd work

Proflex's work good for my friend. Great ventilation too so no fogging.

This is true. I've worn glasses under my Profilers too. Only problem is the fogging. Not the mask, but the glasses.

i own a pair of i4s and depending on how big your frames are, i would say steer clear. Ive heard of great success with e-flex and e-vents though.

If You're Not in the Front, You're Doing it Wrong

Current Setup:
Empire Axe in Gun Metal Grey with Matching Freak Barrel Kit
Dye Rotor
Ninja 50/4500

I reccomend Jt Proflex's! I have seen countless people wearing them around my local field and they have a wide field of vision. Not to mention they're only about 50 bucks.

Also, I reccomend trying them on at a pro shop with your glasses on to really get a feel for them.

I have e-flexes that I cut out the foam on the sides. But u can pretty much cut out the foam for ur glasses on any mask.

To expand on what Panda said, if you can switch over to contact lenses, the next question would be, what would the best mask to fit your head! B)

However, if you can't get contacts AND if you can go to your nearest paintball store, try out all of their masks to see what would fit you and your glasses best. V-Force Grill and the JT Proflex/ Empire E-Flex would work well with glasses, just have to worry about your glasses fogging up and there are many ways on preventing that as well! (FogDoc and Fanz comes to mind)

Rub it in dish soap. I do it on my glasses and my mask, works great.

If you have smaller framed glasses then most masks should work. If you have a pair of goofy hipster glasses then just buy contacts or new glasses.

My personal favorite mask is the jt proflex. Its very comfortable and has arguably the best ventilation in a mask on the market today.

I've always used JT Spectras. I can't stand wearing contacts so I've had to deal with the same thing. I've only had problems with the glasses fogging, never the goggles. The frames really do make the difference though. I've actually taken my mask with me to the eye doctor when I get new glasses to make sure they fit.

LOL no Save Phace is horrible for glasses.
Okay masks, hard plastic and will never get bounces.
Uncomfortable, but hey it's low-profile?

Events, Proflexes, and i4s worked well, but my old style sly's pressed them too close to my face. I would not go with save Phace.
