Just had to share this simple fix for my new Goggles  I'm 65 years old and long sighted.  My prescription lenses are +6.25.  I was surprised to find that I could wear the googles comfortably with my own spectacles but as expected something had to be done to get the focus right.  I went to the the pound shop and bought 4 pairs of reading glasses (for 4 UK pounds).  I then removed them in turn and fixed them inside the goggles (see photo) using double sided spongy tape.  This fixes the lenses very firmaly and they are not going anywhere.  I finaly found that the +4 reader lenses where perfect.  I now have the perfect setup.  I wear the goggles with my glasses and leave the lenses stuck in place.  This means that when I flip up the goggles can still see and dont have to put on or take of any specs.  Very happy bunny now :-)

Went out today in the freezing cold with my Mavic pro and it works great.  I also have a P4 and see no reason why that shouldnt be great too.

The double sided stick tape is about 1.5 to 2mm thick.  Oh and I forgot to mention the IPD adjusters still work unimpeded.

Peviously I used the Headplay with lenses from focus fixers.com and that works OK too.

You'll have to send that into Blue Peter, they're doing a sixtieth year special limited badge

A simple but effective solution.

I bought some 3d printed off ebay, i find they are very close to my eyes, pretty much touching, this idea may very well be worth exploring, thank you....

While I'm all for folks coming up with their own solutions to things, such as what the OP has done...I own a pair of focus-fixers lenses and they work great.  The lenses fit well in the Goggles and they improve my ability to see in a huge way.  I highly recommend them, for anyone interested in getting a set.  Oh, and they come with a very nice storage case for when they are not in use. They get two thumbs up from me
