asian fit ballistic glasses?

Just spent 100 bucks on revision sawflys to find out they don't fit my giant asian head with tiny asian nose.

bummer.

Are there any asian fit glasses out there that are suitable for use in airsoft? I already have goggles, that is not a problem. I am looking for a sunglass that can double as ballistic eyewear and have interchangeable lenses.

The sad part is the only thing that seems available is from oakley, at 2-3x the price of revision/ess ballistic glasses. And they don't carry military certification, only ansi z87. Does anyone know of any alternatives?

I have a pair of sawflys and they fit my asian head like a dream. ESS ICE or Crossbows might do the trick. Revision also makes the sawflys in a large size as well.

these are the large size sawflys

I tried the ICE and they did the exact same thing. Basically I would have to use the retention strap to keep them on my face, but that creates 2 problems... the nose piece doesn't sit on my nose, and there is a sizeable gap at the bridge of the nose. The lens is basically resting on my face at this point, creating a seal and causing fogging, made worse if I blink or squint, as my eyelids and cheeks will hit the lens and smudge, making it just as bad as fog.. and I haven't even started running around yet.

Yeah, I really wish there were more options to fit "Asian" faces. I see a lot of great eye protection out there but I know that 90% won't fit my face properly.

Arena FlakJaks have a kind of foam around them that contours to your face, and they fit my Asian Face perfectly, even with glasses on.

Some say that they're cheap and unreliable, but I've taken quite a bit of shots to the eye and they've done the job every time.

I have asian fit ess strykers, they work fine. I want sunglasses though, since I wear contacts with the goggles now, I would like the option of being able to wear nice sunglasses when I wear contacts either playing or driving or just being outdoors.
