Got some sports glasses from specsavers, which do the trick but being closer to the face and more wrap-around they mist up more.  I once had some “smart” cycle glasses with inserts and a choice of lenses; awful. They would mist up on both sides of the inserts and both sides of the lenses, I have bad vision but had to take them off riding in fog. Windrams I think thy were called.

I've got optilabs flow frames. Vaguely wraparound but not aggressively so with a lens cutaway to allow for ventilation. Might well get a pair with a plain grey frame for regular civilian wear.

(Potentially) good news for speccy bargain hunters - PX are getting a load more prescription inserts in stock as per https://www.facebook.com/planetxbikes/posts/3234486849901150

Might be worth investigating. I have a set of carnac multiwhatsits which go dark in the sun and clear at night which I highly recommend but they're not seemingly stocking them right now. They're basically these but with posher lenses https://www.planetx.co.uk/i/q/CLCARSF2/carnac-rsf-v2-sunglasses
