I have a very high prescription (+ 8.5) with astigmatism in both eyes. I board vision impaired and basically use appropriate lenses for the light situation and thats the best I can do since I stopped wearing contacts. Will the Bolle goggles w/inserts work for someone with my type of vision problem?

Unfortunately your prescription is too high for the Bolle prescription inserts. The lenses will flatten the adapter and it won't fit into goggles right. It is hard to find prescription goggles to accommodate your RX. The only frame I could recommend is called G 102. These goggles can be used for skiing. They offer good protection from wind and address fogging issues. This eyewear does not require prescription inserts. We can prescriptionize the lenses.
