Pretty cool idea.

I solved the problem a little differently, I went to Home Depot and bought some Drawer Bumper Cabinet Door Protectors - I find the smallest ones. I like the the wide flat ones the best. They have pretty effective adhesive. I throw them away after a day of shooting.

If it is extra humid or I am sweating a lot I simply adhere one of the door protectors into the bridge of the glasses. It holds the glasses away from my face just enough to circulate air. I have picked up different sizes (they are very cheap). Bigger ones for worse conditions. I have not been able to tell the difference in visibility as they move the lens from my eye very little from the intended position. It works for me. If you are at a all day match then on me it starts to red mark between the eyes. Me I don’t care. I went to a three day match and my wife asked me “what happened between your eyes”? It was fine a day later.
