Default Best glasses/googles for playing tennis?

Hey guys. New to the site here. I'm 22 and I've been playing tennis on and off since I was about 13 or 14. I wear glasses for nearsightedness, but usually only wear them when I'm driving or if I'm in school and I have to read the blackboard, etc. However, I've noticed my vision while playing tennis without my glasses is pretty terrible and has affected my game significantly.

Unfortunately, I'm not able to wear contact lenses. Can anyone suggest a good pair of sport glasses for playing tennis indoors and outdoors? I'm not looking for "sunglasses" but rather just a good pair of regular prescription eyeglasses that are maybe vented, so they don't fog up when I sweat while playing, and with a good grip.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I've played wearing Silhouette rimless titanium frames with silicone nose pieces with thinnest/lightest lenses available. There are no hinges therefore no screws to come loose. They're super light and stayed on pretty well. I've rock climbed with them too and they didn't fall off even when I was on overhangs. Warning, they're on the expensive side specially considering how little material is needed.
