Life long glasses wearer here.  I still had to take my glasses off to put on and remove a modular helmet.   Back to full face. It was nice to drink a soda at a gas station though.

You're doing something wrong.  Do you need a lesson on this?

My wifes Neotec was stolen in Colorado last September.  We grabbed a GMax from a local dealer which got her home, but it doesn't really work for her.

Fast forward to today and we're at Morton's BMW open house... guess what she bought....

Nice, I almost buzzed over there today...
Show up on time, do your best and don't grumble about the outcome.

I've tried modulars and none of them have made me really happy. That includes a Schuberth C1 and C2, a Nolan N103(??), and a Caberg toy flip-up (v., v. cool silvered visors but maybe worthless as a helmet). The flip-up part was OK but the noise level was ridiculous. I currently alternate between a Schuberth S1 and a Shoei GT-Air. I can't decide which I like more.

Anyway, although the flip up part has its value, it's never really offered any great gains. Putting any of them one wasn't much different than a full helmet. As for chatting with someone, I use a Sena 20S. Double click the little green button on the bottom of the mount and I hear ambient sounds. Including yakking people.

Totaled up: meh, not worth the cost. YMMV
