My wife had a nasty fall from her bike some years ago and despite wearing a (standard style) helmet suffered facial injuries including the loss of her 2 front teeth. As a consequence she was very nervous about getting back on a bike. We initially solved this by utilising a full face (bmx style) helmet and my wife riding on the rear of our tandem. As her confidence has returned, she is now back onto a solo bike but has found the lack of visibility quite awkward, even dangerous (obviously this was not a problem on the tandem).
I have searched for a solution to this problem (face protection vs visibility) to no avail - can anyone out there advise me.
