Spending time in the water is difficult when you don't have perfect 20/20 vision. Glasses fog up and contact lenses don't react well with chlorine, so you may have to manage without, which can be problematic if you are extremely short or long-sighted. But there is a simple solution in the form of prescription goggles.
Prescription goggles are perfect for anyone who would rather not wear their glasses in the pool and for anyone who doesn't want to risk losing a contact lens in the water. Optical goggles look just like regular swim goggles, but instead of clear or coloured lenses, they come with prescription lenses to help you see.
We stock a wide range of well-known brands of prescription swimming goggles, including:
Comfortable prescription goggles are available for both long-sighted and short-sighted people. Choose from our selection of ‘off the peg' prescription swim goggles from popular brand names such as Sutton Swimwear, Optoplast and Speedo. We also stock a selection of custom made optical swimming goggles for people with more complex prescriptions.
Different prescription goggles are available to correct long and short-sightedness. You can even have different powered lenses for each eye if necessary. All of our prescription goggles are fitted with comfortable silicon seals to prevent leakage and a soft silicon head strap to ensure your goggles stay firmly in place, whether you are swimming laps or playing with the kids.
Prescription goggles are available in a wide range of different colours and styles. Cheaper optical swim goggles are great for occasional use in the pool, but if you are a keen swimmer, check out the Aquasee or Gator competition range. We also stock Sutton Swimwear Mirror goggles with mirrored tinted lenses for open water swimming or triathlons.
