Welcome to the world of prescription swimming goggles


Welcome to our first blog at prescription swimming goggles. We are a family run business that was founded in 2004 and incorporated in 2006. We are owned by the founders, James and Michelle Sutton and have 4 ladies working here, Tracy, Aimee, Julie and Suzanne. We started life in James and Michelle’s front room of their home before we realised we had a good idea that was really taking off and needed more space to hold stock, and some staff! 

We moved over the road to an office until we could no longer keep our ever growing stock in the house and after a couple of years we moved to a small shop where we could stock most of our goggles and the other products we specialise in. Please visit www.natorigin.co.uk and www.butterflies-eyecare.co.uk to find out more. After spending three years happily growing there, we have made the big leap to bigger premises in September this year. We are now nestled in the idyllic Cotswold countryside in a converted barn in the hamlet of Warkworth, Oxfordshire. 

  • James Sutton BSc MCOptom studied optometry at the University of Wales and has 20 years’ experience performing eye tests in opticians.
  • Michelle Sutton BPharm MRPharmS trained at the School of Pharmacy at London University and has 20 years’ experience in community pharmacy. She also won the Banbury Business Woman of the Year Award 2011 for an Established Business.

Our ladies are always available to answer any queries and help you to work out your prescription. As James is a qualified optician, he is always on hand to offer advice with more complex prescriptions. As well as offering prescription advice and practical tips, we also offer a more personal service, as many of us are keen swimmers and divers and can offer first hand recommendations. 

Well, now you know a little bit about us, we hope you will visit our blog again to learn more about the world of swimming, snorkelling and diving with prescription goggles and dive masks. We will also keep you up to date with any tips, special offers and new products. 

Bye for now!
