General points 

  • Sighted swimming goggles are useful for pool as well as sea use.
  • Since these googles are available in one single power for each pair , what we recommend for you if you have different powers in each eye is to purchase 2 pairs . We can then interchange the lenses according to the powers of your eyes’ prescription.  This will leave you with a spare pair. so for example if your prescription is Right eye -5.00D and Left eye -4.00D ,  you can buy 2 pairs of swimming goggles , 1 set of  -5.00D  and 1  set of – 4.00D. We then change and set the lenses for you according to your prescription.
  • In order to look after your swimming goggles, rinse them will with tap water after each use and store them in their storage box. Do not rub the inside of the lenses. The lenses have an anti fog coating which can be ruined by rubbing. Do not leave them in heat .
  • The swimming goggles  do not correct astigmatism.  So the degree of astigmatism you have will determine whether our off the shelf swimming goggles are suitable for you. Generally for astigmatism below 2.00 D , you can use the off the shelf swimming goggles. For anything greater than that you may have to opt for custom made swimming goggles.
  • Swimming Goggles are also available without prescription in Plano and can be used simply as eye protection. Protection from the pool chlorine or sea salt.
