Being a bit short sighted makes it a bit of a nightmare at the pool. How many times have you accidentally gone into the wrong changing rooms, pushed the wrong child into the pool, or stared inappropriately at someone in their bikini who wasn't your wife?

Fear no more, these (quite awesome) Swans goggles are available in a large range of prescriptions to suit even the most optically challenged, transforming your enjoyment of the swimming baths.

On a more serious note...I have used these for swimming & triathlons for a year now and they are much better then the cheapie Chinese jobs you get on Amazon & eBay for £20. Much more comfortable and an amazing fit from one of the world's most established brands (even if you have never heard of them). The best thing is that each individual component is replaceable so bay a spare strap and some de-fog spray and these will keep you going to ages.

Blurb:

Fitted with high quality polycarbonate lenses, with UV protection and antifog coating.Individual lens for both left and right sides are available; -1.5, -2.0, -2.5, -3.0, -3.5, -4.0, -4.5, -5.0, -5.5, -6.0, -7.0 and -8.0.

The additional comfort and protection of the double gasket makes it ideal for longer swims, both indoor and outdoor. The replaceable gaskets and straps will help to ensure your Optical goggles last as long as possible.

I like watersports
Still probably cheaper than your opticians, though I have also bought from GoggleEyed previously.... and they are about £15 delivered... goggleyed.co.uk/ - whether these are the Amazon/ebay you mention, though I have praise for them....
Admittedly not the exact product, though an alternative that has made a difference whilst swimming.

Yeah, these are the ones I started with a couple of years ago. Back then you could pick them up for a tenner. I went through a couple of pairs as they broke after a while and I found the nose bridge to be quite painful after 25 minutes. Still have a set as a backup.

Asda opticians do prescription googles for less than £20
Which de-fog spray do you recommend please.

To be fair, I've never had that problem......I did get a good beating when the letter S fell of my Speedo swimming shorts though!

Great deal. Not tried the Speedo ones myself but worth a punt at that price!
I got mine at Tesco for about £12 I think, they're perfectly good goggles. Can't imagine needing to pay over three times more.
Are these better than the ones you can get from eBay or amazon for about £6? you cannot get mixed prescriptions in those so I just bought 2 pairs and mixed them up. so 2 pairs for £12.

Helpful comment. I didn't realise prescription gogs could be bought at such a low price. Any problems with fogging? Is the quality good for prolonged usage? I'd prefer to buy from an optician for advice because I use varifocals and am not sure what prescription I'd need for swimming, facial recognition and clock watching!
I cant get sensible priced as i need prisms, in both lenses was told it would be over £100 so swim in glasses instead.

How does that work underwater?

For scuba diving I always used Sea Drops, available from eBay , Amazon etc. Never, ever fogs up. Should be the same for goggles.

These aren't over three times more and are much better quality. I used to have the cheap ones but they don't fit well for longer durations and have durability issues.

So that's Sea Drops, a duck on a plug, a remote control thing for my central heating, prescription goggles and a monster box of Ferrero Rocher, all bargains that I didn't realise I needed in 2016.Thanks to HUKD oO
prescription-swimming-goggles.co.uk/swi…tml

I always use these goggles, they are £27 but have a range from +6.00 to -10.00

They also sell other makes which start from £16, plus diving masks and anti fog spray / general swimming items

Actually yes!
I had some from Tesco last year, they cost about a tenner. I swim most weekends, so was keen to try themy. They were OK, but not great, they misted up after every length of the pool. I then bought this actual brand for my holiday and couldnt believe how much better they were. Highly Recommend :-)
The Tesco ones aren't anti-fog and they're only whole diopters, so if your eyes are different you'd need to buy two pairs and mix them.
They're quite comfortable and reasonably water tight, with different sets of nose pieces.
I don't go swimming more than once or twice a month, and if I did and if my vision correction was more complex then I'd probably have to consider a more sophisticated solution like this.
Competitive Masters Swimmers and I bought some Swans prescription goggles a few months back. Really like them and its great being able to see the clock again in training.

Thinking about buying a pair for racing so when I finish I can actually look up and see my time!
Sorry to take the thread on a potential tangent, but does anybody have a recommended place / brand for prescription scuba masks

Thanks Mark

Sea Drops are not recommended for goggles, because you don't want to get it in your eyes.
