Say goodbye to blurry vision when swimming. If you wear eyeglasses or contact lenses, prescription swimming goggles will bring new found joy and excitement underwater. In addition, they also help you steer clear of any hazards. Swimming is great for sport and recreation hence if you need prescription lenses to see clearly we have an excellent solution for you whenever you want to swim. Traditional swimming goggles are designed for those who don’t need visual correction. However, in your situation you need prescription swimming glasses with the right diopter lenses. Optic kit is a product we have perfected to transform those traditional swimming goggles to highly accurate, crystal clear prescription optical goggles at an affordable price.

Why use prescription goggles?

When you are swimming it’s important to have the correct visual judgment of position of objects in your vicinity. What you don’t want is to bump into other swimmers or knock your head on the walls of the pool. Optic kit is a stick on lens which enables you to see as clearly as you would do with your usual prescription glasses. The kit comes as positive or negative diopter lenses which match your prescription glasses thus making it a perfect substitute when swimming. Coupled with a blue or yellow tint on the swimming goggles, you see clearly without any color distortion.

Eye protection

There are other risks other than hitting objects or other swimmers in the pool. Although chlorine in the water kills any infections, it irritates the eyes leading to blood shot eyes after swimming. By wearing prescription swimming goggles you protect your eyes from the chlorine as they create a seal around your eyes. When you put on the swimming goggles you don’t have to over tighten the straps as the material around the eyes is designed to conform to the facial contours. This allows a seal to be made easily thus protecting your eyes. Optic kit, a set of corrective lenses for swimming goggles, allows you to see your surroundings in great detail while your eyes are protected. Never use contact lenses underwater as there is increased risk of infection. Simply use the stick-on lenses and your swimming goggles are transformed into a perfect swimming accessory.

How light behaves in water

Light behaves differently when you are swimming underwater than in the air. Objects appear larger than they are when in water. Consequently, this can affect hand-eye coordination but thanks to a unique type of prescription goggles for swimming, there is a solution. These swimming goggles have a space within the goggles so that light traverses from water to air before hitting the corrective lenses. This pocket of air in front of your eyes enables light rays to be focused more accurately. It becomes easy to see more clearly under water with corrected vision.
