MelissaWhen shopping for swimming goggles, make sure they form a good seal to avoid water containing pool chemicals or infection-causing bacteria from getting in your eyes. This is particularly true if you wear contact lenses while swimming, because bacteria can adhere to the lenses, further increasing your risk for infection.Proper-fitting swimming goggles should fit against the bony socket around the eye, not too close to the eye where they could affect blood circulation. Many styles of swimming goggles are available as prescription eyewear.If you plan on swimming outdoors, look for swimming goggles that block 100 percent of the sun's harmful UV rays.01/30/2015

Swimmers and water polo players keep chlorinated swimming pool water out of their eyes by wearing swim goggles. There are a wide range of styles and sizes of goggles and it is important to select model that suits you best.02/02/2015
charmed83Selecting goggles can be a hard thing. However, here are some key factors worth considering when shopping for your next pair of goggles. Goggles come in all shapes and sizes. Generally, I like to classify goggles as "small" and "large".These classifications reflect both socket size and lens size. Socket size indicates the size of the goggle lens. Some goggles are what I consider "small socket." Some swimmers do not prefer small socket goggles because they can be harsh on the orbital bone. On the other hand, "large socket" goggles, because they don't fit into your eye socket, rely on some kind of suction device. My personal preference is a "small socket" goggle because the "large socket" goggles can feel a bit bulky. But, I encourage you to try both small and large socket goggles before making a final decision.Lens size is the size of the lens through which the swimmer sees. A larger lens allows the swimmer to see more; larger lenses allow for a wide-angle view or even "natural" vision. By contrast, small lenses allow the swimmer to "put the blinders on" and, perhaps, focus on their race by limiting their field of vision.03/18/2015
