prescription swimming goggles - Our definition

prescription swimming goggles are swim goggles with corrective lenses that allow swimmers to see better in the water. With it, it is like swimming with glasses.

Nearsighted vs. Farsighted

For the moment, major manufacturers like Speedo and Tyr only make nearsighted swim goggles. The corrective lenses have negative (-) diopters. Negative prescription swimming goggles are for nearsighted swimmers.
Farsighted swim goggles aren't produced by these manufacturers. We notified them that there is a market for it, and customers are interested.

How to order your prescription swimming goggles

If you know a little math and have the prescription from you optometrist, it is very easy to determine your power. Take a look at your prescription for four numbers: the sphere (SPH) and cylinder (CYL) for each eye.

Sphere and Cylinder for each eye - Prescription Swim Goggles

Once you've located those numbers, use this formula:

(SPH) + 1/2(CYL) = Your Prescription

If we use the example in the prescription above, in the first eye we would have (+2.50) + 1/2(+1.00) = +3.00. In the second eye we would have (+1.75) + 1/2(+1.50) = +2.50. Remember that you must take into account negative values if you have them!

If you're not good at math, insert the numbers on your prescription below and the computer will figure it out for you! Be sure to do it once for each eye, and type in negatives if you have them.

Latest reviews about prescription swimming goggles


Reviewing: Speedo Deluxe Ventilator Mesh Bag

Good team mesh bag

JENNIFER H., EWING , NJ | May 15 2019

Haven't used them yet because they were just delivered but the seams and zippers are sturdy and it's a good size bag to hold all of our team equipment. The space on the front of the bag is large enough to have a logo put on it or there is also a space on the back to insert a name tag.

I prefer the polyester version, it lasts longer than the other blends of fabric. Fit as expected. A happy customer!


Reviewing: Nike Victory Color Block Brief Male

This is a great pair of Swim Briefs?

Juan C, Georgia | Apr 9 2019

I am someone who grew up wearing swim briefs to the lake and pool. And to this date I still do not like wearing board shorts, because they feel like wearing workout shorts. This briefs feel perfect overall. I will buy more in the future. I just wish they were a bit cheaper, but overall they are great to wear to the pool at the gym.


Reviewing: Speedo Solid Polyester Flyback Female



the leg elastic quits WAY before the rest of the suit:color, fit, fabric. If not for the elastic these suits would last 2-3 times as long. When the endurance suits first came out, this was not the case; so I do know how MUCH longer they could and should last.

What do I do if I have two different prescription?

This is a very common question and you have basically two choices. 1) you can choose brands like Aqua Sphere or View goggles that sell independent lenses. 2) For the brands that sell the complete goggles, most of customers actually purchase 2 pairs with different prescriptions, and then interchange the lenses.
