Both competitive and recreational swimmers are likely to spend more time
outdoors during the summer months. They also have to contend with the
intensity of the summer sun, an intensity that can negatively impact a
swimmer's vision both in and around the water. We all have only one set
of eyes, and it's important to take every precaution to protection them.
Wearing a quality pair of goggles every time you're in the water is strongly
recommended, whatever the water activity may be. Goggles provide a water
tight seal for hours on end, making it easier to see clearly and ensuring the
safety and protection of your eyes from the harmful elements and irritants
found in the water. Goggles also include quality protection from the harmful
rays of the sun, incorporating UVA/UVB protection features that are second to
none. And if you’re concerned about comfort, don’t be.
Components found in goggles today not only provide a water tight seal, they also
provide a comfortable fit you can rely on time and time again.
Increased glare is a factor all swimmers have to contend with in the pool and
the open water during the summer months, and it's a factor that can have a huge
impact on swimmers during a competition. The best way to combat the
negative effects of increased glare from the summer sun during competition is
with a pair of mirrored swim goggles. Mirrored lens goggles are
specifically designed to help reduce the glare associated with the reflection
of sunlight on the water, reducing eye strain and enhancing your vision in even
the most intense sunlight. And for the fashionistas, mirrored goggles
provide a sleek look that will keep you as cool in your mind as you feel you
need to be each time you put them on.
A number of manufacturers offer mirrored goggles, in a variety of styles and
designs suited for any competitive or recreational discipline, as an integral
part of their product lines. For speed in the pool, Speedo offers the
Liquid Storm Mirrored goggles. Ideally suited for racing, these goggles
showcase a hard frame that provides a water tight seal, a low-profile fit that
reduces drag and mirrored, wide angle lenses that reduce glare, enhance vision
clarity and provide increased peripheral vision capability that enables you to
keep an eye on the competition. For open water and triathlon use, Tyr offers
the Nest Pro Metallized goggles. Inspired by the bird nest design of the
Olympic Stadium in Beijing, Nest Pro Metallized goggles are quality performance
goggles with a high-tech design suitable for competition, training, triathlon
or open water use. These goggles incorporate a VTS (Varied Tensile
Strength) headstrap that combines with the TPR gasket/frame system to enhance
comfort, provide a water tight seal and conform to your head for a secure fit.
Nest Pro Metallized goggles are also comfortable, durable, and feature
mirrored, anti-fog lenses with wide angle vision capability and embedded
protection that reduces glare and enhances clarity whenever you're in the water.
Remember, it’s always safety first, especially where the eyes are
concerned. And if you’re looking for some mirrored goggles to enhance
