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.
