Join Sports Optician Tyler as he introduces the best prescription swimming goggles! Read on to learn more about the frames.
Whether you’re swimming laps or playing in the shallow end, you want clear visibility and an enjoyable experience. A comfortable strap helps secure your goggles, while an adjustable or interchangeable nose bridge allows you to achieve the best fit and proper seal around your eyes. A perfect seal not only keeps water out, but also alleviates unwanted pressure on your nose.
The right lenses for your swimming goggles will provide you with the best aquatic optical experience. For Rx-wearers, prescription lenses mean not worrying about taking out contacts and storing them, allowing for a better and easier swimming session. Lens coatings and features, like anti-fog and polarization, keep the lenses clear and block glare bouncing off the water.

From Olympic swimmers to casual water aerobic participants, all prescription-wearers want to enjoy their favorite activity without their eyewear needs getting in the way. Continue reading for our top picks!

The nose bridge includes an adjustability feature, meaning the goggles will have a tailor-made fit. Constructed from lightweight material, the Rec Specs goggles are easy and effortless to wear. Whether your kiddo is a mermaid, doing underwater handstands, or swimming through the water like a shark, the Shark K is the perfect pair of swim goggles for your little one.

Next up is another Rec Specs frame! At a slightly bigger size than the Shark K, the Shark goggles are a medium fit and great for men and women alike. To secure the swimming goggles, a silicone strap comfortably adheres them to your head and prevents the goggles from slipping off.
