Before we get into tips for choosing the right pair, let’s cover a few common questions about Rx ski goggles.


How Do Prescription Ski Goggles Work?

Prescription ski goggles have improved over time from having embedded Rx lenses to a new and much better way: prescription goggle inserts. Before, goggle makers attached the Rx lenses to the goggle shield. This quickly became tiresome and costly for both manufacturers and customers. If the Rx wasn’t done just right, the lenses had to be remade. Plus, you’d have to buy a whole new set if you updated your prescription. As you could imagine, these original designs had a high return rate. You might still be able to find them buried on the internet, but these bulky models have been mostly phased out.


Rx inserts are the easiest, most effective way to transform any goggle model into a prescription ski goggle. A prescription insert is a two-lens piece that’s held together by a clear, flexible frame. It fits right into the chassis of any goggle model or size, and can be tailor-made to fit just about any prescription. We haven’t met a goggle that can’t be fitted yet! SportRx offers one of the most complete collections of goggle inserts on the market. With over two dozen styles, our Sports Opticians are experts at matching your goggles with the perfect insert. We can even match one to your existing snow goggles!


At SportRx, we believe your vision should never limit your pursuits. If you’re ready to upgrade your goggles with your Rx, head over to our prescription inserts page to get started. If you’re in the market for new prescription snow goggles, check out our tips for choosing the right pair below.


Prescription Snow Goggles Online

There are a lot of features to choose from when looking for prescription ski goggles. If you’re not sure where to start, here’s a few tips for narrowing your search.


Rx Ski Goggles for Men, Women, & Kids

SportRx has prescription ski goggles for men, women, and kids. However, it’s helpful to keep in mind that the vast majority of snow goggles are unisex! They have many of the same features, colorways, and sizing—even when separated by category. You may find larger sizes in men’s, or the perfect fit in a kid-friendly model. Goggle sizing is flexible and forgiving, and most people fit into a medium. Your helmet size is usually a great indicator of what you need.


One key difference between adult and kid models is the lens type. At SportRx, a large part of our curated snow goggle collection includes mold-injected vs. stamped lenses. Mold-injection is a lens creation method that fills a mold with the lens material, versus cutting the lens from a sheet of material and bending it into shape. Stamped lenses cost less, but mold-injected lenses deliver superior clarity and optics.


Choosing Goggle Lenses

Once you’ve found your size, your goggle lenses are the next feature to consider—starting with the shape. There are three main shapes to choose from, and they each have different benefits.


Cylindrical lenses curve from left to right only. They have excellent peripheral views, a low-profile design that sits closer to the face, and a classic, retro style that appeals to many. However, less space between the lens and your face can cause condensation (fogging). Because it has the most flat surface area, it can also be prone to glare. Mirrored or polarized treatments can help counteract this. Another thing to note is if the lens is stamped, there’s a greater chance of warped views or distortion. We recommend finding a mold-injected lens for this reason. One last perk is that cylindrical lenses tend to cost less than their spherical or toric counterparts.


Spherical lenses curve in all directions like a bubble. Their goal is to follow the natural shape of your eye, which makes them one of the most optically-true lens shapes. Without any flat areas, there’s almost no risk of distortion and only the promise of clear views. This is also what makes it excellent for deflecting glare. And since it sits well away from the face, this shape is least likely to fog. The main potential downside of spherical lenses is their size; they protrude the most out of any lens shape. This is a simple matter of preference and not a dealbreaker for everyone. If you’re okay with the size and style, spherical lenses have a lot of great benefits.


Toric lenses combine the best parts of cylindrical and spherical shapes. They have the same left-to-right curvature as spherical lenses, but less curve from top to bottom. This results in a more balanced volume and surface area that resists fog and glare, while still being optically-true. They have similar optics as spherical shapes, but with a modern aesthetic appeal. Even as the newest shape of the three, Toric lenses have exploded in popularity and are fairly easy to find. However, due to their quality and style, they also tend to be more expensive than spherical and cylindrical shapes.


Remember, prescription goggle inserts work with any lens shape! So you can instantly convert your favorite pair into prescription ski goggles.


More Features on Prescription Snowboard Goggles

With your size and lens shape down, there are a few more features to choose from when selecting your prescription snowboard goggles.


Lens technology uses colors, tints, mirrors, and other treatments to maximize your optical experience in different lighting and weather conditions. The right combination works wonders for boosting your contrast and visibility on the mountain. Many well-known brands have their own signature lens tech, and each lineup has unique options to choose from. To make it easy, SportRx has ski goggle lens color guides to help you choose the right color for your ride. Check out a few of them below!


  • Oakley PRIZM™ Snow Lenses Guide
  • SMITH ChromoPop™ Goggle Lens Guide
  • Anon Snow Lens Guide

  • Interchangeable lens systems allow you to switch between different lenses on the same goggle model. Not all snow goggles offer this, so it’s optional. But if you’re the type who likes variety and having just the right lens for the job, models with interchangeable lenses are a game-changer. Magnets are a popular mechanism, but some snow goggles also include pins, levers, or sliding rail locks for securing the lens. Others have a traditional system, which requires a bit more time and elbow grease but also brings the price down. Get what works best for your needs.


    Bonus features for prescription snowboard goggles aren’t required, but can seriously boost your comfort, efficiency, and enjoyment. Features like Anon’s Magnetic Facemask Integration (MFI) use magnets to attach a gaiter-like mask to your goggles for streamlined protection from cold and wind. Lots of prescription ski goggle brands also offer low-bridge fit goggles that are tailored to fit faces with a low nose bridge for a better seal against the elements. You can also find certain models with unique lens modifications to increase peripheral views even more than the usual shapes. Examples of this are the SMITH™ 4D Mag’s BirdsEye vision and the new Anon M5 flat toric lens shape. But‌ the most sought-after feature is a bonus lens with your goggle purchase. Brands note when a model includes an extra lens, and it's often for low-light or variable conditions.


    While many features on your snow goggles are optional, quality and value shouldn’t be! That’s why at SportRx, we’ve done the vetting for you and have a highly-curated selection. The goggles you see below have all passed rigorous critique by seasoned Sports Opticians who are also avid snow-goers like you. We’re happy to give our honest thoughts and help you find the most excellent prescription snow goggles for your adventures.

Simply enter your benefits card info as you would a regular credit card at checkout. For more info on what’s covered under your benefits, check out our blog How to Use Your FSA & HSA For Glasses & More.
