Swimming with Corrective Lenses

When it comes to swimming, people who need corrective lenses tend to be at a disadvantage. Wearing glasses while swimming is not an option and swimming with contacts should be avoided if possible. It’s not recommended to swim while wearing contact lenses because water can be home to countless viruses and microbes. Swimming with contacts can lead to bacterial eye infections. It can also cause irritation and sight-threatening conditions such as a corneal ulcer.

If you do choose to swim wearing contact lenses, it is recommended to use daily disposable lenses because they can be thrown away after swimming. However, an even better alternative, is using goggles with corrective lenses. Water Gear features a variety of lenses that can be purchased according to your prescription eliminating the need to wear contacts underwater.

They have Optica Anti-Fog goggles available in Smoke or Clear, and Diopter Corrective Lens Goggles in Smoke or Clear. The Optica Anti-Fog goggles feature high-grade optical corrective lenses, a universal no-leak silicone seal fit, and a split silicone headband. They can even be worn for competitions. ┬áThe Diopter Corrective lenses also feature high-grade optical corrective lenses. They’re low profile racing lenses with a silicone gasket seal and a dual silicone headband for a secure fit.
