Sports Wear Frequently Asked Questions
Can a swimming goggle be corrected for seeing underwater?
We would normally glaze the IN AIR prescription. The purpose of corrective swimming goggles is, after all, to be able to move around the pool side and be aware of obsticles and other swimmers on the surface.
Can a swimming goggles be tinted?
Yes. When we supply Plastic prescription lenses to swimming goggles (excluding Aquasee) we can add a tint if required.
Which lens material should be used in goggles for racket sports?
The answer is polycarbonate. In the case of squash there is a specific British Standard BS 7930-1 and the use of polycarbonate is mandatory to meet its requirement. Where a goggle is supplied the insert can be glazed with plastic lenses as the front shield is supplied as standard in polycarbonate.
Can a diving mask be corrected for both distance and reading?
Yes. Using the custom bonded method we can fit both distance and reading segments to our masks (excluding Ultravision). This can be done in both positive and negative prescriptions.
