I know there was a little discussion about swim goggles in the post on when the glasses come off, but I just got this question from Heidi and wanted to put it out there and see if there were any other thoughts or experiences. -Ann Z
Have you heard from any parents re: swimming w/kids in glasses or learned about prescription swim goggles? Bennett’s 4.5 years old now and we’ve not done swim lessons since I’ve been having babies two of the last three summers, but now this boy needs some swim lessons. 🙂 But I’m not sure how to handle it with the glasses and the sites I explored online only have prescriptions to -8/+8 for swim goggles. We’re -12 & -8 so I’m not sure what we’ll do…
Anyone have experience with swim goggles for their kids, particularly with high prescriptions?
Update: I was just sent this link to prescription goggles by @nicolemarr via Twitter (um, by the way, Little Four Eyes is on Twitter, user name is, unsurprisingly littlefoureyes). The goggles are not specifically child-sized, but they do offer the option of small bridge, the prescription range for these are +4 to -10, so a larger range than some.
