Swimming Goggles and Masks
Swimming is a sport that gives an amazing experience of underwater as well as the joy of floating. When going underwater, you need to make sure your eyes are well insulated from the water to be able to see better. Swimming Goggles or Masks are used to see clear and fell safe underwater and sharpen the swimmer’s vision and keep the eyes safer while the swimmer swims, snorkel or explore underwater. When a swimmer uses swimming goggles or masks, they will have some air in-between the cornea of their eyes and the glass of the goggle or masks which will keep the eye protected. That’s why swimming goggles or masks help you feel exactly like on the ground and help you see things clearly underwater.
At Decathlon, we provide a wide range of swimming goggles depending on the level of swimming and the requirement of the swimmer.
We have a variety of bright coloured, watertight styles that offer clear vision, or fogged or mirrored options. We also have created self-fit designs that can be adapted for short-sighted swimmers with corrective lenses or prescriptions.
Here is a perfect guide to know about the swimming goggles and masks at decathlon:
There are 2 sizes of swimming goggles or masks depending on your face structure. If you have a wide face, you can choose the L size and if you have a small face, you can choose size S. While buying the swimming goggles or masks, put on the swimming goggles or masks on your eyes without the straps and press it on your skin and if you feel a suction effect, it is the right size of swimming goggle or mask for you.
