Swim Goggles for Deep Eye Sockets Quote | Reply

Any suggestions? I've tried pretty much everything in the Aquaspere line with no luck. Regular goggles usually feel like they're digging into my eyes. The swim masks can't keep out the water. Thanks for any suggestions!

Have you tried the Barracuda line? http://www.sporteyes.com/barracud.htm I use the B300. I probably tried every goggle or mask out there before this one and haven't switched in the last three years. Every other goggle or mask either leaked or felt like my eye balls were going to pop out of the socket. These have a slightly bigger footprint so they go around the bone structure and never leak for me and really are quite comfortable because the pressure is against the bone.

The Speedo Vanquishers work well for me.

TYR Socket Rockets are very similar to Swedes, except the edge is a hard rubber instead of plastic; i love them!!

If goggles feel like they're digging into your eyes, you're pulling the head strap too tight. Do a seal test for prospective goggles by taking them out of the box at the store, and pressing the eye cups firmly to your face. They fit right if you can feel them seal around your eyes for a couple of seconds. Then when you put them on in the water, go easy on the strap tension.

The nice thing about swedes and the like are that you can play with them until you get the length of the nose piece just right down to the milimeter, which does wonders for proper fit.

Blueseventy. I have as my wife calls it a "goggle museum." I have tried on numerous goggles that seem to fit properly at the store but leak like crazy in the pool. The Blueseventy goggles work great.
