Also known as corrective goggles, prescription goggles refer to goggles with prescription lenses. Most of the traditional goggles are non-prescription goggles. They are just created for eye protection during sports. However, people with myopia can not get vision correction from non-prescription goggles. For these people, prescription goggle provides the proper solution.  Wearing prescription sports goggles during activities can get good vision as well as ensured safety.

Sports activities that require you to wear goggles always need 100% attention and clear vision, such as motorcycling and skiing. Prescription goggles allow people who need vision correction to safely perform acts, otherwise eye injuries may happen. Before invention of the prescription goggle, people must wear regular correction eyeglasses or contacts and goggles to achieve both the above purposes. In this ways, their eyeglasses may sometimes get misplaced. Prescription sports goggles just offer more convenient and effective solution. In addition, prescription goggles sharpen much of the clarity that can be lost between two separate lenses. While ensuring safety, these prescription sports goggles still offer clarity as normal correction eyeglasses.

By sports type, prescription goggles also have different categories, such as skiing prescription goggle, swimming prescription goggle, motorcycle prescription goggle, prescription shooting goggles and so on. All these activities require both clear vision for good performance and top priority safety. Among them, swimming prescription goggles are most widely used.

As mentioned before, not all prescription goggles are used for outdoor sports. But with the more intensifying harmful UV rays, prescription sports goggles are recommended to apply UV protection.
