my prescription for spectacle is
right -5 sph -2 cyl 10 axis
left -5 sph -1.5 cyl 170 axis

and my prescription for contact lense is
right -5 sph -1.75 cyl 10 axis
left -5 sph -1.25 cyl 170 axis

what should my prescription be for swimming googles ?
can i use -5.5 sph for both eyes ?

this way i can save cost and buy only one pair of googles
but will this strain the eyes and cause any problems?

or should i use -6.0 sph for both eyes ?
i swim occasionally only on weekends

please let me know
thanks

My calculated diopters are -3.75 and -3.375. Without buying two pair and sifting lenses, should I go with -3.5 (which is slightly high for one eye) or -3.0 (which is down for both eyes)?

Will these also help the swimmer see clearer when looking outside of the pool such as the wall clock or looking at the lifeguard/coach or do these only correct vision underwater?

My rx is
OD -500 -0.75 x 015

Hi ! my son is in high school competitive swimming team and swims daily for 2 hours.

His prescription is
OD -5 x -1.75 x 010
OS -6.75 x -2.00 x 165

His complains are that his eye goggles (at present) get loose and foggy and leaky after first few laps every day and he has to take breaks to adjust them.
Can you please advice on buying the right ones and avoiding goggle breaks.
Thanks in advance

can you help me calculate which goggles to get?
i have a pretty bad astigmatism does that effect it?

Hi Shelly,
The diopter strength for the OD (right eye) is -5.75 and rounding down will be -5.5. The strength for the OS (left eye) is -5.5. The cylinder, which is the second set of numbers, means the amount of lens power for astigmatism so this is taking into consideration your astigmatism. Your strength will be -5.5 for each eye. If you have further questions, feel free to reach us anytime!

Hello - like many others here - I just want to be sure I have this right for my son:
RIGHT eye: -5.25 sphere -1.50 Cylinder = -6.0 goggle lens?
LEFT eye: -5.25 sphere -1.25 Cylinder = -5.5 goggle lens?

Does this mean I should get 2 of a goggle style that I can swap out lenses on?
Thanks for your help

Hi Karen,
Yes, that information is correct. We suggest you purchase two pairs of goggles that have the option to interchange the lens. For example, the Speedo Vanquisher Optical Goggle and the Sporti Antifog S2 Optical Goggle. If you have any questions, feel free to reach us anytime!

I am looking for small tight prescription swim glasses that I can wear for swim. What would my diopter strength be:

Right Eye: SPH: -3.5, CYL: -1.0, AXIS: 180
Left Eye: SPH: -3.00, CYL: -0.75, AXIS: 170

Thank you!
swimoutlet.com

Hi Satsu,
The diopter strength for the right eye is -4.0. The left eye is -3.375 but we suggest you round down to -3.0. A general rule of thumb when choosing a diopter lens is to round down — rather than up — to the prescription that most closely matches your own. This places less strain on your eyes. Since you have two different diopter strengths, we suggest you purchase two pairs of goggles and interchange the lens. For example, the Speedo Vanquisher Optical Goggle will allow to change the lens. If you have further questions, feel free to reach us anytime!

Hi Glenda,
We do offer one positive prescription goggle. A general rule of thumb when choosing a diopter lens is to round down — rather than up — to the prescription that most closely matches your own. This places less strain on your eyes. We offer the Sporti Antifog Positive Optical Goggle in a positive 3.0. If you have further questions, feel free to reach us anytime!

Hi Bri,
The right eye diopter strength is 0.125 and left eye is -0.875. Unfortunately, the lowest diopter strength we carry is a -1.5. Please check with your optometrist if they are offering goggles with this diopter strength. If you have any questions, feel free to reach us anytime!

Hi,
My problem is trying to see my heart rate watch. I am somewhat farsighted due to cataract surgery. My prescription is:
R eye sphere -0.25 cylinder --0.50
L eye sphere + 1.25, cylinder -1.50

Can you help?
swimoutlet.com

Hi April,
Given the formula to determine the diopter strength you need: 1/2 of the cylinder + sphere = diopter strength. The diopter strength for the right eye is -0.5 and 0.5 on the left eye. Unfortunately, our prescription goggles are either negative or positive and don't offer a mix of negative and positive in a pair. Since you have a negative on the right eye and a positive on the left eye, we suggest you contact your optometrist for custom swim goggles. If you have any questions, feel free to reach us anytime!

Seems I am a bit confused by the algorithm- perhaps you can help

R +.5 (Sphere) -.75 (Cyl) 90 (Axis)

L +.75 (Sphere) -.75 (Cyl) 70 (Axis)

I keep getting a really low positive number (.125 for right and .375 for left) and just want to check to make sure I'm getting this correct

Hi,
My daughter is 11 years. Her eye sight is a little complicated;
Right Eye: Sphere: -3.50; Cylinder: -3.00, Axis: 04
Left Eye: Sphere: -3.50, Cylinder: -3.00, Axis: 178

I need help with my daughter's prescription please. She is with swim league, practices 3 times a week, and swim meets at least 2 a month. Kindly recommend brand and prescription for her.

We really appreciate your help.

Hi Barti,
Given the formula, her diopter strength is -5.0 for both eyes. I would recommend the following two pairs:

Speedo Jr. Vanquisher Optical Goggle [For ages 8+, great option if she needs a smaller frame]

Speedo Vanquisher Optical Goggle [Great option, if she is already wearing adult size frames]

If you have further questions, feel free to reach us anytime!

Hi Sharon,
Your son's diopter strength is Right: -6.375 and Left: -6.625. I would suggest getting 2 pairs ( one in -6.0 and one in -6.5) and interchange the lenses for two custom pairs. Please let us know if you have any questions. Have a great day!

Hi Melissa,
Your son's diopter strength is RT: -0.75 and LT: -1.5. Prescription goggles start at -1.5 so I would suggest getting one pair at -1.5 or opting for regular goggles. I would recommend you double check with your optometrist. Please let us know if you have any questions. Have a great day!
