Swimming is a fun sport and very useful. It's one of the most intense exercises and uses almost every muscle. Swimming can lift our mood and reduce stress. It's a low-impact cardio workout that provides a full-body workout. It improves our sleep cycle and increases stamina. It helps maintain a healthy weight, heart, and lungs.

During the pandemic, everything stopped. People are not allowed to go out and do any work. Shops are closed, gyms, swimming pools, everything is out of bounds and people have to stay at home during the lockdown.

But as conditions improved, gyms and indoor pools reopened. Stores are open and people are taking care of their exercise and health. Here are some introductions about swimming goggles. To help you better choose the swimming goggles that suit you.

The benefits of swimming goggles

Goggles are a must-have in a swimmer's wardrobe. These goggles are specially designed for underwater viewing and also protect the eyes from chemicals such as salt and chlorine. These tight water cups protect our eyes by creating an air sac around the eye and keeping water out of the eye when swimming. There is a reason why goggles are recommended when swimming. The reason is:

Crystal clear vision - The waterproof design helps to confidently open your eyes while swimming and has crystal clear vision underwater. It's also good for those who swim in local pools. When one experiences clear vision, then it is easy to notice someone's leg or hand getting in the way while practicing.

Eye protection - Eyes are often red and itchy, it seems that one has too many sleepless nights. Our eyes may look red and itchy when swimming without goggles. Swimming pools are often filled with water, causing eye redness and irritation. But it's important to keep your pool clean and hygienic, and chlorine can do just that. Chlorine is bad for our eyes and can hurt our eyes. Wearing swimming goggles is the best and safest way to protect your eyes. People who use prescription glasses can also use prescription swimming goggles. Some goggles have UV protection to protect your eyes from sunburn.

Swimming is more fun - Wearing goggles and swimming underwater gives a different feel. Whether outdoors or in some local pools, the clear view underwater provides confidence in swimming. If one can gain enough confidence when swimming, one will feel safe and motivated. Goggles help the body move easily underwater.

Athletic appearance - We often wear sports glasses and sports prescription glasses for an athletic look. Exercising every day and getting a fit and healthy body is a dream for all of us. You can spruce up this look with swimming goggles!

How to remove swimming goggles from fogging?

It is often found that the swimming goggles fog up and the vision becomes blurred. Swimmers face obstacles when their goggles fog up. Glasses fog up for a reason. Let's find out why!

Air pressure inside swimming goggles increases due to increased body temperature. Due to further heating, sweating occurs around the eyes. Cold water outside the goggles will allow them to cool down. When they come into contact with each other, water droplets form, so people experience foggy glasses.

It is often said that when there is a problem, there is a solution. Some solutions are:

Try to buy good quality swimming goggles that are pre-treated with an anti-fog coating. It's important to take care of our eyes and focus on our work, and these anti-fog glasses will help to do just that.

Do not touch the lenses of the goggles with your hands. If we touch them with our hands, the anti-fog coating may corrode and lose effectiveness prematurely.

Use any anti-fog spray to restore the anti-fog coating in the lenses. It cannot always be used because one cannot stop swimming and use the spray. But instead, people can use this spray and can avoid fog in their glasses.

These are some solutions to the fog problem in swimming goggles. In addition to the anti-fog coating, an anti-scratch coating should also be used for better eye protection and worry-free swimming.

Exercise is a healthy lifestyle that people should try to participate in. When we talk about exercise, swimming plays an important role in a healthy and muscular lifestyle. Exercise can help us prevent many diseases and keep our muscles and bones strong. If you want to buy or customize swimming goggles, please contact us.
