Goggles are one of the most important items in a swim kit. Whether you are a seasoned swimmer or a fairweather splasher, goggles will provide many benefits.
In children, this benefit is undoubtedly protection from the harsh chemicals in the swimming pool water. Chlorine has a knack of stinging eyes even after you have come out of the pool. Wearing a comfortable pair of well-fitting goggles will stop the water getting into eyes, alleviate irritation and prolong pool time.
For more advanced swimmers the benefits extend to providing clearer vision under water, meaning you won’t need to refocus constantly and strain your eyes. Consider where you will be using the goggles, open water swimming may require a more advanced goggle which provides peripheral vision, for example.
Splash About has taken this into consideration and we have developed a range of goggles that we believe cover all these aspects, at a reasonable price, using the high-quality materials you expect from us. Our Splash About range caters for children from 2-6 years and our new brand Get Soaked provides goggles for those age 6 to adult.
