View Full Version : Does anyone know where to find

Okay, so a couple of months ago I started noticing that I couldn't read the pace clock even when I was in lane 1 and it was about 4 feet from me. My optical lenses have become kinda scratched and I decided it was time to get new ones, but to be prudent I had my eyes checked before ordering a completely new pair of goggles. Guess what? My old goggles were a -7.5 diopter. I'm now -9.75 I've looked at several online swim shops and the strongest they go is -8. Does anyone know where I can get a -9.5 without having the lense custom ground?

Thank you! Laineybug

www.kastawayswimwear.com has a -9 in the Speedo Aqua Racer Optical Goggle.

Have you tried just using contacts while using regular goggles? That is what I do and I haven't had any problems.

Good luck!

I agree, LASIK!!!! I was a -6.5 and am now 11 years post op and still 20/18.

I've never had a pair of contacts that give me good vision so I've given up on them, and as for Lasik, sigh, I wish! I'm not a canidate--thin corneas. Thank you for the suggestions. Lainey
