Where to Buy Kids Prescription Goggles Online

Updated on March 21, 2014

Corrective Lenses Help Your Kids See Underwater

With a swimming pool in the backyard, my family spends a lot of time in the water each summer. It's easy to drop by Wal-Mart or the local pool supply store to pick up new goggles and masks for my son whenever the old ones wear out or are lost, but my four-year-old daughter has been wearing glasses since she was a year old, and corrective lenses are a necessity in the water, too. I can't just pick these up at the corner store. However, they are easy to find online. If you're looking for prescription swim goggles for kids, I hope you'll find this information helpful.

Where to Buy Kids Prescription Goggles for Swimming

Online stores selling glasses and contacts have goggles, too

When I first started shopping for kids prescription goggles online, I found a wide range of prices, from under $10 for clearance model with the same prescription strength in both lenses to over $100 for goggles customized for your own prescription. What I quickly discovered is that you can find affordable goggles if you need the same prescription for each eye.

Swim Outlet, for instance, is one place to shop. They sell Speedo Jr. Vanquisher goggles with prescription lenses that have the same eye power (from -1.5 to +8.0) in each lens. You'll pay less here than if you purchase the same products from the official Speedo site, but Speedo has a more complete selection. The benefit to shopping at Swim Outlet, however, is that you can also buy swimsuits, beach gear and more at the same time, and you'll get free shipping on orders of $75 or more. They also offer a low price guarantee, so you know you're getting the best price.

My daughter, unfortunately, doesn't have the same strength in each lens because one eye is much stronger than the other. If you're in the same boat and need to customize your kid's lenses for each eye, you'll pay more to find what you want online. I've seen sites selling goggles for more than $100 to get different strengths in each lens, but you don't need to spend that much.

AC Lens is a good place to find kids prescription goggles at reasonable prices. Look for the category link in the lower left column of their homepage. They have a better selection for adults, but they do carry kids goggles made by Hilco/Z Leader. These can be customized for each eye (from -1.5 to +8.0) and you can select either black or blue.

If you search online, you can also find other places that sell kids swimming goggles. Check prices before you buy and you should be able to get what you need at a price you can afford.

Happy swimming!
