HOW TO FIND GOGGLES THAT FIT With so many different shaped eyes out there, how do you find goggles that fit? In this video, I’ll cover goggle basics and discuss different goggle features. Most goggles are designed to fit within your eye’s socket. If the eye piece is too large, it won’t get a good seal. Every time you wiggle your eyebrow or move your cheek, the goggles will move or shift. If the nose piece is too wide, water will leak in here. If the nose piece is too narrow, the goggles will pinch your nose and water will leak in here. That’s why goggles come in many different shapes and sizes. Goggles that fit your eyes properly will create a seal even without the strap on. However, with this next pair, the nose piece is too narrow for me, and they won’t stay on. Next, we will review different goggle features. We will take closer look at the Eye Piece, Nose Piece and Straps. While you may not see a huge difference between this adult pair of goggles on the left and kid’s pair on the right, There will generally be a big difference in comfort and fit. While my daughter may be smiling here, she was adamant that this pair of goggles felt weird. The eye piece is just too big for her face. If the eye piece doesn’t fit right, it won’t matter how tight you make the straps. Some goggles come with a non-adjustable nose piece like the pair on the left. If they fit, (it’s) great. If not, you may want to go with the pair that you can adjust. Watch here as I tighten the nose piece. By doing this, I’m bringing the goggles closer together. However, if you tighten it all the way, sometimes the nose piece will dig into your nose. If this happens, you can trim the nose piece with a pair of scissors. Please note, though, this cannot be undone. Some goggles come with different size nose pieces to use. A little adjustment to the nose piece can make a big difference in the comfort and performance of your goggles. While I certainly survived as a child with goggles that had single strap, Goggles with a split or double strap do have their advantages. Goggles with a single strap will tend to slide down below your child’s ears more often. Whereas goggles with a split strap or double strap will stay in place better. I hope this video helps you find the right pair of goggles for you or your child.
