Prescription swimming goggles in place of prescription sports goggles watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hey all.

    In light of the recent end to the NFL season and the start of playoffs, I've become very interested in taking up American Football at my uni.

    However... I have rather poor eyesight (-6.25 in each eye to be precise) so I constantly wear glasses and playing without glasses is not an option. I have contacts but I barely wear them and by no means do I enjoy them.

    I started looking into prescription sports goggles but prices start at something like £90, however that's when I had the idea of prescription swimming goggles which you can get for under £30.

    So my question is, does anyone know if it would be able to use swimming goggles in place of sports goggles? Is there really much of a difference? In American football they would be protected by direct impacts by helmets and face guards so a super strong material isn't needed anyway.

    anyone else had experience with this?

    Cheers <3
