NEWSFLASH! Prescription swim goggles available!! I've made inquiries & sourced an optometrist able to provide these. (Lenses should be claimable via Medical Aid)
Please emai me if u are interested with the following: Full Name: 1SOMS RaceNo : Sphere Cylinder Axis Add Prism OD (Right) - - - - - OS (Left) - - - - - Prescription Date : - - PD:
I will accumulate the requests and pass these on to the optometrist. While the goggles are unlikely to be claimable from Medical Aid the prescription lenses can be. The goggles are a tad pricier than those in the sports store but I did find them to be a comfortable fit.
