Barracuda Prescription Information
Available with custom ground prescription lenses or with standard distance correction lenses (same power both eyes ranging from -1.00 to -4.00 in 1.00 steps, and -4.50 to -8.00 in -0.50 steps) Price shown is for the complete goggle with step diopter lenses installed. For custom made goggles (corrects for astigmatism out of range powers) Email or call for custom quote. (prices start at $180 with custom made goggles) Note: We recommend that you order the non-prescription goggle first to try for fit/leaking as custom made goggles are non-refundable.
The FR means the fog resistant version. It is a lower grade polycarbonate lens that has a low grade fog coating put on so the optics are not as great (like a lower end swim goggle). The CR-39 is optical grade plastic so it has better optics. This is good if you are sensitive to distortions in lenses. They come with a bottle a defogger that you just need to put on before every swim.
They come one size only. The nose bridge is adjustable.

If not, this goggle only comes in minus powers so to do plus, you'd have to do custom made which would start at about $260 for this prescription depending on what lens options you do. by Sameh Fakhouri
