You might find yourself asking, “Why should I use Rec Specs?”
Rec Specs is the world's leading brand of high quality protective eyewear designed specifically for sporting applications. Most Rec Specs are tested to withstand the ASTM F803 impact resistant standards for racquetball, basketball, handball, squash, paddleball, and tennis when fitted with 3 mm polycarbonate lenses. Other Rec Specs designs provide use during activities in the water for things like swimming and jet skiing: to winter sports like skiing and snowboarding. Please refer to our descriptions below to find the correct model for you and the standards for the particular sport it is approved for.
Although Rec Specs sports eyewear is intended to offer the best protection available, there is always the possibility that the wearer may sustain an eye or facial injury due to severe impact or because of the nature of the athletic activity. If the eye protector incurs a severe impact or is neglected or misused, the degree of eye protection provided may be reduced. In any case, the frame must be replaced. Failure to do so may result in permanent eye injury.
THE DESIGNER, DISPENSER (A Sight for Sport Eyes), MANUFACTURER, AND LIBERTY OPTICAL MFG. CO. INC. DO NOT CLAIM THAT REC SPECS SPORTS EYEWEAR IS UNBREAKABLE OR ELIMINATES THE POSSIBILITY OF EYE OR FACIAL INJURY.

Sizes are stated in millimeters. The first number is the distance across one lens in millimeters. The second number is the distance between the two lenses stated in millimeters. Therefore, to get the total distance measurement across the frame, double the first number and add the second.
An easier way of measuring is if you currently wear glasses, check the size of your current glasses (usually written across the bridge or on the temple of the frame). You will want your goggle to be a little larger than your regular glasses to maximize your peripheral vision.
