Sport Eyes

There are countless things to keep in mind when determining which skiing or snowboarding goggles to use on the slopes. To be certain you have an optimal experience, we have compiled  a guide that will assist you in finding the best goggles for your favorite winter sports. This guide will give you a step-by-step guide to selecting the perfect goggles for you. 

Size

There are many different things to consider when determining the perfect size for your goggles. Comfort on the slopes is essential for a fun day on the mountain. For goggles to fit perfectly, there are many aspects that must be perfect including the strap, helmet compatibility, and the foam inside of the goggles that provide a cushion. When choosing the strap for your goggles, you might want to select one that is adjustable. Generally, the straps are made from a silicon material that can fit around the helmet with ease. Your goggles must also be compatible with your helmet. It is a good idea to choose goggles with vents. This makes them far more comfortable because the warm air rises up through the vents, minimizing fog. Finally, the foam on the goggles need to be fitted well to complete the seal around the perimeter of the goggles which keeps moisture from getting behind your eyewear. 

Interchangeable Lenses

Predicting the weather while you are on the mountain is impossible, so it is vital that you are ready for any situation. One way you can be prepared is by purchasing snow goggles that are all-weather friendly. There are goggles that have interchangeable lenses that adapt to the weather and give you the peace of mind that you can be safe no matter what Mother Nature throws at you. It might also be smart to choose a pair of goggles with polarized lenses to keep the sun out of your eyes.

Prescription Snow Goggles

If you need to wear prescription glasses, it can be uncomfortable and even dangerous to wear them underneath your goggles. So, it would be a good idea to pay a little extra for goggles with your prescription. Having 20/20 vision is vital when flying down the mountainside. It can’t be understated how important it is to see potential obstacles in your path. Make the safe choice and pick goggles that contain your prescription.
