Are you thinking your kid may perhaps excel at swimming if he got that additional googles?

Over 700 kids die every year as a result of drowning and there are good reasons why kids should wear goggles when they go for a swim session. The human eye does not see very well in the water because light refraction is significantly slower in the water, compared to in the air. The second benefit of wearing goggles is that chlorinated water is itchy and can leave the eyes of your kid red.
Here are things you should consider as you should for swim googles for kids:
- Comfort: Make sure the straps are not too tight. I recommend you go for goggles made with silicone gaskets and straps, which are comfortable at any age.
- Adjustable: Make sure the straps are adjustable to allow your kids to get better visibility/best visibility with a slight adjustment.
- Nature of eyes sight: There are prescription goggles that your kid should get if they need them.
- Fog: Get googles that will not have a fog that will make visibility hard. Make sure your brand has an anti-fog spray that will not wear off easily.
