Swimming optical goggles

So far couldn't find it in any sports shops in CH or DE. My old ones i was able to buy while on vacation in China. Where can I buy swimming goggles with optical strength? I'd appreciate some tips.

Re: Swimming optical goggles

I bought a pair for my mom from AquaGoggles. The price was reasonable and they do ship internationally. They are good quality and she is happy with them.

Keep in mind these goggles won't correct for astigmatism. You have to pay a bit more for ones that do that. Still, they are good enough for me to have a rough idea of where I'm going even if the depth perception is a tad off. (I bought mine at a local store in the U.S.)

I think they're based out of Luzern. Very happy with the goggles, just be careful with the lenses because they scratch easily.
