Frequently Asked Questions
How do prescription ski goggles work?
Prescription goggles use an insert, glazed with your prescription lenses, which securely clips into the goggle canopy and lets you take to the hill with safe, comfortable corrective vision. It's that simple!
Why bother with the insert at all? Can't you just put the prescription on the goggle lens?
The goggles are fitted with a single, large lens. No matter what kind of eyewear you're wearing, it needs two lenses to correct each eye properly. Two eyes unfortunately means two lenses!
Why not cut two apertures out of the goggle lens and replace them with prescription lenses?
The main reasons are cost and practicality. Goggle lenses typically sit so far from the eyes that they can't deliver accurate vision in an effective field of view without being impractically large. This option would also be prohibitively expensive, with every goggle model needing a different precision glazing solution owing to the massive array of shapes and sizes on the market. Finally, almost our entire range of ski goggles uses dual layer lenses which wouldn't be possible to replicate with prescrition glazing, meaning no insulation and more distracting lens fogging!
What lenses do you fit in the prescription ski goggle insert?
We offer a range of lens packages which cater to most demands and budgets including polycarbonate, anti-fog and bifocal lenses with a helpful reading segment. Here's a breakdown of our insert lens options.
How does the insert look when fitted to the goggles? Is it a style compromise?
Ski goggle inserts put some people off because they worry that the insert will be visible from the outside. If you've just shelled out for one of the hottest looks of the season, we can't blame you for staying style-conscious! You may take your finished product out of the box and balk at the sight of a garish insert through the lens. To put your mind at ease we've tried to illustrate how your goggles will look different depending on whether, and where, the insert is worn.
I already own a pair of ski goggles. Can I just buy the prescription insert?
If you're unsure whether your goggles are compatible with one of our inserts, get in touch and we'll be able to help. We may have tested your model in the past and have the result on record. Alternatively you can send your goggles to us so we can test the fit ourselves!

Can I wear my prescription eyeglasses under my ski goggles?
Yes! We stock a wide range of goggles from most major manufacturers which have designed OTG (over-the-glasses) ski goggles which are able to accommodate eyeglasses under the goggles thanks to the use of frame and foam cutaways. Click here to browse our full selection of OTG goggles.
