Goggle lenses can be Spherical, Cylindrical, or Toric and the shape of the lens can have a huge impact on the performance of the goggle. Not only does the shape of the lens affect your look on the slopes, it also has an influence on the optical clarity, anti-fog capability, and peripheral views.
A cylindrical goggle is vertically flat and offers a lower profile shape. Cylindrical lenses are the original goggle lens shape and offer great optical clarity and wall-to-wall vision. The stylish flatter shape stays close to the face to minimise distortion.
Toric lenses offer the best of both worlds with enhanced peripheral vision and vertical field of view. This shape maximizes the goggles vent volume for ultimate optical clarity and performance.
Brands have worked hard to create lenses that enhance contrast, fine tune colours and improve depth perception to give you greater detail in a wider range of conditions than ever before. Select a brand below.
Custom made prescription inserts fit into the goggle to provide ultimate corrective vision on the slopes. Unfortunately the technology isn't there for directly-glazed ski goggles right now but prescription inserts are the perfect solution!
The key feature in prescription goggles is the use of prescription inserts, this is a separate frame that fits into the framework of the goggle.
It's all about inserts for goggles. We often get asked about directly glazed goggles, but although the technology is being developed as we speak, it's just not there yet. Prescription inserts are the best solution but don't worry, with the right lens in place and when you're out on the slopes, the inserts are hardly visible.
We have teamed up with Essilor and Shamir, two of the UK's leading optical labs, to offer a selection of high-quality lens packages:
