Prescription Ski Goggles | Oakley – Adidas – Uvex – Julbo
Being able to understand the jargon used by manufactures will help you find the right goggles at the right price. How much should you spend? well like anything else you get what you pay for. Spend as much as you can afford but take into account how much you are going to use them. If you are going ski for the first time, don’t spend much at all. You can buy ski goggles under £10 and complete with prescription lenses for as little as £80 but as a basic you should buy a double lens goggle, which will help to prevent misting. Double lens goggles work much the same as a double glazed widow reducing condensation. The biggest factor of a goggle is the lens and how much light it stops or let through. We quote this as LA (light absorption) the amount of light the lens filters out. The higher the number the darker the lens, a good quality pair of sunglasses will stop 80% of light (LA 80). Many people will ski in sunglasses for good weather but for dull or white out condition use a low light ski goggle with an amber or yellow lens. For safety we recommend you wear a ski goggle for all weather conditions. In that case you will need 2 pair of goggle or goggles with interchangeable lens, tear-offs, a photochromic lens or LCD ski goggles. All our prescription goggles are helmet compatible.
