Lens Colours

Goggles come in a variety of lens colours as well as styles. Use this part of the guide to give you an idea of which lens colours will work best for your swimming needs.


Clear lenses offer a like for like vision which prevents colours from becoming distorted. They provide you with a natural light to your eyes making them ideal for low light or overcast, dark conditions. theSwimmingShop recommends clear (or lightly tinted eg smoke) lenses for indoor swimming


Mirrored lenses help to reduce glare in very bright conditions by reflecting light away from the eyes. They are also a popular option for competitive swimmers as their opponents cannot see their eyes! theSwimmingShop recommends mirrored lenses for use in indoor or outdoor swimming and all forms of competitive swimming


Smoke lenses are great for swimmers who regularly swim in very bright light conditions and offer a similar feel as sunglasses. They also help to enhance contrasts without distorting real colours. theSwimmingShop recommends for outdoor use and particularly in sunny conditions but most smoked lenses are sufficiently clear to also allow use indoors


Amber lenses are a great all-rounder option for use in changing light conditions, offering clearer vision in the water. In low light conditions the amber lens helps to make vision clearer and crisper then reduces glare in brighter conditions. theSwimmingShop recommends for swimming indoor and out, in all light conditions

BLUE AND VIOLET (Pink/Purple) Lens

Blue and violet lenses offer a protection from potential glare in low to moderate light conditions. They are also a fun option for children while still offering protection. theSwimmingShop recommends for use low to moderate light conditions in/outdoors and for children
