Is it important to wear swim goggles? Yes, protecting your eyes is the main purpose of goggles. Chemicals are added to swimming pool water to maintain its cleanliness and hygienic conditions. Chlorine is the most commonly used chemical that often irritates the eyes. Red and itchy eyes are a common reaction to chlorine. In addition to injuring your eyes, seawater can infect you with bacteria and viruses and cause cornea swelling.
For contact lenses, it is not recommended to wear contact lenses in the water.
Wearing contact lenses could run the risk of getting bacteria in your eyes, which can lead to an infection.
Chlorine and salt water can dry out your contacts, making them extremely difficult to remove. If you do decide to wear contacts, please consider wearing goggles to help protect your eyes.
Using swim goggles is the best way to protect your eyes from all the chemicals in the swimming pool. It will enhance visibility and makes it comfortable and much easier to move your body underwater.
