Terry's Googles
 
I am currently recovering from a burst blood vessel in my eye, probably from swim googles that fit too tight and too near the eye. I would like to switch to googles that are much larger, sort of like a snorkel mask, that seal wider around the face rather than close to the eyes. In many of Terry's videos, he is wearing goggles like this. Does anyone know what brand of goggles Terry wore, or can you direct me to a brand of goggles that I am looking for? I am sort of "dead in the water" until I solve this issue, and I am missing my laps. Thanks in advance!

Aquasphere Seal goggles
 
I see these have anti-fog, is spit and rinse still the best way to clear fog when it does happen? Or by rubbing the interior of the lense does one damage the anti-fog properties?

thanks

Iíve had the Aquasphere Seal Mask. Like most good quality swim goggles / masks, they have an anti-fog coating; but the anti-fog coating will eventually wear off. When you start using it, just rinse it off with fresh water after each use. The anti-fog coating should last for a few months. When you start to notice the mask start to get foggy, itís time to apply either spit or, my preference, Johnson Baby Shampoo. I keep a trial size bottle (.99Ę) Johnson Baby Shampoo in my swim bag. I apply the shampoo on both sides of the lens and rinse. The kids in my pool are always asking to borrow my bottle of Johnson Baby Shampoo to coat their swim goggles / mask.

Spitting is cheaper, but some people might find it objectionable if youíre using a big load of spit in a public swimming pool.

Hello,

if my masks start to fog, I put a mixture of 40%-50% Babyshampoo (no special brand) and rest water into a tiny spray can. Works best... but these tiny cans where stolen sometimes. Now I printed a small sticker and pasted on it: "Muttis Spucke", means "Mommy's Spit"... the can lasts for two years now :-)... If I offer to others, sometimes I hear: That's not really true? ... answering with a long smile... before telling the ingrediants-secret....

Best regards,
Werner

thanks folks, I have just ordered a pair of the Aquasphere Seal goggles for sea swimming.
We have had an influx of Lions Mane jellyfish in Galway Bay recently so looking for more visibility in the water to avoid these!
