I have deep eye sockets and found the mask-type goggles were harder to get a good fit with. The Seal mask left me with a painful red mark over the bridge of my nose, as I had to tighten it a lot to keep it from leaking.
A goggle with an adjustable nose bridge might be the best bet. If this person hasn't tried Speedo Hydrospex, get him/her to try a pair. They seem to fit a lot of people who have trouble finding a good fit with swim goggles.
