Choosing the Right Swimming Goggle: Lens Type & Lens Color
Depending on where one is swimming, it may make sense to select different tints for lenses. One who swims predominantly in an indoor pool will be better off with clear lenses since most indoor pools are not too bright and not too dark. Tinted lenses in an indoor pool may make the pool appear to be darker. Also, one who swims in a pool or body of water in the night time may also be better off with swimming goggles or a swimming mask with clear lenses.
Contrarily, one who swims outside in the sunlight may prefer swimming goggles or a swimming mask that has tinted lenses (or mirrored lenses) which will provide protection against the bright rays of the sun. Also, if competing in a triathlon, many triathletes have enough trouble as it is sighting buoys that are on the course, and tinted lenses are helpful for those early morning swim legs that are known for blinding sun light which can impair one's ability to sight buoys.
