    Been trying all day to call my optitions, but line is busy , so asking here

    I have a very high prescription (hardly see a thing without my glasses on)
    yep im short sighted


    How do i go about getting some prescription goggles for swimming and are these going to be a lot of money?

    quick google takes me some shops where they just want the power figure in each eye (but nothing else, which seems odd)

    I had generic prescription goggles when I was -7.5 / - 6.5 and they were "ok".

    Got my eyes lasered as it was much easier ;)
