Ocean swim goggles? Allergic to Speedo foam

Post by Max P. Och » Sat, 13 Jul 1996 04:00:00


I'm looking for any info on how to get my hands on new Ocean goggles.  
Unfortunately, I suspect they're out of business.  The *** on the
speedo goggles gives an amazing rash.

Information?  Suggestions?

Max, I used to get a rash from Speedo goggles, but it seems
that the newer ones say "hypoallergenic".  I haven't gotten a
rash from them in about 10 years.  How old are yours?  Deb

If you can find them, you might try the old "Swedish" goggles, without
any foam whatsoever.  I suspect these are still available as some people
really loved them (others hated them, few were indifferent).  You may
decide they are uncomfortable, or need a week or so to get used to them.
If you haven't tried them they were usually quite inexpensive ($4/pair
or so) if you can find them.

I have recently started swimming on a regular basis and had a heck of a time
with goggles. I have found the TYR goggles to be the best with no leakage or
rash.
