Are there goggles for water polo that correct vision?

However, most such goggles do not have lenses that can be replaced by prescription lenses. For prescription swim goggles, it is usually best to contact an optician who works for an eye doctor or for an optometrist. Such opticians are used to doing custom work; but in all likelihood, the goggles will have to be specially ordered.

Polycarbonate lenses are very difficult to break and are available in all glasses prescriptions.
