The buyer has a specified time frame, and three attempts to enter the correct code. If the code is correct, the bank approves the transaction. However, if the confirmation code is not entered correctly after three attempts, the bankcard will be blocked for all sites that use 3D Secure.

SWIMMING GOOGLES

Are mirrored goggles more fragile than other types of goggles?

No, all Aquasphere mirrored swim goggles lenses are scratch-resistant.

Do mirrored goggles fog less than other types of goggles?

No, all of our swim goggles have durable anti-fog properties, so you never lose sight of your objective. Depending on the lens, the anti-fog will be either a lens coating (like on our polycarbonate lenses) or a core property of the material (like in our Plexisol lenses).

How do you clean mirrored goggles?

As a rule of thumb, always rinse your swim goggles with warm, freshwater, especially if you were swimming in the ocean. Leftover saltwater can negatively impact the lifespan of your polarized and mirrored lenses.

Lay them flat to dry away from direct sunlight.

We recommend avoiding using any cloth, even microfiber, to clean the lens as it will likely damage its anti-fog treatment. Instead, if you need to remove something, gently use the pad of your finger.

Why are my goggles fogging up?

Fogging could occur due to several reasons:

Wear & Tear

  • A fit issue or an issue with the straps being too tight or too loose.
  • Condensation forming on the inside of the lenses. (perspiration or water vapor from your skin)
  • The Anti-Fog treatments become less effective over-time
  • The Anti-Fog treatment has come off or barely has any
  • Too much moisture being produced so the Anti-Fog cannot handle it all

Some Solutions for Fogging are as follows:

  • Put the goggles on while both you and the goggles are dry
  • Use an additional Anti-Fog Solution

Eagle Lens Guide

A typical prescription is written:

 

sphere

cylinder

axis

R

-3.00

-0.5

x180

L

-3.50

-1.00

x180

To work out which lenses you need, you’ll need to look at the first 2 aspects of your prescription.

sphere - is the main part of your prescription and will have a ‘–’ for short-sightedness or a ‘+’ for long-sightedness. If you have a ‘+’ then unfortunately our lenses will not work for you

cylinder - refers to the amount of astigmatism you have.

The diopter you order should be based on the amount of short-sightedness you have.

Our optical lenses don’t correct astigmatism but if it is less than 2.00 diopters and not the majority of correction, add half of this number to work out your power (examples below).

Here are some examples of how to work out the correct power for you:

sphere

cylinder

axis

recommended lens

-3.00

-1.00

x90

(-3.00 plus -0.50) = -3.50

-3.00

+1.00

x90

(-3.00 plus +0.50) = -2.50

Our lenses come in 0.5 steps from -0.5 to -6.0 so you may have to select the nearest power. It’s better to under-correct than over-correct. 

If you need any assistance please contact us with your prescription and we’ll do our best to help
