Can you snorkel if you wear glasses?

Can you go snorkeling if you wear glasses?

There’s a significant number of you out there wearing glasses, and a question we get asked a lot is whether you can wear glasses while snorkelling. As dreamy as that may be, the short answer is that unfortunately no, you cannot wear glasses while snorkelling. The simple reason is that the earpieces of your glasses will break the silicon seal of the mask, allowing water to leak through.

That said, it does not at all mean that people who wear glasses cannot go snorkelling! There are a number of options out there for you spectacled beings who want to enjoy a good ol’ snorkel. In this article we’ll talk about your options when it comes to snorkelling if you wear glasses.

The power of water

First things first, we’ve gotta explain the miraculous power of water. Water magnifies images by about 25%, meaning that things will naturally appear larger and closer when you’re underwater. And when sunlight passes through the glass lens of your mask, it diverges, also making images appear larger.

So basically, if your vision issues are only mild, then you won’t even have to worry about a thing. Just go snorkelling. How’s that for a little science lesson? Now, if you’ve got stronger vision issues then this might not work for you. Not to worry, let’s get into some other options for bespectacled snorkellers.

Can you wear glasses in the swimming pool?

If you’re one of the lucky people who has four eyes instead of two, you might be wondering if you can take all four of those eyes into the swimming pool. While it’s easy enough to do laps with your eyes closed, it’s also a good idea to know where you’re going in a swimming pool – considering you’re sharing it with lots of other people.

How many people dream of snorkelling but don't feel comfortable wearing a snorkel mask?

"I'm not leaving my room without the mask. The full face snorkeling mask from Australia is comfortable and fit me perfectly! Love how easy it is to breath out your nose and mouth when you snorkeling and even has earplugs!"

“The mask include GOPRO mounts, so you can easily film and photograph underwater scenery! I highly recommend especially to people who have a fear of snorkeling! This mask is really easy to use and is safe!” said @lud.around. “I can’t wait for my next trip with my new mask!”

What customers are saying about us…

“Awesome set.

Loved the complete set. I even used the waterproof phone pouch to take photos and videos underwater. It made my Fiji experience so much better than using the free snorkel set that hurt your face after 2hours and leaving a sun/mask mark. The ninja leaves no marks and gives great vision under water in comparison. It did take some getting used to but it definitely paid off! Only frustration is that the tightening straps are quite basic; they should be much simpler to loosen and tighten both in and out of water.” – Jock

Bloody love this!

Never snorkelled in my life. Petrified of putting my head under water. But now my neck is bad - if I don't alter the way I swim - then no more swimming for me. This has opened 'a whole new world' - (haha -that songs stuck in your head now) - to me. I'm just using my ninja gear in my gym outdoor pool atm. My legs are getting so strong - and my lungs too - as I'm doing some great breathing. I have huge surgery coming up soon - and i believe this is allowing me to get to a great level of fitness - in preparation. Honestly - i can't go on enough about this product enough. My friend bought a cheaper version. She's given it away already... say no more 🤿🤿🤿
