Night Lenses – Swimming

No Contact Lenses – No Glasses – No Laser Surgery

Perfect vision for short sighted Swimmers – without glasses, day contact lenses or laser eye surgery

“I can open my eyes underwater when I go swimming!”

This is one of the most common answers to the question “What do you love most about night lenses?”.

If you love swimming or watersports, then night lenses just make sense … and glasses and day lenses, well, they don’t! If you speak to night lens wearers about this (there are a few below who can tell you this in their own words), they usually say that they find it odd that people who swim regularly or do watersports still stick with the hassles and issues of glasses and day lenses. Why not use night lenses, wake up, take the lens out and see perfectly all day without glasses or day lenses – and have the freedom and no hassles of swimming and watersports without anything on their face or in their eyes – and be able to open their eyes underwater!

In the pool
Imagine a world where for swimming you don’t have to buy prescription goggles, remember them, wear them, not see when you take them off to change or get fogged up, remember to take them with you or lose them in the house. Yes, they’re fine for charging up and down the lanes during your fitness regime, but they’re not very sociable for your dip after your workout with your friends or for a splash around in the pool with the kids. As for being a parent with kids in the pool, being able to see clearly is a must. Also … imagine being able to open your eyes underwater and see clearly!

On the beach
Imagine a world where you can surprise your child during sandcastle time, whip them up into your arms and run with them squealing their head off into the sea without having to worry about losing a lens in the sea, your glasses falling off or getting salt smears. Imagine not having to worry about sand behind your lens when the wind blows, stinging lenses from suncream sweat or if in glasses, slippage down the nose from sweat/suncream.

Night lens wearers don’t have any of this. It’s as simple as that really. Listen to the stories below.

Free your eyes.


If you compete at an elite, or high amateur level, the advantages of night lenses over day lenses are clear. Essentially you have the same lens routine – a daily insertion/removal – but having perfect sight with nothing in your eye to worry about when you train and compete can make the difference between wining and losing. Double World Champion Cat Morrison, Olympian Chris Walker-Hebborn are two of many who attribute part of their success down to night lenses and recommend all elite sports people to switch. “If you can use night lenses, as an elite performer, it doesn’t make sense to continue to use day lenses”

“In the semi-final of the European Championships my day lens folded in my eye under my goggles. A couple of times I lost one, or would race with only one eye in, which didn’t help. I have 52 seconds to prove a point. The last thing I want to panic about are my lenses. Night lenses are a game changer. I couldn’t imagine my life without them now”
Chris Walker-Hebborn, Olympic Silver and Commonwealth Gold medallist, swimmer
