Hello, everyone. I've got a bit of a quandry on my hands. I'm on the high side of 40 and don't know how to swim . I'm seriously thinking I need to learn but one of the things holding me back (aside from the rather (un)healthy phobia) is my eyes.
Though I'm legally blind, I can get around just fine so long as I have my glasses on. With out them, I have to either slow way down or completely stop whatever activity I may be doing. Combine that with the fact my tear ducts don't work like they should- it takes me like 5 minutes for my vision to come back to any sense of normalcy whenever I get splashed in the pool.
Which brings me to my main question- how effective are swim goggles at keeping water away from the eyes? If they can keep the water from making contact with my eyes and I can towel off my face/hair before removing them, that would be great. If not, then I'm not sure I'm even going to be able to attempt it.
