Barracuda H2Rx

The Barracuda H2RX Goggles provide near-sighted swimmers with high quality polished corrective lenses to ensure that each and every swim is as crystal clear as possible.

Corrective Lens Power

If you're required to wear corrective lenses outside the water, it makes absolutely no sense to deprive yourself while you're in the pool. Before prescription grade goggle lenses were available, swimmers weren't always treated to a 20/20 swim. But thanks to advances in research and production, corrective goggle lenses are widely available. The Barracuda H2RX Goggles aim to give each and every swimmer an individualized pair that will help him or her see as clearly as possible when at the pool. The prescription lenses are available in diopters ranging from -1.5 to -10.0. Unlike other models, such as Aqua Sphere Eagle Swim Goggles, which require swimmers to manually interchange corrective lens pieces, the Barracudas are pre-made with your prescription already permanently placed into the goggle frame.

Low Profile Frame

One of the best features of the Barracuda H2RX Goggle is that it features an extremely low profile frame for a prescription strength lens. The soft seal around the eye helps cushion the delicate skin, but remains streamline and tight fitting enough for an ensured leak free and comfortable fit. Because the pair can reduce as much drag as a competition specific goggle, the H2RX's are ideal both pool and open water use. In fact, their low profile and wide angled lenses make them great for triathletes. They'll help you clearly see the finish line, along with every stroke, peddle and step along the way. Keep your prescription goggle's lenses as clear as possible by pairing them with Barracuda's own Defogger. It's great at keeping all kinds of eyewear from fogging up.

Finding Your Diopter Strength

Although similar to your glasses prescription, swim goggle diopter lenses require a quick calculation to ensure that the proper strength is selected and post-swim headaches are avoided. Looking at your prescription, you'll want to locate the sphere and cylinder for each eye. Use the following formula to find the right diopter lens for you:

(1/2)(Cylinder) + Sphere = Diopter

Example: If your left eye (OS) has a sphere of -4.5 and a cylinder of +.25, your diopter strength would be as follows:

(1/2)(.25) + (-4.5) = -4.375

Remember: Water will refract light and correct vision a bit without any prescriptive power applied. With that in mind, if your calculation does not end with a .5, select a diopter strength that is one step lower than the outcome of your calculation. In the example above, with calculation of -4.375 you should order a -4.0, not -4.5 diopter strength. If you need help, please give us a call or open a chat session for guidance.

Additional Specs

While the eye pieces may not be interchangeable, Barracuda has fit the pair with three interchangeable nose pieces so that you can truly get a custom fit for your face shape. The three options are guaranteed to fit a wide range of facial bone structures. The pair is equipped with double adjusting straps, which help hold the goggle firmly in place. Barracuda has even thrown in a hard case to help keep the H2RX Goggles as thoroughly protected as possible. Each lens offers 100% UVA and UVB protection and the goggles are available in either a blue lens/blue frame model or smoke lens/black frame combo.

The AquaGear Opinion

The AquaGear testers strapped on a pair of the Barracuda prescription goggles and gave them a whirl around the pool. Swimmers that wore glasses or corrective lenses outside the water noted that the goggles provided accurate lens strength. Along with corrective 20/20 vision, the H2RX goggles gave swimmers excellent visual clarity. Testers remarked how comfortable they were to wear and that they were extremely low profile for prescription goggles. Besides the lens quality, swimmers also noted that the adjustable straps were simple to readjust, even while wearing.

The Bottom Line

If you need a little help seeing clearly in the pool and are tired of wasting time and money on goggles that just don't clear things up, then make the switch to the Barracuda H2RX Goggle and see what you've been missing.

They keep water out and they are pretty comfortable. However, they are so foggy that the script really doesn't matter. Hate that I paid more for this pair but they aren't as good as the less expensive brand I have used. : (

They are comfortable and keep the water out of my eyes. However, they fog up terribly. Since they fog up, the prescription is useless. :(

These fit very nice. They are very comfortable and can see clearly under water. They last about a swim season. This is our 3rd pair of these. Love them.

It spells comfort and clarity! Makes a world of difference to my swimming. Its my first pair of prescription googles and I wouldn't bother to try another brand.

Best swim goggles
Written by on August 13th

The item came as described by Aquagear. The delivery was on time and packaging was good. I highly recommend these swim goggles to those who are using prescription goggles for the first time. Very comfortable!

Great quality

Great product at an even greater price. I buy a pair for my off season swimming and then buy one more pair, tinted, for my open water season. Rx is spot on and the goggles stay fog free for the entire season. Comfortable fit around the eyes and excellent field of vision. I've been ordering from Aquagear for quite a while and have always been pleased with the products and delivery.

Good for open water swimming
Written by on June 24th

This is the only prescription goggle I've found that fits, and is comfortable enough for long distance swims. Have had good luck with vision and fog-free, but transport and store in it's packaging to protect the lens and coating.

Work Great

I do a lot of open water swimming. The correction works well for me when I am sighting. It would be nice to have a darker lens but that is a small price to pay to be able to see well.
