Why do you need goggles for swimming in a swimming pool is it because of chlorine to save your eyes?
I am a new swimmer i need the answer because my coach says it's of no use
You will see better !!! As a swimmer you have to be able to see all other swimmers swimming with you at same line , and you have to be able to see the black line on the ground of pool also in order to see your direction !!! Besides of all that , eyes are most sensitive part of body for any infections or viruses ! So you have to protect your eyes all the time Source(s): Swimming instructor
sort of. it's painful to open your eyes underwater because of the chlorine. that and because of the way water refracts light, makes it very difficult for us to see underwater. goggles create an air space between our eyes and water, allowing us to see underwater.
however, if you're a competitive swimmer, goggles aren't really that necessary. after all, what are you going to see underwater in a swimming pool if you're swimming fast?
helps if you wear contacts....
it depends on if your eyes can handle the water. Most people can't see under the water. I'M a swimmer and i can see under water. It is a nice world under their.
Your coach is an idiot and you dont mainly use goggles to protect your eyes. Its mainly for seeing purposes. have you ever tried to look in water w/out goggles? Its like trying to watch tv or something with high prescription glasses, It hurts and its really blurry. goggles are like normal viewing but underwater.
So in conclusion your coach is wrong and I'm wondering if they ever swam before.
chlorine usually stings your eyes a little, and its blurry under water. goggles help you keep water out of your eyes and when you are swimming, the water sometimes flips your eyelids up and it kind of hurts.
