Goggleyed is a recently established business set up in 2010 by two friends, based in the Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire.
The idea of the business came about when one of our group, a keen swimmer with shortsighted vision, was finding it increasingly difficult to read the signage and recognise other people at the pool. He then took it upon himself to investigate the availability of prescription goggles and as a result he discovered a variety of products already in the market place. His job as a purchasing manager for a well known company led him to be convinced, however, that a product of similar quality could be sourced at a more affordable price.
A decision was made to take on the task of finding prescription swimming goggles that would be fit for purpose but less expensive than similar items on sale at that time. Thankfully we succeeded and came up with a product that has proved to meet the individual needs of the swimmer at an affordable price.
We are delighted to be able to say that we have supplied in excess of 10,000 pairs of Goggles to thousands of satisfied customers home & abroad.
In 2012, following many enquiries from long sighted swimmers, we introduced a range of positive lenses to meet their needs.
