Performance goggles typically have a low-profile design to reduce drag. Most have an anti-fog feature that works only if the goggles are cleaned and maintained after each swim, so be sure to store them in a protective case between use. Peripheral vision with these goggles is typically limited, which isn’t ideal for all race scenarios. The metallized versions are excellent for blocking UV rays.
