Forgan’s latest prescription swim mask ensures ‘Ffreedom’ for serious swimmers

October 2013

Optical expert Bob Forgan, is adding another product to his growing range of prescription sports eyewear, with the launch of Aquaviz® Pro which is targeted at Triathletes, open water and competitive pool swimmers.

As the Triathlon trend continues to grow, Aquaviz® Pro now offers competitive outdoor enthusiasts with vision problems, many of who often participate in crowded waters during events, a comfortable, water-tight and safe prescription swimming mask that ensures 20/20 vision.

With a lightweight and hydrodynamic twin lens design, the new Polycarbonate lightweight, UV protected and scratch resistant mask can adapt to any water environment.  Forgan’s unique, and now patented, TR90 ‘snap in’ prescription lens ‘Inzert’ can be fitted with the wearer’s exact prescription.  Lens options include polarized sun or ophthalmic lenses including Single Vision, Bifocals and Varifocals. 

Aquaviz® Pro lenses come compete with Ffreedom® Anti Fog, a premium anti fog lens treatment combining hydrophilic and hydrophobic properties, which allow moisture to disperse evenly into an invisible micro thin layer across the surface of the lens, while guaranteeing clear and fog free vision at all times. 

Forgan’s design keeps comfort and safety front of mind, with a dive quality hypoallergenic latex-free black TPR skirt, that securely adapts to a wide range of face shapes.  A single TPR gasket design ensures a snug fit, with pressure distributed evenly over the cheekbones and forehead.  This reduces the risk of headaches, uncomfortable and unsightly ‘goggle eye’ and also protects the wearer from painful knocks to the sensitive eye area during competitive pool or open water swimming.  A silicone adjustable head strap ensures the mask stays securely in place, with or without a swimming cap.

Aquaviz® creator Bob Forgan, who has been in the optical industry for almost 40 years and is managing director of Anglo Italian Optical, commented:

“My aim is to provide accessible and affordable, yet high quality and precise, sports eyewear for anyone who wears contact lenses or glasses.  Competitive swimmers often participate in crowded and arduous open water conditions and the new Aquaviz® Pro has been designed with comfort, safety and performance as a priority for these serious swimmers.”

The interchangeable prescription lens ‘Inzert’ also fits into other Sportviz® and Aquaviz® products including Snorkel and Ski masks.
