Liquivision Fluid Goggles - The Original Fluid Goggles
What are Fluid Goggles?
Fluid Goggles are swim goggles filled entirely with saline solution and fitted with special lenses so you can see underwater with no air space in front of your eyes.
While they are mostly used by freedivers, they can also be used by scubadivers as a mask backup.
What is the difference between diving with a regular mask and Fluid Goggles?
When you are freediving on a single breath, air is a precious commodity. With Fluid Goggles, you will no longer need to waste precious air to equalize your mask during your dive, and leaving you more air to dive and equalize deeper than ever before. Nor will you ever worry about mask squeeze or mask flooding, as Fluid Goggles are already filled with saline solution. Having water on your eyes will enhance your apnea reflex and give you an even better feel for the water. And for whatever you are doing underwater, you’ll never need a hand to equalize. Just use a noseclip, like the Trygons Noseclip (to be exclusively distributed in North America by Liquivision from August 1, 2010).
Fluid Goggle History
Fluid Goggles were invented in 1988 by Eric Fattah, and he shipped the first units to customers in October of that year. He developed the Fluid Goggles in an effort to create equipment that would help him set a new freediving World Record in the Constant Weight discipline. He finally achieved his goal in August 2001, when he set a new CWT World Record of -82m while wearing Fluid Goggles. His most recent performance while wearing Fluid Goggles was in April 2010, when he set a new North American CWT Record of -100m.
