    Hello all.
    Due to the fact that i can't find goggles that fit my wide and deep face
    anywhere, I began lately to swim without goggles at all.
    It actualy feels great, but my concern is that i might cause damage to
    the eye tissue by exposing it to fraction with water or to infacted water.
    Let me just add what when i was using goggles thay were putting quite a lot
    of pressure around my eyes (probably because thay were to small for me,
    but they are big as thay get ), so my concern when i do
    use goggles is that putting pressure on and around the eye tissue and
    decreasing blood flow can by itself be damaging.
    In both cases i don't have any immidiete damage to vision, i just worry about
    long term damages.
    Thanks in advance !

    Try a mask if googles don't fit.

    Small risk of eye infection from water in the eyes... I wouldn't lose
    too much sleep over it though.

    I had the same problem for years, but kept trying and eventually found a
    pair that fit... keep searching! Maybe you could adapt the strap (make
    your own?) to suit your head size.
