    When I was young I remember sometimes I could go under the water and
    open my eyes and be able to see things around me without any
    discomfort. Unfortunately I rarely go swimming anymore and I never
    take baths (only shower) so I didn't get a chance to test this out

    Is this the same for everyone? And if so, why do people wear goggles
    when they go swimming?

    I was told that "can swim" means swimming with open eyes. You must see what
    is around. All swimmers did. Goggles are a modern invention. With goggles is
    more comfortable.
