Swimming goggles aid swimmers in protecting their eyes from impact, preventing exposure to hazardous materials present in the pool water, and in providing clear vision in the swimming environment. Still, these properties do not fulfil the problems faced by swimmers who are affected by Dysopia or visual impairment. This project focuses on investigating such potential users who are not satisfied by the commonly available swimming goggle designs and suffer from various types of problems during swimming activities.
Investigation of the design parameters for a Prescription Swimming Goggles (PSG) is a major component of this study. This knowledge supports the research work in terms of development of a design protocol for prescription swimming goggles for visually impaired people. User-centered design methodology is applied for the market analysis and the investigated design parameters are used in order to establish the design protocol.
