Dangers of swim goggles: true or false?
March 4, 2005 8:57 AM Subscribe
When I was young, I was instructed not to wear swim goggles for any water activity that could force water at them, like waterskiing or diving headfirst off a diving board. The theory was that strong contact could pull one's eyeball out of its socket as a result of the suction and vacuuming that would occur on impact with the water. Fact or fiction?
