I took a surf lesson and got the following:
Splash/ sand in the eye in an abrasive way that put me out for 20 minutes and was bothering me for few more days
Bright tropical sun
Pros / cons of having them on for water protection vs visibility?
Maybe ones with larger/ wider "rim" that don't decrease field of vision?
Redness, burning & eyes watering for next few days
Surfers getting eye damage:
Surf Goggles being recommended:

- Especially, for people with prescriptions: https://www.facebook.com/Aquaviz/photos_stream
US sources of similar goggles: Now I'm leaning towards these as its US/ Amazon and easier to order compared to UK.
As a beginning learner spends more time splashing in Water, than surfing/ standing on the board.
Not sure, if there's benefit to any of them?
If they do not have any pros for a newbie/ beginner, would there be any benefit once you've picked up a bit of surfing foundation?
