Make your own prescription swimming goggles


Step 4: Step 3: mount the lens to your goggles

1: Roll the sugru into thin sausages.

2: Place the sausage around the rim of the goggles.

3: Gently but firmly press your prescription lens onto the sugru making sure that there are no gaps.

4: Gently press / rub the sugru to get a good finish. Use soapy water for a super smooth finish.

5: Leave to cure.

6: Go swimming :)

There are 2 yellow comment boxes within the first photo in step 4. One is completely within the other and I have been unable to see what it says because the outer box always comes up first.

oops, thanks, just fixed that now.
Awesome. Great 'ible, BTW!
I looked at the code that powers those boxes. It says "Make your sausages long enough to wrap lie underneath the edge of the lenses."
