I would like to know where I can purchase prescription goggles for judo.
Many of the better optical shops offer specialty eyewear that includes protective prescription lenses. They are commonly used in ball sports like racquetball and handball. Judo is somewhat different than ball sports with regard to protection issues and may require special safety considerations, devices or both to keep the protective eyewear from being dislodged from your face during judo. I do not know where you live, but I am certain that if you begin calling the better optical shops in your area or speak with your ophthalmologist (Eye M.D.) you will not have too much trouble finding suitable protective eyewear.
