"I just wanted to follow up on the order I placed for my son a few weeks ago. He's 14 years old and you made some prescription goggle inserts for his POC goggle. Anyway, he's a racer and he says that he's never skied with such confidence. The inserts don't fog, they don't jiggle around like his glasses used to, and they're more comfortable. He says he can focus on gates better than he could previously and he can therefore anticipate turns better, as well. You guys were easy to work with, and thanks for getting them back to us in time for his race."
