Originally, this article was simply the word "yes" repeated over and over, interspersed with some thoughts about why wearing goggles was a good idea. I wrote it like that because I honestly feel there shouldn't be any discussion about it. You NEVER see questions like "Do I have to wear shows when I play squash?". It's such a strange question, and I feel the same can be said for goggles.

Here are those phrases I used: every squash players should at least try them, a little discomfort is worth the protection, we wear helmets without complaining, they are not expensive, they will last for years, rackets can be replaced – not eyes, find the model that suits you, use a headband to stop them steaming up, i hope you will never need them
