14th Century: The first recorded version of goggles may have been polished or layers of polished tortoise shells in Persia
16th Century: The Persian goggles were imported to Venice.
18th Century: Polynesian skin divers used deep wooden frames. By keeping the face facing downward, air was trapped and protected the eyes from the salt water. Once glass became available (in Polynesia from European explorers) they were the first to incorporate glass lenses, though they were not fully waterproof and were easily dislodged.
