Currently, many swimming goggle lenses use optical plates to maintain zero refractive power in air and water. However, people’s widespread use of 3C products has increased myopia significantly, so lenses have a demand for refractive power. Lenses will have different refractive power problems in water and air media. Therefore, we solved the refractive power change in air and water by using a plane Fresnel lens with a diopter to replace plano-concave lenses. In this study, a first-order design was created and then the microstructure of the Fresnel lens was optimized using optical software. The Fresnel lens simulation results showed that the error was within 5%, which was compared with the data using the lensmaker’s equation calculation. For swimming goggles, this error value is tolerable for human vision.
