In Response To: contacts or glasses? ()

Does anyone kayak regularily with contacts, and is my concern
: about losing the contacts while under water justified?
: Robert

I've worn contacts in and around the water for years and never lost one. I try not to open my eyes underwater (I've occasionally done so without any problem, but I try to wear a mask or goggles if I'm going to need to see underwater), but I don't take any other precautions around water. I don't worry a whole lot about losing a contact because mine are disposables that are discarded after two weeks anyway, so I'm not nearly as careful as I used to be about them, but I still have yet to lose one.
