I wear contacts. Does anyone else? The thought of glasses does not appeal to me but my vision is really bad so not being able to see clearly would be frustrating during the bike/run portion. Anyone have any ideas or experience. I'm thinking of just taking a chance and wearing my lenses during the swim and hope they don't come out or water doesn't get into my goggles.

Toe Jam has already suggested lasik. Maybe one day!!! But for now any thoughts?

I wore contacts for 3 years until I got surgery...i wore a mask type of goggle by aquamask they dont come off once suction onto your face it worked well and i never had a problem. the only thing that stinks is it will burn your eyes a bit from sweat on the run.

have you thought about getting prescription sunglasses? Also I know you can get dive masks with corrective lenses, I'm not sure if you can with goggles, but it would be worth looking into. I have also heard that at many tri's they have a glasses table for after the swim. If you did go the route of glasses, you should look into to this with the race director of your tris you enter.

I wear contacts,and have had a problem with goggle leakage in the past. I tried a pair of Aquasphere Kaiman (Caiman?) goggles and haven't had a problem since.
