    for past 15 years i always dive with contact lenses with no problems. I take them out after a day of diving and use a new pair the next day.

    I dive with contacts and haven't had any issues. I did consider getting perscription lenses added to my mask but decided against that - I wouldn't be able to see without my mask on which would be a pain and potentially risky if I lost my mask. Biggest problem I've had diving with contacts - realising half way to the dive site that I still had my glasses on and having to race back home to change :)

    I dive with one contact in. Though technically I need correction in both eyes, I have been using monovision for the past couple of years and love it. I can read my guages and see distance clearly. I do not miss out significantly on peripheral vision and do not need guage reader inserts. I do not miss the second contact. I have over 1500 dives on contacts and have never lost one.
