Scuba Diving with Contact Lenses

Scuba Diving with Contact Lenses

20140310-155924.jpg

Scuba diving is a fun activity and it is a pity to miss out on all the action because you can’t see!

Although there are prescription diving masks, these are an expensive option. If you can wear contact lenses it is perfectly safe and easy to wear them when diving.

However, if you are learning to dive, you will need to ‘clear your mask’ (over and over again!), until you have mastered that technique. Mask clearing (letting the water in your mask and then getting it out again), is a sure fire way to lose your lenses, unless you have your eyes closed during the whole exercise. Tell your diving instructor that you wear contact lenses and ask for his advice while learning this technique – he will probably tell you to clear your mask with your eyes shut.

Another risk is getting your masked ‘kicked off’ or displaced during a dive. If you look around to find your mask, you can lose your lenses! Try to find your with one eye, at least then you only stand a chance of losing one lens and can complete the dive – better still get your buddy to find it!
