Default Snorkeling--contacts or glasses

Can I wear my contacts behind the snorkel mask? Will I get salt
water in my eyes? Can I wear my glasses? No time to get a p
Prescription mask so don't suggest that. What is the
best approach? Please reply asap. Leave in 3 days.

I have always worn my contacts and not had a problem. I have been told that the nature magnifying of the water means that you don't need correctives at all...but I've neevr tried it without.

Wear your contacts! Glasses do not work as they prevent a seal. If you get salt water in your eyes, don't worry about it as the saline solution you use all the time is just that, salt water.

, Robo!!!

Not quite the same.

And the worry I always have is if my mask fills and my lenses get washed out then I'll be blind until I can get to my glasses.

But that worry ahsn't stopped me yet.
