CONTACT LENSES FOR SWIMMING

Do you wish you could enjoy swimming or other water sports without worrying about your contact lenses? Would you like to dive or swim under water without thinking? To splash around in the pool with your children? Overnight vision correction contact lenses which you only wear while sleeping and not during the day, means that swimming with great eyesight can now be as natural as the day you were born!


WHAT ARE THE BEST CONTACT LENSES TO WEAR WHEN SWIMMING?
None at all, is the short answer.

WHAT PROBLEMS ARE CAUSED BY SWIMMING IN CONTACT LENSES?
Many people go swimming and enjoy various watersports wearing their contact lenses but in reality contact lenses are not designed to get wet.

Contact lenses are porous and can pick up chemicals and bacteria from swimming pool and sea water which adhere to the lens and irritate the eye. Sometimes this can be quite serious.

Other problems with swimming in contact lenses are just the inconvenience. They can move, fall out and you always have to be careful not to get them wet. This takes away the pleasure of being in the water because you can never fully relax.

WHAT ARE THE ALTERNATIVES TO SWIMMING CONTACT LENSES?
Until recently the only alternative to swimming in contact lenses was to look silly wearing glasses or swim blindly bumping into things. Serious swimmers of course might invest in prescription swimming goggles or you could risk wearing normal swimming goggles over your contact lenses. Of course laser vision correction is an alternative but it is not everybody's cup of tea. At the end of the day nothing beats natural vision and so overnight vision correction contact lenses are the perfect answer.

HOW DOES OVERNIGHT VISION CORRECTION WORK?
It is a very simple idea. During sleep, specially shaped contact lenses reshape the surface of the eye over the pupil to correct the angle at which the light enters the eye. The lenses are worn every night to maintain the effect during waking hours.
