I need advice. I want to play in the waves, but I need to wear eye
correction. When I swim or boogie board, I wear my contacts and try to
keep my head out of the water because when I dive under waves very fine
particles of sand get washed into my eyes, even though I keep my eyes
shut under water and even when the wave looks pretty clear. This
sand-in-the-eyes is majorly no fun and renders me helpless. So to try
sailing, I thought I might buy some prescription sport glasses, but I'm
afraid I'll loose them in the rinse zone, even using chums. What do
wave sailors who need eye correction do?
