Possible waterski application?
Can you even wear contacts when skiing?

I know quite a few people that ski/foot/board with contacts.

I ski with them but usually with only one eye open. For some reason I always seem to get spray in one of them and I feel like it is going to come out.
This is pretty cool. I have always been sensitive to sunlight ever since I started wearing contacts and hate to take the sunglasses off to ski.

I don't know that there would be an advantage for waterskiing...never found that seeing the bouy was my reason for missing it.
That being said, you can (and I do) wear contacts for waterskiing. I use the disposable ones so it wouldn't be a big deal if I lost one. I have been skiing for about 10 years with them without incident.
BTW, the accuvue lenes that wear have some UV filtering built in.

Ive been skiing, Bare footing, jet skiing, scuba diving the last 20 years and think I only ever lost a lens once. Disposables are so cheap now anyway you can afford the odd lens being washed away.

I am nearly blind without my lenses and ski with them all the time. Like others have mentioned, I wear disponsables so that its not a big $$$ hit to loose one. I probably loose a couple pair a season (Apr - Nov) in total.

I've been skiing for 31 years wearing contacts and have never had a problem or lost a contact.

I read about those colored contact lenses a while ago-maybe last year. Hadn't heard of them since. Would be interesting to try, but as already mentioned, I can't blame my contacts for not getting more buoys yet!
I ski & foot with contacts, and haven't lost one yet, even with some nasty faceplants. Sometimes the spray does bug me when getting up, but it's better than skiing without them.
