I am starting my open water class in jan. I wear contact lens and I was wondering would there be a problem with this. I am aware that I can get lens for my mask that are prescription but I want to avoid that if all possible. Can you give me a little insight on this. thanks

What i do is:
*Either dont wear them, because underwater you can see better than on the surface.

*Or keep them in, and if you want to clear your mask shut your eyes.
