    Can you swim with contact lenses in? Also if not, can you get special contact lenses for when you go swimming, or even can you buy special goggles with lenses in or something, just so i can see when im actually swimming lol

    yeah you can buy prescription goggles, but where from is a different matter, have you tried asking your opticians, im sure they'd be the best people to ask

    You can get goggles and dive masks with your lenses in... they're expensive though.

    Also not sure (ask your optician) but I think I was told I could swim in them but should take them out straight afterwards because of the chlorine and other stuff getting stuck between your lenses and your eyes.

    it is definately not advised!!! however like mentioned by thefish uk, if u wanna risk it - then take em out staight afterwads!
    i buy dailys for occasions like that - and just chuck em out after i been swimming - some ppl may say thats wastin money, but u cant put a price on ur health - let alone ur eyesight! so its worth it!

    I've bought those daily disposables for going on holiday, so I can just bin them after I've been swimming.

    I normally wear monthly disposables, but I don't fancy getting them damaged with the chlorine, so I've bought the daily ones instead.

    I was under the impression you're not supposed to....if you do, wear tight fitting goggles.

    What the hell are you talking about? Do you not think if that was actually true then they would be doing the same kind of thing medically :p:

    I swim with contacts in, but only when i'm wearing my decent well sealed goggles
