    This is a really dumb question - considering I've had the lenses for over 2 years but I've never thought about it until now, but is it okay to go on theme park rides wearing lenses? I'm on a trip to Alton Towers on Thursday and am planning on going on as much as possible, so for example the Oblivion, am I okay to wear the lenses going at the speed it'll be going?

    I'm sure it will be as people wear them during sports etc and they've never once fell out of my eye in any condition I've ever been in so...

    I've worn them on Air, Nemesis and some others I can't remember and I kept my eyes open on most rides. I didn't go on Oblivion though (too scared hah). You should be fine but take some spare incase.

    Yes of course. If you're that worried, shut your eyes?

    Btw singular - 1 lens, several lenses.

    Shouldn't do, especially seeing as on most rides the wind will be blowing against your face.

    You should be fine, but you could always take a pair of glasses just in case.

    Yeah, I think you should be fine. I'm a roller-coaster addict and I've been on some of the biggest and fastest coasters in the world with mine in, and never had a problem.

    you'll be fine - if you have long hair though you might want to tie it up to make sure your hair doesnt whip into your eyes and whip your contacts out

    The only thing I would be cautious about is the log flume/river rapid type rides. I went on a log flume last week with my contacts in and the splash of water dislodged one of my lenses. It came back with some blinking but it isn't pleasant to find yourself half blind. But I dunno, I might have just not shut my eyes in time like a normal person

    Pish, roller-coasters are absolutely fine - i'm sure.

    i've managed 134m bungy jump with them in, and they were fine.....oh and a 12500ft skydive....though i wore a pair of goggles for that...

    there completely fine to wear they wont fall out although as the person above say if ur rubbing your eyes to get rid of water they could do !

    the only other thing that mite happen is your eye mite get very dry, as on the rollercoaster the wind is constantly blowing in your eyes so you mite feel them get dry and a tad uncomfertable but this doesnt cause any damage just take soem solution and your glasses with you just incase they get a bit uncomfertable

    Have fun

    My lenses at six monthly ones, so unfortunately taking a spare pare isn't an option. But luckily, if one did fly out my new ones are ready for collection I found out today. :p: I'll just take some eye drops and my glasses just in case.
