    Hi,

    I would like to go paragliding but wear glasses/contact lenses and pretty much cannot see anything without them. Can anyone tell me what the deal is - do you wear special glasses/goggles anyway? Is it slightly pointless doing it if you're blind?!

    Thanks,

    Plenty of pilots wear glasses, you'll be fine. I did my hang gliding EP with glasses and it didn't prove a problem. Contacts should be fine too. If you go for glasses, just make sure they're attached somehow, you wouldn't want them falling off in mid air :eek:

    Wear contact lenses with sunglasses. Cycling ones are good.
