Can I dive wearing contact lenses?

If you are use to use contact lenses while doing water sports, diving is not much different, just that with the mask you won’t be able to rub your eyes to fix the contact lenses in case it moves.

Here some advices:

If you flood your mask make sure you keep your eyes colsed not to lose the lenses.

If you are a usual diver a very good alternative is to fix your own prescripted mask. There are very reasonably-priced masks. We can order it for you, all we need is a good prescription from your optometrist and we can have it ready for when you come to dive in Santorini. Contact us (link) for info about prices and timing.
