My husband wears glasses most of the time but he will occassionally wear contacts when it is more convienent, ie at an amusememt park where they may fly off his face on a ride.
We do plan on snorkeling a few times in Aruba and I was wondering if it would be better for him to wear contacts and a regular mask or to get a prescription mask.
Is there anyone out there who has this same situation?
Thanks for the info. I will let him know what you think and see what he wants to do. I checked that website out and those are much less expensive than the masks I found at other online stores. Getting the mask so much cheaper will definately be good lol!
Well Aaron snorkeled a lot as a child and teenager and he is wanting to go a few places that have really nice snorkeling so the mask would not just be for one trip. It does however seem that would probably just be easier for him to wear the contacts the days we snorkel so that way he is not either blind (he is like Lisa and can't see ANYTHING without the glasses) and having to wear the mask all the time or we have to keep up with his glasses when we are in the water.

I purposely got contacts before a cruise so I could snorkel. Like Lisa said, I think it would be hard to get used to the mask and kind of inconvenient if your eyesight is bad (mine is!). I've never had a problem wearing contacts while snorkeling.
