Contact lens wearers and swimming

21 years ago

Hi. Sorry... Stupid question... I'm not quite sure where to post this. Anyway...

I need my contacts. I am blind without them. (I refuse to wear glasses.) Anyway, I am very uncomfortable in the water, but would like to get myself more at ease in the water, but am afraid that I'd lose a contact and panic and will never learn to become a strong swimmer. What do you think? Is there no hope for this 29 year old? I don't know why, but I've always been pretty terrified of the water, but feel so envious (and embarrassed) that I'm a very weak swimmer. I guess you could say I'm hitting a mid life crisis and swimming is one of the accomplishments I'd like to achieve before hitting 30. Help!
