    Contact Lenses

    Hello, I have only sparred a little but everytime my contact lenses (daily disposible) get knocked out due to punches/sweat. This is very disorientating and also embarrasing when I have to try to pick it out from behind my eye if it hasn't popped out completly. Is there a solution to this like maybe sport lenses or something?

    Not that I've found. If you can take them out, and the guy in front doesn't become a giant blur, just dump them before training. Put in some fresh ones afterwards or bring your backup glasses for the drive home.

    Ok I guess I will just have to bring spares.. I thought that there would be ones that didnt fall out maybe. Laser surgery is my goal but I need a bit more cash first. :P

    If you're like me and can't see well enough to strike without the lenses in, keep your chin tucked, hands up, and shoulders rolled. Proper posture will go a long way towards keeping your lenses in.

    Also Indy's advice is good, keep spare lenses and/or glasses with you at all time.

    And NEVER put a lens back in if it falls out. Seriously. Put it in a case or, even better, toss it, but don't put it back in.

    If you buy daily disposables you can take a few with you, as putting contact lenses back in is really bad for the eyes. For some reason my contact lenses stay put now days, but they used to come out quite alot.

    I've only had a contact fall out once at practice, and it was when rolling in BJJ. Sometimes, I've had them get stuck up somewhere to the side or something, then drop back in position a little later, usually by just blinking, but sometimes I need to go to a mirror and pull it to the correct position.

    I only sometimes wear them, I like having them but I don't per say need them.

    I find that the main way for contacts fall out is when I rub my eyes. I thought they were going to fall out all the time at practice but this hasn't been my experience. Focus Dailies is the brand I use, I prefer them over the one other brand I've tried because I find them easier to put in.

    I'd recommend having spares with you too, in case one falls out

    I would recommend trying to not wear them if this is possible. I wear glasses and have no choice but to take them off for training, but I would recommend training without them. I know several people that are legally blind, but are competant strikers just due to the fact that they learned "where to hit the blur" so to speak. If that doesn't work, I would go with the extra pair option mentioned before.

    I wear monthly-disposables and I've only had one come out once. It stuck on my opponents glove after he sneaked a cross in over my jab.

    I hate to ask, because it's pretty stupid, but why can't you put it back in? Simply because it's dirty? What if you grab it out from your eye before it commpletely falls out and hits the mat?
