Can You Skydive With Glasses Or Contact Lenses?

October 8, 2020

Can you tandem skydive with glasses or contacts? Absolutely. The amazing view is one of the many things that make skydiving as extraordinary as it is. We don't want you to miss out on the breathtaking sights if you are one of the countless individuals who were not gifted with perfect vision, so don't fret if you wear glasses or contacts.

Worried about wearing your glasses when you skydive? Don't worry too much. At Skydive Danielson, we can provide you with a pair of goggles that are made to fit over your prescription glasses. These goggles should help to keep wind out of your eyes and and prevent your glasses from falling off during free fall. Just to be safe, however, consider wearing an old pair that you can risk losing.

If you own both glasses and contacts, your best option is to wear your contacts during your skydive. Not only will it be more convenient for you to choose contacts over glasses, but you are also less likely to lose contacts during free fall. The regular goggles we will provide you with should keep your contacts from waving goodbye to your eyeballs and embarking on a solo dive to the ground.

Are Goggles Necessary For My First Tandem Skydive?

Definitely. Even you don't wear glasses or contacts, goggles are essential for skydiving. We jump from an altitude of 14,000 feet at Skydive Danielson, so your free fall will be a whole minute long. If your eyes are easily irritated by a breeze, imagine having 120 mph winds blasting you directly in your peepers for a full 60 seconds. Even if goggles weren't required for protection against the elements, you wouldn't be able to keep your eyes open during free fall without them, which means you would miss out on the view during what many consider the most exhilarating part of a skydive. We want you to experience everything that makes skydiving as remarkable as it is, so wearing goggles is a must.
