Thank You for nice and helpful answers for my query! I have
tried contact lenses w/ goggles when swimming and noticed that this is the
way I'm going to solve my problem. That's especially when swimming in
open water. One or two persons said that these lenses could get the
chlorine from the water in pool and thus irritate one's eyes. I
believe that it is true when You have problems also without contact
lenses in pool. For me this solution hasn't caused any harm yet!
Another thing with these lenses that was positive surprise for me was
the fact that You can't drop or loose the lens easily. I'm however
going to purchase also goggles w/ perscription (or what hell of the
word it was :-)) just in case the chlorine begins to irritate my eyes.
Keep on lapping the pool - I'm going to move on in open water!
