I have great teeth little problems with my teeth beyond fillings and now that I am getting on in years refillings. No braces, no root canals, no whitening, or no caps.
However, I am as blind as Mr. Magoo, and skiing blind is a bad thing.
However, I have been this way most of my life so I am used to dealing with it. When I started skiing I once again started wearing contact lenses. I have skied with glasses on and it is a pain. Two more surfaces between your eyes and the visuals around you. Double the fogging surfaces. A couple of weekends ago I had to ski with my glasses and goggles and it was a pain. I had to be careful taking my goggles off due to defogging on the way up the lift and of course I do not want the glasses to come flying off on the ride up. Then, when putting the goggles back on I would have to fiddle when putting the goggles back on.
I understand there are goggles designed for skiers such as myself. However, I go for contact lenses rather than glasses when I ski. One less piece of gear to break up or gouge myself when I perform snow gymnastics.
In fact, I have discussed specific problems with my contact lenses with my ophthalmologist Dr. Joe Stradel. I would be skiing down a hot run and it seemed like a lens in one of my eyes would get pushed out of position by the air pressure. Dr. Stradel did not bat an eye, diagnosed the problem, and suggested an alteration to my prescription. Now I can see just fine flying down the hottest of runs.
So, unless I am boneheaded and lose a lens or run out (both are bonehead maneuvers) I ski with contact lenses and goggles, or contacts and my Smith Sliders.
