I’m typing this on Saturday afternoon after a pleasant ride through the Santa Cruz Mountains. My vision is a little blurry, however, because I lost my left contact lens as I zoomed down the 14% grade of Empire Grade Road at 40 mph. I tell you it’s a little terrifying traveling at that speed and suddenly you can’t see where you’re going.
Losing contacts when I go fast is a consistent problem for me. I’ve worked with my eye doctor and tried everything — some contacts stay in my eyes a little better than others, but about the only thing that keeps my contacts from falling out is ski goggles.
I think the only thing that will really work is prescription sunglasses.
Does anybody else have this problem? What’s your solution?
