My name is Jasmine, I am 15 years old and I have been a year round competitive swimmer since I was 6 years old. I have been wearing contacts for the last six months and they have made a tremendous difference in my swimming performance.
I have always loved my glasses and treated them like a cool accessory for all of my outfits however, they would leave indentions and marks on my nose and most importantly I couldnt wear them in the water for practice or meets. Since water blurs your vision somewhat anyways the addition of having poor vision equals a not so great experience. I had difficulty judging my true distance to the wall when doing my flips turns, I could not see the competition in the pool next to me, and I could not see my coaches when they were giving us instruction at practice. Which we all know thats kind of important. :-) Overall my contacts have given me more freedom to be more active and to perform at the top of my game!!! Thanks Coopervision!
