Am I pretty much stuck with contacts? I have a pretty bad phobia of putting things in my eye. In fact, it's damned near impossible to get me to put eyedrops in my eye, it's that bad, so the thought of contacts isn't too thrilling. Is there some other magic alternative to getting contact lenses in this situation?
You should be OK. Just make sure you pickup the anti-fog spray that is sold at most hockey shops. You spray it on, its a cleaner/anti fog agent that will help prevent your glasses from fogging as you sweat. Otherwise they will fog up quickly.
