i don t wear glasses while practicing sports. it s blurry past 15m ( can t read signs, can t see tangles near the kite), as far as i see other kites, kiters, their lines.... it s good enough
but i wear sunglasses, all the time.... sun is not my eye's friend.
Please Voodospirit be careful out there......my nearsighted fellow kiter
Do you find yourself asking people on the beach what size kite people are on......
.....because you can't really see sharply that far ?
Can you really tell how much the wind is blowing also ?
Do like Toby does ( and me )..very simple....get fitted with some soft contact lenses
There has been great advancements in 2012....we can fit almost any RX power
....even with strong astigmatism
I personally only wear my single vision distance RX soft lenses when Kitesurfing
The rest of the time...work.....etc...i wear all purpose digital progressive (ar) anti-reflective eyewear
I even have a pair of digital progressive (ar) just for computer and near only...when i do KF
Find yourself a great optician and bring him your RX's for glasses and contacts
........for 2013...make yourself see perfect...do not limit yourself....to 15 meters distance
Thank you again for your comment
