    Is it better to wear contacts or glasses during Swab Summer?

    You can wear contacts if you want...I know many people in my company did. However, you'll have to be careful because sometimes pink eye makes the rounds. Also, you'll have very limited time to actually put them in. As you get used to the routine, you'll figure out what works best for you. Definitely bring your glasses though.

    My DD (on the advice of eye doctor) purchased daily wear contacts. She would put them in at night, sleep in them and then wear them the next day. Then she would throw them away at night and put in a fresh pair. She had no time in the morning to put in contacts. The eye doctor did not recommend extended wear contacts as they have a higher rate of eye infections than the daily wear. DD also wore glasses throughout the summer to give her eyes a rest. After SWAB summer, she returned to her normal contacts and does not sleep in them. Check with your eye doctor.

    DS went with glasses during Swab Summer, far less potential for problems when there's no time for problems.

    I wore glasses. The cadre in my company didn't allow contacts.
