I made it to fifty without boating with glasses, but a retinal detachment from a mountain bike crash has me wanting to see better on the river.

Anyone care to share their successful experiences with eye correction and kayaking? Contacts have disappeared after the first rapid, leaving me with even weaker vision since my eyes adjust to the lenses. I've tried glasses, but they seem to fog instantly after a roll if the water is at all cold, though I think I could deal with the water drops. Suggestions?
