In short: yes, you can! We provide special goggles for you to wear over your glasses or contact lenses.

A wide variety of the United States' populace has some type of vision correction requirement that they satisfy with the use of eyeglasses or contact lenses. As many people could probably imagine, enjoying the scenic views while swooping back down to the earth is one of the top benefits of skydiving. Who would want to miss falling through a cloud or the sight of their chute opening for the first time? When you elect to soar through the air with Gold Coast, know that we have you covered (literally) with the tech you need to get the most out of your experience.

Skydiving in Glasses

With countless skydives under our belt, we've seen it all and then some, and we don't want you to miss out on the vistas yourself as you live the experience of an eagle in flight. Skydiving goggles are robust, easy to wear, and aerodynamic for high speed, low drag. There are even prescription skydiving goggles with custom lenses for those who intend on regularly skydiving or going for their skydiving license. Just like you slip on your glasses every day, so too will you with your skydiving goggles so that you can savor soaring through the air in function and style.

Skydiving in Contacts

Contacts have been a convenient choice for decades; there are no lenses to get scratched or frames to worry about bending. If you are a person that elects for contacts over traditional eyewear, our normal skydiving goggles can be worn to keep even the smallest of contact lenses in place while you careen towards the ground at a brisk 120 mph.

Skydiving if Visually Impaired

If your eyesight is handicapped in some way that isn't remedied by corrective lenses, don't allow that to stop you from kissing the air. Tandem skydiving is still a possibility, even for the blind, and we're always interested in trying to accommodate people with disabilities so that they can enjoy the sport of skydiving to the fullest. Contact us with questions you might have about skydiving with a visual impairment or if you've had LASIK surgery, and we'll be happy to address them.
