If you are caught at a certain angle the contact may slip, slide, or fall but there are a ton of professional atheletes who wear contacts. I have noticed quite a few fights pause momentarily because of them so I believe that contacts are more or less viewed in the same perspective as mouth pieces.
This is a great thread because I was wondering the same thing but didnt think about it until I read this. I was told to take them out because if I were to get knocked out they would role back in my eye does anyone know if this is true?
No I dont fight like y'all but me and my friends used to use chokeholds to knock eachother out for fun (sorry but right when you wake up it feels good ) and I never had my contact roll back in my eye.
