Default Re: Question about getting into amateur boxing

I am blind as a bat..i wear soft contacts..disposable..i have boxed on and off for 15 years now...sparred plenty of rounds, had several fights..i have only gotten a lens knocked out a few times..and if that just keep on fighting and your no worse off than you would be if you hadn't had it in. The only problem can be is if it gets knocked up your eye under your eye lid...i could see having to stop for that...but that has never happened to me. The fights I have had, they never gave me a issue about contacts. I have sparred done mitt work without them..but my eye sight is so bad that I think it does negatively impacts me.
