Abstract
Aircrew in the Canadian Forces who require optical correction are required to wear conventional spectacles. The use of contact lenses would alleviate many problems posed by eyeglasses. Concern has been expressed that contact lenses may slip excessively, or be lost from the eye under conditions of increased +Gz. It has been confirmed that standard 15 mm HEMA soft contact lenses are suitable for aircrew who do not experience more than 5.1 +Gz at eye level.
