I'm going to climb Kilimanjaro this summer and I would like to know if any people have experiences about using contact lenses at this altittude, problems with low temperatures or similar. Besides, I've heard that Diamox could have secondary effects (dangerous)in people with high myopia, changing the eye pressure.Is it true? Besides, it could decrease blood pressure causing faint, couldn't it? Finally, I'd like to know how many doses and in which time people use it in the summit, to avoid the most as possible, to go to the "restroom". Thanks for all in advance.
