    I think, atleast from what I have seen on here, is that after boot camp you can have your own glasses, as long as they don't automatically tint (transitions), and they don't make you stand out in formation due to outlandish design and/or color. I believe there are more regulations, but that may sum it up. Someone who knows more than I do should be able to answer if I am mistaken, or left something out. However, I don't know any of the regulations concerning contacts.

    You can wear your own contacts or glasses after boot camp. You just can't walk around looking like Elton John or wearing contacts with designs on them.
