contacts or glasses?

I have very poor eyesite. I have been wearing glasses when kayaking, as I am worried if I have contacts in and they get washed out or fouled, I would be screwed. Glasses, however, are a bit dangerous, as in stormy conditions they tend to fog up, and the water drops on the lenses make it even harder to see the waves coming. Its often dicy to take a hand off the paddle to wipe them. Does anyone kayak regularily with contacts, and is my concern about losing the contacts while under water justified?
