Yes, I've been diving with my contacts for several years. If you have to clear a flooded mask or remove/replace it underwater, you might want to keep your eyes closed or squinted. But I also carry an extra pair of contacts with me as a backup, in case I do happen to lose one on a dive.

I do.  But I have never had to take my mask off while wearing them.

You can, but best to close your eyes before removing your mask and also while clearing your flooded mask. Prescriptions lenses are available for your mask also.
