It has been reported that Innovega, who developed the iOptik system utilized in the construction of the contact lenses, has already entered into an agreement with the Pentagon and are confident they will be able to fulfill their contractual obligation by 2014, following the completion of the clinical trials as mandated by the United States Food and Drug Administration. The company is reportedly looking into public applications as well.

Otherwise I see no issue.
That was my first thought as well. I'm guessing we'd see new MOPP gear with the projectors built into the mask, or at least some kind of full cover helmet/goggle design.
What I'm interested in are the effects of long-term usage. I don't know if a full 120° FoV is part of the goal or not (I assume that would require personnel to have cameras on their person, but again, not sure) but even if they are used only to provide clear visual of everything near-and-far, it could be pretty jarring if someone grew accustomed to using them all the time suddenly lost that ability.
There has been contact lenses on the market for a number of years that is great vision enhancers, so spammer OP has introduced nothing new :P
