What’s the best way to look after my eyes while I’m travelling?
Breaking your glasses or losing a contact is annoying at the best of times. But if it happens while you’re on vacation, the consequences can be devastating. Prepare yourself:
• See your optometrist, update your glasses prescription and keep a written copy with you.
• Order a supply of daily disposable contacts to last your trip – a new pair every day, and no solution required. Never sleep in your contacts.
• Bring sunglasses that offer UV protection.
• Pack a spare pair of glasses, contact lenses and lubricating eyedrops in your carry-on.
• Avoid swimming with your contacts as ocean or pool water can be contaminated.
• If you develop an eye infection, stop wearing your contacts and switch to glasses. See a local optometrist or doctor immediately.
Enjoy your trip!
