by - 6:23:00 PM

Going on a vacation is a great time to relax and unwind from the hassles of everyday living. Unfortunately, if you don't pack well beforehand, you can accidentally cause even more stress than normal while on the go. Fortunately, to help keep your vacation fun and stress-free, here are five eye care essentials for traveling contact lens wearers:

1. Pack extra eye care supplies.

To avoid having to look for specific supplies in an unknown area, it's very handy to pack extra eye care supplies for the trip. For example, you should pack extra solutions and an extra contact lens holding case. By having everything you need handy, you will not need to worry about replenishing anything if you should run out or have something become lost or broken.

2. Take your prescription with you.

If something should happen to your contacts while you're away from home, you may need to purchase a new pair. Fortunately, if you take your prescription with you, you'll be able to order a new pair through a clinic or online as needed.

When shopping online, you may be able to get contact lenses without your optician's details being required. However, when using such sites, such as the Lenstore website, just be sure that every detail of the prescription you input is correct. As long as your prescription is updated, you should be able to order contact lenses that suit your needs without issues.

3. Take your eye doctor's contact information with you.

Even while on vacation, illnesses and accidents can happen. When traveling, be sure to have your eye doctor's contact information handy. If you should develop an eye infection, your eye doctor may be able to give you advice over the phone. In fact, your eye doctor may also be able to order eye care medications from nearby pharmacies for you as well.

4. Bring your sunglasses.

Sunglasses are designed to help protect your eyes from harmful UV rays. Unfortunately, many people still don't wear their sunglasses as needed. Although many people only wear sunglasses on sunny days, they are also beneficial during overcast days as well.

When choosing a pair of sunglasses, you need to consider a number of different factors. However, no matter what pair of sunglasses you choose, just be sure to always choose one that meets European safety standards. By choosing a high quality pair of sunglasses, you can help keep your eyes healthy for years to come.

5. Consider buying a travel kit.

To make traveling with your extra supplies easier, you may want to consider buying a traveling kit. By storing everything you need for your eye care in one convenient bag, you will not have to stress about anything getting lost. Fortunately, there are many different types of travel kits available, so comparison shopping will help yield the best options and prices.

With these five tips, you can enjoy your next trip without having to worry about affecting your everyday eye care routine.
